One team's feast can be an entire division's famine.

Carolina at 6-7 SU and 5-8 ATS and Tampa Bay at 5-8 SU and 5-7-1 ATS have also let their bettors down in 2018; the Panthers have found their way into this discussion with an 0-5 SU and ATS record over their last five games.
The Chicago Bears are trending in the other direction thanks to a 6-1 SU and ATS record over their last seven games.
