Football betting on the Eagles will be for a team with a lot of veteran experience that is set for another post season run against the football odds. Since the Eagles are an established contender the football betting preseason is not likely to be a priority for them.
The Eagles have gone just 3-5 against the football odds in the past 2 football betting preseasons. Starting quarterback Donovan McNabb will ride the bench for the most part during the football betting exhibition schedule. Backups Kevin Kolb and AJ Feeley will get the majority of football betting snaps in this upcoming preseason.
Kolb is a 3 year pro out of Houston and was a 2nd round draft choice of the Eagles in 2007. He has thrown only 34 passes in his career and 4 of them to the wrong team. His career quarterback rating is a dismal 22 and he figures to get plenty of work in order to fine tune his skills.
Feeley is a 9 year pro out of Oregon and was a 5th round draft pick of the Eagles in 2001. Feeley did not see action last year and started only 2 games for the Eagles in 2007. He has a career quarterback rating of 70 with 27 touchdown passes and 29 interceptions.
An exciting addition to the Eagles roster for the football betting preseason is number one draft pick Jeremy Maclin from Missouri.
Maclin was a breakout kick returner in his 2 football betting seasons at Mizzou and was an explosive play maker at wide receiver as well. Maclin should give the Eagles inconsistent offense a much needed spark and could add considerable football betting value to Philly in the preseason.
Running back LeSean McCoy, a 2nd round draft pick out of Pitt, will also see a good amount of exhibition action as the Eagles work to fine tune their offense. Sadly, long time respected defensive coordinator Jim Johnson passed away after a battle with cancer. Sean McDermott, a long time understudy of Johnson’s, will assume control.
