Date: Oct. 10, 2016 – Units Risked/Win: 2 / 1.5 – Grade: loss
1H Carolina Panthers -2 (-135)
Cam is out due to concussion. Lots of injuries for both teams. Both defenses struggling. Taking Tampa Bay +7 or the over seems sensible. I mean, it’s Monday Night Football after all. But, this could end up being a low scoring stinker and the TB +7 wins…
Here’s what I am thinking. Carolina comes out roaring at home in the 1st half. Backup QB and all. Tampa Bay seemingly struggles to put up points in the 1st half of games (especially on the road). Carolina typically does not have that problem. Yes, I know Cam is out. But, versus Tampa I don’t think it’ll matter much.
Hypothetical Line = CAROLINA -4 (adjusted due to Cam being out)
