New England Patriots vs Philadelphia Eagles Odds
The past two meetings of the Patrots and Eagles were memorable for different reasons and won't likely impact the Week 12 point spread.
The Pats beat the Eagles in Super Bowl 39 and two years later barely beat the Eagles as 24-point chalk (during New England's dream 20007 season). On Sunday, the Patriots play on a short week after drubbing the Chiefs and face an underperforming Eagle team that must win to keep its playoff hopes alive.
Watch for the injury status of Jeremy Maclin and Michael Vick during the week and expect the game to remain off the board until there is some clarity.
The Patriots remain a good road bet (7-2 ATS past 9 games) while the Eagles have inexplicably lost 7 of 8 home games.
