Raiders @ Panthers On TV: CBS
This is a tough game to handicap as we see it. It seems to be obvious that the Panthers are the better of these two teams, but there is a real question as to by how much. Oakland isn’t pitching another shutout this time around as it did last week against the Chiefs, but all of a sudden, this defense is playing a lot better ball over the course of the last few weeks. The opportunity is there to pull off the upset, though of course, no one would be surprised if the end result was the same as it was the last time the Raiders came to the mid-Atlantic, a 55-20 loss to the Ravens. The Panthers have won two straight games by huge margins, but just prior to those victories, there was a 27-21 loss to those same Chiefs that Oakland just shut out. We think that this could be a surprising game where anything happens, and if that’s the case, we want the points on our side for sure.
Raiders @ Panthers Pick: Oakland Raiders +8.5
Raiders @ Panthers Score Prediction: Carolina 28 – Oakland 20
