The red-hot Carolina Panthers are a perfect 5-0 SU in the 2015 NFL campaign and will be looking to make it six straight W’s Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Carolina has also been one of the best bets in the NFL so far, covering in all but one game.
The Eagles, who are currently tied with the New York Giants at 3-3 SU in the weak NFC East, appear to be slowly gelling in the wake of an ugly first month of the season. Philly hasn’t been lighting it up at the betting window when it comes to covering the spread (3-3 ATS), but they have been a fantastic play for UNDER bettors. The UNDER is 5-1 in Philly’s opening six contests.
Panthers quarterback Cam Newton’s name has been thrown around in early MVP talks, and it’s far from a stretch. Newton has 11 total touchdowns (eight throwing and three running) while amassing 1,078 yards through the air and 225 rushing yards in 2015.
