We have seen some real parity in the NFL this season, which is great for fans who love to see a playoff race that goes all the way to the final week of the season. Both of these teams come into Week 12 sitting below the playoff line, and while that is not a good place to be at this stage of the season, both teams will be aware that there is still enough time to make a run and get in. The Carolina Panthers have struggled with consistency all season long, while the Dolphins are finally getting into a hot streak after making a slow start to the season. Miami needs a much longer winning run than what they have now to get above the playoff line, while the Panthers are just looking to start a run. The Panthers are in as a 2-point road favorite, with the point total set at 42. Let’s take a closer look at both teams and how they arrive to this Panthers vs Dolphins match so you can place your bets against their NFL odds.

Why bet on the Carolina Panthers
The Panthers started the season off well enough, with Sam Darnold looking great at QB, but the wheels came off pretty quick. Including seeing Christian McCaffrey go down with injury once again. Carolina made a bit of a surprise move in bringing back Cam Newton to run the offense, and while he delivered a big spark in limited time in his first game back, he wasn’t able to lead the Panthers to a win in his first start, which came last weekend against the Washington Football Team. The Panthers are now just 2-6 SU in their last 8 games, but they are also 8-1 SU in their last 9 games versus teams from the AFC East Division. Where they have been a fantastic bet is when playing on the road, as they have gone 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games away from home. The UNDER has hit in 10 of Carolina’s last 14 games overall.
Why bet on the Miami Dolphins
We were all pretty quick to write the Dolphins off after a poor start to the season, and while they have a lot to do to get back into playoff contention, they are coming into this game on the heels of a 3-game winning streak. While two of those wins came against the bottom feeders in the league, the third of the bunch was a big win over the Baltimore Ravens. They are still a couple of wins back of the #7 team in the AFC, so there is basically zero margin for error for the Dolphins in the second half of the season. They have been a very good bet against the spread at home, going 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games played on home field. They have also covered the spread in 7 of their last 8 games played in the month of November. 4 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams have gone UNDER.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
I would be surprised if we see a ton of offense in this game and I expect it to be a close one. I am leaning towards the Panthers in this game, and I have them winning and covering the spread.
