The Carolina Panthers have lost seven of their past eight games and now get a date with the 10-3 Green Bay Packers at Lambeau on a short week.
Green Bay is an 8.5-point favorite (click here for the latest NFL odds) against Carolina on Saturday night, so should bettors count on a Packers double-digit victory? Or is a contrarian Panthers play the smart play here?
Our NFL PRO Report provides a clear answer.
