Flyers, Eagles, Sixers, Or Phillies: Which Team Has The Best Chance At A Championship?

The Flyers, Phillies, and Sixers will all be back in action by this weekend. The Eagles kick off in September. The odds of a championship run vary for each.

Which Philadelphia sports team is most likely to bring a trophy home this year?

The question gains relevance for two reasons. One, the Flyers, Sixers, and Phillies will have resumed their seasons as of the upcoming weekend, while the Eagles are never off the betting radar.

And two, all of the teams are good.

Let’s rank title chances with personal analysis and odds at major NJ online sports betting apps, including DraftKings and FanDuel. All odds are as of July 28.

The Philly team with the best chance of a title may not be the team that immediately comes to mind.

Flyers: Can they win the Stanley Cup in 2020?

Stanley Cup OddsDraftKingsFanDuelFox BetPointsBetSugarHouseBetMGM
Philadelphia Flyers+1000+1100+1100+1050+1000+2500

Bet you didn’t know the Flyers were THE hottest team in the entire NHL before the COVID-19 shut down in March.

They had a 9-1 run, advanced to 89 points, and had joined the league’s elite. They went almost a month without losing a game.

Only the Tampa Bay Lightning, Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche, and Vegas Golden Knights have shorter odds than the Flyers.

Philadelphia has the same odds as the St. Louis Blues, the defending Stanley Cup champions, at FanDuel Sportsbook. Over at BetMGM, the Blues have the higher odds.

Still, Flyers are in the top 10 for a Stanley Cup run.

This is a young team that improved dramatically on defense this season and has magic with first-year head coach Alain Vigneault. He piloted the New York Rangers to the Cup finals in 2014 and his teams historically enjoy a first-season spike.

The Flyers have four 20-goal scorers in Travis Konecny, Sean Couturier, Claude Giroux, and Kevin Hayes. Goaltender Carter Hart is capable of leading this team all the way to the Stanley Cup.

What might deny them? The team does not have a prolific individual scorer and backup goalie Brian Elliott is too big of a dropoff.

Uncertain intangible? The puck has not been dropped in nearly five months.

Good intangible? The Flyers are a strong team at home and away. That should carry over into a neutral site, such as Toronto, where they will play all their Eastern Conference post-season games.

The Flyers are on the right track to win their first Stanley Cup since 1974-75. Is this the time or are they still a year away?

Eagles: Can the Birds make a return to the Super Bowl?

Super Bowl OddsDraftKingsFanDuelFox BetPointsBetSugarHouseBetMGM
Philadelphia Eagles+2000+1900+2000+2000+2000+2000

DraftKings Sportsbook has the Eagles and Sixers at roughly the same odds to hoist a championship trophy.

I lean to the Eagles ahead of the Sixers because they have a Super Bowl triumph and two playoff appearances in the last three seasons.

This is an elite December team and had quarterback Carson Wentz not been injured early in the playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks last year, they may have advanced to the next round.

The team has discipline and character. It is strong at the tight-end position. The Eagles need a power back, a marquee receiver, and stability at quarterback.

Wentz continues to tease Eagles backers, but he hasn’t been the same in his last two seasons back from injury. And now that his playoff injury from last year is on the ledger, his durability is a major question mark.

So is his mobility, without which his passing will suffer. Wentz is not on the level of a Patrick Mahomes or Jimmy Garoppolo, the quarterbacks from February’s Super Bowl.

Nonetheless, he manages a game well. Wentz has nearly three touchdowns per interception over his four-year career. That’s an exceptional ratio. He’s done this without a stellar wide-receiving group.

If the Eagles keep him healthy and supply protection in the form of a running game and breakout receiver, they will become a Super Bowl threat again.

Sixers: What are the odds they’ll be 2020 NBA champs?

NBA Finals OddsDraftKingsFanDuelFox BetPointsBetSugarHouseBetMGM
Philadelphia 76ers+2000+2000+1800+2000+2000+2500

Will the real Sixers please stand up?

The Sixers have a 39-26 record broken into two startling sections as they prepare for the end-of-season games and the post-season in Orlando, Fla.

At home, they are the best team in the NBA. How about 29-2? That’s better than the Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks, the +250 co-title favorites at DraftKings. That’s better than the Los Angeles Clippers, the next best at BetMGM, +325.

Yet the Sixers are 20-1 at most NJ sportsbooks for a championship because of two words: the road.

There, they are worse than the non-playoff bound New York Knicks, who are 21-45 overall, just 10-23 on the road.

Go figure the contrast: better than the Lakers, worse than the Knicks.

