The Denver Broncos lost their 2nd straight game and dropped to 4-8 on the season after being defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs, 22-16, this past Sunday night. Denver was competitive against the Chiefs behind a strong defensive effort and had a chance for a game-winning drive with just over a minute left, however, the Broncos fell short after the Chiefs Tyrann Mathieu picked off Drew Lock for the 2nd time of the game. Denver was outgained by Kansas City by a 447-330 margin and lost the turnover battle by a 2-0 margin in the loss. Leading the way for the Broncos was Melvin Gordon III who had 131 rushing yards on 15 carries.

The Carolina Panthers are coming off their bye week with an overall record of 4-8 after being defeated by the Minnesota Vikings, 28-27, on November 29th. Carolina took a 27-21 lead late on a 21-yard FG by Joey Slye with just 1:51 left in regulation, however, Minnesota was able to drive down the field and pull out the victory on a 10-yd TD receptions by Chad Beebe with just :46 seconds left in the game. Carolina was outgained by Minnesota by a 387-374 margin and won the turnover battle by a 3-1 margin in the loss.

The top receiving threats for the Panthers have been DJ Moore (50 rec, 924 yards, 4 TD), Robby Anderson (75 rec, 912 yards, 2 TD), & Curtis Samuel (54 rec, 517 yards, 3 TD). Leading the way for the Panthers backfield has been Mike Davis (126 att, 504 yards, 3 TD; 52 rec, 369 yards, 2 TD) who has done a nice job filling in for the injured Christian McCaffrey.

Defensively, Carolina is allowing their opponents to average 25.0 ppg on 374.2 total yards per game (259.1 passing yds/g; 115.1 rushing yds/g.

The Broncos are 6-2 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, however, are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The Panthers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall, however, just 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 home games.

Carolina has lost 6 of their last 7 games and just doesn’t have the same offense without Christian McCaffrey in their backfield. Denver has some question marks on the offensive end, however, as I think that they will be able to get the run game going against the Panthers average run-defense and that the defense has another strong performance, I think the play here is to take Denver and the points. Good Luck!
