Kansas City at Carolina

Sunday 08/17 08:00 PM Eastern

1.5 units on Carolina -3 (-120) (risk 1.5 to return 2.75)  RESULT: WIN

Kansas City got a win at home last week, but their offseason was not good, losing more good players than they added. And the defense allowed conservative Cincinnati to score 39 points and pile up 180 yards rushing (5.6 yards per carry). The KC offense had three turnovers, including two interceptions. Andy Reid has a losing record in week two of preseason, including a loss at home in week two a year ago at home, scoring just 13 points. Now they have a long road trip to Carolina. The Panthers are off a home loss to Buffalo, so this is their second straight home contest. And coach Ron Rivera has been working the players hard in practice this week, demanding intensity, which makes this a great situational spot for the home team. Back the home team.