Philadelphia will probably land between its home and road extremes at the neutral site. On a given night, they can beat anyone and should be fully healthy now. But can they do it often enough?

This Sixers rise and fall with the outside shooting of its players. This is a tall team that plays away from the basket.

The Sixers have stars. Joel Emblid averages 23.4 points a game. Ben Simmons clicks at 58% field-goal percentage and averages 16.4 per game. He declared himself 100% healthy after a four-month rehab for his ailing back. Tobias Harris chips in more than 19 points a game.

Matisse Thybulle can get scorching hot off the bench in a hurry.

A prevailing sentiment before the mid-March shutdown was that if the Sixers could steal a road game in a playoff series, they would capture that series. Even for a championship.

This team may be a year or so away from their best performance, but their theme song “Here Come the Sixers” is appropriate. They’re coming.

Phillies: To be or not to be at the 2020 World Series?

World Series OddsDraftKingsFanDuelFox BetPointsBetSugarHouseBetMGM
Philadelphia Phillies+3000+3200+3000+2500+3000+2500

Excitement reigned when the Phillies signed Bryce Harper before last season. And they became the talk of the baseball world at 33-22 early last year.

But their bullpen failed miserably, and this team ran out of gas. They finished 81-81, or 11 games under .500 for roughly two-thirds of the season.

Nothing indicates they will rise much beyond .500, despite the heavy amount of over 31.5 season-wins backers at New Jersey sportsbooks for the 60-game season.

Off-season pickups this year included manager Joe Girardi, who will elevate the team. Didi Gregorious will help at shortstop and Zack Wheeler was a good pitching pickup, but this team needed a Gerrit Cole.

There are some nice pieces to this team, but they don’t all fit together. The Phillies need more speed at the top of their order and a lights-out closer.

This is a reasonably good team, but probably not good enough.

DraftKings Kicks Off NFL Betting With Season-Long Pick’em National Championship

The Pro Football Pick’em National Championship at DraftKings Sportsbook is underway. And this NFL pick’em contest features a grand prize of $1 million.

Are you ready for some football, New Jersey? Then you are in luck. DraftKings launched a new NFL pick’em contest featuring a $1 million grand prize.

And NJ sports betting fans will be getting first dibs on the newest, biggest contest being offered.

What is the DraftKings NFL Pick’Em contest?

The Pro Football Pick’em National Championship is a season-long contest in which players pick five games against the spread each week.

The contest will last from Week 1 all the way through Week 16. Players choose games during 14 of those weeks, with two bye weeks of their choice.

All picks will have to be made by 10 a.m. EST on the Sunday of that particular week.

If a player gets all five of their picks right in a given week, they will get a free $100 bet on DraftKings Sportsbook.

The contest costs $1,500 to enter with three total entries allowed.

Now, at the time of this writing, New Jersey was the only state taking part. But DraftKings hopes to add more states before the season begins.

Cash prizes for 50 winners

The top 50 players at the end of the season will all get a cash prize, with the winner getting that coveted $1 million.

The rest of the payouts are as follows:

RankPrize
2nd Place
$250,000
3rd Place$125,000
4th Place$100,000
5th Place$75,000
6th Place$60,000
7th Place$50,000
8th Place$40,000
9th Place$30,000
10th Place$20,000
11th-15th Place$15,000
16th-20th Place$10,000
21st-25th Place$7,500
26th-35th Place$5,000
36th-50th Place$2,500

What if the 2020 NFL season is delayed or canceled?

Like the other US pro sports leagues, the NFL’s 2020 schedule has been affected by the COVID-19 global pandemic. For instance, the NFL Draft was to take place back in April in Las Vegas but was switched to a virtual draft instead.

As the NFL betting season draws near to football’s official start in September, the country is still dealing with the pandemic. This makes it a possibility that the regular season could be affected as well.

In that case, DraftKings does have a contingency plan in case of any delays or changes to the season. Here’s the gist:

  • If the season starts after Sept. 10, DraftKings will simply shift the contest’s start to coincide with the new start of the season.
  • If the season gets canceled after Week 12, DraftKings will still honor payouts for all of the winners. If the season is canceled before Week 12, DraftKings will refund players.
  • If the season is canceled between Weeks 12 and 16, the winners will be determined based on the player’s percentage of correct picks rather than total correct picks. This rule is in place because some players will have used one or both of their bye weeks by then.

How to enter the DraftKings Pro Football Pick’em National Championship

If you are looking to enter the Pro Football Pick’em National Championship, log in to DraftKings Sportsbook and click on the “Pools” tab.

