In what probably amounts to an elimination game as far as making the playoffs are concerned, the Eagles host Washington for an NFC East rivalry bout Sunday afternoon in Philly. Both these teams are 6-7 on the season, and eight losses might be too many. So getting to .500 would be huge for either team.

The Eagles opened as short home favorites for this game, but early betting action pushed that spread two points. How are we playing this one with our free NFL betting pick?

NFL Betting Lines

Washington Betting Preview

The Football Team just suffered its first defeat since October, a 27-20 decision at home to Dallas last Sunday. Washington fell behind to the Cowboys 24-0 at the half, pulled to within one score with four minutes left, and got the ball back but fumbled it away to lose both SU and ATS as a six-point home dog.

The WFT got out-gained by Dallas 323-224, out-rushed 122-100, lost time of possession by a 34:26 split, and turned the ball over four times, which basically cost them 17 points.

Prior to last week, though, Washington had out-gained five of its previous six opponents and out-rushed each of its last six foes.

At 6-7 overall, the WFT won’t catch the Cowboys in the NFC East, but they do own the No. 7 spot in the NFC playoff standings, a tie-breaker ahead of four other teams.

Philadelphia Betting Preview

The Eagles, meanwhile, are 3-1, both SU and ATS their last four times out after winning at the Jets two weeks ago 33-18. Philadelphia then enjoyed last week off.

The Eagles spotted New York the first six points of the game last time out and trailed 18-14 in the second quarter. But Philly then scored the last 19 points of the game for the victory and the money as a five-point favorite.

The Eagles, quarterbacked by back-up Gardner Minshew, out-gained the Jets 418-281, out-rushed New York 185-70, and won time of possession by a 36:24 split.

So Philadelphia has out-gained each of its last four opponents and out-rushed each of its last seven foes. It’s also scored at least 30 points three times in its last four games.

At 6-7 overall, the Eagles won’t catch Dallas in the divisional race, but they only trail Washington by a tie-breaker in the battle for that No. 7 spot in the NFC.

Both starting quarterbacks in this match-up are listed on this week’s injury reports; we expect Heinicke to start for Washington, Hurts for Philadelphia. And we’ll give the former the edge in that QB comparison. Also, the Eagles bounced back last time out from a disappointing loss in their previous game. Now, it’s Washington’s turn to rebound, following its disappointing defeat last week. We like the Football Team here for the outright win on the Moneyline. Note: Stop wasting your hard earned money!
