The Washington Redskins are in a rare good mood after scoring a win in Week 12. Will they follow that one up with another victory when they take on the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte? Or will the Panthers breathe some life into their dimming playoff chances?

Betting on the Washington Redskins (2-9)
Rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins has finally notched his first win in the pros as a starter when he led the Redskins to a 19-16 victory at home over the Detroit Lions in Week 12. Haskins did not have a particularly glowing game, completing just 13 of 29 passes for 156 yards with zero touchdowns and an interception, but the win must have boosted his confidence, and sometimes, confidence is all a young buck like Haskins needs to take flight. Haskins will look to do better in Week 13 against Carolina’s Swiss cheese defense that has been letting opponents score 26.5 points per game this season. Running backs Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson could also light it up on the ground, as the Panthers have one of the worst run defenses in the NFL. Guice had 32 rushing yards on 10 carries in the Lions game, while Peterson had 27 on 10 attempts.
The under is 7-3 in the Redskins’ last 10 games.
Betting on the Carolina Panthers (5-6)
Carolina can blame their 34-31 loss to the New Orleans Saints on the road last week to kicker Joey Slye, who missed a field goal in the clutch and also botched two of three extra-point attempts. It was a disheartening loss, considering that the Panthers got a fantastic performance from quarterback Kyle Allen, who had 256 passing yards and three touchdowns without an interception on 23-of-36 completions. Allen has been shaky this season, but he should be able to sustain his form against Washington’s defense that usually struggles for form. Do-it-all tailback Christian McCaffrey is arguably the best non-quarterback player in the NFL today, so expect him to rack up plenty of yards against Washington. The Panthers’ pass rush is good enough to put the clamps on Haskins. The Panthers are second in the league with 41 sacks, which doesn’t bode well for the Redskins, who are only 29th in the league with a 9.75 offensive quarterback sack percentage.
The Panthers are 2-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last three home games.
The Panthers win, 23-14.
