Tampa opens action this week as a 3.5 favorite.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host division rival Carolina this weekend, looking to stop a five game slide. Coming into the year, it would have been hard to believe that the Panthers would be near equals with the Bucs, but according to our partners at OddsShark, that seems to be the case.

Carolina broke a 12-game road losing skid last week and look for two in a row as they visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13 NFL betting.While the road pattern works against them, so does the role as underdog. The Panthers have lost 15 in a row SU as underdog and they 2-8 ATS past 10 as a road underdog.Not that Tampa has been a money machine as a home favorite. In their past 13 home games in December, they are a pitiful 2-11 ATS and 3-10 SU. Of note, the OVER is 7-1 past 8 meetings between the Bucs and Panthers at Tampa Bay.

Tampa opens action this week as a 3.5 favorite.
