Carolina Has Enjoyed Recent Success as a Small Favorite

The Carolina Panthers are 14-4 SU and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games as a favorite of four points or less. The Panthers will try to get the job done as a small road favorite on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

Shark Bites

  • The Panthers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games against the Rams.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Panthers' last five games against the Rams.

Carolina came out of its bye week and picked up a much-needed win last Sunday, snapping an 0-4 SU and ATS losing streak with a 30-20 victory over Arizona. In six starts through Carolina's first seven games, Cam Newton has a completion percentage of 57% and a passer rating of 80.7, which are both currently the lowest of the reigning MVP's career.

The Rams returned from London and headed into their bye week with a 3-4 SU and ATS record after going 0-3 SU and ATS over their last three games. Los Angeles is 4-1 SU and ATS in its last five home games against teams with losing records.

Despite throwing four interceptions in the 17-10 loss to the New York Giants, Case Keenum remains the starter for the Rams. Keenum's 10 interceptions trail only Ryan Fitzpatrick's 11 for worst in the NFL.
