Panthers vs Bucs NFL Betting Odds

Thursday night football brings us an NFC South matchup between the Carolina Panthers (3-3 ATS) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-5 ATS).

Current Line

Carolina (-6.5, 40.5)

Opening Line (-7, 40.5)

The Buccaneers try to win their first game of the season without top RB Doug Martin (labrum) when they host the red-hot Panthers on Thursday night.  Carolina has played turnover-free football in its past two games, winning both contests by a combined 65 to 25 score.

The Bucs are now 1-11 SU (2-9-1 ATS) in their past 12 games, but actually swept the Panthers last year by outrushing them 297 to 107 yards.  The Panthers have won three of four and a victory Thursday would give them them a winning record, something that hasn’t occurred since the end of the 2008 season. Tampa Bay posted a pair of six-point wins over Carolina last season.

TRENDS:

* Favorite is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 meetings.
* Over is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
* Over is 7-2 in the last nine meetings in Tampa Bay.
