Philadelphia Eagles New NFC Favorites 2022-23

Following a statement win against the Washington Commanders in Week 3, the Philadelphia Eagles are the new favorites to win the NFC Championship in 2023.


DeVonta Smith caught eight passes from Jalen Hurts for a career-high 169 yards and a touchdown, leading the Eagles to a lopsided 24-8 victory.

The 2020 Heisman Trophy winner out of Alabama amassed 156 yards prior to halftime, the most by an Eagles player in a half since Kevin Curtis in 2007.

Hurts, meanwhile, was 22 of 35 for 340 yards and three touchdown passes, one each to Smith, A.J. Brown and Dallas Goedert.

Former Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, the second pick of the 2016 draft to Philadephia, was mostly ineffective for the Commanders.  Wentz was 25 of 43 for 211 yards with two fumbles — one lost.

The Eagles odds to win the NFC Championship and Super Bowl shifted following their Week 3 game as the team remains undefeated.

Super Bowl: 12-1 to 9-1

NFC: 6-1 to 7-2 (+350)

Division: -170 to -375

The Bucs, Packers, Rams or 49ers had previously dominated the top of the NFC Championship odds board.

Philadelphia wasn't the only team making waves following just three weeks of play.

Prior to this past week, the Detroit Lions hadn't been favored in a game in exactly 673 days.  The last time they were favorites you'd have to go all the way back to November 22, 2020.

The Lions are one of three teams (Atlanta, Miami) to cover the spread in all three of their games this season, and they are whopping 6.5-point favorites against Washington in Week 4.  The Commanders are the last team Detroit was actually favored against.

And the New England Patriots odds have gotten much longer following this past weekend's injury to Mac Jones during the last play of the game against Baltimore.  Jones suffered a high ankle sprain and is expected to be out at least four weeks.

New England is currently a 10-point underdog at Green Bay in Week 4 (spread opened at -9). If Jones were playing, the spread would be -7.


Super Bowl: 55-1 to 75-1

AFC: 28-1 to 40-1

Division: 8-1 to 25-1
