Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Eagles are 4.5-point favorites to beat the Panthers. The total, meanwhile, sits at 45 points. As of this writing, 52% of the public betting tickets are on the Eagles to cover the point spread.
Greg Olsen (foot) remained limited at Thursday's practice. Panthers coach Ron Rivera recently said the team would manage Olsen's practice reps all season. The veteran played 98 percent of Carolina's offensive snaps in last week's loss to Washington. Olsen is RotoPat's No. 8 tight end for Week 7 against the Eagles.
Carson Wentz (back) was upgraded to full practice on Thursday. Wentz was limited by a back injury to start the week but returned to full participation only a day later. He'll be in the QB1 discussion Sunday against Carolina.
