Douglas D. Pederson – the D stands for… – was positioned for a classic post-game speech last night that harkened back to the bygone days of… earlier this year… and what we were treated to was his inner Stone Cold Steve Austin. GIMME.

To say I can’t wait for the full video would be like saying
a bear shits in the woods some random neighbor’s dog keeps taking a dump on my sidewalk– it’s an empirically true statement.
If I’m setting odds, I have it at -220 that Pederson dropped his classic We’re not done, YET! somewhere in this speech. All of the feels are rushing back into the my veins, which are now visible in all regions. This feels so familiar*, so safe.
*You know what else feels familiar? Doug Pederson being a betting coach than Sean McVay– he’s beaten him two times now in his own house (temporarily squatted upon by Birds fans) and, you know, he also won the Super Bowl. The media is turning itself inside out to tell you about how the debonair McVay remembers his own plays, while truly inventive offensive coaches like Pederson and Matt Nagy have just put him in his place.

There’s really no way to sugarcoat it, the Eagles have been a bad bet this season. With a 5-9 overall record against the spread, the defending Super Bowl champs have been one of the NFL’s least profitable teams. Think they’ve been tough to root for this season? Try betting on them. The Eagles have disappointed in all situations: both on home and on the road, as a small and big favorite, and even as underdogs,

DraftKings Sportsbook has been live in New Jersey for over three full months now and a lot has changed since launch, including promos and bonuses. Here is the current best DraftKings Sportsbook promo code and full review.
The season of giving is upon us and our partners at DraftKings Sportsbook are spreading the holiday cheer between now and the end of the month by increasing their $200 free bet offer, which they’ve been running pretty much open-ended since their launch on August 6.
To match some of the offers put forth by competitors, DraftKings Sportsbook is now offering a $500 free bet.
Here’s how it works—just use our link to sign up and DraftKings will match your first wager with a free bet up to $500. It works the same way as the previous $200 bet, only, you know, more. Use your matched free bet within 30 days of making your first wager, and you’re good to go. It’s that simple.
Once you’re signed up, be sure to take advantage of all that DraftKings Sportsbook has to offer. There are plenty of deposit options.

