The Eagles open their season at the Washington Redskins on Sunday, September 10th and Betonline.ag lists the Birds as 2.5 point underdogs. Typically, in an even contest, the road team is a three-point underdog. The Eagles are perceived to be, at least by Betonline.ag, slightly better than the Redskins.
Washington finished 8-7-1 last season, one spot ahead of the 7-9 Eagles in a strong NFC East division. The Eagles were 2-4 in divisional games last season, losing both games against the Redskins.
