Panthers vs. Packers Week 15 Prediction
The Packers have already clinched the NFC North but the No. 1 seed is still up for grabs for Green Bay, so Aaron Rodgers and Co. need to beat the Panthers on Saturday night at Lambeau Field to stay ahead of the Saints in the NFC. That said, is 8 points too much to lay against a Carolina team that owns a winning ATS record this season?
343 Carolina Panthers (+8) at 344 Green Bay Packers (-8); o/u 51.5

Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is considered doubtful for Week 15 against the Packers. CMC didn't practice Thursday, sealing the deal that he would miss yet another game. His absence means Mike Davis will continue as the team's workhorse back against a Green Bay rush defense that has been exposed a few times this season. Davis will be an RB2 against the Packers with PPR upside.
Green Bay Packers DFS Spin
Aaron Rodgers completed 26-of-33 passes for 290 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers' 31-24, Week 14 win over the Lions. Rodgers ran for a fourth touchdown on the ground, scoring from six yards out in the third quarter. Possibly the front-runner for MVP honors, Rodgers has at least three touchdowns in seven straight games and 11-of-13 contests on the season. His passing scores in this one went to Davante Adams (56 yards), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (14 yards), and Robert Tonyan (four yards), as the MVS one was a perfect back-shoulder throw. Rodgers sports a sterling 39:4 TD:INT mark on the year and gets a juicy Week 15 draw against the Panthers at Lambeau.
Panthers vs. Broncos Betting Prediction
The over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings between these two teams and is 25-11 in Carolina’s last 36 games as a road underdog. The over is also 10-4 in the Panthers’ last 14 games following a loss, is 6-1 in their last seven games played in the month of December and is 4-1 in their last five games overall. On the other side, the over is 4-1 in the Packers’ last five games following a failed cover in their previous contest. There’s more than enough offense on both sides to cash the over for bettors, plus Carolina’s defense isn’t likely to put up much of a fight versus Rodgers, Devante Adams and Aaron Jones.
