Baltimore at Carolina

Saturday 08/29 08:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Carolina -3 (-112) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: loss

3 units on Game Total UNDER 36 -104 (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: win

The Panthers are winless in two games as they have managed just 34 points thus far. I look for them to be focused on a win here as head coach John Fox has a pedigree for winning these preseason games (58% over the past six seasons). He can't be happy with an 0-2 start (with the loss coming by double-digits), and he has won over 70% of the time in game three. I like the Panthers to get it done here at home. I also like the UNDER. The Ravens first unit has been good thus far, having shut out Washington for the game and holding the Jets to just 7 first-half points last week. Look for the intensity to be turned up a notch as the starters get a lot of minutes and seems to be on a mission already this year. Carolina can play defense too as we have seen defensive efforts holding opponents to 3, 7, and 10 points in recent years from John Fox teams. Last year they held their week three opponent to just 3 points. Baltimore is 34-19 UNDER in all preseason games the past 15 years including 18-7 UNDER on the road and 14-4 UNDER coming off an OVER. I like Carolina and the UNDER in this one.
