Cam Newton will make his first start in his second stint as the Panthers QB against his former Head Coach Ron Rivera, who returns to his former stomping ground with the WFT. Who will leave this homecoming of sorts the happier?
- WFT rank 30th in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game
- Christian McCaffrey has at least 54 receiving yards in 4 of 5 games played this season
Christian McCaffrey, when fit, is Carolina’s best player and arguably the best RB in Football. If the Panthers deploy him properly in the passing game to attack the coverage weakness of the WFT Linebackers, then he should have plenty of YAC opportunities.
Spread: Panthers -3.0
Game Prediction: WFT 27-26 Panthers
Best Bet: Christian McCaffrey over 46.5 receiving yards @ 10/11 with Bet365.
