Panthers vs. Redskins Week 9 Odds
The Panthers have been dreadful since upsetting the Saints 35-27 in Week 2 of the season. They’ve lost five straight games, including a heartbreaking 23-22 defeat at Chicago last Sunday. After his incredible rookie season, Cam Newton has struggled with turnovers and inconsistent play this year. After some believed Carolina could be a sleeper in the NFC South, the Panthers have dropped six of their first seven games and have sunk to the bottom of the division. While they did cover as an 8.5-point underdog last week, the Panthers are 3-4 against the spread this season.
The Redskins have lost two in a row since beating the Vikings 38-26 in Week 6. After losing 27-23 to the Giants in the closing seconds of Week 7, they were a non-threat last Sunday versus the Steelers in a 27-12 defeat. While they’ve covered the spread in two of their last three games, they failed to cover as a 4.5-point road favorite last week. The Skins are now 3-5 overall and 4-4 against the spread, while the over has covered in five of their first eight games.
