As the Philadelphia Eagles come off a Super Bowl season, let’s take at Jalen Hurts props for 2023, as well as the QB’s odds to win NFL MVP, and make a few predictions along the way.
The Eagles roared through a 14-3 regular season that earned Philadelphia the top seed in the NFC. Philly then pounded the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers in the NFC playoffs. Hurts’ magical season ended with a 38-35 loss to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 57.
So far in training camp, Hurts reportedly looks better than ever. The Eagles’ team leader finished second in the NFL MVP voting last season to Mahomes. The Chiefs quarterback received 48 of 50 first-place votes and 490 total points. Hurts finished second with one first-place vote and 193 total points. Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen received the other first-place vote.
Hurts’ MVP finish was even more impressive when you consider that he missed two late-season games with a shoulder injury.

Jalen Hurts’ Odds to Win 2023 NFL MVP
Just as Hurts finished second to Mahomes in the Super Bowl last season, the Eagles quarterback trails the Chiefs QB in NFL MVP odds.
Hurts will be focus of NFL observers this season. Can he put together another great season? He came out of virtually nowhere last season to dominate the league. Before Hurts suffered a shoulder injury in Week 15 at Chicago, he was the favorite to win MVP.
Hurts sat out two games, then gingerly returned in Week 18 against the Giants when the Eagles needed a victory to clinch NFC home-field advantage. Hurts was not great against the Giants, but completed 20-of-35 passes for 229 yards and carried the ball nine times for 13 yards. The Eagles won, 22-16.
We predict Hurts again will have an outstanding season. He is only 25 and has the best work ethic on the team. He eats, sleeps, and breathes football. He is more than capable of winning the MVP, one of the most prestigious NFL awards.
Whether he wins the award also depends on the competition. What if Buffalo’s Josh Allen has a career season? What if Mahomes is Mahomes? We predict Hurts will play well enough to put himself in position to win the award.
Prediction: Hurts’ odds are +1100 (BetMGM, BetRivers), the fifth-shortest price after Mahomes, Allen. Joe Burrow, and Justin Herbert. Mahomes is offered at +700 at FanDuel and DraftKings. These days, going against Mahomes isn’t wise. If you’re interested in betting on the MVP winner, take Mahomes.
Jalen Hurts’ Odds for Passing Yards
Hurts was 10th in the NFL last season with 3,701 passing yards (in 15 games). Mahomes was the league leader with 5,250.
BetRivers offers +2500 odds on Hurts to lead the league in passing yards. There are 11 quarterbacks with shorter odds. Avoid this bet. The Eagles like to run the ball and will do so with an improved group of running backs.
The other sportsbooks we surveyed have the Over/Under at fewer yards than Hurts threw for last season.
Prediction: Over 3,560 passing yards (Caesars). This is a good number to take the Over if you believe in Hurts and his talented receiver corps of A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, and Dallas Goedert.
Jalen Hurts’ Touchdown Pass Prop Odds
Stay away from this bet. Once they get deep inside the red zone, the Eagles like to punch the ball in — often on quarterback sneaks.
Caesars offers +100 odds on Over on Hurts TD passes at 22.5. He threw 22 in 15 games last season.
Prediction: Under 22.5 touchdown passes (-120 at Caesars). The Eagles plan to focus more on the run this season and that should give Hurts fewer opportunities for TD passes.
Jalen Hurts’ Rushing Yards Props
BetMGM offers 699.5 for Hurts’ rushing yards total, while Caesars offers 725.5 yards (-115 both ways). Hurts rushed for 760 yards last season and 784 in 2021 — both seasons in only 15 games.
Hurts is going to get his rushing yards. It’s part of an effective Eagles offense. But given that Hurts was injured in each of the last two seasons, look for the Eagles to rely more on newly acquired running backs D’Andre Swift and Rashaad Penny, plus Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott.
Prediction: We like Under 725.5 (Caesars) on Hurts’ rushing yards.
Jalen Hurts’ Interception Odds
Hurts was one of the most careful quarterbacks throwing the football last season. Hurts threw only six interceptions in 460 attempts. Twenty-seven quarterbacks threw more interceptions.
Much of the Eagles’ success last season was because of ball security. Philadelphia was third in the NFL with a plus-8 in turnover differential. San Francisco led the league with a plus-13.
Prediction: Over 8.5 interceptions (-110 BetMGM). Hurts had an exceptional year in protecting the ball last year. That luck doesn’t always hold out.
Additional Jalen Hurts Props & Eagles Bets
AP Offensive Player of the Year: Hurts has the eighth-shortest odds at BetMGM at +2500.
Prediction: Why not, right? He has the talent to win. Might be worth a flyer.
Eagles Season Win Total: Caesars has the Eagles season win total at 11.5 (Over 120, Under -140). The Eagles have the sixth-most difficult strength of schedule.
Prediction: Take the Under. The Eagles had a relatively healthy season last year and that kind of luck tends to run in cycles. The Eagles have a killer stretch from Week 9 to 15 — vs. Dallas, bye week, at Kansas City, vs. Buffalo, vs. San Francisco, at Dallas, at Seattle. Definitely the Under.
Winning the Super Bowl: The Eagles have the shortest odds to win Super Bowl 58 from the NFC, ahead of San Francisco and Dallas. The Eagles’ odds are +800 (BetMGM). Long-range bets, by definition, can be dicey. Football fortunes often are determined by a team’s injury status and keeping the right people healthy. The Chiefs have the shortest odds in the league (+600). Kansas City is a powerhouse on both sides of the ball and a season-long wager on the Chiefs to track and nurture would add some excitement to the season.
