Why Carolina Panthers are a good bet at -4?

Panthers at Lions Final NFL Betting Analysis

Most believe the Panthers bounce back from the horrible loss they suffered in Week 10. That might not happen, though, because the loss was so devastating it might take another week for Carolina to bounce back.

Detroit’s not a great football team. They’ve got a significant advantage in this matchup, though. Lions head coach Matt Patricia made the right adjustments during halftime in the loss to Chicago. He’s a great strategist who should find a way to contain McCaffrey and Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton.

The Lions might not win, but they should cover.