If you are signing up for the first time, you will need to register and deposit funds.

If not, you simply have to opt into the contest, pay the entry fee, and wait ever-so-patiently for the NFL season to kick off.

NFL Betting On The Philadelphia Eagles 2020 Schedule Arrives At NJ Sportsbooks

Eagles fans are counting down to NFL 2020 Week 1 against the Washington Redskins. Will the NJ sports betting crowd take the Birds minus the points?

Philadelphia Eagles fans are aware the 2020 season will begin Sept. 13 at the Washington Redskins. Kickoff is 1 p.m. on FOX.

So while waiting for the other leagues to finalize restart plans, the New Jersey sports betting spotlight belongs to the NFL.

FanDuel Sportsbook has the Week 1 odds.

Those NJ sports betting fans ready to wager on the Birds have several options:

  • Point spread
  • Total wins
  • Player/team props
  • Moneyline

And of course, there are the Super Bowl betting odds.

Who knows if fans will be watching in the stadiums.

Instead of worrying about it, here is a look at three ways to bet on the Eagles this season.

Week 1 Eagles bets at NJ sportsbooks

Granted, there are several weeks between now and when NFL training camps open.

However, it’s never too early to start analyzing NFL betting lines. Picking the Eagles over the Redskins, at this point, seems like a no-brainer.

Washington tied with the Detroit Lions for an NFC worst 3-12 record last season. That is substantial ground to make up compared to the 9-7 Birds.

Come September, all franchises will start fresh.

From a wagering standpoint, the moneyline at DraftKings Sportsbook for the Eagles to win is -225.

Here are the current odds at five NJ sportsbooks:

Sportsbook Point Spread Moneyline
BetMGM -6-250
DraftKings -6.5-286
FanDuel -6.5-290
Fox Bet -6.5-275
PointsBet -6.5-301

The Birds and NFC East betting

Now that the full NFL schedule is public, it is time to take another look at which team has the best shot of winning the division.

The New York Giants finished 4-12 last season. Those North Jersey football fans tend to side with the G-Men.

So those seeking a low risk, high reward option may decide to bet a few bucks that the Giants will surprise the football world.

Will it pay off? Probably not.

But then again, strange things happen in the NFL betting world. Remember last month when the Eagles shocked fans with the second-round selection of Jalen Hurts

Getting back to the NFC East, DraftKings odds show that the Dallas Cowboys remain a slight favorite over the Birds.

  • Cowboys +100
  • Eagles +140
  • Giants +800
  • Redskins +1200

How many games will the Eagles win?

The magic number is 9.5.

BetMGM Sportsbook has posted the projected win totals for 32 NFL franchises. Both the Eagles and Cowboys have a line of 9.5.

So before placing the bet, take a look at the schedule. How many games do you think the Birds can realistically win?

Sweeps of the Giants and Redskins will produce four wins. A split with the Cowboys combined with victories over the Cleveland BrownsArizona Cardinals, and Cincinnati Bengals would make it nine in the win column.

So out of the other seven games, the possibility of Philly producing at least one more victory would seem like a realistic possibility.

Remember nothing is a lock in the NFL, though.

Let the injury-plagued ’19 season serve as a reminder.

The good news is there is plenty of time to think about it.

NFL Draft Aftermath: New Jersey Sportsbooks Set Odds On Rookie Class

Now that the NFL Draft rookie class is getting ready to take the field, NJ sports betting odds on who will be the biggest stars are available for wagering.

The NFL Draft generated some major NJ sports betting buzz last week.

However, exactly how much business has yet to be announced. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement will release the April numbers on May 13.

Will it be enough to offset the lost business from other American sports impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic?

It’s highly unlikely.

At the same time, the totals are expected to be significantly higher than those from 2019.

Now that a new NFL rookie class is arriving on the scene, the futures markets are expanding. Call it setting the table for the more exciting betting news still to come.

Rumor has it that the regular-season schedule will be released next week. And don’t be surprised if it includes a contingency plan.

Until those details are made public, here is a recap and a look ahead at the NFL betting markets.

Eagles + Hurts = big payout

One of the more shocking stories out of this year’s NFL Draft is the fact that the Philadelphia Eagles drafted a quarterback in the second round.

These would be the same Birds who signed Carson Wentz to a four-year extension valued at up to $144 million. Based on the odds, sportsbooks also saw the scenario as a long shot.

Heading into Friday night, FanDuel Sportsbook odds on the Eagles taking a QB at +5500.

