Carolina at Detroit
Sunday 10/08 01:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Game Total OVER 42.5 -105 (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: WIN
The Panthers opened up the offense last week at New England, and came away with a 33-30 victory in Foxboro, which is never an easy place to win. The Panthers set season highs in points, rushing yards, and passing yards. The Lions probably didn't deserve to win last week as Minnesota turned the ball over three times, and completely shut down an above average Detroit offense in a 14-7 defensive struggle. Despite the lack of offense last week, Detroit is still averaging 25 points per game, and should find the scoreboard at home more frequently this week. Carolina has allowed 30+ points in consecutive weeks against good offenses, and Detroit is certainly a good offense. In his last 29 home starts as a favorite has led Matthew Stafford to an average of 26.3 ppg so last week was certainly an outlier, and has held the total down for this one. Make the play on the OVER.
