Carolina is historically strong in the month of December

The Carolina Panthers are 15-3 SU and 9-8-1 ATS in their last 18 games played in the month of December. After starting off this December with an ugly 40-7 road loss to Seattle, the Panthers will try to get back to winning at home against the San Diego Chargers.

  • The Panthers are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games at home after winning their most recent home game.
  • San Diego is 10-2 ATS in its last 12 games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in 11 of the Panthers' last 15 games against teams with losing records.

The Panthers are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games against San Diego. Carolina's blowout loss to Seattle was the team's second straight loss, dropping the Panthers' record to 4-8 SU and 3-7-2 ATS on the season. With one more loss, Carolina would lock up its first losing season since 2012.

With the exception of a 38-14 blowout win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2, every one of San Diego's games this season has been decided by eight points or less. The Chargers have been competitive in all 12 of their games, but it hasn't shown up in the win column with a 5-7 SU and 7-5 ATS record in 2016.
