Eagles vs Commanders Predictions & Best Bets

Last Updated: Oct 24, 2023

The 6-1 Philadelphia Eagles head to Washington to face the 3-4 Commanders in a Week 8 divisional clash. The Eagles are coming off an impressive 31-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football. That effort was led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, who suffered a knee injury during the game but was able to play through it.

Hurts’ status needs to be monitored leading up to Sunday, but early reports indicate the injury shouldn’t force him to miss any time, and he’s expected to be available against the Commanders. With that in mind, let’s dive into some predictions and wagers.

Eagles vs Commanders Predictions

Score Pick: Eagles 23, Commanders 19

Despite the three-game separation in the standings, these two teams were evenly matched when they met in Philadelphia less than a month ago. It took overtime to decide the game, which the Eagles won 34-31 on a 54-yard field goal by kicker Jake Elliot.

Philadelphia has had Washington’s number in recent meetings between the two, having won four of the past five. Even if Jalen Hurts is less than 100%, the Eagles should be able to make it five wins in six games against this opponent.

Eagles vs Commanders Best Bets & Props

Longest Touchdown Under 38.5 Yards (-115)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 2 units

After scoring a touchdown longer than 38.5 yards in three of their first four games, the Eagles have failed to do so in each of their last three. They have no problem moving the ball down the field methodically behind their elite offensive line, relying on dynamic running back D’Andre Swift as well as the mobile Hurts.

With the QB coming into this game banged up and dealing with a knee injury, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Eagles lean more on Swift and the defense to grind out a divisional road victory, making this under my NFL bet of the day.

Eagles Under 2.5 Touchdowns (+120)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

While the Eagles rank third in the NFL in yards per game (389.3), finishing drives with touchdowns has been an issue this season. They rank sixth in the league in both field goal attempts (2.7) and field goals made (2.4) per game.

The Eagles have scored two or fewer touchdowns in four of their seven games this season, partly because Hurts is tied with Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for the league lead in interceptions. His eight picks have taken away several scoring opportunities.

The Commanders’ defense will try to force Hurts into making mistakes and continue to limit the touchdown equity.

Eagles Win Both Halves (+160)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 units

This pick is simple. The Eagles are the better team on both sides of the ball and it’s not especially close. They boast a great defensive line, led by defensive tackles Fletcher Cox, Jordan Davis, and rookie Jalen Carter, as well as defensive ends Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat. That group figures to have its way with a Washington offensive line that has given up a league-high 40 sacks through seven weeks.

Hurts, A.J. Brown, and company should have little trouble moving the ball against a Commanders defense that ranks 29th in opponent yards per game (374.1). Philly will do just enough to squeak out a road victory.

Eagles vs Commanders Same Game Parlay

Eagles vs Commanders SGP (+242)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 units

  • Commanders Over 17.5 (-110)
  • Eagles (-278)

The Commanders have scored at least 18 points in five of their seven games this season and average 20.0 points per game through seven weeks. The Eagles are one of the best teams in the NFL and enter this game as touchdown favorites despite being on the road.

Additionally, Philadelphia has won five of its last six road games against Washington and 10 of its last 12 road games overall. Expect both of these trends to continue in Week 8 as the Eagles narrowly defeat their divisional foes.
