Five Reasons Why The Panthers Can Win MNF Without Cam Newton

It’s been a tough start to the season for the Panthers, who appear to be the latest victim of the infamous “Super Bowl Hangover”. Carolina comes into Week 5 with a 1-3 record, and they will not have the reigning NFL MVP under center when they host the Buccaneers on Monday Night Football. That doesn’t mean they won’t win the game though, and here are 5 reasons why you might still want to bet on the Panthers:

1. Not Missing Much

Newton hasn’t played very well at all, completing just 58 percent of his passes, with six touchdowns and five interceptions. He was terrible in a home loss to the Vikings two weeks ago, throwing for 262 yards and three interceptions on 21-of-35 passing.

2. Capable Backup

Derek Anderson was picked off twice after replacing Newton in last week’s loss to the Falcons, but he stepped right in and moved the ball up field. He threw for 172 yards and two scores, and he was quite accurate completing 17-of-23 passes. The 33 year old veteran started two games in 2014, and both of those came against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He threw for 507 yards and three touchdowns on 66 percent passing, with no interceptions. The Panthers won both games.

3. Defense

While Carolina’s defense has really been a disappointment so far, the Buccaneers rank next to last in the NFL allowing 32 points per game. Injuries to defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and defensive end Robert Ayers will make matters even worse here on the road in Carolina.

4. Home Field Advantage

The Bucs have really struggled away from home, failing to cover the spread in four of their last five road games. Five of Winston’s eight interceptions have come in his two starts on the road. They turned the ball over five times in a 40-7 loss at Arizona in their last road game.

5. Jameis Winston

The second year quarterback has been picked off eight times in four games this season. He’s played poorly in previous games against the Panthers. Last year he threw six picks and just a pair of touchdown passes, losing both of his starts versus Carolina. With his first and second string running backs sidelined by injury, the pressure will be on Winston to carry the load offensively.

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
