After the Eagles won their sixth straight game Sunday with a 33-10 drubbing of the 49ers and added running back Jay Ajayi before Tuesday's trade deadline, the Birds' Super Bowl odds have hit a season high.
In Bovada's latest odds, which were released Wednesday, the Eagles now have a 6/1 shot to make the Super Bowl, shortened from 7/1 last week. However, the Eagles are still behind the Patriots (7/2) for the top odds in the NFL and are followed closely by the Steelers (7/1), Chiefs (15/2) and Seahawks (10/1).
The Eagles are the front-runner to win the NFC with 5/2 odds and are heavily favored to win the NFC East at 1/10. The Cowboys' divisional odds shortened to 5/1 after their 33-19 victory Sunday over the Redskins, which caused Washington's NFC East odds to drop to 25/1.
Carson Wentz's MVP odds continue to climb as well. After another solid performance Sunday. Bovada now has him just behind Tom Brady (2/1) with a 21/10 shot to win the coveted award.
Wentz is third in the NFL in passing yards with 2,063, behind just Brady and Alex Smith, and is tied with Deshaun Watson for the league lead in touchdowns at 19.

It seems like nobody can get enough of the "Philly Special."
The Eagles ran a similar trick play in a pivotal moment in Week 1; a local high school pulled it off; the Browns appeared to copy the Eagles Thursday night; a creative couple put the play on their wedding cake. It’s everywhere.
You can now add corn mazes to that list.
Sahl’s Father Son Farm in Galloway Township, New Jersey, has designed a corn maze in the shape of the Philly Special. The design is pretty incredible and according to Jeremy Sahl, one of the owners of the farm, it comes with the Eagles’ stamp of approval.
“We were hollering and hopping out of our chairs and jumping around when someone shouted something about putting the Eagles’ Super Bowl win into the corn maze this year,” Sahl said. “I mean, it took some time to finalize the design process, but after corresponding with the Eagles for a while, this is what we ended up with. We’re really proud of it!”
The corn maze is open to visitors starting Sunday.
