Jaguars vs Panthers Final NFL Betting Analysis
The Panthers are a different team with Kyle Allen. First, let’s take a look at Allen’s stats. In two games, he’s thrown 4 TD passes and no interceptions. His completion percentage is 71.7%. He’s got a 118.3 QB rating.
Allen, a former Texas A&M Aggie, takes what the defense gives him. He won’t force anything, which is why he’s been so effective. It’s impossible to stop the Panthers’ offense without concentrating on containing running back Christian McCaffrey. When defenses do that, Allen can expose holes in the secondary.
Either way, the Panthers have an advantage in most offense versus defense matchups. They definitely have an advantage on Oct. 6 versus the Jaguars, who allow 266.8 passing yards per. Carolina covers.
