Monday seemed like a very hopeful day in the sports world. There was a sense of hope in the air. The Eagles were reportedly planning a visit to the White House. Everything seemed good.
But Tuesday is much, much darker. Partly because its raining. But mostly because Vegas is betting against the Eagles visiting the White House before the start of the 2018 NFL season.
In an email from betting service BetDSI Sportsbook, the odds for a meeting between the Super Bowl LII champs and the leader of the free world are not looking good, at least in the near future.
“BetDSI Sportsbook is offering odds on whether or not the Philadelphia Eagles will visit President Trump in accordance to Super Bowl champion tradition,” an email from the betting service reads.
So far, the odds are as follows:
1- Will the Philadelphia Eagles visit the White House before Sept. 6, 2018?
2- Total players on current Eagles roster to skip White House visit
Over 10.5 (-115)
Under 10.5 (-115)
3- Will President Trump rescind White House invitation to Eagles?
Clearly, the most important question here is #1. Its not looking so good that the Eagles are going to pay a visit to the White House before August. That is not good. Not good at all. Weve already had one player say he wont pay a visit to the White House out of a political disagreement with President Trump. And now this? I wont say its time to panic. But I wont say Im feeling too good about it, either.
