4* Free Week 8 NFL Betting Prediction: Carolina +3
Two teams coming out of their bye’s take the field in Week 8. This one should be a doozy with two nice looking rookie QB’s going H2H.
The Panthers opened as 3-point home favorites, now they’re dogs as all the early money was on Texas.
I think this is where we see the Panthers get their first win of the season. (They’ve had some bad luck haven’t they?)
This QB battle has my mouth watering though… It pitts the top 2 players and QB’s taken in this most recent 2023 draft, and we’ll get to see with our own eyes a sneak peak at how the NFL looks with two really good young QB’s.
Houston didn’t look good in the passing game in their most recent game vs. New Orleans. I’m not expecting them to suddenly turn things around, and like Carolina as 3-point underdogs.
My model has this one at 36 on the O/U.
The analysis we’ve been running for this game has the Texans and Panthers finishing with a combined 36 points.
With the over/under line sitting at 43, I’m getting a bet down on the under. The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Houston’s last 15 games.
Plus, the total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Panthers last 6 against the Texans.
