The Panthers have opened as 6.5-point favourites ahead of Friday’s division rivalry game against Tampa Bay, which seems right when you factor in just how dangerous Carolina’s offence looked last week.
There’s no shame in losing to the Super Bowl runner-up’s, particularly when your running back peels off a huge 209-yard, two touchdown day. Christian McCaffrey torched a stout Rams defence, and while Cam Newton was far from his best, there’s no reason to back against the Panthers in this one.
Tampa Bay’s season already looks to be off on the wrong foot under new head coach Bruce Arians. Not much of it is his fault though, as quarterback Jameis Winston refuses to make the right decisions, let alone the right reads with the football.
The Bucs quarterback threw three picks during last week’s 31-17 loss to the 49ers. Tampa Bay’s offence is loaded with playmakers, and while they should receive a boost in the form of a healthy Mike Evans, the Total still looks a little generous in this one.
Tampa Bay’s defence wasn’t terrible last week, despite what many think. The Bucs held the Niners to 256 total yards and also forced a pair of turnovers.
Carolina’s defence also performed well, holding the Rams to 186 passing yards and 9/17 on third down. Seven of the last 10-games between these two teams have gone Under the Total, so back the double.
Tip: Carolina Panthers at $1.31
Value Tip: First Try Scorer: Greg Olsen at $13.00
