Despite suffering their first loss of the season, the Philadelphia Eagles are still favored to win not only their division, where they’re -300 to win the NFC East, but also the NFC, where their odds at DraftKings are +250.

Eagles Tight End Dallas Goedert Injured

However, in Monday night’s loss, the Eagles lost tight end Dallas Goedert to a shoulder injury.  Goedert is expected to miss “extended time,” according to nfl.com.  He is second on the team in yards receiving and third in catches.  

Christian McCaffrey May Be The Difference

But its not Goedert’s injury that has the hosts of VSiN’s Big Bets, Amal Shah and Dave Ross predicting the Eagles will not win the NFC.  Rather, its the improving health of the San Francisco 49ers and their addition of running back Christian McCaffrey.

In three games with the Niners, McCaffrey is averaging 56 yards rushing, he’s caught 14 passes, scored 2 touchdowns rushing and thrown for another.

 

At DraftKings, the 49ers are second to the Eagles on the odds board at +350 to win the NFC.  How these two teams fare the rest of the way, promises to be interesting.
