Carolina Panthers: The Panthers (2-8 straight-up, 4-6 against the spread) return to the road, where they actually earned their last victory and have covered two straight. Unfortunately, they have lost their last two at home as favorites following a 21-13 win at Washington on Nov. 4. Carolina’s defense has been a major issue during the team’s recent skid, surrendering more than 31 points per game, including 29 in the fourth quarter or later. To make matters worse for the Panthers, they have lost the last three meetings with Philadelphia by a combined score of 95-42, failing to cover each of them. The “over” is 3-1 in their last four games and has cashed in the past two meetings with the Eagles.
Philadelphia Eagles: The only team in the NFL that might be more of a mess than Carolina right now is Philadelphia (3-7 SU, 1-8-1 ATS). The Eagles are battling through a six-game losing streak and have burned money for their backers in all but two games this year. Injured quarterback Michael Vick (concussion) is out with rookie Nick Foles taking over under center while running back LeSean McCoy may join him on the sidelines if he is not cleared to play before Monday night (click to check updated NFL injury report). Coach Andy Reid is all but gone after the season, making this an extremely hard team to bet on down the stretch. Philly’s last three home games have gone “over” the total.
