Las Vegas, Nevada – Following a flurry of late money bet on Philadelphia, Las Vegas sport books currently have the injury riddled Patriots as a slight 56-point favorite over the Eagles during this weekends game.
“The Patriots are banged up right now and coming off of their first loss. We certainly took that into account when we set the line for this game. We think it’s a fair line,” said Caesars Bookmaker Todd Fuhrman.
Without Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Dion Lewis, the game will likely be much closer than anyone could have imagined a few weeks ago, Fuhrman said.
“It’s a testament to the Philadelphia Eagles that many think they can actually keep this to within an eight touchdown game,” said Caesars Bookmaker Todd Fuhrman.
At press time, the line shot up to 63 points after Mark Sanchez told Philadelphia reporters he knew the “keys to beating” the Patriots.
