The Carolina Panthers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will meet up in NFL action from London Sunday.
The Panthers come in at 3-2 so far this year. Carolina opened up with a 30-27 loss to the Rams and a 20-14 loss to the Buccaneers before getting wins over the Cardinals 38-20, the Texans 16-10 and the Jaguars 34-27.
In the win over Jacksonville, Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen logged 181 yards and a TD, while Christian McCaffrey had 176 yards and two TDs rushing. DJ Moore was the top receiver there with his 91 yards on six catches.
The Panthers are 1-5 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 1-4 ATS in their last five after posting more than 250 pass yards in their previous game. Carolina is 2-5 ATS in their last seven after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game and the under is 5-1 in their last six versus a team with a losing record.
Meanwhile, the Buccaneers are 0-4 ATS in their last four in Week 6 and 0-5-1 ATS in their last six on turf. Tampa is 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 in October and 3-0-1 ATS in their last four after an ATS loss.
Carolina had to overcome some last-minute penalties in their too-close win over Jacksonville this past Sunday, but the three straight wins are an encouraging sign. Four of the Panthers’ five games have been decided by seven points or fewer.
Tampa has had a few close calls both ways as well this season, but the discouraging trend there is the 103 points given up over their last three games. This is a tough one to call, and being in London makes it even odder. All things considered I’m taking the Panthers to get a little revenge here but staying away.
