Professionals betting Eagles as 3-point underdogs against Panthers

In a matchup of 4-1 teams, the Carolina Panthers are 3-point home favorites over the Philadelphia Eagles on “Thursday Night Football.”

The Panthers opened as 3-point favorites, and the line moved to 3½ before settling at 3 at Las Vegas sports books.

“Sharp money has been on the ’dog,” William Hill sports book director Nick Bogdanovich said. “We won’t need any one major in this game. It’s good two-way action.”

Both teams are 3-2 against the spread and 3-2 over-under this season.

After a slow start, Carolina quarterback Cam Newton has found his MVP form the past two weeks in wins at New England and Detroit, completing 48 of 62 passes for 671 yards and six touchdowns, with a rushing TD and one interception.

“He looks like he’s still got life, and he’s got more weapons this year. That should help him out,” Bogdanovich said.

Eagles second-year quarterback Carson Wentz continues to impress, going 21-for-30 for 304 yards and a career-high four TD passes in Sunday’s 34-7 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

“I’m a big fan of Carson Wentz,” Bogdanovich said. “I like the coach (Doug Pederson) and the quarterback. That’s a good combination. It sort of worked out in New England.”

Philadelphia has covered six of its past eight games overall. Carolina is 2-6 ATS in its past eight Thursday games and 12-5 ATS in its past 17 games in October.

The over is 13-3 in the Eagles’ past 16 road games.
