The Philadephia Eagles are coming off a dominant showing in a convincing 24-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football. Darius Slay and the secondary did a great job slowing down Justin Jefferson.
The Washington Commanders were unable to erase a 22-point deficit in a 36-27 loss to the Detroit Lions. Carson Wentz was constantly under duress, being sacked five times.
Let’s take a look at the Philadelphia vs Washington betting tips.
Eagles vs Commanders Odds
The Eagles are 6.5-point favorites, which seems like a bit too much as a road team against a division rival. The total sits at 49 points, which looks about right, especially considering how good Philly’s defense looked in Week 2.

Eagles vs Commanders Prediction
Eagles 24, Commanders 20
The Eagles pass defense has been highly impressive in their two wins this season. They’ve held Jared Goff to 5.81 yards per attempt (Y/A) and Kirk Cousins to 4.8 Y/A.
Philly sacked Cousins twice along with three interceptions. They’ll have an opportunity to generate more of a pass rush against Washington, who really struggled in pass protection against the Lions.
Wentz was sacked five times in that game. While he led a comeback in the second half, let’s remember that they were down 22-0 coming into halftime. We could see them have some trouble against this Eagles defense.
Having said that, this game means a lot to Wentz, facing the team that cast him aside in favor of Jalen Hurts. We could see an extra motivated Commanders team as they try to get this win in a “revenge game" for their quarterback.
The Eagles have the advantage on both sides of the ball, but I project Washington to keep it relatively close in this home game.

Under 49 Total Points (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook
The Eagles have done a great job slowing down opposing passing games this year. I expect their secondary to cause problems to Wentz, resulting in an Under here. I’d rather target this market than lay 6.5 points on a road team in a division game.

Under 25.5 1st Half Points (-125) at FanDuel Sportsbook
We’ll double down on the total by adding the 1st half Under as well. Washington really started out flat against the Lions, getting shut out in the first half.
I can see them struggling early on against Philly as well if they don’t improve in pass protection. Wentz was constantly under duress in Detroit.
