Eagles Host Seahawks in Monday Night Football
Incredibly enough the Philadelphia Eagles lead the NFC East with a record of 3-6-1. Which illustrates as to why the division should be called the NFC “Least.” Somebody has to win the division and many analysts believe that Philadelphia is the best of four bad NFL betting options. Monday night the Eagles host the Seattle Seahawks in a matchup of opposites. To illuminate the Seahawks are all offense and no defense. While the Eagles have a solid defense but no offense. Last January the Seahawks scored a 17-9 playoff win at Philadelphia. Things have never been the same for either club since that day.

Seattle Sparked by Superman Wilson to NFC West Lead
A first-place tie in the NFC West with the Rams is Seattle’s current position entering this week’s game at Philadelphia. Last Thursday night the Seahawks beat Arizona 28-21 as 3-point home chalks with under the total of 56.5 paying as well. Seattle now stands at 7-3 straight up, 6-4 against the spread, with 6-4 over the total. Seattle ranks 4th in the NFL for offense and 2nd for scoring.
