NFL FREE PICK: Take Carolina. The Panthers are coming off a deflating loss to the Falcons in Atlanta last week, but it was a game they should have won. Outside of a fumble that factored into the defeat, Cam Newton played exceptionally well and will continue to be a headache for opposing defenses. On the other side, the Seahawks lack punch in the passing game and the more film defenses have on Russell Wilson, the less effective he has become. Marshawn Lynch will be a problem for Carolina’s brutal run defense, but look for Newton to take over this game. According to latest NFL trends, the Seahawks are 17-37-2 against the spread in their last 56 road games, while the home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between these two teams overall. The Panthers are also 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a straight up loss and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games in Week 5.
