The Carolina Panthers will host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon at the Bank of America Stadium. These teams met last season and the Panthers beat the Cards 34-10 in Arizona but Kyler Murray didn't play.
The Cardinals get here with 1-2 record after losing 12-20 against the Rams. Even though Kyler Murray completed 37 of 58 passes for 314 yards against the Rams on Sunday, the Cardinals were unable to reach the end zone and were forced to settle for four Matt Prater field goals. Murray and WR Marquise Brown, an Oklahoma University teammate, appear to be getting along better as they connected 14 times for 140 yards. Cardinals WR A.J. Green will be out indefinitely with a knee injury, while WR DeAndre Hopkins remains suspended for three more game
The Cardinals defense has struggled so far allowing 29 points per game, 287 passing yahrds and 102 rushing yards.
The Panthers didn't show much and struggled in the first 3 weeks but were able to beat the Saints 22-14 at home. For the Panthers, Christian McCaffrey has two games with at least 100 yards rushing. The 2019 All-Pro is currently tied for fifth in the league in rushing with 243 yards and is looking explosive, especially when he gets in the open field after being limited to 32 yards in the season opener.
Carolina's defense had three turnovers against the Saints after having none in the previous two games. WR Laviska Shenault had two catches for 90 yards, including a 67-yard catch and run for a touchdown, in his Panthers debut against New Orleans.
Arizona are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
Arizona are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games against Carolina.
Arizona are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games against Carolina.
Arizona are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games on the road..
Carolina are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Carolina's last 6 games against Arizona.
Carolina are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games at home.
The Cardinals have been struggling offensively but they will have some key players back for this game as Marquise Brown and Rondale Moore are most likely to play. The Panthers won their last game against the Saints but they haven't showed great offense. Last season the Cardinals lost vs Panthers but Kyler Murray didn't play so I expect them to be better this time against a Carolina team that don't convince me. Take the Cardinals.
