Trouble In Philly: Hurts Favored To Take Over Starting Job In 2021

  • Jalen Hurts is favored to be the Eagles starting quarterback in 2021 with -130 odds.
  • Carson Wentz has +150 odds to be traded in the NFL offseason.

PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia Eagles have finally pulled the trigger on Carson Wentz as their starting quarterback and have inserted rookie, Jalen Hurts as their new quarterback.

The transition came in Week 13 of the season during the Eagles game against the Green Bay Packers. Wentz went 6-15 throwing the ball for just 79 yards before the Eagles announced Hurts as the QB for the rest of the game.

Hurts went into the game and had an immediate impact, throwing for 109 yards and a touchdown and also rushing for 29 yards on five attempts. With Hurts now being announced the starter for the rest of the season, online sportsbooks have odds posted for how things will turn out during the Eagles offseason as well as next season.

Who Will Be The Starting QB For the Philadelphia Eagles Next Season?

  • Jalen Hurts -130
  • Carson Wentz -110

Will Carson Wentz Be Traded In The Offseason?

  • Yes +150
  • No -200

Looking at the NFL odds for who will be the starter in the 2021 season, Hurts is clearly the favorite here being that he was just recently named the starter.

Something that Hurts brings to the table that Carson Wentz does not is his dual-threat ability which is the rising trend for starting quarterbacks in today’s league. If Wentz is still with the team by next season, there will certainly be a competition for the starting job but Hurts should come out on top as he offers the Eagles more opportunities on offense.

That being said, NFL bettors could take advantage of Hurts’ odds here.

The Eagles could look to get value for Wentz in the offseason as they do not need to pay him to sit on the bench. However, with his performance, it might be a tough assignment to trade Wentz.

This may lead to the Eagles cutting him from their roster completely which would help bettors cash out on him not being traded but would be a trap for those taking the underdog odds.
