Indianapolis Colts vs. Philadelphia Eagles NFL Betting Online Odds
Posted by: Mike Davis
The reigning Super Bowl champions suffered a massive setback this past NFL betting online weekend, conceding a 27-21 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The setback wasn’t gargantuan because it’s playoff implications. After all, it’s only Week 2. However, the loss was disastrous for Philly because of how poorly their defense looked on the day. All in all, the Eagles gave up a whopping 412 total yards on the day – 402 of which went to Ryan Fitzpatrick. Since Philly got to the Super Bowl riding their defensive prowess, this type of performance is concerning. Nevertheless, the defense will try to bounce back in this Sunday’s Indianapolis Colts vs. Philadelphia Eagles matchup. What kind of legal betting odds are they facing?

The Colts enter this weekend’s action sporting a 1-1 record. Since the Jags were successful in upsetting the New England Patriots this past weekend, the AFC South is currently heralded by the 2-0 Jaguars. Considering how dominant Jacksonville’s defense is, the Colts cannot afford to fall too far behind this early in the season. Having said that, it’s clear Indy needs to pick up a road win this Sunday. Unfortunately, beating the Eagles on the road is no easy task. The Birds defense is coming off a meager showing and will be eager to right that wrong. Bottom line, we can expect Philly to go after Luck. The question is, will Luck be able to stand in the pocket and deliver a rocket down the field? We saw Fitzpatrick do it this past Sunday. Why can’t Luck?
Players to Watch: Andrew Luck (498 passing yards, 4 TD, 3 INT), Jordan Wilkins (101 rushing yards, 0 TD, 0 F), and Ty Hilton (129 receiving yards, 2 TD, 12 REC).
The Eagles lost this past weekend not just because their defense failed to get their opponent off of the field, but because their offense failed to deliver late in the game. In fact, it was a last minute fumble that forced the Eagles to accept the loss. Ultimately the Eagles had 6 offensive drives in the second half, two of which ended in touchdowns. However, since two other ones ended in turnovers, the Eagles are coming off a loss. But the most important thing about this upcoming weekend is the fact that Carson Wentz will be making his long anticipated result. And judging by the type of performance Foles has had through two games, there’s zero controversy as to who will be starting this Sunday. Wentz has come off injuries before in his career and it’ll be interesting to see how he fares this time around.
Players to Watch: Nick Foles (451 passing yards, 1 TD, 1 INT), Jay Ajayi (85 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and Zach Ertz (142 receiving yards, 0 TD, 16 REC).
