Eagles vs Lions Prediction and Promo for Week 1 (Eagles Soar in Statement Win)


The last time expectations were this high for a Philadelphia Eagles season, the Eagles were coming off a Super Bowl win. There’s a different dual-threat option leading the charge this time, and Jalen Hurts looks ready to bring Philadelphia back to the promised land.

With newly-acquired wide receiver AJ Brown joining a loaded offense alongside Hurts, DeVonta Smith, Dallas Goedert, Miles Sanders, and Kenneth Gainwell, these Eagles are poised to soar.

Philadelphia’s offense won’t be the only thing soaring, though, after you take advantage of this unbelievable new promo FanDuel has for Eagles fans.

If you need some help deciding how to bet on the Eagles season-opener against Detroit, here’s how I’m spending my $150:

Eagles vs Lions Prediction and Pick

Eagles -3.5 (-114) vs Lions

I’m not pandering when I say this, but the Eagles are my pick to win the NFC. I’ve been a Jalen Hurts fan so long that I’ve got his Oklahoma jersey up in my closet, and he led me to a fantasy football championship last year.

This offense is electric. With Hurts’ dual-threat ability keeping defenses on their toes, AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith might take the Waffle House nickname from Julio Jones: they’re always open.

That’s a guy ready to wreck the league this year. With perhaps the NFL’s best offensive line and an improved defense, I think the Eagles are set to dominate Detroit. The Lions are an improving club, sure, but the public love has gone a bit too far. Philly’s mauling defensive line will cause problems for Jared Goff all game, and the Lions don’t have the secondary to keep up with the gluttony of pass-catching options at Hurts’ disposal.

The Eagles closed last year by winning four straight regular season games and went 4-2-1 against the spread in their last seven as Hurts grew comfortable.

Expect a statement win as Hurts dazzles and AJ Brown shows why Philly acquired him.

Eagles vs Lions Over 48.5 (-110)

If you prefer a bet on the total, I like the over as well. It’s hit in five straight matchups between these teams, and I don’t see how Detroit slows down this Eagles offense.

Philadelphia should build an early lead, forcing the Lions to play quick and throw. They’ll either score, or the Eagles’ stout defensive line will cause turnovers and generate short field position for the offense. Remember the 44-6 shellacking Philly laid down on Detroit last year? Yeah, that’s the kind of game I’m talking about.

The over is 6-2 in the Eagles’ last eight games as a favorite and hit in four of Philadelphia’s final five regular season games last year. With the offensive firepower on this roster, you can bet those trends continue.

Even if I’m wrong though, we’re still getting that $150 in free bets regardless. Don’t miss out on your share of the winnings. Bet $5, Win $150. Sign up for FanDuel now!
