The 2021 NFL offseason is far from over, which is why we’re dubbing the following overview as an early look at the Philadelphia EaglesSuper Bowl odds and win total. That being said, it’s hard to imagine how the team’s current outlook changes dramatically as September draws closer. The NFL Draft could provide more reason for excitement, no doubt, but rookie impact is far from guaranteed.

2022 Super Bowl odds

Per DraftKings:

Kansas City Chiefs +500
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +750
Green Bay Packers +1100
Baltimore Ravens +1300
Buffalo Bills +1400
Los Angeles Rams +1400
San Francisco 49ers +1400
Cleveland Browns +2200
Indianapolis Colts +2500
Dallas Cowboys +2800
Miami Dolphins +2800
New England Patriots +2800
New Orleans Saints +2800
Seattle Seahawks +2800
Los Angeles Chargers +3300
Pittsburgh Steelers +3300
Tennessee Titans +3300
Arizona Cardinals +4000
Carolina Panthers +5000
Chicago Bears +5000
Minnesota Vikings +5000
Washington Football Team +5000
Denver Broncos +6000
Las Vegas Raiders +6000
Atlanta Falcons +6600
New York Giants +6600
Jacksonville Jaguars +7000
Philadelphia Eagles +7000
Cincinnati Bengals +8000
New York Jets +8000
Detroit Lions +15000
Houston Texans +15000

Yikes. The Eagles are tied with the Jags, who were the NFL’s worst team last year. Only four teams have longer odds than Philly does.

An optimist could point out that the Eagles were also considerable preseason Super Bowl underdogs when they won their first Vince Lombardi Trophy! They were actually tied for the second-longest ever at +6000.

Of course, there’s much more reason to be skeptical about the 2021 Eagles. No definitive answer at quarterback, unproven coaching staff, lacking talent, etc. There’s a real chance Philly could be in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick this year. Not saying they’re the favorites for that but they’re closer to that end of the spectrum than winning another Super Bowl.

2021 NFL win totals

On that note, the Eagles are tied for the third-lowest win total at 6.5. They’re keeping company with the Jaguars (again), Jets, and Bengals. Only the Lions (5) and Texans (4.5) have lower expectations.

Interestingly enough, these odds have the over on the Eagles’ win total at -110. That’s to say you’d have to bet $110 to win $100. The under, meanwhile, is +123, meaning you can bet $100 to win $123.

There’s a case to be made that the Eagles will be better than many expect this season. Maybe Hurts takes a big step in Year 2, the new coaching staff turns out to be a major upgrade, Howie Roseman nails the draft, the team finally gets some good injury luck ... and so on. Even if just some of those things happen, they could feasibly get above 6.5 in a suspect NFC East.

To no surprise, I feel more confident in betting the under at this stage. The Eagles had four wins last year and they came over Nick Mullens, Taysom Hill, Daniel Jones, and Ben DiNucci. They were a pretty bad team! And I fail to see how they’ll suddenly be much better.

What say you? You feeling confident enough to bet on the Birds?
