Why Bet The Buffalo Bills To Beat The Panthers
First-year Bills coach Sean McDermott trying to avoid his first loss in his new job, he has lots of familiarity with the opponent. McDermott spent the past six seasons as Carolina’s defensive coordinator.
“The problem is, I’m not out there playing,” McDermott said, referring to his knowledge of the Panthers’ personnel.
The Bills started the season off strong. QB Tyrod Taylor threw for two touchdowns and LeSean McCoy gaining 110 rushing yards on 22 carries. But that was against a porous Jets defense.
Why Bet The Carolina Panthers To Beat The Bills
The Panthers started the season off with a bang beating the 49ers 23-3. Carolina held San Francisco to 51.0 rushing yards, and they intend to do the same against Bills.
“We did a good job of spreading the football,” Rivera said. “I would like to see more mixtures of the receiver combinations.”
The biggest addition for the Panthers since McDermotts departure is first round pick Christian McCaffrey. So the familiarity angle ends with McCaffrey, whose role could be expanded each time he heads to the field.
If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On:
- Bills are 0-5 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
- Panthers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in Week 2.
Bills vs. Panthers Week 2 Betting Analysis:
Knowing the team you are facing is a big deal in the NFL. McDermott knows the Panthers like no other. I like the Bills to cover the spread but the Panthers bet their second win of the season.
