The Carolina Panthers are rolling even without Cam Newton. Currently second in the NFC South, the Panthers will look to extend their winning streak when they play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in London this Sunday. The Bucs are coming off a loss, and must regain their footing right away if they want to keep up with the rest of their division-mates. The Panthers and the Bucs are +350 and +900 to win the division, respectively.

Betting on the Carolina Panthers (3-2)
The Panthers aren’t supposed to be having this much success without Cam Newton, but they are. They have won all of their last three games, all of which with Kyle Allen under center. In Week 5, they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars, 34-27, at home, with Carolina leaning heavily on Christian McCaffrey’s legs. The running back torched the Jags’ defense for 176 rushing yards and two touchdowns, a performance that also showed a lot about how tough the team’s offensive line is. McCaffrey also scored a receiving touchdown, and he’ll be a marked man by the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay’s defense is inconsistent and allows 29.6 points per game — 29th in the NFL overall –, so McCaffrey must be licking his chops at the prospect of dominating on yet another Sunday — this time in a different continent.
The Panthers are 3-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last three games.
Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3)
The Bucs did not capitalize on the momentum they got from their thrashing of the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4, as they absorbed a 31-24 defeat at the hands of the New Orleans Saints last Sunday. Bucs QB Jameis Winston went 15 for 27 for 204 passing yards and two touchdowns, but the passing attack could have done more — like getting Mike Evans more looks. Evans was easily the most disappointing player for the Bucs in that game, as he never got a reception on just three targets.Evans is too talented of a wide receiver to be left out in the dark like that, and while his silence has given way for Chris Godwin to become a legitimate threat downfield, the Bucs are an entirely more dangerous team when Evans is making things happen himself. Godwon had 125 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the loss to the Saints. Carolina’s defense is tough, but once Godwin and Evans are on top of their games, it’ll be hard to stop Tampa Bay’s attack.
The over is 3-0 in the Bucs’ last three games.
The Bucs win, 27-21.
