Our picks, best bets

Pick against the spread: Buccaneers -11

Listen, I’m a Panthers fan, and I know we don't have a competent offense. There are talks of trading away running back Christian McCaffrey and wide receiver DJ Moore which shows that Carolina has no clue what’s going on. This is a perfect get-right game for Tampa Bay, coming off an embarrassing loss.

Over/under: Under 40

This is a low-point total, but what do you expect? Despite their problems on offense, Carolina has a solid defense, and Tampa Bay’s is one of the best in the league weekly. The Panthers will struggle to move the ball with PJ Walker at quarterback, but I think the Carolina defense keeps the Bucs from scoring more than 30.

Player prop: DJ Moore under 44.5 receiving yards (-115)

This seems like a low total, right? Well, of the six games that Moore has played this season, he only would have hit the over in two of them. Walker will be the starting quarterback, and Moore is coming off a game where he had three receptions for seven yards. I like the under here, even if the wide receiver is trying to put on a show for potential trade partners.
