Say what you want about how every team in the NFC East has struggled this season, but you can’t deny the fact that this division is superbly competitive.

With the Giants losing in Week 14 along with Washington, the Cowboys, and the Eagles all winning, the division now has a new leader — the Football Team currently sits on top at 6-7. Washington recently defeated the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 23-15 this past Sunday, and with that, the Football Team are now the favorites to win the NFC East.

Nonetheless, the public still isn’t throwing money their way.

Handle Rank Team Odds % of Handle % of Bets
1 DAL Cowboys +10000 64% 93%
2 NY Giants +400 16% 2%
3 PHI Eagles +600 13% 4%
4 WAS Football Team -305 7% 1%

Despite the fact that they’re in last place and possess +10000 odds of winning the division, the Cowboys are still responsible for 64% of the handle and 93% of the bets.

Dallas just rolled over the Bengals in Week 14 with a 30-7 win on the road.

Even though Washington is on a four-game winning streak, the Football Team is still not gaining a significant amount of respect from the betting public. Ahead of Week 15, Ron Rivera’s team is responsible for just 7% of the handle and 1% of the bets.

The Giants, on the other hand, are receiving 16% of the handle and 2% of the bets. Sure, they’re 4-1 in their last five games, but the recent loss to the Arizona Cardinals this past Sunday was especially brutal. Big Blue’s offense couldn’t find a spark, and a number of turnovers along with various punts from deep in New York’s territory gave the Cardinals great field position a multitude of times throughout the game. With the 26-7 loss, the Giants drop to No. 2 in the division with three regular-season games to play and are +400 to win the NFC East.

And finally, the Eagles, after four consecutive defeats, finally came together with new starting quarterback Jalen Hurts and ousted the first-place Saints by a score of 24-21. However, they’re still in third place in the division and carry +600 odds when it comes to winning the NFC East crown.
