Just how good will the Eagles be in 2023-24? They have the second best odds in football to win the Super Bowl across the betting landscape, but the experts are extremely torn on their predictions this season.
Not every website had their writers picking in the same way so we tried to make it clear how each outlet was making predictions.
Of 75 people predicting a Super Bowl winner, just 15 of them (20%) picked the Eagles to win it all. Another 10 predicted they'd lose in the big game. All of the "experts" did have the Eagles making it to the playoffs.
We did our own picks, with three quarters of our staff picking the Eagles to win it all.
Here's a rundown of some of the Eagles' predictions we found:
Marcus Hayes: NFC East winners, lose in NFC Championship
Jeff McLane: NFC East winners, lose in Super Bowl
David Murphy: NFC East winners, lose in Super Bowl
Olivia Reiner: NFC East winners, lose in Super Bowl
Mike Sielski: NFC East winners, lose in Divisional Round
EJ Smith: NFC East winners, lose in Super Bowl
Josh Tolentino: NFC East winners, win Super Bowl
The Worldwide Leader's Football Power Index simulated the Eagles winning the Super Bowl (over the Ravens).
But it eventually started clicking, as the Eagles became the top-five team on both sides of the ball they were expected to be. Philadelphia finished the regular season on a nine-game winning streak, clinching the NFC East and earning the No. 2 seed in the conference. The Eagles beat the Commanders 29-20 in the wild-card round before taking down the 49ers 32-23 in a battle of NFC heavyweights. The surprising Vikings brought their offense to the NFC Championship Game, but that's it, as the Eagles prevailed 38-31.
In the Super Bowl, the Eagles' defense -- fueled by second-year defensive tackle Jordan Davis' run-stuffing and linebacker Haason Reddick's pass rush -- stifled the Ravens' offense. The Eagles won 14-10, and redemption for Super Bowl LVII was complete. [ESPN]
ESPN's Mike Clay picks the Eagles to beat the Dolphins and win the Super Bowl.
