Carolina Panthers v Arizona Cardinals
I remember thinking during the Panthers Seahawks game last week, when the Panthers built that large early lead that at least it would lead to generous odds on the Cards winning this weekend. That seems to be the case. All season I’ve been harping on about how underrated I’ve thought the Cards were, and I’ve heard many people say that they’re backing the Panthers in this one.
I’m on the Cards ML here. Cards +3 is a good bet too if you prefer. That’s effectively saying that a a neutral field this would be a pick’em. But by my numbers the Cards should definitely be favoured. Let’s not forgot that the Cards have the best offensive yards per play and most net yards per passing attempt.
Denver Broncos v New England Patriots
Again I’m on the underdog; Broncos ML. We’ve got another inflated number here as Patriots -3 is effectively saying that if they were at home they’d be -9, when last week at home to Kansas City the Patriots were only -5!
Manning’s been bad, sure, but for me the Broncos are the value pick at these odds.
