First a bet from outer space, now a $30,000 DraftKings futures bet? It’s apparently a big day for the Birds in the sports betting community. .

DraftKings Sportsbook today reported that a customer placed a $30,000 futures bet on the Eagles to win the NFC East. If it hits the bettor will win $105,000. The Eagles do sit alone on top of the NFC East with only 16 games left to play!

One win and the Eagles are suddenly a big hit with the high rollers and the intergalactic community. If they lose this week to the 49ers do you think we’ll see any other big action on the Birds, or are we in for this the entire year?

What’s next? Are we going to be seeing a press release from the White House reporting a massive bet on the Eagles from President Joe Biden? I’ll be honest, that would play and seems to be entirely in his character.

Either way it’s nice that the Eagles are gaining positive attention from the betting community. The only attention that seemed to come Philadelphia’s way last season had to do with the Carson Wentz drama, so it’s nice some confidence in the Eagles is starting to emerge.

I am confident in this team, but I’m not sure that I’m $30,000 confident. I’ll stick to my usual $20 bets and being apoplectically mad when they never hit.
