Well, someone is betting big that the Eagles win the Super Bowl this year

Sure, why not?

The Eagles have a predominantly new, and young, coaching staff, a second-year quarterback with only four NFL starts, a slew of one- and two-year skill players, and more inexperienced guys than veterans, and yet someone is still putting money on the line that this year’s Philadelphia squad wins their second-ever Super Bowl.

It’s a long shot, sure, but it will also be quite the payout should this energetic group wind up proving everyone wrong. If you’re in the “it could happen” club, you’ll probably have better odds now than once the roster is built and the season starts if you’re looking to put some money on the underdog.

Doug Pederson did lead the team to a Super Bowl win in just his second-ever year as head coach, so it’s not impossible to think Nick Sirianni could follow a similar blueprint. But, still, this is Year 1 for Sirianni, and the roster had a whole lot more stability when Pederson took the reigns in 2016.

But, as they say, “Any given Sunday”... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
