After a train wreck of a start to their season, the Carolina Panthers appeared to have made some adjustments during their bye week as they’ve since rattled off two consecutive outright wins. As a result of that poor start, they find themselves in a hole in the NFC South, so they won’t be able to take their foot off the gas this weekend with the Chiefs in town. They opened as a three-point favorite, which is a spot they’ve thrived in, as they’ve gone 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games as a home favorite.
- The total has gone OVER in eight of the Panthers’ last 11 games at home.
- The Panthers are 6-1 SU and ATS in their last seven games at home against teams with winning records.
- The Chiefs are 1-5 ATS in their last six games after a win.
As good as Carolina has been as a road favorite, KC has been as bad as a road underdog as they’ve gone just 1-6 SU and ATS in their last six games as road dogs. Despite that garbage road dog record, they lead the NFL in turnover differential this season at +13 and have been one of the best teams in football over the last calendar year, posting a 17-3 SU record since October 25 of last season.
The game opened with a total of 44.5 and the Chiefs are currently on a run that’s seen them go UNDER in four straight games and in six of their last seven. Carolina has been up and down offensively this season, scoring 30 points or more four times, but 14 or less three times.
