Over the next few weeks, we will be taking you through the various ways you can bet on the Eagles in 2023, starting with quarterback props. Jalen Hurts was an MVP candidate for the majority of the 2022 season and looks poised to take another step forward after receiving his big payday. The only downside here is that with such hype comes less value. Luckily for you, we’ve found some Jalen Hurts props that do offer some big upside.

Jalen Hurts to lead the league in passing yards +2800
It feels weird to see a Jalen Hurts prop priced at nearly 30/1, and that’s because it is. You won’t find many ahead of the upcoming season, but understandably, backing Hurts to lead the entire league in passing yards commands a higher price-tag.
For context, Patrick Mahomes led the league in passing last year with 5,250 yards. Hurts landed 10th with 3,701, although it should be noted that he did miss two games. If we take his average of 246 yards per game and add an extra two, he would’ve thrown for around 4,193 yards. This would’ve pushed him just one place higher into 9th, displacing Trevor Lawrence and sitting behind Geno Smith.
The truth is that Jalen Hurts does his damage by being the best dual-threat quarterback in the league. There is nobody that his incredible combination of arm strength and sheer athleticism/speed. It would be hard for any QB to keep pace with someone who threw more than 200 extra passes in the same year, let alone one as dynamic as Hurts.
With that said, there is reason for optimism.
The Eagles have a very tricky schedule in 2023 and this may force Hurts to throw from behind as opposed to allowing the run-first offense to dictate the tempo. If that’s the case, we could see more performances that mirror his 315-yard outing against the Bears in what became a 5-point win.
There is also the belief that Jalen Hurts will once again improve in 2023. His seismic leap in growth as a passer was beyond impressive last year and if he can raise the bar once again, who are we to set any kind of ceiling on what this extraordinary young man can achieve? There may be no better time to back Jalen Hurts to lead the league in passing, especially at such a saucy price.
Jalen Hurts 400+ passing yards in 2+ games +150
Passing for 400 yards is a mammoth feat for any quarterback. For context, it’s a feat that Patrick Mahomes only accomplished twice in 2022.
Jalen Hurts didn’t throw for more than 400 yards in a single game in more than 2022. The closest he came was 380 against the Titans. The odds being so short here would imply that Vegas sees Hurts ascending to that next level of passer this upcoming season. Betting on this outcome before Hurts crosses that milestone for the first time could be a logical play. For all we know, the line could be 3.5 by this time next year…
Jalen Hurts to win the MVP Award in 2023 +1100
If you’re going to bet on the 400-yard market, you may as well back this instead. If Hurts has not one, but TWO 400+ yard games in 2023, it’s highly unlikely that they’re going to be flukes. This means that not only would the Eagles likely own one of the most dangerous offenses in the league, but that the Captain of the Ship would be Jalen Hurts, automatically inserting him into the MVP race.
If you want to challenge any of the exotic Jalen Hurts props, this feels like the best way to encompass them all at once.
Jalen Hurts to surpass 300+ passing yards in 8 games +250
This is the first Jalen Hurts prop where there is some really strong value. He eclipsed this mark 4 times in 2022. We know there is a tougher schedule ahead, so he’s far more likely to find himself in shootouts or games where the Eagles suffer an early score. Of all the Hurts props so far, this feels like the most likely one to land and the odds are a little more inviting.
Any Eagles player to have 15+ rushing/receiving touchdowns +350
The wildcard here is Jalen Hurts who mustered 13 rushing scores last year. Miles Sanders had 11 of his own, but this revamped backfield has no head of the table in what will be a committee approach. A.J Brown led the receiving corps with 11 touchdowns.
After all the controversy surrounding the Egales’ goal-line QB rush that became absolutely unstoppable last year, you can bet your bottom dollar they’ll run it into the ground this year.
It’s not out of the question for an Eagles player to cross that 15 TD mark and I feel like it has more chance of landing than some of the other Jalen Hurts props (and the odds are better too).
