The New England Patriots opened up as 13.5-point favorites over the Philadelphia Eagles, but the line quickly dropped to 9-points after there were reasonable concerns about tight end Rob Gronkowski's availability for Sunday's game. The line is currently ranging between 9 and 11 points with the Patriots as the favorites.
Tom Brady holds a 41-4 record when favored by 9 or more points at home, with the losses coming against the Jets (2x), Giants, and Cardinals. The availability of wide receiver Danny Amendola will be a crucial factor in determining whether or not the Patriots have the potential to cover the spread.
Curiously, the over/under for total points started at 47.5, but climbed to 49 as oddsmakers are looking for a high scoring affair. 92% of the money is currently placed on the "under" which makes the upward move suspicious. The oddsmaker projection for the score is a Patriots victory of 29-20.
