Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
With Carolina QB Teddy Bridgewater likely to play, things are looking up for the 3½-point underdog Panthers. Carolina blanked Detroit last week 20-0, and is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games as an underdog. That stellar stretch includes games this year vs Tampa Bay, Kansas City, and New Orleans. The Panthers have some bite, and with the Vikings likely playing without star WR Adam Thielen (COVID), Carolina has the edge. Minnesota lost 31-28 to Dallas last week, and RB Dalvin Cook can’t carry the whole team on his back. This should be an entertaining game, and it’s probably destined for overtime. The Panthers not only win ATS in Minnesota, but will also take the game straight up. Panthers 37, Vikings 34
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
P.J. Walker played instead of the injured Teddy Bridgewater and he did well but the Carolina Panthers really need Bridgewater and Christian McCaffrey back if they want to remain in the Wild-Card hunt.
Bridgewater will likely play against his former team. McCaffrey won’t. Mike Davis would be McCaffrey’s replacement if he can’t play.
The Panthers average 23 points per game and the total has gone under in six of Carolina’s last nine games when playing on the road against Minnesota.
The Vikings have a potentially huge problem; Adam Thielen is questionable due to COVID-19. He comes from a 123 yards and two touchdowns performance.
Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson have been sensational, but Thielen is Kirk Cousins’ valve.
Minnesota averages 26.4 points per game and the total has gone over in their last six games at home.
Go over (if Thielen plays).
