Thanks to the creative oddsmakers at BetUS, you could potentially cash in big with a fun-filled NFL special odds wager on just how many victories it will take for any team to claim the division crown.

Philadelphia Eagles (2-4-1)
Injury-riddled Philadelphia is currently on top in the division, but how the Birds got there certainly isn’t anything to be proud of. The Eagles lost in the nation’s capitol against Washington in Week 1 before falling to the Rams at home the following week. Philadelphia then played Cincinnati to a 23-23 tie at home in Week 3 before getting past the banged-up 49ers in San Francisco in Week 4 to record their first win. The Birds then lost at Pittsburgh and at home against Baltimore the next two weeks before squeaking past the division rival Giants last weekend.
Now, let’s look ahead to project Philly’s final win total. The Birds host pitiful Dallas in Week 8 and go on the road to take on the Giants in Week 10, following their Week 9 bye. I’ve got the Eagles winning both games to improve to 4-4-1.
In Week 11, Philadelphia goes on the road to face Cleveland and that meeting should result in another victory, although the key word here is ‘should.’ Now, sitting at 5-4-1, I’ve got Philly dropping four straight from weeks 12-16. The Birds will fall at home against Seattle, on the road at Green Bay, at home against New Orleans and at Arizona to hit Week 17 sitting at 5-8-1. A road win at Dallas and a season-ending home win over Washington would leave the Birds at 7-8-1, though again, I’m not sure the Eagles are beating Cleveland, not to mention their season-ending division dates against the Cowboys and Washington could produce at least one loss. Still, as it stands right now, the Eagles finish with at least six wins and possibly seven!
Prediction: 7 Wins

Dallas Cowboys (2-5)
Dysfunctional Dallas kicked off its 2020 campaign with a narrow road loss against the Rams before stunning the Falcons 40-39 in Week 2 to get their first win of the season. The Cowboys then lost at Seattle and at home against Cleveland before getting past the division rival Giants in Week 5. Dallas then lost at home against Arizona and on the road at Washington last weekend and now, go into their Week 8 matchup against Philadelphia at 2-5.
The Cowboys should lose at Philly, at home against Pittsburgh and at Minnesota in Week 11 in their next three games. Dallas should manage to get past Washington in Week 12, but the Boys are going to lose handily against Baltimore the following week. A win at Cincinnati isn’t guaranteed and two more losses will come in weeks 15 and 16 at home against the 49ers and Eagles. Dallas will close out the regular season with a win over the Giants, but lest anyone forget, the Cowboys are completely inept on defense. They rank a discouraging 27th in total defense and dead last against the run and points allowed (34.7 ppg). If Dallas wins more than two more regular season games, I’ll be stunned!
Prediction: 4 Wins
Washington Football Team (2-5)
Washington kicked off the Ron Rivera era in style by upsetting Philadelphia 27-17 in its opener before falling at Arizona 30-15 the following week. Football Team then lost at Cleveland, at home against the Ravens and Rams and at the division rival Giants before getting their second win of the season by man-handling Dallas en route to a convincing 25-3 win on Sunday.
Now, sitting at 2-5, Washington hosts the division rival Giants in Week 9 following its Week 8 bye. Ater getting past the G-Men, I’ve got Washington losing at Detroit and at home against Cincinnati before going into Dallas to beat the Boys for the second time this season.
Washington would be 4-7-1 at that point, but I don’t see them winning again – until 2021 – as they close out the season with losses at Pittsburgh and San Francisco, followed by home losses against Seattle and Carolina and one final road loss at Philly.
Prediction: 4 Wins
The Giants kicked off the season with five straight losses at home against Pittsburgh, at Chicago, at home against the 49ers and at Dallas before getting past Washington 20-19 in Week 6. The G-Men suffered a heartbreaking 22-21 road loss against Philadelphia and now head into Week 8 with only one win.
New York will lose at home against Tampa Bay this coming week and I have them falling to Washington for the second time in Week 9. More losses will come against Philadelphia in Week 10, followed by consecutive road losses at Cincinnati and Seattle in weeks 12 and 13. The Giants then finish up the 2020 season with a pair of home losses against Arizona and Cleveland followed by two season-ending road losses at Baltimore and at home against Dallas. While I’ve got New York going winless from here on in, the more likely scenario is that the Giants win at least one more game, likely over one of their division rivals. No matter how many pairs of rose-colored glasses I put on, I just don’t see the Giants finishing with more than three wins – if that!
Prediction: 2 Wins
*Make note that, if the division winner happens to land right on six wins, the BetUS Sportsbook will grade both sides a winner!!
