The Panthers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 20-9-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The Titans are 16-36-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 7-20-2 ATS in their last 29 games overall.
The Titans are playing better football lately and have a very solid defense. But the Panthers aren't the Saints and won't allow teams to hang around. Carolina is easily one of the better teams in the league, and Tennessee simply isn't at that level right now.
Give me the Panthers and the reasonable chalk.
