Washington Commanders vs. Philadelphia Eagles Picks, Predictions, Odds
Sports Betting Expert
Week 10 of the NFL season will conclude on Monday night with what was originally supposed to be Carson Wentz’ return to South Philly, but instead, it will be Taylor Heinicke and the Washington Commanders squaring off against Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles. Coverage begins from Lincoln Financial Field at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN.
WASHINGTON COMMANDERS vs. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES BETTING PREDICTION
The Eagles are the lone undefeated team left in the NFL entering Week 10, which is an impressive feat, however, there’s been lots of chatter regarding their underwhelming strength of schedule thus far, and rightfully so, as Philly’s eight opponents currently own a record of 22-36-1 on the season, which at the very least, leaves some doubt regarding the overall merit of the Birds’ triumphant 8-0 start.
Fortunately, the Eagles’ schedule doesn’t get any tougher this week, as Philly draws a home rematch against the Commanders on Monday night, after holding Wentz and co. to just eight points on 240 total yards in a dominant 24-8 road win over Washington back in Week 3.
I’ll take the under here, as the Commanders have looked much better with Heinicke under center, however, this is still a squad that’s scored 17 PTS or less in six of their last seven matchups (14.9 PPG), but to the credit of their defense, I think we’ll see them keep things relatively competitive after seeing them allow 21 PTS or less in five straight contests entering Week 10 (17 PPG).
Score Prediction: Eagles 24, Commanders 16
Best Bet: Under 43.5 (-110)

WASHINGTON COMMANDERS BETTING ANALYSIS
The Commanders have been on quite the rollercoaster through the first half of the season, as Washington scored just 18.1 PPG and allowed 25.6 PPG across a frustrating 1-4 start to the season, highlighted by Wentz and co. turning the ball over eight times in those five contests.
However, the Commanders have turned the ball over just three times in their last four affairs, and while there’s certainly other factors to the equation, it resulted in a solid 3-1 run, despite scoring just 17.3 PPG during that span.
The Eagles currently lead the league in takeaways at 2.3 per game, but if Heinicke and co. can limit their turnovers, and give their defense a fair chance to win the field position battle, Washington should be able to compete in this matchup.
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES BETTING ANALYSIS
Philly’s defense was relatively pedestrian in DC Jonathan Gannon’s first campaign with the team, as the Eagles’ defense ranked 19th in scoring 10th in total yardage last season (23.1 PPG, 330 YPG), which was good enough to keep them afloat in most contests, but not enough compete with upper tier NFC squads like the Bucs and Packers.
However, Philly has played excellent on both sides of the script this season, highlighted by the Eagles’ defense allowing just 16.9 PPG and forcing a league-high 18 turnovers across a perfect 8-0 run to open the year, which is the type of dominance capable of propelling this squad into title contention if they continue to generate 28+ PPG on the offensive side of the ball. But we’ll just have to wait and see how they stack up against some stronger defensive squads later in the year.