Get in on its various NBA, NHL, and NFL pool-style pick’em and ATS contests for sizable cash prizes.
Speaking of betting small to win big, one DraftKings user last week hit a 12-leg parlay, turning $5 into $11,800. Another user picked the correct first period score in 3 NHL games at +1,794 odds to turn $0.20 into $358. And another player used DraftKings’ cash out feature on a 6-leg parlay bet utilizing NBA money lines. After hammering 5 of the bets on his $5 parlay, they cashed out for $1,006. A fairly decent return.
The full review of DraftKings Sportsbook is after the jump, but we thought it was worth calling out the rather sizable bump in deposit bonus they’re now offering to players in New Jersey. Continue Reading
Sixers unveil a new logo or primary mark that is vaguely similar to their old one but with some level of intricate detail that is new or different:
The Phillies, on a Friday afternoon:
Baseball is so bad at marketing itself.
— @PhilliesMCS (@PhilliesMCS) December 7, 2018
My guess is this replaces the canonical blue diamond logo and not the actual P on that hats. I’d think they’d have bigger fanfare for something like that– like at least a Snapchat from the Phanatic on a Wednesday.
Oh my. Shots, they are fired. Not even a Matt Damon reference made to soften the blow as Bill Simmons responds to a report that Brett Brown will rest Joel Embiid tonight.
Here’s the thing: I dumped all over Simmons last year when he insinuated before the season that Markelle Fultz seemed like an immature buffoon, this just months after he unabashedly talked him up as the number one pick in the draft. Chalk that one up to Simmons.
Now he’s coming for Brown.
Whether or not you like Bill Simmons, the Celtics fan-boy, he is genuinely well-connected in the NBA and knows the game as well as any. He is able to cut through the progressive hipster crowd that covers the Association like it’s a hybrid between a TI-83 and their favorite medieval binge-watch and assess the actual dynamic between players, coaches, execs and the media. My guess is his shot at Brown contains both opinion and some inner-circle chitter chatter from league folks.
Is it fair?
I’m not sure this specific charge is warranted, but we’re well into the it’s time to judge Brett Brown period of the process– and the returns are quite mixed. A players’ coach who has done wonders to develop role players, Brown has ably, commendably and likably performed his duties. But. The Sixers certainly have the talent and roster to compete and defeat the best the East has to offer, and yet they continually come up short. His maddening stubbornness in attacking superior defenses, blown leads, and mixed success at best in late-game situations, are all now genuine issues worth considering. No coach is perfect and, quite frankly, we don’t have much of a history watching competitive NBA basketball over the course of 82 games (good teams have bad losses all the time), but there’s a pattern of being outmatched in certain situations, and Brown is the common denominator.
Just how important is tonight’s game for the Eagles as they try to keep their fading playoff hopes alive? According to PlayoffStatus.com, a loss to the Redskins on Monday Night Football would drop their odds of reaching the postseason under 1%. A win, however, would keep the Eagles afloat for at least one more week ahead of their rematch with the Cowboys. The playoff outlook is not as mathematically dire for the 6-5 Redskins, but after a season-ending leg injury to quarterback Alex Smith and two-straight losses, Washington needs a win to keep up with Dallas in the division race.
As of the early afternoon, the Eagles are a 6-point favorite at most sportsbooks. The public likes the underdog Redskins, with only 40% of point-spread bettors backing the Eagles, but 51% of the money is on Philly. That’s up from 46% of the money at 10 a.m. today, so some sharp money has flowed in on the Eagles over the past few hours. In terms of the total, 57% of tickets and 72% of the money is on the over.
So where’s the value? Continue Reading
Perpetual malcontent Odell Beckham Jr., who turned in a frothy five receptions for 85 yards in yet another loss to the Eagles yesterday, found some time to take his Joker shtick to the next level.
He’s known for his love of the unpredictable villain – presumably terrorizing Gotham City and ultimately failing its citizens – and has previously worn Joker cleats and gloves. This year, Nike is doubling down on all of it, designing Beckham yet another pair of his own Joker-inspired cleats:
Apparently that includes some other collateral, first detailed by Nike designer Erin Cochrane (@ec_electriccircus), who posted the cleats photo, last week. Most notable is a self-branded Joker card, which, unfathomably, Beckham was carrying around in his jersey yesterday and doled out to some kid during the game. Investor Jeff just happened to be sitting next to him when it happened. Behold, absurdity:

The Giants lost. Beckham didn’t score a touchdown (I’m guessing this card was destined for an end zone collab). And after the game, he blasted the coaching staff for not getting him the ball more:
“That’s more of a question for coach. Coming in, knowing that they struggled in the secondary, personally I would have loved to attack them. But it wasn’t in our game plan.”
But that didn’t stop him from passing out his calling card, which is apparently good for a 3-8 record. I wonder who the joke is on.
Some late NFL value for you if you like the Eagles to win today and you’re in New Jersey. Not cover. Win.
It is now or never for Philadelphia when they host New York on Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. At 4-6 and fading fast, it’s desperation time for the defending champs as they look to avoid their third-straight home loss and stay alive in the NFC Playoff race. It’s undoubtedly a big game for the Birds, and it just got even bigger for our readers. Thanks to our partnership, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a 3x Profit Boost* on winning bets backing Philly for all remaining divisional games, including this week’s showdown with New York. This one is only available to new users.
FanDuel is offering to double your winnings on a Birds moneyline bet, and this is available to new and current players. They are also offering new users a $500 risk free bet (might not be able to combined with the Eagles bet).
BetStars is straight up offering the Eagles at +300. This is available to anyone, but new users can get a $50 free bet with no deposit.
