Eagles Aren’t Flying High With Tipsters To Defend Superbowl

The American Football NFL season has officially kicked off with hopeful teams making their first steps on the road to the Superbowl.

This season sees 32 teams competing for the coveted trophy.

Along the way will be many twists and turns as players are injured, tensions mount and unforeseen controversy rears up.

This is the 99thNFL season and after 256 games, experts have made their predictions for the play-off and final.

Defending champions are the Philadelphia Eagles who face a disruptive early season with one game on the road in London – but the boost is quarterback Carson Wentz is rostered for a return after tearing ligaments in December.

Seven new quarterbacks

As a point of interest, seven new quarterbacks stepped on to the pitch for match week one.

Sam Darnold was impressive on his debut for the New York Jets. He is one of those players that stands in a bubble while the action slows down around him, giving him a chance to pick the best pass.

It’s early days for him yet, but that’s really a sign of potential to become a real great.

Jets ran out 48-17 winners against Detroit Lions who had a shocker.

Later, the Jets defence revealed they knew what the Lions plays would be, which made them easier to defend.

The man who must live up to his $84 million contract is Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings. The good news is Cousins looked value for money for the three-year deal in his first game.

His ability was never doubted, the questions was whether he would fit the Vikings offense.

Odds for the title

Early hopes suggest Minnesota look set for another run of success that will end close if not at the Superbowl as they took down the San Francisco 49ers 24-16 in week one.

The latest Superbowl odds put last season’s defeated finalist New England Patriots as 6-1 favourites for the 2018-19 title. Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys come in next at 10-1, while Eagles are way out at 60-1 to repeat their win at the last Superbowl.

The Eagles have the worst pre-season odds for defending champions since Baltimore Ravens in 2013 and have 10 teams ahead of them on current betting.
