Carolina at Arizona
Sunday 10/06 04:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Game Total OVER 41 -110 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: LOSS
This season the Carolina Panthers have scored more points in each week than they did the previous week. They put up 38 against the Giants in their last game before their bye a week ago. Last week Arizona threw up an offensive stinker, and in terms of coach Bruce Arians, it took just one word to some it up: "putrid." There is no doubt that Arizona's focus all week has been on offense. Carolina has gotten a lot out of the ground game with DeAngelo Williams and Cam Newton, and Williams is no stranger to success against Arizona where he has rambled for 417 yards in four games, topping the 100-yard mark three times. Newton likes to look downfield, and if the Panthers continue to have success on the ground they are going to steal a few long ones. The Panthers have been 16-5-2 to the OVER in their last 23 games following a game in which they generated more than 350 yards. Since Ron Rivera took over, he's followed up every single UNDER game with an OVER game (6-0). The Cardinals have gone 41-17 to the OVER in their last 58 when following a game where they scored less than 15 points. This one goes OVER the total.
