Expect the Panthers to once again rely heavily on Christian McCaffrey as they look to cause an upset against the highly-fancied Buccaneers.

Panthers to win has a 8.4% edge against the books
Although the Buccaneers enter this game as firm favorites, the smart Moneyline pick is Carolina. They were decent in Week 1 against the Raiders and according to our data have a massive 8.4 percent edge against the books in this one. Serious value for the Panthers.
u46.5 total points has a 51% probability
It's a tough one to split for the total points market in this game, with our model landing on the under. Both defenses will be eager to step up after disappointing starts to the season and should bring plenty of energy in this one.
Buccaneers -8.5 has a 50% probability
Our predictive analysis thinks it's a line ball on the spread and is recommending Tampa Bay.
🏈 Dimers' take-out
This is a massive week for both teams as it's a long way back from a 0-2 start. Tom Brady is still looking for his first win with the Buccaneers, however, the value in this game is with CMAC and the Panthers.
