Carolina Panthers 2017 NFL Predictions

Analyzing The Carolina Panthers 2017 NFL Predictions
Panthers (-4.5) at 49ers
Analysis: Make no mistake about it…Carolina Panthers will get their 2017 campaign started off on the right foot by spanking the rebuilding Niners to easily cover the spread as modest 4.5-point road faves.
Pick: Carolina 31 San Francisco 14
Saints at Panthers (-3)
Analysis: I’m thinking this Week 3 NFC South divisional matchup will tell a lot about the Panthers seeing as how they split with the Saints by winning at home against New Orleans by three points and losing on the road against the Saints by three. I smell a push in the making here people.
Pick: Carolina 24 New Orleans 21
Panthers at Patriots (-9)
Analysis: No matter how hard I try to envision a Carolina win in this road contest against Tom Brady and the Patriots, I just don’t see it happening. Still, I like Carolina to cover the spread as near double-digit road dogs.
Pick: New England 27 Carolina 20
Panthers (-1.5) at Bears
Analysis: If the Panthers don’t win this Week 7 mismatch by at least 14 points, I’m going to say the fix was in!
Pick: Carolina 35 Chicago 17
Falcons (-1) at Panthers
Analysis: After getting smacked around by the Falcons twice last season, including their 33-16 beat-down at home, I’ve got to believe the Panthers will at least hold down the fort at home against Atlanta this coming season.
Pick: Carolina 28 Atlanta 24
Buccaneers at Panthers (-3)
Analysis: Again, after suffering a pair of losses to the up-and-coming Buccaneers last season, I’ve got to believe that revenge will be on the minds of the Panthers in what will likely be a huge Week 16 divisional showdown between the longtime division rivals. Cam Newton and Carolina get the home win, but Jameis Winston and the Bucs get the ATS Push.
Pick: Carolina 24 Tampa Bay 21
