Panthers vs Bengals Betting Pick
This game will be played at Paycor Stadium at 1:00 PM ET on Sunday, November 6, 2022.
Why Bet The Over:
✅ The Carolina Panthers have really improved offensively over the last couple of weeks, which seems inexplicable after they got rid of Robbie Anderson and Christian McCaffrey. But they have scored at least 21 points in each of their last two games, and P.J. Walker is playing some better football of late. Expect Carolina to chip in to help this game hit the over.
✅ This number feels like an overreaction to Ja’Marr Chase’s absence in the Bengals offense. Chase is undoubtedly an elite weapon for the Bengals, but they have plenty of other players capable of making big plays. Expect Tyler Boyd in particular to help fill the void and get this game over the total.
✅ The running game for the Panthers has really helped them in recent weeks as well. There was worry about how the Panthers offense would function on the ground without Christian McCaffrey, but D’Onta Foreman has really stepped up in his absence. That should continue against a middle of the pack Bengals run defense.
The Carolina Panthers should have beaten the Atlanta Falcons in regulation in Week 8. But a controversial excessive celebration penalty resulted in a missed extra point that sent the game to overtime. In overtime, they had another chance to win the game, but missed a game-winning field goal attempt. This week, the Panthers will aim to overcome their missed opportunity to lead the NFC South with a win in Cincinnati.
For the Panthers, the wins have been hard to come by, but they have to be encouraged about the fight they have shown lately. After trading away multiple stars on offense and being down to their third string quarterback and an interim coach, they have been very competitive. If that persists here, who knows whether or not the Panthers can score another upset.
The Cincinnati Bengals come into Week 9 on short rest, having played on Monday Night Football their last time out. Cincinnati will be dealing with some injuries on offense, with Ja’Marr Chase dealing with a hip ailment. But Chase is not expected to go on injured reserve, leaving his status up in the air here.
For the Bengals, the key to this game is going to be stopping the run. Carolina has done very well on the ground in the post-Christian McCaffrey period of this season. If the Bengals can slow down D’Onta Foreman, and force P.J. Walker into long-yardage passing downs, the Bengals could prey on Carolina’s third string passer.
