Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots Week 2 NFL Preseason Odds

Filed under: NFL Betting Odds |

Two teams considered to be favorites to win the Super Bowl this season matchup in week 2 of the 2012 NFL preseason. The Philadelphia Eagles will visit the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football.

Both Philadelphia and New England squeaked out one-point victories in the first week of the preseason.

For the Patriots, it was a low-scoring affair in a 7-6 victory over the New Orleans Saints. Quarterback Tom Brady was only in the game for a few series, completing 4 of 7 passes for 30 yards. But he is expected to play through the first quarter in this match up with Philadelphia on Monday night.

The Eagles defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-23 last Thursday. But there was a bit of a scare when quarterback Michael Vick hit one of the helmets of his offensive lineman on his follow through, bruising his hand. He is expected to be just fine. Vick threw just four passes on the night, completing three.

Oddsmakers have jumped on this Monday Night Football preseason match up.

Eagles vs Patriots Week 2 Preseason Betting Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook have set this match up as a pick em’ on the spread. That is essentially picking the game as if it were a money line, with no point spread involved. The team that wins the game will cover the point spread.

Make no mistake about it, big expectations are set down for both of these teams in 2012. New England came up just short of a Super Bowl win last season, dropping to the New York Giants. The Giants are also in the Eagles division, but it’s Philadelphia that has been pegged as the betting favorite in the NFC East this season. So we can obviously see how oddsmakers perceive this Philadelphia team over the defending Super Bowl champions.

The Patriots and Eagles match up at 8pm ET on Monday night, with the ESPN Monday Night Football crew picking up the coverage. This line, and the rest of the betting odds for Week 2 of the NFL preseason are available below.
