NFL Betting Odds - Eagles Moving on Without Long-Time Starting Quarterback: The NFL betting public will be in for change because for the first time in over a decade the Philadelphia Eagles will have a new starting quarterback to kick off the NFL betting season and, with that change, some uncertainty as to how much impact the team will have in the NFL playoff picture. Donovan McNabb has moved down I-95 to Washington, and the Eagles will start their 2010 season with new starting quarterback Kevin Kolb. The 2010 NFL betting odds schedule will mark Kolb’s first season as a starting quarterback and the Vegas odds, 14-1 to represent the NFC in the 2011 Super Bowl, show a shaky confidence in a team going in a different direction.
Kolb put-up big numbers when starting for McNabb early in 2009 but has yet to feel the pressure of taking the offense’s reigns full-time. He’ll have some help with his on-the-job training. Dynamic receiver DeSean Jackson is back as is emerging receiver Jeremy Maclin and tight end Brent Celek. Gone also is Brian Westbrook and the feature back role will go to second-year pro LeSean McCoy. McCoy has the pedigree and skill to be a #1 back, and he and Kolb will grow together.
The Eagles defense was a top ten team against the run but slipped some in pass defense. For the 2010 NFL betting odds season, they’ll have a young, mostly no-name defense, led by safety Quinten Mikell and all-star cornerback Asante Samuel. Defense end Trent Cole led the defense in sacks a year ago, and has the upside to get better. He’ll have some help with off-season acquisitions LBs Alex Hall and Ernie Sims, and first round draft pick DE Brandon Graham.
The Eagles will go as far as Kolb and McCoy will take them in this years 2010 NFL betting season and, if either or both falter, the Eagles could find themselves looking-up at the pack in 2010.
