The Carolina Panthers are nine-point American football betting favorites versus the Miami Dolphins, but if Cam Newton had his way, we would all just skip right to the NFL Superbowl line: ‘Panthers vs. TBD.’ “I feel as if we can’t do no wrong,” the Carolina QB said. Sadly, he didn’t follow up with “we don’t need no education,” because both statements would paradoxically be equal parts accurate and incorrect. One would not be, at this point, surprised to hear Newton use an expression like, for example, ‘betting games for football,’ under the impression that it actually means something.
Countdown to MNF and we hear from Jay Cutler and @NdamukongSuh.

My Cam will go on
The Panthers signal-caller delivered another pearl of wisdom after Carolina’s 20-17 over the Falcons on Sunday: “Yeah, we just lost a great player (Kelvin Benjamin). But nevertheless, the Titanic still has to go.” We think, however, that that one might be an apocryphal quote. Like Cam would even know, let alone use, the word ‘nevertheless.’ It’s too bad Newton the person and quarterback isn’t as humble as his vocabulary; the Panthers are 9-2 SU and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a win as an underdog, but they are 2-3 SU and 1-3-1 ATS as favorites this season, as well as 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games at night, 2-5 ATS in their last seven games in Week 10, and 1-4 ATS in their last five games at home. Carolina is, on the plus side, 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games played in November and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games after an against the American football betting spread win.
And they say Dolphins are smart
The Miami Dolphins have not one but at least two report cards, and it’s not because they forged a second one with better grades. Both are, in fact, pretty bad, but then, what did you expect? They’re juggling at least two different schools and a part-time job. No wonder their grades are down. But they’re not helping themselves, either. Trading Jay Ajayi? That was, like trying to split a railway carriage with your nose, not the smartest move. Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams rushed for 86 yards in Sunday’s 24-27 loss to the Raiders, but the Dolphins have yet to see the light at the end of the rushing tunnel. Miami has lost and failed to cover in their last two game, which were both at night, but that particular nightmare is about to end; this will be the Fins’ last night game until week 14. Miami is 1-10 SU in its last 11 road games playing teams with a winning record, 2-0-2 ATS in their last four games on grass, 3-1-1 ATS in their last five in November, 8-18-1 ATS in their last 27 after an ATS loss and 0-7 against the American football betting spread in their last seven games on Monday.
