We are only several weeks away from the return of Eagles football. Well, sort of. The Philadelphia Eagles will start training camp towards the end of July. On July 25th, the team will have both rookies and veterans report to the Novacare Complex to begin their NFC title defense. Until then, here’s our break down of the latest Super Bowl odds, the running backs, and more!

NFL Super Bowl odds: Eagles and Chiefs are favorites heading into Training Camp

The Eagles started this offseason tucked in behind the likes of the Bengals and Bills in the NFL Super Bowl odds list, but that soon changed when the NFL Draft rolled around. Philadelphia’s odds dropped to +800 moments after their impressive draft class was finalized and momentum seems to have only increased as more time has passed. The team is now only +650 to win the Super Bowl, just 50 points behind the Kansas City Chiefs, who were previously the overwhelming favorite.

This means if you were to bet $10 on the Eagles to win the Super Bowl, you’d win $65 if they do.

As far as NFC teams go, it is interesting to see the Dallas Cowboys now priced at +1400. Dallas was realistically only a Tony Pollard injury away from facing the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game last year and have enjoyed a strong offseason. There could be some value in backing Dallas at this point, but they are over double the price of the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL Super Bowl odds list.

Are the Eagles’ running backs the weakest link of the 2023 roster?

The Eagles are a team that many are praising to be very well constructed coming into the 2023 season. After an incredible campaign that led to them battling with the Chiefs on an over-watered field for the uptime prize in football, the team suffered some losses in the offseason.

One of those losses came from the offense. After a couple of up-and-down seasons to start his career, Miles Sanders had a huge breakout season in 2022. He led the Eagles’ rushing attack with 259 rushing attempts for 1,269 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. All of those numbers were career highs for the former Penn State product.

NFC East Spotlight: Have the Cowboys significantly improved this offseason?

The Philadelphia Eagles report to training camp in less than three weeks so let’s snap out of the summer doldrums by looking at the rest of the NFC East. The reigning division champions appear to be locked and loaded for another Super Bowl run in 2023. It would be mildly surprising to see them stumble, but stranger things have happened.

Remember, the Super Bowl loser from the previous year tends to struggle. Only 39 runner-up teams (out of 56) qualified for the playoffs in the following season, with 17 Super Bowl losers failing to make the playoffs at all. And only one team — the 2018 New England Patriots — in the past 20 years has returned to the Super Bowl after losing it the year before

The idea of raising two ultra-competitive boys, raging with unfettered testosterone and relentless ambition, sounds like a challenge for any mother. Now imagine that both of those kids grew up to be superstar football players who lived out their Super Bowl dreams in front of the world.

It’s not a hallucination for Donna Kelce. It is very much her reality after watching her two sons — Jason Kelce and Travis Kelce — go from chickens in her roost to two of the biggest names in the sport. Donna Kelce carried a proud-yet-sarcastic smile at her son’s Beer Bash fundraiser in Sea Isle City on June 28 as she recalled parenting them back in those early days in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.
