Carolina Panthers at Dallas Cowboys Picks & Betting Tips

Dallas can be the first team to beat Carolina this season, but they may not cover.

Sam Darnold and that Panthers offense has looked good, but Christian McCaffrey remains sidelined.

That is a big blow for a team that needs to keep pace with this red-hot Dallas offense.

Carolina’s defense is for real though, so the Panthers could at least cover in a defeat in ‘Jerry World’.

  • Carolina Panthers are 3-0-0 ATS this season
  • Carolina Panthers rank #1 in total yards allowed (573)
  • Carolina Panthers rank #1 in average yards allowed per game (191.0)
  • Carolina Panthers rank #2 in total points allowed (30)
  • Carolina Panthers rank #2 in average points per game allowed (10.0)

  • Carolina Panthers won 16-8 the last time these two teams met in 2018

Carolina Panthers Form

Carolina have been one of the early surprises, reeling off three straight wins to make a perfect start.

The Panthers held on for a 19-14 season-opening win at the New York Jets but were much better a week later.

They eased to a 26-7 win over a New Orleans team that had embarrassed Green Bay on opening day.

Carolina then made it three-in-a-row as another strong defensive effort led them to a 24-9 win over Houston.

QB Sam Darnold has settled in well in Carolina, going 73/107 for 888 yards, three touchdowns and a pick.

Darnold has forged some early chemistry with DJ Moore, who has 22 catches for 285 yards and a TD.

RB Christian McCaffrey is the star of this offense with 364 yards from scrimmage and a TD. He is out injured here though.

The biggest reason for Carolina’s 3-0 start is this defense though. It ranks #1 in total yards and yards per game, and #2 in total points and points per game.

Carolina Panthers Injury Report

Dallas Cowboys Form

Dallas go into this game with a 2-1 record but came agonisingly close to boasting a 100% record.

The Cowboys lost 31-29 to defending champions Tampa Bay on opening night, but it took a last-gasp field goal to beat them.

They bounced back immediately with an impressive 20-17 victory at the Los Angeles Chargers.

Dallas then made it back-to-back wins with a 41-21 blowout win over Philadelphia on Monday Night Football.

QB Dak Prescott has looked great in his return from injury. He us 86/111 or 878 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions.

CeeDee Lamb has been on the receiving end of 251 of those yards, finding the endzone once.

Amari Cooper and Dalton Schultz each have two TDs while combining for 332 receiving yards.

In the backfield Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard have been a two-headed monster. The pair have combined for 500 yards from scrimmage and four scores.

Dallas’ defense ranks near the bottom of the league in terms of yardage allowed, but it is knocking on the door to the top 10 when it comes to points allowed.

  • DE Carlos Watkins (knee) - Out
  • S Donovan Wilson (groin) - Out

Carolina deserve plenty of praise for getting to 3-0 but this is their biggest test of the season so far.

It is a test that they are likely to fail. Dallas are looking sharp right with Dak Prescott back under center.

This Panthers defense is legit though, so they could keep this one close and cover in a losing effort.
