The Panthers are just 3-6 against the spread at home over its last nine games, but holds the head-to-head advantage over the Rams with a 5-1 record against St. Louis. Sunday's game is poised to be a defensive affair as both the Rams and Panthers boast two of the NFL's best pass rushes.
If you're the kind who likes to drop money on sports betting I wouldn't touch this game. The Panthers are simply too inconsistent to be relied on to be the team we know they can be, while St. Louis is an unpredictable team that likes to keep games close. Yes, they've given up a lot of yards and points this season -- but they have a net point differential of -13 in six games, which is just too close for my liking.
