NFL Free Pick: Take Tampa Bay. According to latest NFL trends, the Panthers are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games in Week 8 and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

The Panthers are clearly the better team but are they worthy of being 6.5-point road favorites in a primetime game? The Buccaneers were competitive with the Falcons last Sunday and rookie quarterback Mike Glennon is seemingly getting more comfortable running the Buccaneers' offense. Even with Doug Martin out, Tampa Bay's defense should be able to keep the team in the game tonight, especially with how inconsistent Cam Newton and Carolina's offense has been this season.
