1 unit on Philadelphia +3.5 (-115) (risk 1 to return 1.87) RESULT: LOSS
Carolina's come-from-behind win over the Seahawks last week moved the Panthers to 5-0. While that has happened frequently to Seattle this year, this is the first time it happened to them at home this season, blowing a fourth-quarter lead. The fact is, it was the first time Seattle lost a regular season game at home after leading entering the fourth quarter since November of 2011, and just the second time going all the way back to 2006. This is going to be a very difficult and emotional spot for the Panthers after their biggest win of the season to date, and they have to be feeling a little unbeatable and fat and happy. Philadelphia got a bad game out of Sam Bradford vs. the Giants last week. Bradford threw three INTs, normally a death sentence for the win column, but after allowing the Giants to march the field on their first possession, the Eagles shut them out the rest of the way. The Philadelphia offense gets a lot of attention, but it has actually been the defense making the most noise. The Eagles have forced 16 turnovers on the season, and no team has topped 26 points against them through six games, and the last two have combined for a total of 24 points. The Eagles turned the Panthers over a lot last season, and have a 4-1 ATS record in their last five in this series. Grab the points on Philadelphia in what could be a bit of a let-down spot for the Panthers.
