Most of the bigger sportsbooks have released their win total projections for the 2014 NFL regular season as well as the moneyline odds for the "over/under" on a team's specific number. The bad news for Eagles' fans is that Oddsmakers are calling for a slight step backwards with a projected total of nine wins after the team won the NFC East Division title last year with a record of 10-6. The moneyline favors the "under" on nine wins at -130, while the moneyline on the "over" is an even-money 100 on Bovada's current NFL team props betting board.
The good news is that the Eagles still have the highest projected win total in the NFC East. The New York Giants' odds are set at -115 for both the under and over on eight wins. Dallas is also projected to win eight games, but the odds on the under are set at -150 and the odds on the over are +120. Washington is projected to win 7.5 games with a -130 moneyline on the under and an even 100 line on the over.
