The 2013 NFL schedule's first NFL picks contest of a Monday Night football double-header features the Philadelphia Eagles vs Washington Redskins at FedEx Filed, kickoff is set for 6:55PM and will be televised by ESPN.
The Philadelphia Eagles are heading into the 2013 NFL schedule with the debut of headcoach Chip Kelly and a 2-2 preseason record which ended with a 27-20 loss to the New York Jets. Vegas lines makers had the Eagles listed as the betting favorite in that matchup, but the Eagles failed to cover the spread. Eagles fans can remain hopeful though, since Philadelphia holds a 6-4 record when playing in September. On the other hand, Vegas odds makers are not so optimistic about the Eagles this season, installing the Eagles among the dogs to win the Superbowl with 50/1 odds.
The Washington Redskins and G3 return to the gridiron against the Eagles tonight coming off a flawless 4-0 preseason schedule without Robert Griffin III under center. It was not announced until Monday that headcoach Mike Shanahan would give G3 the starting quarterback spot in their Monday Night Football opener against the Eagles.
The Eagles vs Washington Vegas lines list the Eagles as a +3½(-115) point underdog versus the Washington Redskins who are the point spreads favorite at -3½(-105). The OVER/UNDER odds for this contest are listed at 51( ov-110).
