The Eagles have always had one of the most passionate fanbases in all of sports and, with Pennsylvania sporting a full-service legal betting market, the team has become a popular bet.
Philadelphia Eagles Franchise History
The Philadelphia Eagles have a storied history that dates back to the early days of the NFL in the 1930s. Before Super Bowls existed, the Eagles won three NFL championships.
With Dick Vermeil as head coach and Ron Jaworski as quarterback, the Eagles appeared in their first SuperBowl in 1981, but the team fell against the Raiders, 27-10.
For the rest of the ‘80s, despite defensive end Reggie White’s dominance, the team never escaped the Divisional Round.
It wasn’t until Donovan McNabb’s arrival in the early 2000s that the franchise found sustained success. McNabb and company took the Eagles to five NFC Championship games but just one Super Bowl, which the team lost.
In 2018, Philadelphia felt the weight lift from its shoulders when backup quarterback Nick Foles led the team to a stunning Super Bowl victory over Tom Brady and Patriots.
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles in Pennsylvania
Both retail and online sports betting are fully operational in Pennsylvania. Retail betting arrived in the Keystone State in 2018 while online sports betting made its debut the following year.
With one of the most robust online betting markets in the country, Pennsylvania offers bettors a great opportunity to capitalize on different welcome offers across the industry.
Eagles’ fans looking to put their money on their team might find something like this on one of the many available betting apps in the state:
· Eagles -6.5
· Giants +6.5
Here, the Eagles are 6.5-point favorites over the New York Giants. In order for a spread bet on the Eagles to cash, the Eagles must beat the Giants by at least 7 points.
If the Eagles were to win by fewer than 7, or lose the game, a bet on the Eagle -6.5 would settle as a loss.
Philadelphia Eagles Sportsbook Partnerships
The Eagles have been one of the most aggressive NFL franchises when it comes to sportsbook partnerships and the overall embrace of legal sports betting.
As of March 2022, the Eagles have partnered with three sportsbook operators: DraftKings, FoxBet, and Unibet. In October 2021, the franchise also partnered with Genius Sports, the NFL’s exclusive supplier of real-time and play-by-play stats.
Lincoln Financial Field’s FoxBet Lounge and DraftKings Field Club benefited immensely from Genius Sports’ live feed. The only greater beneficiary is the fans.
Fans are able to view real-time betting odds in the stadium’s lounges and can even scan QR codes through the venue to take advantage of up-to-date offers.
The Philadelphia Eagles are providing one of the most unique experiences for fans and bettors.
