Arizona at Carolina

Sunday 01/24 06:40 PM Eastern

1.5 units on Game Total OVER 47.5 -103 (risk 1.5 to return 2.96)  RESULT: WIN

The Carolina Panthers offense has been clicking all season. The Panthers scored 27 points or more in all but one of its last 15 games. That is just the beginning of things. Looking at this team from week 11 out and you see that they scored 31 points or more in every win to average 37.6 points per game in their seven wins. Last week before taking the second half off, the Panthers put 31 points on a Seattle defense that had been shutting everyone down. The Cardinals are certainly in the same league, as they managed to put up 30.3 ppg through their 17 games to date this season. Arizona reached the 40-point mark four different times, and 38 or more six times. It wasn't just bad teams they piled the points up on either, as they hit Seattle for 39, Cincinnati for 34, and Green Bay for 38. The Cardinals also gave up a bunch when they faced a team that was better than .500 at the time of the game, allowing 23.3 ppg to those teams. The Panthers certainly yielded their share to these teams as well, as they allowed 26.5 ppg on the season when facing a team that was better than .500 at the time of the game. Dating back to last season, Carolina is a perfect 8-0 to the OVER vs. winning teams. This season when facing a good passing teams like Arizona (teams that average 7+ yards per pass attempt), the Panthers are 7-0 to the OVER. Under Ron Rivera, they are 18-6 OVER vs. winning teams and 10-2 OVER vs. good offensive teams like the Cards (teams averaging 27+ points per game). The NFC title game should go OVER the total.
