Carolina Panthers vs. Denver Broncos Betting Preview September 8, 2016

Carolina Panthers (0-0) vs. Denver Broncos (0-0) Game Preview

Spread: Carolina -3 (5dimes)

Total: 42

Kickoff: 8:30 pm ET

Location: Sports Authority Field, Denver Co.

Television Broadcast: NBC

PREVIEW: The 2016 season starts where the 2015 season left off, with a rematch of Super Bowl 50. The Broncos were a 4.5 point underdog in the last game, but they won outright by a score of 24-10. The Denver defense dominated the game from start to finish, forcing Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to make some ill advised throws. The intense pressure of the Broncos forced Newton to make poor decisions, and he turned the ball over several times. Situational handicappers will be looking at a revenge spot here, with Newton and Carolina having a chance to exorcise some demons. The public money is heavy on Carolina, according to consensus analysis, 73 percent of bettors are backing the Panthers. History tells us that these two teams haven’t scored a lot of points in previous meetings, failing to reach the total in four of the last five games. The public has taken notice, with 64 percent of bettors favoring the under. Denver could be a bit shorthanded on defense though, with DeMarcus Ware’s status listed as questionable due to a sore back. The Panthers defense also took a big hit in the off-season, losing Josh Norman to the Redskins. Both teams were 2-2 in the pre-season, but Denver won handily (19-9 vs LA) in “dress rehearsal” week, while the Panthers lost at home to the Patriots.

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 1-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.5 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to five percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
