You’re gonna miss it.
The Philadelphia Eagles have a bye this week.
NFL Week 14 seems a little sad. Sunday Funday suddenly lacks a little excitement. In fact, some of the disappointment may even drag into Saturday, with the weekend feeling just a little bit empty.
But we’re here to help.
Eagles Bye Week Betting Guide
There are plenty of other games to wager on this weekend. And some interesting wagers from the top sports betting apps in PA can add a whole lot of fun.
Here are a few things to consider as you prepare for a weekend without the Eagles.
You can start the wagering Saturday with a bet on the annual meeting of our nation’s service academies. Army and Navy have played this game in Philadelphia 89 times, but this year the game will once again be played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. (Last year, Army hosted the contest at its home stadium).
DraftKings Sportsbook has the Black Knights as 7-point favorites in this year’s game, which will be broadcast at 3 p.m. on CBS. The game’s moneyline prices are as follows:
The over/under for the matchup is set at 34.5. You can also wager on quarters, halves or team totals as well.
Sixers vs. Steph Curry Record
The Philadelphia 76ers face the Golden State Warriors in a nationally broadcast game on Saturday night at 8:30 pm. But the most interesting storyline won’t be the game’s final score.
Warriors guard Steph Curry enters the contest just 9 three-pointers away from tying Ray Allen for the NBA career record. His brother Seth plays for Philadelphia. And his parents are expected to attend. There’s no doubt that Curry would love to tie – or even break – the record with all of them watching.
Game lines for the Saturday game should be posted on Friday.
Root against all the NFC Teams around the Eagles
Heading into the weekend, the Philadelphia Eagles are “On the Bubble” of the NFC’s Playoff Picture. The Eagles are currently in eighth place in the conference and third place in the NFC East.
Here are some betting lines for a few matchups that could improve Philadelphia’s position:
Cowboys (8-4, 1st in NFC East) vs. Washington (6-6, 2nd in NFC East); 1 p.m. on FOX
A Washington win tightens the race in the NFC East. A Dallas win gives Washington the same record as Philadelphia. Either scenario helps the Eagles, so perhaps it makes sense to place a wager simply for a rooting interest.
New Orleans Saints (5-7, No. 12 in the NFC Playoff Picture) at New York Jets; 1 p.m on CBS
Minnesota tied the Eagles 6-7 record with a 36-28 win over Pittsburgh last night on Thursday Night Football.
The 5-7 Panthers (NFC No. 10) and 5-7 Falcons (NFC No. 11) play each other on Sunday, which will keep one team from reaching Philadelphia’s six-win mark. But the 5-7 Saints could also tie the Eagles win total with a win over the New York Jets on Sunday. So it’s an easy one for Philly fans. J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets!
San Francisco (6-6, No. 7 in the NFC Playoff Picture) vs. Cincinnati; 4:25 p.m. on CBS
The 49ers currently own the final playoff spot in the NFC. But a loss in Cincinnati leaves them tied with Philadelphia with four games to go. So this is another easy one for Eagles fans. Root, root, root for the Bengals.
Philadelphia returns to the field next Sunday with a home matchup at 1 p.m. against the Washington Football Team. But in the meantime, check out the best NFL betting app odds in Pennsylvania to keep you in the game.
You might miss the Eagles this weekend.
But don’t miss out on the fun.
