Eagles Redskins Betting Tips – Eagles Must Face Redskins Without Michael Vick

Posted by Tony Bryant on 11/13/2012 5:32:02 PM

It has now been confirmed that the Philadelphia Eagles will not play the Washington Redskins with Michael Vick at quarterback. Nick Foles will have to be the man for Philadelphia.

Why Philadelphia Will Win

When football betting gurus go over the week of games in the NFL, they study the demeanors of teams. Washington's demeanor is in the dumpster right now. The will and the starch have been sapped from the Redskins in recent weeks. This team has hit rock-bottom. It lost at home to the Carolina Panthers, a team with only two wins on the season and a team that subsequently got rocked at home, 36-14, by the Denver Broncos this past Sunday. Losing at home to Carolina represented a stomach punch for the Redskins and their fans. Dropping a sixth game this early in the 2012 season has created the overwhelming and not-misguided sense that the Redskins have virtually no shot at the playoffs this season.

In many ways, Washington has already reached the point where it's merely playing out the string. It is such a cancerous and sickening feeling in professional sports, but the Redskins have arrived at that point where they are just going through the motions without much of a soul or spirit. This team has been shaken by injuries to multiple defensive starters, but it has been broken by its inability to respond effectively to those setbacks. Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles gained crucial needed experience last week in the Eagles' loss to Dallas. If he does indeed replace Michael Vick at quarterback, he will be ready to play and win this game against an inferior opponent that has lost its heart.

Why Washington Will Win

Even if you don't care for online casino games, you have to admit that watching the Philadelphia Eagles' luck has certainly run out. Even the most seasoned employees and oddsmakers in the gambling business have to be amazed at what the Philadelphia Eagles have done in recent weeks. The Eagles started the season by winning three games in a four-game stretch by a combined total of four points, leading some people to think that this was going to be their year. However, just as soon as things looked bright, the Eagles have imploded in a rather spectacular fashion. This team hasn't just looked mediocre, but downright lousy, in a five-game losing streak that has turned a season upside down and inside out.

Coach Andy Reid is legitimately on the hot seat, and a fan base is up in arms. This is a crisis that the Eagles are facing, and with quarterback Michael Vick having been knocked out of last week's game against the Dallas Cowboys, he won't play against Washington. Nick Foles does not have a strong arm. He cannot stretch a defense the way Vick can. Washington, for all its problems, might have a favorable matchup here.

Who Will Win

Nick Foles won't have much of a chance here. The Eagles will not be able to outscore Robert Griffin III with Foles at quarterback. It's just that simple. Go with Washington.