The player ended up being Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts.

One DraftKings Sportsbook customer wagered $50 that Hurts would be the selection. It resulted in a $5,050 winning ticket.

William Hill sees historic level of betting

Last year, William Hill NJ released 1o NFL Draft props to its New Jersey and Nevada customers. This time around, the bookmaker offered more than 100 unique props that were exclusively available in the Garden State.

The company sent out a press release on Monday, touching on some of the highlights. Nick Bogdanovich, the William Hill’s US Director of Trading, said there was a historic level of betting for this draft.

This could be the foundation to even bigger years ahead.

“People really love the draft; there’s just so much interest surrounding it,” said Bogdanovich. “I expect the handle to be similar, or even potentially increase, for next year’s draft.”

BetMGM Sportsbook + NFL rookie wagers

Live sports are still on hiatus. Bettors, however, can start thinking about which of last week’s draftees will make the biggest impacts.

And by impact, we mean by winning the Rookie of the Year awards.

BetMGM Sportsbook has the odds for the top honorees. Not surprisingly, No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow (+200) is the early favorite to take home the Offensive ROY honor.

The Heisman Trophy winner is penciled in as the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback of the future. He will be taking over for veteran Andy Dalton, who may or may not be staying. His new team is coming off an NFL-worst 2-14 season.

But having his name called first doesn’t make Burrow a lock. Here is some of the competition:

  • D’Andre Swift +850
  • Tua Tagovailoa + 900
  • Jonathan Taylor +950
  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire +1000

The Eagles first-round selection Jalen Reagor, a wide receiver out of Texas Christian University, is +2800. Hurts is +8000.

Who will be the next defensive star?

Of course, there are several defensive players expected to make immediate contributions, too.

Chase Young, a defensive end out of Ohio State, went No. 2 to the Washington Redskins. Cornerback Jeff Okudah, Young’s college teammate, went No. 3 to the Detroit Lions. 

They are among several top contenders to take home the Defensive ROY trophy.

Here are the current odds from BetMGM:

  • Chase Young +350
  • Isaiah Simmons +900
  • AJ Apensa +1500
  • Grant Delpit +1500
  • Jeff Okudah +1500

NFL Draft 2020: NJ Sports Betting Fans Bet Big On Round 1, The Action Continues

Thanks to the NFL Draft, there is no shortage of NJ sports betting action this weekend. We look at some of the potential wagers available tonight.

NFL Draft betting provides gamblers a sampling of what the new normal might look like.

The retail sportsbooks may still be closed, but the NJ sports betting action, at least for a few nights, is back in the spotlight.

The props and parlay party with Thursday night’s first-round action was fun to watch.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow going No. 1 to the Cincinnati Bengals shocked nobody. He was the heavy favorite.

But as a whole, round one produced a record-setting handle for SugarHouse Sportsbook in New Jersey. According to the press release, the totals have already tripled 2019’s numbers from the three-day event.

Here is a look at some of the highlights and attractive wagers heading into rounds two and three taking place tonight.

NFL Draft round one news and notes

SugarHouse said 76% percent of Thursday’s sports betting handle in NJ was wagered on the NFL. And the overwhelming majority of the action was draft related. Some futures are included in the total.

One person put close to $5,000 down on Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb being the first wide receiver draft. The Dallas Cowboys drafted him at No. 17. But the ticket was not a winner.

The Las Vegas Raiders drafted Henry Ruggs III out of Alabama five spots higher. Teammate Jerry Jeudy was selected by the Denver Broncos No. 15. 

Some bettors hit the wide receiver trifecta that SugarHouse was offering.

New York Giants fans were taken by surprise when their team selected Georgia offensive tackle Andrew Thomas with the No. 4 overall pick. His odds went off at +1000.

Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa being the second quarterback drafted, was one of the night’s more popular props. Not to mention, the Miami Dolphins took him fifth, making the ticket a winner

SugarHouse bettors have unfinished business

Heading into tonight (7 p.m. EST start), some bets remain open.  

Will Notre Dame’s Cole Kmet (-400) be the first tight end drafted? None were taken in the first round. 

 And based on these odds he remains the heavy favorite:

  • Adam Trautman +500
  • Harrison Bryant +1100
  • Albert Okwuegbunam +1400
  • Hunter Bryan +1600

All of the safeties are still available, too. It means customers who have Alabama’s Xavier McKinney (-200) going first are still alive. Here is a look at the competition:

  • Grant Delpit +400
  • Jeremy Chinn +500
  •  Antoine Winfield Jr. +700
  • Kyle Dugger +2500

But no matter how things unfold, Mattias Stetz, COO of Rush Street Interactive, which operates the SugarHouse Sportsbook, said the opening night was “outstanding.” 

