Philadelphia: 7/4

Dallas: 9/4

New York Giants: 50/1 

Last week, the Eagles were still 3-3 and had 5/4 odds to win the division, followed by Washington's 9/4 odds. They flipped positions after this past weekend when the Eagles lost to the Panthers and Washington beat the Cowboys. 

The interesting thing is, although the Eagles are no longer the favorites to win the division, their Super Bowl odds haven't fallen that much. They've gone from 16/1 to 25/1, but they still have shorter odds than the Panthers (28/1) and Washington (33/1). Carolina has a better record and just beat the Eagles, while Washington has the division lead. 

That has to mean that the Eagles are still considered a dangerous team to go on a run, probably in large part because of Carson Wentz and the experience from winning last year's Super Bowl. But Wentz's MVP odds have fallen drastically, from 25/1 to 66/1. 

At 25/1, the Eagles have the same Super Bowl odds as the Ravens and Packers. 

Topping the list of Super Bowl favorites are the Rams (14/5), Patriots (11/2), Chiefs (6/1), Saints (8/1) and Vikings (12/1). 

The other interesting prop bet that involves the Eagles is about cornerback Patrick Peterson and where he'll be playing after the trade deadline: 

Arizona: 1/2

Philadelphia: 2/1

New Orleans: 3/1

Pittsburgh: 10/1

Tampa Bay: 15/1

It seems that oddsmakers know Howie Roseman is always a decent bet to make a trade.
