Panthers vs Lions
Panthers -3½ -110 at pinnacle
Jack’s Free Pick Sunday: Carolina Panthers -3.5
The Carolina Panthers will be highly motivated for a victory Sunday against the Detroit Lions. They were embarrassed on National TV on Thursday last week in a 21-52 road loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are playing as well as any team in the NFL right now. They’ll be looking to show the kind of team they really are this week as that effort was an aberration based on the way the Panthers had played up to that point previously.
The Panthers are still 6-3 on the season and right in the thick of the playoff race. They have everything to play for the rest of the way, and I also like the fact that they have extra time to prepare for the Lions this week. That’s because they did play last Thursday, giving them three more days off than the Lions. That’s a hidden advantage here that I don’t think is being factored into the line.
I went 4-1 in the NFL last week, but my lone loss was on the Lions +7 over the Bears. I thought they would play with a sense of urgency in a must-win game, but they did not, and they were terrible the entire game. They were thoroughly outplayed by the Bears. Now, at 3-6 on the season and three games behind the Bears in the NFC North, I could see the Lions pack it in. They realize they have nothing to play for the rest of the way.
I should have seen it coming with the trade of Golden Tate to the Eagles. Tate was Matthew Stafford’s security blanket, and without him he has looked lost. The Lions have lost three in a row by 14 at home to the Seahawks, by 15 at the Vikings and by 12 at the Bears. If that’s not the sign of a team struggling, then I don’t know what is.
Tate was so important to Stafford because he could get the ball out quickly to him. That helped mask the woeful offensive line in Detroit that simply hasn’t given Stafford any time to throw this season, especially in recent weeks. As a result, this Detroit offense has been held to just 15.0 points per game the last three weeks. It won’t get any easier against a very good Carolina defense this week.
The Panthers look as good as they have offensively maybe ever this season, averaging 26.8 points per game. And their defense is holding opponents to 17 yards per game below their season averages despite facing a brutal schedule of opposing offenses. This Detroit offense will be one of the worst units the Panthers have faced all season, and they should have their way with them.
Christian McCaffrey should have a huge game rushing against a Detroit defense that ranks 28th against the run, giving up 132.7 rushing yards per game and 4.9 per carry. The Lions also rank 31st in passing yards per attempt (8.9) allowed this season. Even Mitchell Trubisky torched them for 348 yards last week through the air. They were without their top corner in Darius Slay in that game, and he could miss this game as well with a knee injury.
Detroit is 2-15 ATS in its last 17 games vs. a team that commits one or fewer turnovers per game in the second half of the season. Ron Rivera is 9-1 ATS off a blowout road loss by 14 points or more as the coach of Carolina. Rivera is 12-2 ATS after allowing 25 or more points in two consecutive games as the coach of the Panthers. Look for an inspired, bounce-back effort from Carolina this week. Bet the Panthers Sunday.

Eagles vs Saints
Eagles +9 -105 at Bovada
Dave’s Sunday Free Play:
1* on Philadelphia Eagles +9
The Key: We are getting a few extra points on the Eagles that we shouldn’t be getting this week. They are good enough to give the Saints a run for their money. The Saints are a big public team right now after winning 8 in a row and covering the spread in 7 straight. Now they’re being asked to lay 9 points to the defending Super Bowl champs. It’s too much. Also helping inflate this line is the fact that the Eagles were upset by the Cowboys last week. Carson Wentz made some bold statements after the game that make me think the Eagles will put their best foot forward this week. The Eagles are 8-0 ATS vs. good rushing defenses that allow 90 or fewer rushing yards per game over the last 3 seasons. The Eagles are 6-0 ATS vs. good passing teams that average at least 7 YPA over the last 2 years. The Eagles have the far superior defense in this matchup, and that should keep them competitive. Take Philadelphia.

Broncos vs Chargers
UNDER 47 -115
1 Unit FREE PLAY on Broncos/Chargers UNDER 47
I like this UNDER in this division rivalry between the Broncos and Chargers Sunday. The Chargers have gotten healthier on defense in recent weeks and it’s starting to show with their play on the field. They have allowed 19 points or fewer in five consecutive games and an average of just 13.2 PPG in those five contests. They should hold the Broncos in check. This is a Denver offense that has scored 23 points or fewer in seven of their last eight games overall. They just aren’t very good on that side of the ball this season. But their defense is still very strong, and they should be able to slow down Philip Rivers and this Los Angeles offense. The Broncos and Chargers have combined for 47 or fewer points in seven consecutive meetings. With a total of 47 Sunday, this is an easy choice. Give me the UNDER.

Titans vs Colts
OVER 48 -120
DMack’s Free Play for Sunday November 18, 2018 is on the Titans/Colts Over
The Titans evidently got hings figured out on their bye week, scoring 28 and 34 points in wins over the Cowboys and Patriots. They won’t face anywhere near that resistance here against a Colt outfit that has won their last three games in shootouts against teams with a combined record of 7-21. Disregard prior history here look at the moment. The Colts are on a 5-1 run tho the over and Luck is playing very well throwing the play. Can’t see Mariota and Co. generating anything less than 30 here with the Colts answering back. 34-30 whoever.
Steelers vs Jaguars
UNDER 48 -110
KEY TEAM TREND OF THE WEEK: The Steelers are 0-19 OU (-9.86 ppg) on the road facing an opponent that is averaging at least 35 passes per game and they are not a four-plus point underdog.
Raiders vs Cardinals
Raiders +4½ -109 at GTBets
Jeff Allen’s Free NFL Play for Sunday is on the Oakland Raiders
Both team play hard but from a talent standpoint, neither team matches up well and both are in tank mode. John Gruden needs a win, any kind of a win to get the pressure off for a couple weeks. He faces a Cardinal team that is 1-4 at home with an 18-15 win in their last against a 49er team that is also bad. Both teams have their moments and this one gets decided by a kick in the final minute. Take the points.
