There is a 31.6% chance the Cowboys hand the Eagles their first loss of the season this week, according to Sean Koerner.
At FanDuel, you can get odds on when the 5-0 Eagles will finally suffer their first loss of the season. Philadelphia is +180 to lose this week, +400 to lose for the first time in Week 8 against the Steelers, and +700 to lose in Houston on Thursday Night Football in Week 9.
From there, the lowest numbers are +800 in Weeks 11 and 12, when the Eagles play in Indianapolis and home again the Packers.
The Eagles are very surprisingly 5-0, but it looks like it’s pretty legit. They rank second in Football Outsiders’ Overall DVOA, trailing only the Super Bowl favorites: the Buffalo Bills. Philly ranks fifth in both Offense DVOA and Defense.
According to Koerner’s projections, the Eagles may not be an underdog the rest of the season. They’re projected 3-point favorites against Indianapolis and 2-point favorites against Green Bay. A Week 16 matchup in Dallas, per Koerner, is a pick’em.
FanDuel has the Eagles listed as +2300 to finish the regular season undefeated.
Here’s the rest of Philadelphia’s schedule, along with odds for each game to be its first loss, as well as Koerner’s projected spread and chances that game will be the Eagles’ first loss:
