The Carolina Panthers are coming off a dominant win over the New Orleans Saints. Sam Darnold threw for 305 yards and two touchdowns, and Christian McCaffrey had over 100 yards of combined offense.
Tyrod Taylor will miss the next few weeks with a hamstring injury, and Deshaun Watson is not an option for Houston. This will give Davis Mills, the 67th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the start at quarterback.
With Carolina’s momentum and Houston’s injuries, it’s hard to think Carolina will not cover. 66% of bettors believe the Panthers will deliver in this matchup. The low total also has value at 44 points, so this is a good option in this game.
