Seattle at Carolina (-3)
This game has everything! It’s a divisional rivalry that puts last year’s NFC champs against the best team in the NFC this year. Carolina has home field and they have the probable MVP in Cam Newton.
I’m looking at this a little one-sided and keeping it simple:
- Carolina is very good at home (note: they are home)
- Seattle struggled against a good Minnesota defense; Carolina also has a strong defense
- The line is at -3, which essentially puts these teams at even + home field advantage (3 points)
- Cam Newton is not Teddy Bridgewater
Pick: Carolina -3
