The Carolina Panthers are hoping Greg Olsen can get up to speed in Week 7 and give Cam Newton another offensive weapon.

The Panthers and Eagles have let the feathers fly in their previous three meetings – and with plenty at stake for both clubs entering Week 7, you can expect a similar result as Carolina visits Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon. The defending champion Eagles are coming off perhaps their best game of the season, a 34-13 drubbing of the host New York Giants. The Panthers are looking to bounce back after dropping a 23-17 decision in Washington.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Can the Eagles go back to being a strong cover option? That’s the question on bettors’ minds heading into Sunday, with Philadelphia having gone 1-4 ATS in their previous five games. Philadelphia is a sensational 14-6 ATS in its last 20 contests against NFC opponents, and have covered in 10 of 13 games following a successful cover. Carolina has covered five straight times following a straight-up loss, but is just 1-4 ATS in its previous five road games.

From a totals perspective, there might be some value here with the number sitting at 45. These teams have combined for more than 50 points in each of their past three encounters in Philly, with the Eagles cruising to a 45-21 win over Carolina in their most recent meeting back in 2014. They’ve also gone above the total in five of their past six encounters overall. But bettors beware: The Eagles have gone under in seven of their last eight home games.

Carolina Panthers

The Panthers’ offence is humming, even if the results didn’t manifest in points last time out. The Panthers outgained Washington 350-288 – its fourth consecutive game with 350+ yards – but turned the ball over three times and couldn’t recover. And the Carolina attack could receive a boost with tight end Greg Olsen one more week removed from his early-season foot injury. Olsen saw limited action in his Week 6 return, catching four passes for 48 yards.

Philadelphia Eagles

Sunday marks an intriguing situation for an Eagles team facing a Carolina defence that ranks right around league average in both run and pass defence. You can expect Philadelphia to look to attack the Panthers through the air, primarily because their running back depth has been compromised with the season-ending injury to Jay Ajayi. Carson Wentz should be equal to the challenge, having thrown for seven TDs without an interception over his past three games.
