The Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t a real contender, but they needed the Philadelphia Eagles to remind them of that in Week 3 on Monday Night Football.
The 2-1 Washington Commanders learned the same thing about themselves on Sunday when they were dismantled by the Buffalo Bills 37-3. BetSided NFL betting expert Iain MacMillan thinks the Eagles will do the same to Washington.
In his weekly, “Road to 272” MacMillan picks every game of the NFL slate and this week he likes the Eagles to cover as big favorites against the Commanders and remain undefeated.

Commanders vs. Eagles odds, spread and total
Betting expert for Eagles in Week 4
NFL betting expert Iain MacMillan viewed the Commanders 2-0 start as fraudulent and he was proven right last week. Things aren’t going to get any easier against the Eagles, a team that can actually run the ball well.
“Things aren't going to get any easier for them in Week 4 when they take on the defending NFC champions," he wrote. "If I were a Commanders fan, I'd be concerned about their run defense. They have allowed 4.8 yards per rush this season, and now they face arguably the best rushing offense in the league in the Eagles.”
The Eagles have relied on D’Andre Swift to dominate on the ground while their passing game has been adjusting to a new play-caller and that’s been good enough to stay undefeated. However, they still have another level of dominance to reach.
“I still don't think we've seen the best of the Eagles yet this season, so it's scary that they're still 3-0 despite not playing their best football," MacMillan wrote. "If they bring their 'A' game against Washington, they're going to run all over them and Sam Howell will be in for a long game.”
Take the Eagles to cover this week against their division rival.
