Washington Football Team Game Sunday: Washington vs Eagles odds and prediction for NFL Week 15 game
By Jerry Trotta
The Washington Football Team’s winning streak has ended at four games, as they were unable to overcome a slow start against the Dallas Cowboys.
The discrepancy in talent between Washington and Dallas was evident. Luckily for the Football Team, however, they’ll get the chance to avenge that loss against a Philadelphia Eagles team that falls right into their weight class.
Both teams sit at 6-7, but Washington currently owns the inner-division and inner-conference tiebreakers over their rivals. With a win, the WFT would create a comfortable distance between itself and Philly. With a loss, you’re talking about the race getting even tighter before the final three games.
Let’s see what Vegas thinks about Washington’s chances to walk out of Lincoln Financial Field with a W this Sunday.
Washington vs Eagles Odds for Week 15
According to our friends at WynnBET, Washington opens as 4.5-point road favorites against Philadelphia. They have -110 odds to cover that line (bet $110 to win $100). If you’d rather bet Washington to in outright, you can get them at +170 on the money line, so bet $100 to win $170. The over/under for Sunday is set at 43.5 points, with both sides checking in at -110 odds.
Washington vs Eagles Prediction for Week 15
It’s tough to make a prediction without knowing the status’ of Taylor Heinicke, Terry McLaurin, JD McKissic and Charles Leno, but we’ll try our best.
In a vacuum, this game will be won in the trenches After all, the Eagles’ offense is heavily dependent on its rushing attack, which is first in the NFL at 160 yards per game. Conversely, Washington is stout against the run and is fresh of bottling up Ezekiel Elliot for 45 yards this past Sunday.
For the season, they flaunt the fifth-best run D in the league.
This is obviously easier said than done, but if Washington can limit Philly’s time of possession and force Jalen Hurts to win the game through the air, that should bode extremely well for Ron Rivera’s group.
The start of the game will be key. If Antonio Gibson finds a rhythm, that’ll take the pressure off Taylor Heinicke and the entire offense will open up.
We like Washington to piggyback off the momentum they generated in the fourth quarter against Dallas and pick up a HUGE road win over the Eagles.
Washington 28, Eagles 21.
