Washington FT -6½ at Philadelphia for all the (small) marbles

It’s come to this in the NFC East – The final spot on this year’s NFL playoffs will be decided in a pair of NFC East intradivisional games, including the very last game of the 2020 season.

Four months ago, the season began for most of these four teams optimistically: The Dallas Cowboys brough a Super Bowl-winning coach for their big-name roster, the Eagles likewise looked forward to improving on a mediocre 2019; the Giants rebuilt their coaching staff and boasted seemingly the best power RB in football; even the Washington Football Team dropped their racist mascot, drafted a future defensive MVP and gave us the feelgood story of the season with the Alex Smith comeback.

Sure, 2020 happened – but these four teams all had issues of a fairly typical NFL sort: Injuries took out offensive sparkplugs for Dallas (Dak Prescott), New York (Saquon Barkley) and Philadelphia (numerous). And with Smith taking punishment when playing, Kyle Allen and Dwayne Haskins got a combined 10 starts at quarterback for a combined 2-8 SU.

So what’s the bet in an otherwise even more dismal than usual week 17? Glad you asked! We’re looking at…

Washington Football Team -6½ at Philadelphia Eagles, over/under 43 points

Facts relevant to this game: The Eagles have 9 of 22 regular starters out for this game, including Fletcher Cox; the temperature in Philly is expected to peak at around 40⁰ with rain all day and night the Eagles have been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention realistically about two weeks ago; and this Washington defense is freakin’ elite.

For NFLbets, this is the rub: While these offenses may be playing checkers, the FT D is playing 3-D chess. Since week 7, opponents are averaging just 17.3 point per game, and the Team is 5-5 SU/7-3 ATS in that span while the under is 7-3. Additionally, no NFC East team has put up more than 23 against Washington,.

And yes, it’s hard to imagine the 7-9 Washington Football Team making the playoffs with what could ultimately be their fourth different starting quarterback in 2020, namely Taylor Heinicke – but hey, Mitch Trubisky and his long-left-for-dead Chicago Bears could very well be in this same postseason. This has been 2020, after all. Take the Washingotn Football Team -6½ at Philadelphia, and take the under on an O/U of 43 points.
