Today’s Panthers vs. Buccaneers matchup is the first of two 9:30 a.m. ET games this season, and the forecast couldn’t be more stereotypically London.
Rain is likely before kickoff, which then tapers off as the game progresses. But the real story for today’s matchup is the wind. Steady 16-19 mph breezes will be blowing throughout the game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

While Panthers vs. Bucs has attracted its fair share of sharp action, wiseguy activity has been solely affecting the spread to this point.
The current over/under of 46.5 is just a full point lower than where it opened. In fact, this number was still at the opener of 47.5 just 24 hours ago.
According to our Bet Labs data, NFL games played in double-digit winds have finished under the closing total 56.1% of the time since 2003.
In these windy games with temperatures below 60 degrees — today’s forecast expects temps in the high-50s — that win rate improves to 57.1% with an increase in ROI from 8.7% to 10.7%.
At the time of writing, 55% of bets on the total have taken the over, but don’t be surprised to see the majority of wagers flip to the under as more bettors become aware of the Panthers vs. Buccaneers weather forecast.
We’ll update this story as more information becomes available.
