Panthers vs. Packers Week 10 Prediction
The 5-3 Panthers will visit the 7-2 Packers, who opened as a 6-point home favorite for the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff on Sunday but are now laying only five points. Should bettors play into the line movement or are the Packers still the better play?
263 Carolina Panthers (+5) at 264 Green Bay Packers (-5); O/U 47.5
4:25 p.m. ET, Sunday, November 10

Carolina Panthers Fantasy Spin
Christian McCaffrey (knee) wasn't listed on the Panthers' final injury report. CMC continues to sport the league's most-consistent and fantasy-friendly workload while providing absolutely ridiculous efficiency. A complete list of NFL players to ever average more PPR per game in a single season than McCaffrey (30.8) in 2019 features 2000 Marshall Faulk (32.9) and 2002 Priest Holmes (31.6). That's it. Continue to treat McCaffrey as fantasy football's No. 1 overall player ahead of Week 10's road matchup against the Packers' run funnel defense.
Green Bay Packers Fantasy Spin
Packers CB Jaire Alexander (groin) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Panthers. CB Kevin King (groin) also isn't near 100% and played limited snaps last week. It's great news for the entire Panthers' passing game, particularly Curtis Samuel. Overall, only Kenny Golladay (23 deep-ball targets) and Mike Evans (19) have more targets thrown 20-plus yards downfield than Samuel (18) through nine weeks (PFF).
NFL Betting Trends
The Panthers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall and are 4-1 against the number in their last five road games as well.
The Packers are just 6-13-1 against the spread in their last 20 games versus conference opponents but are 4-0 ATS in their last four games when facing an opponent with a winning record.
The Panthers have covered the spread in four of the last five meetings between these two teams while the underdog is 9-4-1 against the number in the last 14 meetings. It will be Carolina’s ability to run the ball against this Green Bay defensive line, that has struggled all season versus the run, that will keep the Panthers in this game. McCaffrey is a legitimate MVP candidate and I don’t see how Green Bay will bottle him up for four quarters. I realize the Panthers got crushed on the road two weeks ago in Santa Carla, but the Packers don’t have the 49ers’ defensive line. They won’t cause as many problems for the Panthers’ offense that San Francisco created.
