Bucs-Panthers Pick

NFC South rivals clash in Week 13 when the Carolina Panthers host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 1:00PM ET.

Bet NFL Week 13

The Buccaneers lost in the final seconds in Atlanta, 20-17 as 13-point underdogs in Week 12. The combined score fell under the posted total of 46 points, as Josh Freeman threw for 250 yards with two touchdowns for Tampa Bay and Antonio Bryant had three receptions for 91 yards and a touchdown.

The Panthers lost to the Jets 17-6 as a 4-point underdog in Week 12, while the combined score fell under the posted total of 41.5 points. Jake Delhomme threw for 127 yards and four interceptions, while DeAngelo Williams rushed for 40 yards on 16 carries.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Panthers 5-point favorites over the Bucs in Week 13. The over/under total for this game has been set at 40 points.

The Panthers have several injury concerns coming into this game, none bigger than the one to Delhomme, who is expected to miss the game with a finger injury. Williams is also questionable with an ankle injury, although he’s been listed as questionable before and has played.

Carolina will start the inexperienced Matt Moore on Sunday, which means the Panthers will likely be running the football plenty. Tampa Bay’s run defense is horrid, as it has allowed 160.4 yards per game on the ground this season. Assuming Williams will play, then the Buccaneers won’t have any answer for Carolina’s running game.

Many bettors will think that the Bucs will hang in this game given that Moore is starting. But Delhomme has been so bad this season that Moore might be an improvement. Don’t be scared of the points – the Panthers should cover.

Our free pick prediction for this game is the Panthers –5 and the under 40. The total has gone under in four of Tampa Bay’s last five games when playing on the road against Carolina.

Our NFL Week 13 Free Pick for this matchup is: CAROLINA PANTHERS -5 and UNDER 40.
