Huge game in the NFC East as the Washington Football Team can clinch the division with a win, but an Eagles win at home would hand the division to the New York Giants.
Washington released former first round pick, Dwayne Haskins earlier this week in a surprise move, and will be hoping Alex Smith is healthy enough to start and lead this offense. The Washington Defense has been the star unit for them with rookie Chase Young showing why he was picked second overall in the 2020 draft.
The Eagles could’ve been playing for the division themselves had they not taken a beating at the hands of the Cowboys last week. Jalen Hurts has opened up the Eagles offense since taking over from Carson Wentz.
I’m taking Washington here in a close one, but I don’t trust them so I’m definitely not making that a best bet! Instead I’m going with the Eagles rookie passer Jalen Hurts to have over 30.5 passing attempts, something he’s done in his last two stats and he missed by 1 in the game before that.
PREDICTION: WASHINGTON 20 – 17 EAGLES
BEST BET: Jalen Hurts OVER 30.5 passing attempts – EVENS with SkyBet. 0.5 point bet.
