In a rare occurrence, in the Panthers vs. Broncos matchup the Super Bowl 50 defending champions find themselves the underdog according to the football handicappers at +3. The reason behind it is that they will be using Trevor Siemian as their starting quarterback who lacks any NFL experience other than one career snap which was a kneel down.
For the Buccaneers vs. Falcons matchup, Tampa is the underdog at +3 and we expect the Falcons to cover the spread. Even though both team have more or less similar offensive strength, they do have the advantage in the passing game and the interception factor.
In the Vikings vs Titans matchup, the Vikings will barely win against the Titans despite Teddy Bridgewater suffering from a torn anterior ligament. However, we still expect them to cover the spread as the Titans offense is one of the worst in the league.
