New England Patriots v. Carolina Panthers: Line and point spread

New England Patriots v. Carolina Panthers: Line and point spread Once again it's time for Monday night football and today we will preview the New England Patriots at Carolina Panthers line and point spread on the NFL Week 11 closer.  Right now the New England Patriots (7-2) are atop of the AFC East but will travel tonight to face a tough opponent, the Carolina Panthers (6-3), who still have a good chance for a playoff berth this season, currently occupying the second spot on the NFC South  division, just behind the Saints. Considering this is a home game for the Panthers, Carolina will view this game as a must-win and a victory will be a big boost for the Panthers. The Patriots, on the other side, are well ahead of the Jets (5-5) and can literally afford to lose the game tonight, although we all know they will go all out against Carolina.

 This, as well as some of the stats you can find further down, explain the line and spread on the Patriots Panthers game posted by the odds makers. Starting with the popular online sportsbook Bookmaker, we find the Panthers a surprisingly big favorite with money line -150 to win the game, while the Patriots hold underdog odds, +130 line to win the Monday night football game. At Bookmaker the New England Patriots vs. Carolina Panthers point spread is at -3 points chalk the Panthers, while at the rival odds maker Bovada Sports we find the spread and line quite different. At Bovada the Patriots Panthers point spread is actually just -1 point in favor of the Panthers, although the payout line on the spread is -115 if the Panthers manage to cover, which shows that this spread may move a bit further north in favor of Carolina. What the sportsbooks agree on is the total for the New England - Carolina game, which is set at 47 points.

 Looking at the betting stats, we find that Carolina is 5-1 straight up at home, but New England has beaten the line 6-2 in its last 8 games on the road. Keep in mind that the Patriots are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games when playing the Panthers. Also worth noting is that the total has gone OVER in 11 of New England's last 16 games on the road.  As far as the NFL stats are concerned, the New England Patriots outscore the Carolina Panthers 26.0 to 23.8 points on average, but the Panthers are much better defensively this season, allowing only 12.8 per game vs. the Patriots' 19.4 average per game. Injuries is where Carolina is also in a better position with only linebacker Chase Blackburn and tight end Ben Hartsock being out for the Monday night football game against New England, The Patriots, on the other side, will play without corner Alfonzo Dennard and safety Steve Gregory, but questionable still remain corners Kyle Arrington and Aqib Talib, as well as running back Leon Washington. Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola and more importantly quarterback Tom Brady have been upgraded to probable for the Week 11 NFL game against the Panthers tonight.
