Roll, Tide

You say 16-14 is barely a win? I say sure, but a win's a win's a win and it's better than the last two weeks, a sign that the tide's a turnin' in my prognosticating favor. Especially since not only did the best bets hit, but the ones I mulled as solid picks weren't all that bad either. So, with a 7-8 tally on the spread and a 9-5 tally on the O/U, the stats for the season stand at:

Spread: 65-68-6 (49%)
O/U: 73-63-2 (54%)
Total: 137-131-8 (51%)

Best Bets
Spread 6-2-2 (75%)
O/U 7-3 (70%)

As for tonight, Carolina's at home giving 9.5 to Tampa; over/under's at 37. Which means the book's are basically making you decide whether you think the Panthers will win roughly 23-13. It's a division game, but that doesn't mean Carolina, which needs this one to get on its annual second-half run in the hopes of coming out of a weak NFC. They will. And they'll cover. The game, however, will stay under. 23-10's my guess.
