Washington vs Panthers Prediction

WFT is coming into this matchup as a 3.5 point underdog with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. The Panthers blew out the Cardinals in their last game but they were facing a very weakened Cardinals team with no Kyler Murray and no Deandre Hopkins. The Panthers offense did not move the ball well in that game through the air and the Washington defense is starting to play well again, just like the defense that was top 5 in the NFL last season. WFT is going to have a lot of confidence after their win against Tom Brady and the Bucs. The best bet to place in this game is on the WFT to cover the spread in this game as they have a really good chance at winning this game due to their defense and the inept Panthers offense. 
 
Washington Panthers Prediction:  Our NFL Pick for Sunday, November 21, 2021 (1:00 pm ET start time) is WFT 23 Panthers 20.
