Week 12 NFL odds: Panthers vs. Eagles

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Philadelphia Eagles opened as 2 1/2-point-underdogs against the Carolina Panthers.

The Philadelphia Eagles, losers of six straight, open as a 2.5-point underdog against the Carolina Panthers. With quarterback Michael Vick's and running back LeSean McCoy's statuses in question after suffering concussions, the Eagles aren't sure if they will have either of their top offensive weapons on Monday night.

The status of both Vick and McCoy will likely alter the line as they would increase the Eagles' chances of victory if active.

The Eagles (3-7) are an NFL worst 2-8 against the spread. Last week they lost to the Redskins 31-6 and did not cover the 3.5-point spread, their fifth straight week failing to cover. Philadelphia has struggled in the turnover battle all season, with a -14 turnover differential, and lost that battle to the Redskins last week, giving the ball away three times and forcing zero turnovers.

The Panthers (2-8) have not fared much better with a 4-6 record against the spread. Last week Carolina did not cover as a one-point favorite, losing to the Buccaneers 27-21 in overtime.

The total for the game opened at 41. The Eagles average 16.2 points per game, second worst in the NFL; Carolina averages 18.4 points per game.
