Cam Newton Favored Against Ron Rivera’s Football Team

  • The Carolina Panthers are favored by 3.5 points against the Washington Football Team.
  • Cam Newton is expected to start and face his former head coach, Ron Rivera, for the first time.
  • The total is set at just 43.0 points, one of the lowest of the entire week.

CHARLOTTE – Cam Newton and Ron Rivera will face each other for the first time after spending nine years together and sportsbooks are giving the quarterback a betting advantage.

The Washington Football Team is coming off of its biggest win of the season after beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 10. The Carolina Panthers will be making a major switch, starting Cam Newton at quarterback after Sam Darnold was placed on IR.

Football Team vs Panthers Spread Odds

  • Washington Football Team +3.5 -120
  • Carolina Panthers -3.5 EVEN

It’s a tough game to handicap since there’s no telling what the Panthers’ offense will look like with Newton running the show, but it can be determined that the Football Team may have betting value on the moneyline per online sportsbooks.

Not only did Washington just beat one of the Super Bowl favorites, but Ron Rivera has years of data on what Newton is good at and what his weaknesses are. Rivera even admitted to having plays designed specifically to give Newton trouble.

Football Team vs Panthers Moneyline Odds

  • Washington Football Team +145
  • Carolina Panthers -170

While playing for New England in 2020, Newton threw for just 177.1 yards per game and eight touchdowns - both of which were career lows. It’s no secret that Newton is no longer an MVP caliber player and it’s possible he could hurt the team more than he helps it in Week 11.

Betting The Total: 43.0 Points

This is another tough number to bet on due to the question marks surrounding Carolina, but it should be known that Newton led the Patriots to just 20.4 points per game last season which was the sixth-fewest in the NFL. However, the Panthers’ offense is currently average 20.5 points per game, so it’s possible the offensive scoring doesn’t change too much.

Panthers vs Football Team Total Odds

  • OVER 43.0 -110
  • UNDER 43.0 -110

The Carolina defense has allowed just 19.3 points per game this season which gives the team an average total of just 39.8 points in their games this year. Those betting on the NFL should also take note of the unimpressive Washington offense that scores just 20.6 points per game.

Combined together, the teams score 41.1 points per game and allow 46.6 points per game. Seven of Carolina’s 10 games have gone UNDER the set total while the same can only be said for three of Washington’s nine games.

Kick-off is scheduled for 1 p.m. EST and can be seen on FOX.
