Why Bet The Carolina Panthers To Beat The Lions
Last week, the Panthers offense showed us a glimpse of what they can do when they get hot. They put 444 total yards and 33 points on the Patriots while stealing a game on the road.
When QB Cam Newton gets into a rhythm, he’s almost unstoppable. He completed 22 of 29 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns against New England. Newton added 44 rushing yards and a ground touchdown.
Newton completed four passes to WR Kelvin Benjamin who recorded 104 yards. He also clicked with WR Devin Funchess, who posted 70 yards and two touchdowns.
Why Bet The Detroit Lions To Beat The Panthers
The Detroit Lions’ defense has performed past expectations, allowing just 17.5 points per game. That is good enough for 4th best in the NFL.
Turnovers have been a major factor in Detroit’s quick start. It leads the league with a plus-9 in that category. The Lions’ 11 takeaways are tied for the league lead.
Both teams are tied for fourth in fewest points allowed at 17.5 per game.
Panthers QB Cam Newton seems to be back in mid-season formt. Newton has thrown five interceptions in
Panthers Vs. Lions Week 5 Betting Analysis:
These two teams haven’t met since 2014, a 24-7 Carolina victory. Newton passed for 281 yards in that victory but only rushed four times for 19 yards.
It’s likely that the Lions will see Newton using his mobility more often on Sunday, but I am betting that Detroit will win this one at home.
