NFL Week 11 Picks: Panthers vs Lions Predictions
Week 11 is here and as we found out early in the Packers vs Seahawks game, this is a tough week. There are certain teams that need to win this week or they may just be on the outside looking in when it comes to the NFL playoffs. We looked over the opening spreads and the latest betting lines and odds with public perception built in and we have our picks. Here is our betting breakdown with the Panthers vs Lions predictions.
Panthers vs Lions Odds
Everyone seems to be giving up on the Lions this year and they may be right. They keep losing and Matthew Stafford keeps getting sacked. This week they are at home against the Carolina Panthers and over 77 percent of the betting action is on the road team. This is interesting because underdogs of more than a field goal getting fewer than 25% of spread bets have gone 229-182-7 (56%) against the spread since 2003. This line opened at (-3.5) and now they are up to (-4.5).
Panthers vs Lions Preview
Can the Lions be trusted? Sure they are at home, but there is more to like about the Panthers in this game. Cam newton is playing well and has at least two touchdown passes in eight straight games. The Panthers still play the Saints twice so they are alive and well in the NFL playoff picture. The Lions know that their season is over and they are already playing out the string in week 11.
Panthers vs Lions predictions
The Lions are 16-35-2 ATS in their last 53 games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game and they are 3-10 ATS against a team with a winning record. The Panthers rebound well after a loss posting a 10-1 ATS record after the last 11 games that they lost. If you waited this long to take the Panthers you missed out on a good number, but they are still the right side to play.
