No one expected the Philadelphia Eagles to compete for a championship last season. And yet, like a March Madness Cinderella story, these injury-ridden underdogs rose from the ashes, put on their masks, hit the New England Patriots with a little “Philly Special,” and defied the odds on their way to giving the City of Brotherly Love its first Super Bowl title.

But after a truly magical run last year, you better believe 2018 is going to look and feel a whole lot different.

Unlike last season, the Eagles officially have a target on their backs. That’s what happens when you’re on top. Yet, something tells us Philadelphia is excited and ready to face the challenge that comes with being the team to beat.

But before you start betting all your paychecks on another Eagles Super Bowl run, here’s a look at the prop bets (and odds) available for Philadelphia in 2018, as well as our predictions for how these wagers will turn out.

Regular Season Wins (10.5 wins)

  • Over: -105
  • Under: -125

After going 13-3 in last year’s regular season, Vegas has every reason to believe in the Eagles in 2018. And yet, the odds aren’t overwhelming in a repeat performance in 2018. This one is definitely going to be close.

After looking at the schedule, here’s how we see all 16 of Philadelphia’s games playing out this fall.

  • Atlanta Falcons – Loss
  • @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Win
  •  Indianapolis Colts – Win
  • @ Tennessee Titans – Win
  • Minnesota Vikings – Win
  • @ New York Giants – Loss
  • Carolina Panthers – Win
  • Jacksonville Jaguars – Loss
  • Dallas Cowboys – Win
  • @ New Orleans Saints – Loss
  • New York Giants – Win
  • Washington Redskins – Win
  • @ Dallas Cowboys – Win
  • @ Los Angeles Rams – Win
  • Houston Texans – Win
  • @ Washington Redskins – Loss

Things could get interesting if Carson Wentz starts the season on the bench. Still, the way we see it, at least as of right now, the Eagles will go 11-5 in the 2018 season.

Prediction: Over 10.5 wins.

Eagles to win NFC East (-150)

The NFC East is one of the tougher divisions in football to pick. The Redskins have the talents to dominate in the trenches on both sides of the ball; the Cowboys, if ‘Zeke Elliott returns to form and Dak Prescott makes the necessary strides, could make waves; and the Giants are definitely better than their 3-13 mark from the year before. This is definitely a toss-up for us. However, it’s tough to bet against the champs.

Prediction: Very real possibility. Make this bet.

Eagles to win NFC (+450)

It’s amazing how stacked the NFC is at this point. Sure, the Eagles are the reigning champs, but they’ve got plenty of teams nipping at their heels. The Vikings are no joke — especially on defense — and their offense should be even better with Kirk Cousins at the helm. The Saints were one “Minnesota Miracle” away from heading to Philadelphia for the NFC title game last year, and Sean McVay has the Rams — who are extremely top heavy — looking like an offensive juggernaut.

Any of these teams have the talent to represent the NFC in the big game. Still, if the Birds can manage to avoid the injury bug in 2018, we believe they’ll be playing in Atlanta on Super Bowl Sunday.

Prediction: Very real possibility. Make this bet.

Eagles to win Super Bowl 53 (+850)

Although we believe the Eagles are heading back to the Super Bowl in 2018, we’re not 100% certain they’ll hoist the Lombardi Trophy again. And yet, we definitely don’t hate these odds.

Prediction: It’s possible but not likely. Teams rarely go back to back. Exercise caution here.

Eagles to Make/Miss the playoffs

  • Make: -270
  • Miss: +210

It’s hard to imagine a scenario where the Birds miss the playoffs. They are among the deepest and most talented teams in football. But at -270, you better be 100% certain the defending champs aren’t going to drop off one year after reaching the promised land.

Prediction: We believe they will make the postseason, but we’re not really fans of throwing down $270 just to win $100.

Carson Wentz to win NFL MVP (+900)

Wentz was on his way to winning the MVP before he tore his ACL against the Rams in Week 14. If the young quarterback wasn’t coming off a serious injury, we’d feel more comfortable backing him in this category. This is probably not his year.

Prediction: It’s possible but we’d steer clear.

Carson Wentz to lead the NFL in passing yards (+2500)

Wentz is one of the best young quarterbacks in the National Football League, but again, he’s coming back from a major knee injury. He’s going to air the ball out, and he’s going to get his yards. However, you’re probably better off sticking with the favorites, Drew Brees and Tom Brady (both +450).

Prediction: It’s possible but we’d steer clear.

Dallas Goedert to win Offensive Rookie of the Year (+4000)

Dallas Goedert is going to be a stud, and he’s going to thrive in Doug Pederson’s offense. We can’t wait to see the Birds work Goedert into two tight end sets with Pro Bowler Zach Ertz. That being said, the safest bet is New York’s Saquon Barkley, and it’s not even close.

Prediction: Not going to happen.

Fletcher Cox to win Defensive Player of the Year (+3300)

The competition for this award is going to be stiff. Fletcher Cox, however, is hands-down one of the best defensive players in the game. He might not always get the love he deserves, but if the Birds make another run in 2018, Cox will definitely be in the conversion for Defensive Player of the Year.

Prediction: Probably won’t happen, but it can’t hurt to make this bet

Doug Pederson to be the first coach fired in 2018 (+20000)

Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves.

Prediction: Are you really entertaining this?
