Lions vs Panthers Betting Pick Prediction
Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a minor MCL sprain. Although he participated in the team’s practice last Wednesday, he might still be unavailable for Sunday’s game. On the other hand, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is suffering from a thumb injury. That means more playing time for D’Andre Swift, even if Stafford is going to play.
In his last game, Swift had 16 rushes, 5.1 yards per carry, and 81 yards. It was his first start in the NFL. Sports betting predictions experts expect the Lions to use Swift in their offensive plays. According to sports news reports, Kenny Golladay is still suffering from a hip injury. Thus, Swift will become the focal point of the Lions’ offense.
The Panthers struggled with running in 2020. They are 29th in yards per carry with 4.8, 20th in yards per game in 124.5, 27th in total rush yards with 1246, 30th in rushing touchdowns with 14, and 25th in 20+ yards carry with eight.
According to a sports forum, the Panthers are rebuilding. However, they are not tanking this season. Bridgewater’s inconsistency contributes to their inability to earn back-to-back wins.
