Last week a went out on the limb that the Eagles would cover as three-point road favorites against Washington. I had that game in hand right down to the final minutes of the fourth quarter until the Redskins ripped all out hearts out with that last second score. This was an extremely damaging loss for Philadelphia on a number of levels and a major step backwards after taking a small step forward with the Week 3 win against the New York Jets.
This Sunday, the Birds play host to 1-3 New Orleans as 5.5-point favorites with most of the offshore sportsbooks. Given what I have seen from Chip Kelly's new look lineup, I am not sure this team can beat anyone by more than a field goal right now. They have continually found ways to shoot themselves in the foot and with a really shaky situation with their current field goal kicker there is a good chance they actually lose this game straight-up. I am not officially off of Philly's bandwagon, but I am definitely dragging one foot on the ground.
The following link is to this week's two-team parlay for Every1Bets and I will tell you right now that I am going against the Eagles this time around.
