Betting market: We’re dealing with a fairly boring spread here, which has been anywhere between Eagles -3.5 and -5 across the market to go along with a near-50/50 bet split (see live data here).

As it stands, it doesn’t appear this game will get out of this dead zone of inconsequential numbers. The over/under has been even more boring: It opened at 45 and … remains at 45. — Mark Gallant

Trends to know: Excessive wind is expected to be a factor at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday (winds between 16-17 mph throughout the game).

Since 2003, when the wind is gusting above 10 mph, the under is 13-5-2 (72.2%), going under the total by 6.3 PPG, according to Bet Labs data.

Since 2013, only three games have closed with better than 10 mph winds and those teams averaged 28.3 points combined in the three contests (most recently the Falcons-Eagles playoff game from last season that finished 15-10). — Evan Abrams

The Panthers are coming off a straight-up and against-the-spread loss against the Redskins last week in Washington.

Since Cam Newton was drafted No. 1 overall in 2011, the Panthers are 24-11-1 ATS (+12 units) when coming off a SU and ATS loss, making Cam the second-most profitable quarterback in that spot behind Andrew Luck (+14 units). — Abrams
