The 2022 NFL season was a rollercoaster ride for the Philadelphia Eagles, culminating in a heart-wrenching Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Despite the setback, the team’s performance throughout the season was commendable, showcasing a well-balanced offense and a tenacious defense.
However, the offseason has brought about significant changes, with both coordinators from last year’s coaching staff departing and some key players moving on.
Let’s see how some of those transactions have affected the latest Eagles betting odds for the 2023 NFL season.

- Win Super Bowl: +650
- Win NFC Championship: +250
- Win NFC East: -120

Eagles Super Bowl 58 Odds
Eagles: Win Super Bowl (+650)
Despite the offseason changes, which saw key contributors like RB Miles Sanders, safety C.J. Gardner Johnson, and DT Javon Hargrave leave Philadelphia, the Eagles’ odds of winning the Super Bowl in 2023 stand at +650.
The only team with better odds is the defending champion Chiefs (+600).
The optimism for Philadelphia’s upcoming season stems from the development of QB Jalen Hurts, who played at an MVP level when healthy in 2022.
His five-year contract extension ensures that the Eagles will be a Super Bowl contender coming out of the NFC for years to come.
Eagles NFC Championship Odds
Eagles: Win NFC Championship (+250)
The Eagles (+250) have the best odds to win the NFC Championship in 2023.
The team’s strong performance in 2022, showcased by a 31-7 rout of the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game last February, proved Philadelphia was by far the best team in the conference last year.
While some key contributors departed in free agency, the Eagles were able to retain corners James Bradberry and Darius Slay. Their presence in the secondary should help new DC Sean Desai keep this defense among the best in the league.
And given Philly’s offensive capabilities, there’s little stopping the Eagles from being front-runners in the NFC again this season.
Eagles NFC East Winner Odds
Eagles: Win NFC East (-120)
The Eagles are the prohibitive favorites in the preseason NFC East odds, but it’s worth noting that there hasn’t been a repeat winner of this division since 2004.
Philadelphia was the last team to successfully defend an NFC East title, with Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb leading the Eagles to the top of the division for four straight years.
While this group seems set to overcome this historical trend, they’ll have to fend off challenges posed by the Cowboys and Giants to clinch the title.
Eagles Make Playoffs Odds
Eagles: Make Playoffs (-425)
The Eagles have strong odds of making the NFL playoffs again in 2023, which makes sense given their recent track record. Philadelphia has reached the postseason the last two years and in five of the previous six.
Although it may take some time for new coaches and personnel to adjust, the Eagles have way too much talent on this roster to miss the playoffs in the weaker conference.
While I don’t love the idea of laying -425 odds and locking up my money for the duration of the NFL season, this feels like free money.
Eagles Regular-Season Win Total Odds
Eagles: Over 11.5 Wins (-110)
The Eagles’ 2023 season win total is set at 11.5 wins, with the Over and Under equally priced at -110.
Philly won 14 regular-season games last campaign, tied with Kansas City for the most in the NFL, marking a five-win improvement from 2021.
If Hurts can maintain his level of play from last season, the Eagles should get to 12 wins, despite a demanding schedule.
