The Week 15 Monday Night Football game features the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles traveling to Washington to face the Seattle Seahawks, who are in third place in the NFC West. Seattle heads into this game with six straight wins against the Eagles. The last time Philadelphia downed the Seahawks was in 2008 when they beat them 26-7.

The Seattle Seahawks (6-6) opened the 2023 NFL season with a record of 3-1. Things have gone poorly for the team since then. They are 3-5 since and have losses in their past three outings, most recently losing to the Cowboys 41-35.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Seattle Seahawks betting picks
Philadelphia Eagles betting breakdown
The Philadelphia Eagles‘ run of finding ways to win games they maybe shouldn’t have won came to an abrupt end in Week 13 when the San Francisco 49ers put a 42-19 beating on Philly. One reason the Eagles struggled against San Francisco was the team’s pass defense, which gave up 310 yards to Brock Purdy and the 49ers. Deebo Samuels had 116 of those yards. Samuels picked up that yardage on four catches. The defense held the 49ers off for the first quarter but then allowed the 49ers to score on their next six possessions. Philly brought in Shaq Leonard not long after the loss.
It’s hard to tell how Philly will react to the loss to the 49ers, but the blowout loss had to have led to some tough conversations among the team and coaches following that game. The San Francisco loss could be a turning point for the club. The thing about that is we don’t know if it will be a positive or negative.
Seattle Seahawks betting breakdown
The Seattle Seahawks have a demanding schedule. Between weeks 12 and 15, they face the San Francisco 49ers twice, the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles. They lost their first game to the 49ers 31-13 and then dropped the game to Dallas 41-35. Things will not get much better for Seattle over week 14 and 15.
There was a positive in the Cowboys’ loss: quarterback Geno Smith was much faster at getting the ball out of his hands. The result of that improvement was zero sacks, 334 yards passing, and the club went 9-for-14 on third down conversions. Whatever adjustments the team and Smith made ahead of the Cowboys matchup must continue because the Seahawks’ running game can’t be counted on. They are near the bottom of the league in that category at 93.8 yards per game.
Best bets for NFL Week 15: Philadelphia Eagles vs. Seattle Seahawks
If Geno Smith can repeat his performance from the Cowboys’ game against the Eagles, the Seahawks have a chance to win this game. However, that supposes Philadelphia will also look like the team that lost to the 49ers. Don’t count on seeing that type of performance from the Eagles on Monday night in Week 15. The betting pick is for the Eagles to beat the Seahawks.
