What are some of the top prop bets available ahead of the Carolina Panthers’ game against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5?

The Carolina Panthers head into Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Bank of America Stadium as 3.0-point favorites after starting the week at +5.5, according to the latest odds from WynnBET. It doesn’t appear likely that Matt Rhule’s men will gamble on the health of Christian McCaffrey despite the running back practicing beforehand, so they’ll just have to cope without him for a second-straight contest.

Carolina needs to get back on track following their disappointing loss at the Dallas Cowboys. Getting one over on an Eagles team that’s lost three-in-a-row is a good place to start.

This game will tell us plenty about the character within the Panthers‘ locker room. One thing’s for sure, if Carolina wants to secure a surprise playoff spot at the end of the campaign, these are the fixtures they need to win.

Looking ahead to the game, we picked out our three best prop bets for the Panthers vs. the Eagles in Week 5.

Sam Darnold – Carolina Panthers QB

  • Under 269.5 yards passing (-115)

Sam Darnold has been on a tear from a statistical standpoint over his first four games. He’s putting up career numbers across the board and early indicators suggest the Panthers were absolutely right to bring him on board from the New York Jets.

Darnold put together another 300-yard passing performance at the Cowboys in Week 4. Although two costly interceptions in the third quarter showed that there are still some things the signal-caller needs to work on to become one of the better players at the position.

That being said, Darnold throwing under 269.5 yards in the face of a solid Eagles secondary might be a solid play. In truth, the Panthers might not need that much from him if Chuba Hubbard can get things going against the league’s worst run defense for yards allowed.
