The preseason betting surrounding the Washington Redskins (4-4) when quarterback Donovan McNabb and head coach Mike Shanahan came to town were optimistic. But after eight weeks of play McNabb is benched and the Redskins are in turmoil The Philadelphia Eagles (5-3) were given no chance to establishing winning football betting scores when they got rid of McNabb and made Kevin Kolb the starting quarterback. But when Kolb was injured early in the season, the Eagles realized that Michael Vick was their answer all along.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Monday, November 15th, 8:30 PM ET
  • Where: FedEx Field, Washington, DC
  • Pick: Philadelphia Eagles -3

What’s On The Line

The Washington Redskins seem to be cursed with indecision regardless of who is the head coach and who is the quarterback. Mike Shanahan is still wrestling with whether or not to start Rex Grossman over Donovan McNabb in this game. The stakes are high as the Redskins need to start winning to stay in the playoff hunt.

The Eagles are rolling right along with Michael Vick at quarterback and wide receiver DeSean Jackson back in the line up after recovering from his concussion. It will be interesting to see how the Washington defense handles Vick and Jackson.

Offensive Matchups: Eagles Redskins Betting

The Redskins have no idea who their quarterback is and they have no identity in their running game. Running back Clinton Portis is still only good for 8 or 9 games a season, and replacement Ryan Torain is still showing some rookie tendencies that cause fumbles and mistakes. Donovan McNabb has come back from a benching before, and if the Skins put him on the field Monday night it is the kind of situation McNabb is used to.

The Eagles have an extremely potent offense, and it is made more potent by the return of Jackson. Michael Vick is showing some maturity as he does not run nearly as much as he used to. But when Vick does decide to run, it is usually for big numbers. The other part of the Philadelphia running attack is running back LeSean McCoy who has already put up 572 yards and five touchdowns this season.

Defensive Matchups: Eagles Redskins Betting

The Eagles have a good but not great defense. Their secondary has lost a lot of quality players in the past couple of years and that has caused the Eagles pass defense to drop to being ranked 15th in the league. But the Eagles can still apply pressure when they need to and they are holding their opponents to an average of 104 yards per game on the ground. The defense is extremely good at setting up the offense, and that is how you create an effective team.

It can be argued that Mike Shanahan let the Albert Haynesworth situation get completely out of control earlier in the season and now his defense is suffering because of it. The Redskins have the 31st ranked defense in the league giving up an average of 393 yards per game. The worst part is that the Redskins are weakest against the pass with a ranking of 31 as well giving up an average of 281 yards per game. With Vick throwing to Jackson, Washington could be in trouble.

Notable Injuries: Eagles Redskins Betting

Outlook and Pick: Eagles Redskins Betting

When the preseason chaos was going on everyone thought that the Washington Redskins had made a ton of good moves and the Eagles had made a series of costly mistakes. That is why the game is played on the field and not in the newspapers. It turns out that Mike Shanahan has chaos of his own creation in Washington that is becoming a season-long distraction, and in Philadelphia everything seems to be under control.
