  • Carolina Panthers Moneyline: +137
  • Buffalo Bills Moneyline: -157
  • Over/Under: 34
  • Kickoff: Aug. 9, 2018 — 7 p.m. ET

Carolina Panthers

The Panthers have handed the offense to 66-year-old offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who hasn’t led a top-15 unit in yards or points since 2011. It remains to be seen how Norv and his son Scott (the quarterbacks coach) will attempt to build a system around quarterback Cam Newton’s dual-threat abilities and the receiving skills of running back Christian McCaffrey, wide receivers Devin Funchess and D.J. Moore and tight end Greg Olsen. Newton is the No. 2 overall quarterback in The Action Network QB Rankings.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills have the least popular “over” win total in the league despite coming off their first playoff appearance in 17 years. They’re entangled in a three-way quarterback competition featuring former Bengals backup A.J. McCarron, incumbent backup Nathan Peterman and much-maligned No. 7 overall pick Josh Allen. Coach Sean McDermott indicated that the veterans will see time with the first team Thursday, so Allen and his howitzer of a right arm should get lots of playing time and opportunities to throw incompletions. The Bills opened as a -1 favorite but have since moved to -3 behind the backing of 54% of the public (per our NFL Live Odds page).
