The Philadelphia Eagles host the New Orleans Saints in what should be a thrilling playoff matchup. Vegas thinks it will be a close one -- according to OddsShark, the Eagles are favored by just 2.5 or 3 points.
The Eagles clinched the NFC East in a dramatic 24-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys, completing a big turnaround in Chip Kelly's first year. One year after going 4-12, the Eagles are 10-6 and back in the postseason. Their success hasn't always favored bettors, though -- Philadelphia is just 8-7-1 against the spread.
The Saints also got back in the playoffs after a disappointing 2012. They finished 11-5 and got a Wild Card spot, thanks to a dramatically improved defense under Rob Ryan. The team has struggled on the road, however, making its path to the Super Bowl more challenging than for most teams. New Orleans is also 8-7-1 against the spread this year.
