Vegas Installs Eagles as 2.5 Point Favorites

Well, Vegas took their sweet ass time opening up the betting lines to the general public, but with just a bit more than 48 hours to go prior to Thursday night’s game between the Seahawks and Eagles we finally have a line.

Drum roll…

The Eagles have been installed as 2.5 point favorites.

It’s an interesting line, and it’s about what I expected.

This much we know: the Eagles aren’t a good football team. They’re a supposedly talented bunch, but that has simply not translated into wins this season. Despite their well-documented troubles, the public wants to bet on the Eagles, which explains how they’re favored in one of the toughest venues in the NFL despite a short week and a cross country flight.

We’ll check back tomorrow and break this game down for all of you degenerate gamblers out there.
