First-round spread: Eagles (-??) over Saints
Share This Post

Back in August, you didn't think the Eagles would finish the season with a winning record.

But they did (10-6).

You didn't think they would make the playoffs -- let alone win the division.

But they did both of those too (see Instant Replay).

And if they were to do all of that, you certainly didn't think they'd be favored in their first playoff game.

But they are.

According to Pregame.com, the Eagles open as 2.5-point favorites over the wild-card Saints, who finished 11-5, second in the NFC South behind the division champ Carolina Panthers.

The Eagles host the Saints on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. on NBC (see story).

Your other playoff odds for the wild-card round:

49ers -2.5 at Packers -- Sunday, 4:40 p.m., FOX

Chiefs +2.5 at Colts -- Saturday, 4:35 p.m, NBC

Chargers +7 at Bengals -- Sunday, 1:05 p.m., CBS
