The Philadelphia Eagles are going to need a win on Sunday over the Washington Redskins to save their season, and those who bet money on these things like them to do so.
At 1-4, things have not started smoothly for the self-anointed 'Dream Team' known as the Philadelphia Eagles. Michael Vick has picked up a couple of injuries, the Eagles' defense hasn't been anything close to as good as advertised, and they've been unable to close out close games. Meanwhile, a Washington Redskins team that has less talent according to just about everyone is 3-1 and coming off of a bye week. Think you can predict this one?
Well, if Vegas can't, then you're just getting lucky if you hit the nail on the head this one. The line opened with the Redskins as three-point favorites and it's moved all over the place. While the line everywhere has moved in favor of Philly, they're anywhere from even money to two-point favorites, depending on who you ask. Washington is healthy and at home, but Philly will be desperate to save their season with a win. If the 'Skins win on Sunday, it's lights out on the Dream Team's season.
