Bet on the NFLMonday Night Football this week features the Philadelphia Eagles looking to defeat their NFC East division rival the Washington Redskins, and their former quarterback Donovan McNabb. Monday Night Football kickoff from FedEx Field is set for 8:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN. Sports betting fans should know that the Eagles are coming off its biggest win of the season after beating Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts 26-24 last Sunday. The Eagles owe a lot of their success to the return of the controversial Michael Vick he has demonstrated a high level of talent, a very dynamic quarterback. Even after missing two games with a rib injury, he has thrown for 1,017 yards and seven touchdowns with no interceptions.
As for some football betting stats on Michael Vick, he has also got it done with his feet, gaining 261 yards on 36 carries for an average of 7.3 yards per run.
As for the Redskins, Washington is coming off its bye week which could not have been better timed given the controversy that developed between head coach Mike Shanahan and his starting quarterback in the Redskins 37-25 loss to Detroit the week before. Shanahan decided to sit McNabb for the final two minutes of the game in favor of backup Rex Grossman. Only time will tell the long-term effects of this decision. McNabb tends to be unstable overall, but consider that he has been under constant pressure with a weak offensive line. Betting on football note: Washington is ranked 19th in total offense and 23rd in scoring; averaging 19.4 points per game.
