Just up the Tobacco Road in Charlotte a very interesting happening will
take place in a Stadium built by Taxpayer bailout money. The Look what
I found Tampa Bay Bucs will tackle the on again, off again
(etc. etc. etc.), 8-3 Carolina Panthers. Oh Boy! Sunday
at 1 is Ballers Time as Steve Smith, Greg Schiano, and a whole cast of
unforgettables battle it outGangsta Stylein a Pumpkin Pie eating, fresh
from the forest, old time Make your move, That was an awful big chicken,
Darlin, TV exposition!
Tampa Bay! Tampa Bay! Wherefore art thou, Tampa Bay?! (reply) Im right up in here; Baby! Holdin my 1st Trifecta ticket of the season! Tampa Bay has turned a three-trick beating Miami, Atlanta, and Detroit and leaving Josh Freeman to play scrimmages on Monday Night Football. Was it a good move for the Bucs getting rid of Freeman? The Bucs are 3-4 without himand 0-4 with himwinning three straight to date! The new QB Mike Glennon is making Schiano and the rest of the Tampa Bay chedda-slicers look like geniuses! The Bucs are playing much better, the team is winning, but it isnt real; the Buccaneers are mostly winning on the ground. True, Glennon has only 1 turnover himself since being handed the keys to the boat with Freeman booted. But Glennon has only averaged 22 passing attempts per game in the last 4. But Tampa Bay is winningand Freeman is feeling just how cold a Minnesota bench can be! Lets look at the Panthers!
Carolina is 8-3 for a very simple reason; they do almost everything better than their opponents. Carolina played Tampa Bay back October 24th and soundly beat the GLENNON led Bucs 31-13. Glennon threw 51 times in that game and that effort cost the Bucs any chance of winning. Since that October 24th game, has peeled off 4 straight wins right at the end of a 7 game win streak. Cam Newton is making ALL the right moves on offense. Wideout Steve Smith has injected style and panache in each Panther game during their current winning streak. Combining Newtons great choices and Smiths flair has resulted in back-to-back beatings upon the New England Patriots and the San Francisco 49ers. But the stifling defense of the Panthers is the HUGE story this year around Charlotte. The defense is 1st in points against in the NFL, 3rd in total yards allowed, 2nd in turnovers, number 3 in rushing yards allowed, and 2nd with both passing TDs allowed and rushing TDs allowed! The Panthers defense is electric, punishing, suffocating, and any other crass ing ending word you wish to use. The Panthers look like the old Steelers with tons of weapons on offense, a conservative play-calling system, and a Leave it to the Defense attitude.

On paperthis game looks like a mismatch. But they dont play football games on paper (unless youre in a Fantasy League?), they play football games on the field. On the fieldthis game looks like a mismatchand it was on October 24th, 2013! The only thing different about this game is—Carolina is the Home Team!
Carolina is 4-1 Against The Spread at home this season. The Panthers are 2-0 ATS playing division opponents. Playing opponents with an under .500 winning percentage, the Panthers are 4-1 ATS. The Bucs are 2-3 ATS when playing on the road in 2013. Tampa Bay is 4-4 ATS when they are an underdog. When playing a divisional opponent, Tampa Bay is 2-2 ATS and, when playing a team with a +.500 winning percentage, the Bucs are a surprising 4-2 ATS! Tampa Bay is 5-5-1 going OVER this season while Carolina is 4-7-0 going OVER in 2013 (must be the defense?).
Heres the choice. Throw the papers away, clean the dishes, take the kids to the park, the Carolina Panthers will put a sinkhole right in the middle of Tampa Bays moving process. This game should be a No Contest Your Honor and the only real enjoymentbesides picking the winner—is, Which Tampa Bay DB will make Steve Smith go off?! Carolina in a breeze game! No more trifecta wagering for the Bucs.
