The Panthers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in December. The Packers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. NFC. The over is 4-1 in Panthers last 5 games overall. The under is 6-0 in Packers last 6 games in December. The home team is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The Carolina Panthers can't finish a game and they're below average on both sides of the ball, but they've been competitive all season and seven of their nine losses have been decided by single digits. The Green Bay Packers have topped 30 points in each of their last four games and five of their last seven wins have been won by double digits. The Packers should be able to get the job done here, but this feels like too many points to turn down with the Panthers given just how competitive they've been all season.
