Buccaneers vs. Panthers 2013 picks and predictions: Carolina heavily favored at home against Tampa Bay

NFL experts are making their picks for the Week 13 matchup between the Buccaneers and Panthers.

The Panthers will host the Buccaneers in Week 13 in Carolina. Both NFC South teams are on impressive runs, with Carolina on a seven-game win streak while Tampa Bay has won three straight games. The Panthers and Buccaneers have really come on in recent weeks and the Panthers are now playing for the division crown.

The Panthers are an 8.5-point favorite at home. For CBS Sports' panel, six of the eight think that is a too big of a margin. However, when picking straight up, the panel completely got behind the Panthers. For Yahoo! Sports, its panel of two is going all-in on Carolina as well.

For SB Nation, the six experts are also all on the same page. The six analysts all went with the Panthers to continue their streak and end the Buccaneers' hopes for a fourth straight win.

The Panthers will host the Buccaneers on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.
