The New York Jets have failed to cover eight of their last nine on the road, but they're in on a 6-2 against-the-spread win streak when installed as a double-digit road pup.
Carolina has won and covered five straight as the home chalk and will be motivated to win big here.
Odds Shark computer prediction: 26.5-10.8 Panthers
Why the Jets can cover the spread
Handing a scrappy team like the Jets double digits can be sketchy, especially since they arrive on Tobacco Road after snapping a three-game losing streak with a 10-point home win last week against Oakland.
After being limited to 20 points during their three-game skid, the Jets found their offense with a 37-spot against the Raiders.
As a double-digit dog, the Jets have been a solid bet in recent years at 6-2 ATS.
Why the Panthers can cover the spread
Carolina will be motivated to avenge last week's 18-point loss in New Orleans, a setback that brought an abrupt halt to the Panthers' eight-game win streak.
Carolina is now one game back of New Orleans in the NFC South. With the Saints marching in next week for a division showdown, the Panthers will want to show up with plenty of momentum.
The Jets look like a value play when getting double digits. Carolina is in a precarious sandwich spot after losing to the Saints last week and hosting them next week.
The Panthers should win this game, but it has all the makings of a close contest that might come down to who is holding the ball last.
Take the points, as the Panthers get caught looking ahead.
- Jets are 1-8 SU past nine road games
- Jets are 6-2 ATS past eight as double-digit road underdog
- Panthers won and covered five straight as home chalk