 “We are delighted with the strong wagering action and how bettors supported many imaginative prop bets.” 

“They really prepared well for the draft and they weren’t afraid to bet heavily on some long shots.”

DraftKings Sportsbook and the QB spotlight

The top-four projected quarterbacks in this year’s draft class heard their names called last night. However, there are still several big names on the board.

The next three players likely to attract the most attention are:

  • Jacob Eason, Washington
  • Jake Fromm, Georgia
  • Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma

Philadelphia Eagles NFL Draft betting continues

Hey Philadelphia Eagles fans, you may or may not be happy with the selection of Texas Christian wide receiver Justin Reagor.

DraftKings has already set the over/under on receiving yards for the 2020 season at 800.5. Currently, he is not one of the favorites to win Rookie of the Year:

Here are the odds from FanDuel Sportsbook for those looking to bet what position the Birds will draft in the second round:

  • Linebacker +150
  • Cornerback or safety +280
  • Offensive line or wide receiver +500
  • Defensive line +700
  • Running back +1500
  • Tight end +4000
  • Quarterback +5500

In other words, NFL Draft prop betting is far from finished.

Tick Tock: 5 Potential Philadelphia Eagles Bets Live On The NFL Draft Clock

The Philadelphia Eagles are about to be on the NJ sports betting clock.

The first round of the NFL Draft starts at 8 p.m. Thursday night.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there won’t be war rooms or fan parties. All picks will be announced virtually.

But after several weeks without live sports, fans will be glued to the TV.

As of now (pending a trade), the Birds have the 21st pick and eight total selections.

New Jersey sportsbooks are offering an endless list of props, parlays and free contests.

1. Position of Eagles’ first-round selection

Much of the chatter heading into the NFL Draft has been centered around which wide receiver Philly will take.  The odds have shifted slightly over the last couple of weeks.

But will the Eagles actually go offense in the first round?

They could use a safety to replace veteran Malcolm Jenkins.

A linebacker is another possibility.

FanDuel Sportsbook has odds on all these scenarios. The most unlikely picks are a quarterback or tight end (both at +10,000), thanks to Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz.

Here are the rest of the odds:

  • Wide receiver -230
  • Linebacker +500
  • Cornerback +650
  • Safety +850
  • Defensive lineman +1500
  • Offensive lineman +1900
  • Running back +4000

2. Who will the Birds pick?

Besides betting on the position, there are players odds.

The tricky part is trying to figure out whether or not General Manager Howie Roseman is going to trade up. But for conversational purposes, we will assume the Eagles stay at No. 21.

Justin Jefferson, a wide receiver from LSU, is the favorite at +170. He finished his junior year with 1,540 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns.

Here are the odds that the Eagles will pick somebody else:

  • Denzel Mims +500
  • CeeDee Lamb +750
  • Henry Ruggs III +750
  • Jalen Reagor +950
  • Kenneth Murray +1100
  • Brandon Aiyuk +1200
  • Patrick Queen +1300
  • Jerry Jeudy +1400

Murray, a linebacker out of Oklahoma, and Queen, a linebacker out of LSU, are the only defensive players.

3. DraftKings Sportsbook odds boost

Some bettors out there may go with Lamb as the pick. But the majority of the mock drafts have the Oklahoma wide receiver going before the Eagles are on the clock.

Making a move, however, is not out of the question.

DraftKings Sportsbook is boosting the odds on the Eagles drafting Lamb to +1085 (from +1000).

4. Stick with the WR theme

Outside of the Eagles, how many teams are going to select a WR with their first pick?

DraftKings has set over/under odds for the number of players taken at each position in the opening round. For example, the wide receiver line is set at 5.5.  The over is -200 while the under is +163.

5. Will the Eagles trade their pick?

BetMGM Sportsbook is offering unique NFL Draft props. This includes setting odds on which teams will make a first-round trade.

The Eagles odds, along with several other teams, are +110.  Call it even money.

Bettors may prefer going with total trades made in the first round. The lines range from 3.5 to 6.5.

The palooza of props also includes the exact number of first-round trades. Exactly five (+225) is the favorite, while none (+3500) is the long shot. A scenario where no trades take place seems highly unlikely.

The bottom line is there isn’t any shortage of NFL Draft betting options. With no pro sports to watch, this as good as it gets for now.

At least until May when the Eagles 2020 schedule is released.
