Carolina Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Prediction 9/12/2019
Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers started the year with a loss. Now, in Primetime of Week 2, they want to reverse the adverse situation and turn the page to look optimistically at the future of the season.
Carolina Panthers Sports Betting Analysis
The Panthers lost in their debut against the Rams 27-30 at their home, the Bank of America Stadium. Cam Newton (239 yds, 0 TD, 1 INT) had a difficult start, if Carolina wants to aspire to something, Newton must exponentially improve his production in the field.
Christian McCaffrey, on the other hand, continued his great moment of the previous year (128 yds, 2 TD). The problem for Carolina in the offensive is precisely that McCaffrey gives them so much that they can’t live a snap without him. McCaffrey was also the one that produced the most aerial yards, with 81 yards.
Newton’s health and fitness are a problem at the moment. That harms, therefore, what their receivers can do who in total added 158 yards, that is, 51 yards less than McCaffrey’s totals.
The defense only achieved a capture through James Bradberry, who also achieved the only interception of the game for the Panthers. Defensive end Gerald McCoy and linebacker Luke Kuechly are expected to level up over the weeks. The sooner, the better for them.
The game against Tampa can work for this, raising confidence and level to compete in a very complicated NFC South.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sports Betting Analysis
The Buccaneers are the team that can serve as a judge in this division since the Panthers, Falcons, and Saints are one level below. However, stealing a victory can define how far the aspirations of the other team go.
Tampa lost 17-31 at home to the 49ers. Their quarterback Jameis Winston has not met the expectations of having been the first selection of the Draft. Now, with a new opportunity in 2019, Winston had a nightmare throwing a TD and three interceptions against San Francisco.
Despite having varied weapons, eight different players made receptions for Tampa in the game, none obtained more than 53 aerial yards. The runner, Ronald Jones II was his most productive player with 93 total yards.
OJ Howard and wide receiver Mike Evans must increase their production monumentally. Of course, for this, they need a precise quarterback, which with Winston is no guarantee.
Their defense achieved a capture through linebacker Shaquil Barrett. The star defensive end, Ndamukong Suh, achieved only four total tackles in his debut, is expected to improve as the year progresses and suits his new team.
The only interception of the match was made by cornerback Vernon Hargreaves.
Tampa is in a situation where they must decide their course, whether to fight while being at a disadvantage with their division or letting go of the season concluding and looking for alternatives next year.
Panthers vs. Buccaneers Expert Prediction
The Panthers have more talent in their roster than the Bucs. However, it is a closed match. Both quarterbacks had problems in Week 1 and can be extended to this match. Carolina, however, has McCaffrey who can make a difference.
