The over/under for Eagles wins is 7.5.

7 or less and you lose, 8 or more and you win.

However, the under is the more popular play, so you actually win $6 for every $5 you bet.

So, how many would bet $100 on over 7.5 wins for the Eagles to win $120.

I am leaning that way but have till tomorrow to decide.

Would you? And do you see it as a no brainer, slightly lean that way or would you stay away?

Assume the money bet is significant to you. So if you need to make it $50 to win $60 or $1000 to win $1200, change the figures to make it doable and significant to your situation.

I wouldn't bet on it either way. I predicted 9-7, but a 6-10 finish wouldn't be shocking.

Under. Seems clear to me.

Nor would a 5-11 finish

I'm at -140 on the under and +110 on the over... so the line is very close to dropping to 7 games rather than 7.5. I would bet the under but I just don't like my cash flow being tied up that long on one bet.

I'd take it. But not with significant money. I'd take it for $1,000 or so just for fun. wink.gif

After further review, I am going to stay away. Reason being, I can see Vick playing well. But I can't see him being healthy for the entire year. What I thought was a strength, our backup QB, I no longer think that way after watching Foles struggle in preseason. So before I thought Foles could go in and keep us close to not missing a beat, I don't see it now. If Vick misses the customary 2-3 games this year, I think that hurts us more than previously thought.

I'll still keep my 9-7 prediction, but not with enough conviction to put my beer money on the line!!

Good luck to any who bet the over. I'm with you in spirit if not in dollars!!
