Washington Commanders (Redskins) vs Eagles Predictions

It’s still too early to talk about the Philadelphia Eagles chasing down the 1972 Dolphins as the only team in NFL history to register a perfect season. And the likelihood of that happening is just too slim with more games on the slate and parity throughout the league. It is a good storyline for Monday Night Football, though, when the Eagles host the Washington Commanders in a key NFC East contest. Despite their perfect 8-0 record the Eagles are just two games up on the Giants and Cowboys in the division meaning anything can happen over the last few months.

The Week 10 Monday Night Football contest between the Washington Commanders and Philadelphia Eagles will take place at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA at 8:15 p.m. ET on November 14, 2022 and will be televised on ESPN.

Odds Analysis

The Eagles already have a payout win over the team formerly known as the Redskins covering the 6-point line in their 24-8 win in Week 3. It was Philly’s third straight win in the series and their ninth in the last 11 meetings going 7-3-1 ATS. The Eagles moved to -11 on the NFL betting line and if it holds it’ll be the third straight game laying double figures. They are 1-1 ATS in the previous two. They failed to cover the 14-point line in last week’s 29-17 win at Houston. The Commanders got back to .500 winning three in a row with payouts in each. The streak ended last week with a pushed line in a 20-17 home loss to the Vikings. The club is offensively challenged scoring more than 17 points once in the previous seven games with the UNDER 6-1.

Washington Commanders

It’s obvious at this point the Commanders need their defense to play at a high level in order to win games. And the group did that during a recent three-game winning streak holding Chicago, Green Bay and Indianapolis to a combined average of 14.7 points while going 3-0 ATS. Granted those aren’t the most potent offensive clubs in the NFL, but Washington did what it had to. At some point the offense has to pick things up and it hasn’t mattered who was playing quarterback. The team averaged 11.8 points in four games before Carson Wentz was shelved and they averaged 19 points in the last three with Taylor Heinicke at the helm.

Wentz is probably excited to sit this one out after he was tormented by the Eagles in the Week 3 loss. Wentz threw for 211 yards on 43 attempts and was sacked nine times. The Commanders managed only 240 total yards and a paltry 3.2 yards per play. Wentz was also responsible for the only turnover in that game, something that’s plagued the Commanders. The QBs have combined to throw nine interceptions, the second-highest total in the NFL while completing just 62.3 percent of their throws, one of the lowest numbers. With a ground game that averages 108 yards it’s easy to see why the team has struggled.

Philadelphia Eagles

It doesn’t matter who you play, winning eight games without a setback is impressive. Through the first half of the NFL season the Eagles have shown tremendous balance ranking among the top-5 in scoring and total yards on both sides of the football. They won’t go undefeated, but this club has proven to be a legitimate Super Bowl contender climbing to the top of the futures board at many sportsbooks. Part of that can be directly attributed to the development of Jalen Hurts. Hurts riddled the Washington secondary in the first meeting going 22 of 35 for 340 yards and three touchdowns. For the season he’s passed for 2,042 yards with 12 scores and only two picks joining the MVP discussion.

Holding onto the football and creating turnovers are recipes for success in the NFL. And that’s another reason why the Eagles are where they are. With a league-best five interceptions from Chauncey Gardner-Johnson the Eagles lead the NFL with 12 picks and 18 takeaways. Meanwhile they have only three turnovers, twice as few as the next closest team, giving them a whopping plus-15 turnover differential. The aggressive defense has also produced the sixth-highest sack total while holding opponents to an average of 16.9 points.

Commanders vs Eagles Prediction

I don’t think this is the game that ends Philly’s perfect start, though stranger things have happened. The Eagles covered all four games at home winning by an average of 14 points. And they displayed the difference between the teams in Week 3. A fast start by the Eagles puts Washington on its heels since they don’t have the firepower to catch up and turnovers lead to another home payout.

Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles -11 and OVER 43.5
