1 unit on Game Total OVER 43 -108 (risk 1 to return 1.93) RESULT: LOSS
Carolina has been impressive on offense in wins over the Jets and Saints. They are #14 in the NFL in total yards and ninth in passing yards behind new QB Sam Darnold and sparkplug Christian McCaffrey. McCaffrey had 30 touches in Week 1 and 29 more in Week 2. The Panthers are 38-16-1 OVER the total on n FieldTurf. The defense has been great, but both games were at home, and in their last 13 road games, Carolina has allowed 28.8 points per game. Houston's revamped defense is still a work in progress, allowing 26 points per game so far, with both going OVER the total. It's part of a 6-0 run OVER in the first month of the season. In addition, NFL road teams like Carolina that come off a win by 10+ points over a division rival are 76-37 OVER the total in the first month of the season. Play this game to go OVER the total.
