The Carolina Panthers are on the road for a matchup against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon.
The Panthers are third in the NFC South with a 5-6 record and are coming off a 27-21 home loss against the Washington Football Team. They have missed Sam Darnold, but have seen success without him. Cam Newton went 21-of-27 for 189 yards with two touchdowns.
With Darnold out the Panthers have looked to a dual QB system that features PJ Walker and Cam Newton. PJ Walker is 25 of 44 for 200 yards and an interception while Cam Newton is 24 of 31 for 197 yards with three scores and two scores on the ground.
For the season, the Panthers are 26th in the league in passing offense with an average of 203.2 yards per game through the air and 14th in rushing offense by grinding out 115.5 yards per contest. Carolina is 22nd in the league in scoring offense as they average 20.5 points per game while they are allowing opponents to score 20 points per contest.
The Dolphins are in the middle of a three-game winning streak and are coming off a 24-17 road win over the New York Jets. Tua Tagovailoa finished going 27-of-33 for 273 yards with two touchdowns and a single interception.
This year Tua has been decent when healthy. He is sporting a 58 QBR while completing 68 percent of his passes for 1,471 yards. He has thrown nine touchdowns and six interceptions with 21 rushes for 68 yards and three rushing touchdowns.
Miami is 26th in the league in scoring as they put up 18.3 points per game. The Dolphins are 23rd in defense as they give up an average of 24.5 points a game.
The Panthers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS loss and are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
Although the Dolphins are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall, this is a must win game for the Panthers. The Dolphins have a non-existent run game while the Panthers have Cam and McCaffrey. That should be enough offense to get the win and cover the spread in this one.
