Betting market: Both of these teams are coming off of ugly losses and with neither playing convincing ball last weekend, the public is opting to bet on the non-Browns team (shocker).
The Panthers are getting 63% of bets at the time of writing and has even seen some sharp action at a PK and -1.5 (see live data here).
However, some sites that have moved the line up to the -2 range for the Panthers have seen buyback on the other side, with pros hitting the Browns. — Mark Gallant
Trends to know: The Panthers have lost and failed to cover in four consecutive games. Teams in this situation have gone 92-78-3 (54%) against in their next game since 2003, per our Bet Labs data.
If the team plays its next game on the road, like the Panthers, they have gone 49-32-1 (61%) ATS — and if that team is favored: 8-1 ATS. — John Ewing
One counter to John’s trend: Carolina has the lost the turnover battle in its past four games and enters this game with a 6-6 record.
Teams that are .500 or better and have lost the turnover battle in four consecutive games, are 1-9 straight up and 2-7-1 ATS since 2012, failing to cover the spread by 7.5 point per game according to our Bet Labs data. — Evan Abrams
