Panthers 19, Broncos 15: Prediction
In the event that Darnold is reinstated to the starting lineup, the PANTHERS (+100) at even money is a wise wager.
This season, the Broncos have lost all four of their real road games, finishing 1-3 ATS. The Panthers have a decent 3-3 SU record at home this year, winning both of their most recent games despite being underdogs.
In the negative
If you think Panthers will win, playing Panthers +1.5 (-112) doesn’t make as much sense. Unless you are certain the Broncos will win by exactly one point, take the money line and avoid paying juice.
In this AFC-NFC matchup between two of the lowest scoring teams in the league, the Over/Under bet of UNDER 36.5 (-108) is one that should be taken.
The Panthers only average 286.1 total yards per game, which places them 31st in the NFL, and 18.8 points per game, which places them 25th.
The Broncos are dead bottom in the NFL with just 14.7 PPG on offence, and they have allowed just 17.1 PPG to rank second.
