Panthers vs Redskins By the Numbers

December 19, 2016

Monday Night Football in Week 15 features the Carolina Panthers visiting the Washington Redskins in an NFC clash. While Washington is battling for a wildcard spot in the NFC, the hopes of Carolina reaching the postseason are so faint, the team will be playing for little else but its own pride.

Carolina quarterback Cam Newton has seen success when playing against the Redskins during his career.

In three career games versus Washington, Newton has led his Panthers to a record of 3-0 straight up and against the spread. In those same games, Carolina has outscored the Redskins 98-49 and Newton has thrown 7 touchdown passes and no interceptions.

On the other side of the ball, Washington is playing well against opponents that have a losing record. Washington is 8-2 ATS in its past 10 games against opponents that fit in that category, like Carolina does at 5-8.

On the road the Panthers are a very poor 1-5 SU while 1-4-1 ATS. Carolina gives up more points on the road than any other team in the NFL with the exception of the San Francisco 49ers. The Panthers are allowing an average of 32.5 points a game in six games on the road.

The total has been one of the week’s highest, opening at 51. The OVER has trended for both teams of late. Carolina has seen the OVER cash in five of its six games played on the road, while four of six home games have cashed OVER for Washington.

Carolina is 4-7-2 ATS this season, while Washington is 9-4 ATS. The OVER is 7-6 in Carolina games and 11-2 in Washington games.

Washington has not played well in the spotlight of Monday Night Football going 2-10 SU in its past 12 games on Monday night.

Even worse are the Panthers on the road. Carolina is 0-6 SU over its past 6 games as a visitor, against teams with a record above .500.

Using these numbers, plus any key injuries or important players returning from injury should be useful in helping to make a more educated choice in this Monday Night Football showdown.
