Betting on Chip Kelly's Future in Philadelphia

Given the Eagles' 4-7 record heading into Sunday's road game against New England as double-digit underdogs, there has been widespread speculation as to head coach Chip Kelly's future with the team. Some reports have him heading back to the college ranks in light of his very successful stint at Oregon before taking the job in Philly. Some football experts predict that team owner Jeff Lurie will cut his losses and fire Kelly after this extremely disappointing season comes to an end. There has even been speculation that Kelly will be traded to Tennessee so he can finally be reunited with his prized quarterback Marcus Mariota during his tenure with the Ducks.

One of the best things about this kind of NFL drama is that you will usually find a sportsbook that will post betting odds on what the ultimate outcome will be. That is the case this week with Bovada's special NFL props concerning Kelly's future as a head coach. Along with the race for league MVP and Jeff Fisher's future in St. Louis as that team's head coach, I have weighed-in on my prediction for what the Wizard of Broad Street will be doing when Week 1 of the 2016 NFL regular season rolls around.

The following is a link to my weekly NFL prop bet picks for Doc's Sports covering Chip Kelly's future in Philadelphia.

  1. I know I am ahead of you. The Eagle's team players decided to show their strength to defeat New England. I still think the head coach has to go. I hope "Shady" gets hammered.

  2. Kelly will most likely be back next season, but if he is going to have any shot at a long tenure in Philadelphia he is going to have to get a quarterback that can run his offensive scheme. From what I have seen Bradford is clearly not the answer.
