Panthers vs Bears Betting preview
This game really could go either way. On one hand, you’ve got a Carolina offense that still has all the pieces to cause havoc on the right day but just hasn’t been able to find consistency through the air. On the other, a backup QB in Tyson Bagent, who has turned the ball over 5 times in 2 weeks and now faces the third-ranked defense over the last 3 weeks.
Bryce Young should really have the edge here. He has been fairly hit-or-miss this season, but the Colts game was by far his worst game of the season, but, he was hardly helped out by a team that racked up almost as many penalties as they did points. We should expect a reasonable rebound in week 10.
Panthers vs Bears Betting prediction
The fact that the Carolina Panthers are underdogs in this matchup is a bewildering one. At 3.5 point dogs, you get a field goal and some change in a matchup against a Chicago team that is dealing with some very erratic QB and a myriad of other difficulties.
The Panthers should arguably have more wins than their current total and beating the Texans was a big step forward. They’ve played teams like the Dolphins, Lions, and Vikings this season, and that schedule is a tall order for a rookie QB.
I’d expect the Panthers to win outright here, but I’m happy backing the spread.
Prediction: Panthers +3.5
