How Do NFC South Teams Perform On Thursday Night Football

NFC South Thursday Night Football

Short weeks are not the the Carolina Panthers favorite spot even though they've moved up to a full touchdown-favorite as of Monday morning. 

The Panthers are an ugly 2-7 SU and 1-7-1 ATS on Thursday nights and just 1-4 SU and 0-4-1 ATS in their last five TNF affairs. 

How Do NFC South Teams Perform on TNF

Fading the NFC South when those teams play on Thursday should be in every bettor’s routine as only one squad has a winning record on a short week:

NFC South TeamSU RecordATS RecordOU Record
Falcons6-5 (54.5%)7-4 (63.6%)5-5-1 (50.0%)
Saints5-7 (41.7%)3-7-2 (30.0%)2-9-1 (18.2%)
Panthers2-7 (22.2%)1-7-1 (12.5%)4-5 (44.4%)
Buccaneers1-5 (16.7%)1-5 (16.7%)5-1 (83.3%)

As you can see, the Falcons have been a decent spread bet when featured on Thursdays at 7-4 ATS. Another record that popped out to me from the table is the New Orleans Saints’ O/U record with the OVER only hitting 18.2 percent of the time in 12 games.

That totals record is mainly because of the inflated totals that are frequent in domes at New Orleans and Atlanta and with the game coming on a short week, it typically messes up the offenses.

Panthers Have Owned The Bucs

While it’s easy for me to write off the Panthers due to their TNF record, the fact remains that they’ve owned the Buccaneers since Cam Newton came to Carolina. Since 2011, Carolina is 11-5 SU and 10-6 ATS vs Tampa Bay, with wins in five of the last six games at Bank of America Stadium.

If you isolate this trend to just since the 2013 season, the Panthers are 9-3 SU and 8-4 ATS vs the Buccaneers.

If you take away the matchup specifics and just look at how the Panthers do as 7-point faves at home against any opponent, they’re an outstanding 13-0 SU and 10-2-1 ATS since 2011. Worth noting that three of those games were vs Tampa Bay, and Carolina won and covered each time.

Another glaring trend that Odds Shark has tracked is how the Buccaneers have done on Thursday Night Football and it’s been a train wreck, to say the least. Tampa Bay is 1-5 SU and ATS in six games on a Thursday, with their lone win coming back in 2012 vs the Vikings in Minnesota. What’s also troubling is all but one of those losses were by double digits.
