Wow! How long has it been since you’ve seen a Philadelphia Eagles preseason game? Heck, how long has it been since you’ve seen an NFL game in which there were fans in the stands? Both of those roads intersect on Thursday, August 12th when Philly takes on a team that was once their ally a long, long time ago (go do some research on the Steagles when you get a chance).
The Pittsburgh Steelers enter the 2021 preseason looking for a positive start following an NFL campaign that began with 11 straight wins and ended with the Black and Gold losing four of their final five regular-season games and collapsing in the playoffs via an 11-point loss to the hated Cleveland Browns. There isn’t an Eagles fan on the planet that doesn’t know about Philly’s 4-11-1 run.
These two proud products of the state of Pennsylvania meet in Week 1 of the preseason on Thursday, August 12th at 7:30 pm EDT. Let’s get into some specifics.
Eagles vs. Steelers odds for Preseason Week 1:
According to WynnBET, the Philadelphia Eagles are the favorites by two points. The money line is -130. The Steelers are -108 against the spread with a money line of +104. In other words, you’d need to bet $130 on the Eagles to win an additional $100. That would make your total payout $230.
The Steelers are underdogs at +104. That means, if you bet $100 on them, you can win an additional $104. That leaves the betting party with a $204 payout.
