Tampa Bay is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games. The under is 5-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 6 games. Carolina is 7-21-1 ATS in their last 29 home games and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 October games. The under is 4-1 in Carolina’s last 5 games. The over is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.
Carolina is starting their third string quarterback and has lost three straight games by double-digits. Tampa Bay has lost three of their last four games, including a very disappointing loss against the Steelers last week. I am taking the under in this game.
