Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can’t wait to get back on the field to have something to vent their frustrations on following their bad loss in Week 9. The Carolina Panthers are also coming off a loss, and are looking to avenge their defeat at the hands of the Bucs earlier this season. Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Carolina Panthers Regular Season Week 10 Game on November 15, 2020
Where: Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte
When: Sunday, November 15, 2020, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4.5)
Regular Season Record: 6-3
The Bucs had their lunch stolen from them last Sunday in an embarrassing 38-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints at home. It was the worst loss in Tom Brady’s career, and one he’ll not soon forget. Brady and the Bucs will need to have a short memory, as they look forward to returning to the win column. Although they definitely want to forget the pain of that loss to New Orleans, the Bucs can reminisce about the good times they had when they handed the Panthers a 31-17 beating at home back in Week 2. In that game, Brady went 23-of-35 for 217 passing yards and a touchdown with an interception, while running back Leonard Fournette had his way against Carolina’s run defense with 103 rushing yards and a couple of touchdowns on 12 carries. Mike Evans also had 104 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven receptions. The job on defense should be easier for the Bucs as the team will not be dealing with Christian McCaffrey, who suffered a shoulder injury in Week 9.
The Bucs are 5-3 against the spread in their last eight games away from home.
Betting on the Carolina Panthers (+4.5)
Regular Season Record: 3-6
McCaffrey’s return from a long absence due to injury was not enough for the Panthers to get past the defending Super Bowl champions, as they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium last Sunday, 33-31. As mentioned earlier, the Panthers are not going to have McCaffrey for at least the game against the Buccaneers, but they still have Mike Davis, who had done an admirable job of filling in as Carolina’s lead back while CMC was out before. On the season, Davis has 353 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground to go with 278 receiving yards and two touchdown grabs on 43 receptions. Despite the loss to Kansas City, the Panthers showed they can push elite opponents to the edge. Against the Bucs, they needed better pass protection to avoid what quarterback Teddy Bridgewater went through in the pocket in Week 2, when he was sacked five times for a loss of 27 yards. Even with all those sacks, Bridgewater was able to get DJ Moore and Robby Anderson rack up 120 and 109 receiving yards, respectively, in that game.
The over is 6-3-1 in the Panthers’ last 10 games at home.
The Bucs win, 30-23.
