While the Redskins are in the thick of the NFC wild-card hunt, the Panthers will play for pride for the rest of the season and attempt to play spoiler in Washington on Monday night. After a subpar season so far, Cam Newton will undoubtedly be looking to finish strong and the ‘Skins should give him an excellent opportunity to pad his stats as he has a history — albeit a small one — of dominating them.
- The total has gone OVER in 11 of the Redskins 13 games this season.
- The Redskins are 2-10 SU in their last 12 Monday games.
- The Panthers are 0-6 SU in their last six games on the road against teams with winning records.
Newton has faced the Redskins three times in his career with the Panthers winning and covering the spread in each game. Carolina outscored Washington 98-49 in the games with Newton throwing 7 total TDs with 0 INTs and a 122 QB rating which is his best QB rating vs any team he’s played more than once. He also added 112 yards on the ground and two rushing TDs.
This could be a good time for the teams to meet up, however, as Washington is a hot bet vs teams with losing records, posting an 8-2 ATS record in their last 10 games against teams below .500. Carolina’s biggest issue this season has been falling asleep on defense in road games which has led to a 1-5 SU and 1-4-1 ATS road record this season. Carolina is second to just the 49ers in points allowed on the road, allowing an average of 32.5 points in their six road games, which is 12.5 more points than they’re allowing at home.
The total opened as one of the highest of the week at 51-points and with good reason as OVER is trending for both clubs. Carolina has gone OVER in five of their six road games this season, while Washington has gone OVER the number in each of their six road games. Going back to last season, the Redskins have gone OVER in eight straight at home. This combined with Carolina’s leaky D should lead to lots of points on Monday night.
