It’s interesting that the Panthers are the favorites here after suffering two straight blowout losses.  The Bears haven’t been lights out but they employ more than enough offensive weapons to give the Panther’s defense fits.  Perhaps Vegas expects them to snap out of their current funk, which wouldn’t be a surprise.  We just think that there are too many injuries for the Panthers to stand much of a chance Sunday.
