Carolina Panthers at San Francisco 49ers
Panthers at 49ers 41.5: San Francisco’s measly 9-0 win at Washington might indicate the 49ers’ offense was awful, but the game was played in a swamp.
The Panthers, meanwhile, are off a bye and on a four-game winning streak behind QB Kyle Allen. And although Carolina RB Christian McCaffrey was stuffed two weeks ago in London for the second time this year against Tampa Bay, it came against the Bucs’ league-best rush defense (2.9 a carry). Against all other foes McCaffrey’s norm is 6.2 a rush.
Speaking of rushing, the 49ers average the second most ground yards a game and will face a Carolina defense that’s in the bottom third in the league in yards allowed per carry. OVER
