The Philadelphia Eagles start their preseason schedule with a game against the Indianapolis Colts on August 16 at the Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia. The Colts are likely to try and get back to the playoffs this season, after their disappointing performance and defeat to the New England Patriots in last year's AFC Championship game. The team has surprisingly released their right tackle Gosder Cherilus, owing to knee surgery he underwent during the off season. But all eyes are on Andrew Luck, the new quarterback of the Colts, who is a true superstar and one that can carry off the colts as true contenders for the super bowl.
The Philadelphia Eagles' big player is Sam Bradford, who could be the Eagles' starting quarterback if his knee heals enough to let him play. The fans will know it soon enough if he is part of the training camp beginning August 2. While there are chances of Bradford getting hurt again preseason, it is a chance the head coach Chip Kelly is willing to take for adding value to the team.
Online sportsbooks have placed Philadelphia Eagles with the seventh best odds for winning the championship this season. The 2015 Philadelphia Eagles crew has a lot to prove this season, and those into football betting are in favor of the birds wining, because not many of their team members have suffered injuries. Also, Bradford's ability to play is still a question mark, which means it could go either way, so fans interested in football betting are willing to take their risks with the Eagles.
That said, the Indianapolis Colts are more favored on the top online sportsbooks, given that they have the 4th best odds to win the super bowl this season.
