Bet NFL Future Odds

The Bills pulled off a 16-13 upset in overtime last Sunday as a 9.5-point underdog. Backup quarterback Ryan Fitzgerald replaced starter Trent Edwards (who suffered an injury) and went on to throw for 116 yards and a touchdown in the win. Lee Evans also hauled in four passes for 68 yards and a touchdown.

The Panthers improved to 2-3 on the season with their 28-21 win over the Buccaneers as a 3-point favorite in Week 6. DeAngelo Williams rushed for 152 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries, while Jonathan Stewart rushed for 101 yards and a score on 17 carries.

Oddsmakers from online sports book have made the Panthers 7-point favorites over the Bills on Sunday. The over/under total for this game has been set at 37 points.

Both teams have some momentum coming into this game, although the Panthers still hold some distinct advantages. While Jake Delhomme continues to be brutal and Steve Smith is starting to get frustrated with his role in the offense, Carolina’s running game should take this game over.

Buffalo has been brutal against the run this season, so Williams and Stewart should find plenty of running room to operate. As long as John Fox and his coaching staff don’t get cute with their playcalling, the Panthers should be fine.

While the point spread is a little high for our liking (we don’t like giving up seven points with a very average-to-below-average Panthers team), the Bills will be in unfamiliar territory and a win would get Carolina back into contention at 3-3. The Panthers should cover.

Our NFL Week 7 Free Pick for this matchup is: CAROLINA PANTHERS -7 and OVER 37.
