Spread & Over/Under Predictions for Panthers vs Texans

The Panthers are big favorites on the road this week.

Each week, we at All Panthers will release an article on our thoughts on the spread and the over/under of Carolina Panther games. The star ratings next to the play describe the overall confidence in that particular play.

Star ratings:

1 Star - Not very confident

2 Star - A little confident

3 Star - Fairly confident

4 Star - Very confident

5 Star - Should be a lock to happen

Spread: CAR -7.5

2 Star play on Panthers covering: Even on a short week, I see this being a two-score game. It'll be tight throughout but in the end, the Panthers will pull away and earn their third win of the season. I could see Houston's rushing attack giving the Panthers some trouble but this unit stopped Alvin Kamara in his tracks a week ago. Carolina is the better team, plain and simple. 

Over/Under: 43.5

1 Star play on the under: Despite picking up two wins in the first two weeks, the Panthers' offense hasn't been all that explosive. They're averaging 22.5 points per game and with the offensive line a little beat up, I don't see many points being scored from this group, especially on a short week. Houston rookie QB Davis Mills is going to have a heck of a time moving the ball against this stingy Panthers' defense, so I'll lean with the under here.

My picks for the season:

ATS: 2-0 (100%)

Over/Unders: 2-0 (100%)

Total: 4-0 (100%)
