Our Selection : Everyone and his brother will probably be on the Panthers this Thursday night. We’re not so sure that’s the side to be on in Week 8.
The Panthers are only .500 on the season and 1-2 straight up and against the spread on the road. Two of their wins have been over arguably the two worst teams not named the”Jaguars” in 2013. Their 3rd win was over the Rams who we have pegged in the bottom 10 of the league statistically.
The Buccanners have yet to win a game this season and are 0-3 at home, but they have been within 3 or fewer points in two of the three games.
Glennon will have to have better ball control of course and if he does limit the turnovers we feel that Tampa Bay can at the least get a point spread cover if not the straight up win!
