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.
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.
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%)
