Eagles win shakes up the NFC East betting landscape originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

Ladies and gentlemen! 

At 2-4-1, your Philadelphia Eagles are in first place in the NFC East.

And now they have leapfrogged the Dallas Cowboys as the betting favorites to win the division.

Here's a look at the latest lines after the Eagles' Thursday night win over the Giants, per NBC Sports Betting partner PointsBet:

It hasn’t been pretty, but nonetheless at +110 ($10 bet to win $11) the Eagles are a slight favorite to win the division per PointsBet. This will certainly change if Dallas wins at Washington on Sunday and regains first place in the East, but nothing is a given in this division.

Right after their tie with the Bengals, which moved their record to 0-2-1, the Eagles were +275 to be crowned division champions.

That low point marked their longest odds throughout the season, so far. Leading into Thursday night’s game versus the Giants, the Eagles were at +135, while the Cowboys were listed at +100.

Considering the division is a mess right now, there will be plenty of ups and downs and twists and turns, like a roller coaster on the Jersey Shore boardwalk, before we're through 17 weeks of football. The only difference is a trip on the boards is a lot more fun, and less exhausting, than sitting through three hours of NFC Least football.
