Before the season began there were some very high aspirations in both Carolina and Philadelphia, however after 10 games both teams are sitting at the bottom of the NFC, with both coaches on the hot seat. Instead of a Monday night game that many sports gambling fans had circled on their calendar before the season started, this has turned into a “who gives a shit game.”
The Eagles will be without both their running back and quarterback, and will be trying to avoid their 7th loss in a row. This is kind of mind blowing since this team on paper has a lot of talent, and they started the season off 3-1. Now they are in the midst of their longest losing streak since 1994, and the longest losing streak of coach Andy Reid’s tenure, whom will most definitely be done in Philly after this season. On the other side the Panthers have lost 6 of their 8 games by 6 points or fewer, and have actually led in the 4th quarter in 4 of those 6 losses. After such a stellar rookie campaign Cam Newton has suffered the Sophomore jinx only contributing 13 touchdowns on the ground and thru the air, after racking up 35 touchdowns last season.
Even though this game is in Philadelphia, this game is probably going to be more hostile for the home team then the away team. Philly fans have already lost their patience with Andy Reid and this Eagles team, so at the first sign of distress the home crowd is going to come down hard on rookie QB Nick Foles and the lowly Eagles. I would suggest to sports gambling fans to wager on the Panthers to cover the -3 point spread, and to win the game on the money line.
