NFL Playoff Betting Odds:
The Eagles are in an eerily similar situation that they were last year. Although they weren’t as dominant in the regular season, Philly was able to lock up a spot in the playoffs. And right before their postseason run began, Philadelphia suffered an injury to starting quarterback Carson Wentz. But right on cue was Nick Foles who was ready to step in and lead this team to some December success. Foles was just what the Eagles needed to get the 16-15 win over Chicago this past weekend. However, the Bears are most dominant on defense – the opposite of the Saints. To come out on top this Sunday, Philly will need to outscore one of the most prolific offenses in the league. By the looks of it, the NFL playoff betting odds are banking on the Eagles coming up short.
Players to Watch: Nick Foles (1,413 passing yards, 21 TD, 7 INT), Josh Adams (511 rushing yards, 3 TD, 1 F), and Zach Ertz (1,163 receiving yards, 8 TD, 116 REC).
New Orleans Saints
The Saints come marching in well-rested following their Wild Card bye. Now New Orleans is hopeful that they can play as well as they’ve played all season long. All in all New Orleans finished the regular season with the 3rd best scoring offense in the league. Defensively they weren’t as dominant seeing as how they finished 22nd in scoring. The Eagles on the other hand, finished 18th in scoring and 12th in points allowed. If Brees and the Saints are able to jump to an early lead here, they’re likely to put too much pressure on the Eagles offense and their backup. This is likely the key to New Orleans’ victory this weekend.
Players to Watch: Drew Brees (3,992 passing yards, 32 TD, 5 INT), Alvin Kamara (883 rushing yards, 14 TD, 0 F), and Michael Thomas (1,405 receiving yards, 9 TD, 125 REC).
