Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -7.5 +106 at Pinnacle
Carolina opened this line as 7.5-point favorites at home and that is where the NFL odds have stayed as they manhandled the Titans. Washington put up those 47 points on the Saints, who are dead last in the league in yards allowed and fired coordinator Rob Ryan after that game. They'll be hard-pressed to score half those points against the Panthers, who are tenth in the NFL. Meanwhile, Carolina QB Cam Newton is probably second in the MVP conversation behind New England counterpart Tom Brady after throwing for one score and running for another against the Titans, and the Redskins are 21st in the NFL in yards allowed. The Redskins are 30th in the league against the run; the Panthers are third in the NFL running the ball. This matchup will likely decide this game on Sunday as the Panthers have given Newton freedom in their version of the zone-read option, and he has been making good decisions. It might be up to Washington QB Kirk Cousins, who won the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, to put up ore numbers against a tough Carolina defense.
