Carolina Panthers at Green Bay Packers (-7)

Carolina enters their second straight game as a touchdown underdog on the road after their scintillating tie in Cincinnati one week prior. After Green Bay’s scare in Miami, they return home to Lambeau Field, where they are 2-0 this season with an average margin of victory of nearly 20 points.

The Panthers have yet to return to their 2013 form, and the defense that led them to a 12-4 record one year prior has yet to show up this season. The fact that Carolina is 3-2-1 (writing three numbers for a record is disgusting and will be an annoyance for the rest of the season) despite the ninth-worst defense in points allowed is actually surprising. In fact, they should have left Cincinnati with a loss. The Panthers escaped by a fortunate field goal miss.

No such luck will be present in Green Bay on Sunday. The Packers win by ten and cover the spread.
