load balancing two equal WAN links

Hello

 

I have a single gig WAN link to our back up Data Center. The WAN routers peer with BGP. The WAN routers distribute route to a Layer 3 switch running EIGRP. I am getting a second gig WAN link from another provider for increased Bandwidth and redundancy. Now I would would like to use the EIGRP equal cost load balancing to distribute between both links. But the Traffic is encrypted and has the same source and destination IP always. IS using per-packet round robin my only choice or can anyone think of another way to do this?

The second proposed link is show below.. I can add additional routers if needed. And remember the source and destination IP's and port don't change.
