Three weeks in and the bug is starting to hit the Panthers. Carolina lost Greg Olsen for at least 8 weeks in the Bills game when broke his foot in a non-contact play. Cam Newton nicked his ankle pretty good in that game having to spend a little while in the injury tent before returning to the game. Here's the Panthers injury report following the first practice. We'll keep it updated throughout the week.Read More
If comparisons work, Mike Shula can't get the Carolina Panthers offense to be great again, and his Dad's assistant helped make the case. Thanks to Tom Olivadotti for the inspiration to write this article.Read More
This past week, Tom Brady put up career stats against the Saints with Gronk and a couple of running backs deployed in the passing game. New England only fielded three receivers Sunday, mainly because injuries are dropping them like flies. That didn't stop Brady from carving New Orleans up to the tune of 436 yards in the air.Read More
Panthers Defensive Coordinator, Steve Wilks, addressed the media Monday after the Panthers win over Buffalo. It was a performance that was powered by a defense that is #1 in the league and is the first team since 1981 to allow 3 points or less in each of their first two games. Wilks addressed the team's performance, their early success, and some of the cogs that are making the machine work so wellRead More

The Panthers are 7 point favorites in their home opener against the Buffalo Bills. The over/under is 43. Both teams covered the spread last week. The Bills handled the -6 line over the Jets and the Panthers the -4.5 over the 49ers. Both games went under. I don't expect this week's match being a high scorer either. Both teams like to run the ball and pride themselves with defensive play. The Bills will be especially motivated because of the connections between the two teams, Head Coach Sean McDermott was the Panthers defensive coordinator last season and there are several players that traveled with him and former Panthers Assistant General Manager, now Bills General Manager, Brandon Beane. It wouldn't be surprising for this game to be a defensive affair early, where Carolina pulls ahead after that nostalgic energy subsides among the Buffalo Bills.
Unlike last week where both teams had better friendly lines, 7 points is a big spread for two teams who have such an intimate knowledge of each other and look to win with their defense. I think Carolina covers the seven points, but I don't feel comfortable enough to wager on it. If I was forced to choose, I'd take Carolina giving up the points and the under, however.
This analysis is purely speculation. This should not be considered betting advice in any way. Your wagers are your call.
