Lean – NY GIANTS (+3) over Carolina

Panthers head coach Matt Rhule indicated that we’ll see a different look from Carolina’s offense as they plan on increasing the use of the ground game and I’m expecting the offense to score fewer points with this approach. The Panthers rush offense ranks below league average according to our metrics and backup RB Chuba Hubbard is avoiding only 0.09 tackles per carry while Christian McCaffrey (out with a strained hamstring) was averaging 0.19 avoided tackles per attempt.

Sam Darnold will be under pressure in the instances Carolina decides to pass as Giants interior defender Dexter Lawrence ranks 15th in pass rushing efficiency while Panthers RG John Miller is surrendering 3.6 pressures per game and C Matt Paradis ranks last among 30 qualifying centers in pass blocking efficiency. James Bradberry has a 17% forced incompletion rate (9th) and the Pro Bowl cornerback will limit Carolina wide receiver DJ Moore, who is averaging 2.19 yards per route run (13th).

New York LT Andrew Thomas has been dealing with a lingering injury in his right foot and will be out until after the bye week. Thomas ranks 7th in pass blocking efficiency and is worth 0.7 points over backup tackle Matt Peart, who has surrendered 2 sacks in 104 pass blocking snaps. Daniel Jones should get the ball out quickly to Sterling Shepard, who is running 73% of his routes from the slot. Shepard is averaging 2.05 yards per route run (19th) and the Panthers are surrendering 1.47 yards per slot cover snap. It looks like CB Stephon Gilmore will make his debut for Carolina’s defense this week and he is worth about a point if he plays at his normal high level for his new team.

Our model favors the Panthers by 2.6 points, with a predicted total of 43.7 points. The matchups favor the Giants and I’ll lean with the G-Men at +3 or more.
