Head-to-Head Series History

TAMPA BAY is 2-2 against the spread versus CAROLINA over the last 3 seasons 

CAROLINA is 3-1 straight up against TAMPA BAY over the last 3 seasons 

2 of 4 games in this series have gone OVER THE TOTAL over the last 3 seasons


The Panthers aren’t getting enough respect this season as a legitimate contender. They’re stopping the run and with Jake Delhomme healthy and back under center, their offense is moving the ball well this season. Tampa is a solid team, but what happens when Carolina takes away the run? Can Jeff Garcia make enough plays in the passing game to pull out a win? We’ll gladly take the points and like the Panthers to win straight up. We predict the Panthers over the Bucs 16-13.
