Score: 23 - 24
Point Spread: -3/-110 Carolina
I am not holding last week's seven point performance against the Panthers. Seattle has one of the best defenses in the NFL and it will be a completely different story this weekend against Buffalo. The Panthers defense looked great holding the Seahawks to just 12 points.
The Bill’s defense has been disappointing against the run and the pass. Several new faces from the Patriots torched the Bills secondary to the tune of 273 yards through the air last week. Expect Cam Newton to wreak havoc on Buffalo because of his ability to keep plays alive with his legs. Newton was contained last week against Seattle, but still had five carries for 38 yards.
The combination of Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller may have been effective against the Patriots, but they will not see that same result against Carolina. The Panthers held Marshawn Lynch to just 43 yards on 17 carries, proving there run defense is one of the best in the league. The Panthers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games while the Bills are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
