NFL Playoffs Betting: Eagles vs. Vikings at Sports Gambling

NFL playoffs betting includes two NFC teams that sort of backed and lucked into the NFL playoffs odds listings.

NFL playoffs betting gods shined brightly on the Eagles last week while the Vikings also had their share of luck to get posted onto the NFL playoffs odds board.  The Philadelphia Eagles had to have nearly everything go perfect last Sunday to enter NFL playoffs betting action and that’s exactly what happened.

To their credit, Philly destroyed Dallas 44-6 as 2.5 point chalks in a game that determined which team would see NFL playoffs betting action.  The Eagles were listed as around a 3 point NFL playoffs odds favorite for this one.  Philadelphia would appear to be a solid NFL playoffs chalk as they were 8-5 against the spread in that role this season.

The Eagles are a balanced NFL playoffs betting team as they ranked 9th overall on offense while ranking 3rd overall on defense.  Quarterback Donovan McNabb had a solid season and is the Eagles clear NFL playoffs betting leader.  McNabb had an 86.4 rating, passed for 3916 yards, and had a 23/11 TD/INT ratio.

Brian Westbrook rushed for 936 yards, a 4.0 average, and 9 TD’s to offer balance.  The Minnesota Vikings do not have the best NFL playoffs betting momentum heading into this matchup.  The Vikings would not appear to have a lot of NFL playoffs odds value as they covered just 1 of their final 4 games.

Minnesota also does not have strong NFL playoffs betting credentials has a home team as they were just 3-5 against the spread as a host in 2008.  The Vikings also may be a weak NFL playoffs betting dog as they went 3-5 against the board as a pup this year.

Minnesota does, however, bring some assets into the NFL playoffs starting with their 6th ranked defense.  Their 17th ranked offense, however, is an NFL playoffs betting liability.

Neither quarterback Gus Frerotte or Tarvaris Jackson inspire NFL playoffs betting confidence.  Adrian Peterson is the Vikings top weapon as he rushed for 1760 yards and a 4.8 YPC average and 10 TD’s.
