NFL Early Bird
Oakland vs. Carolina,

Score: 6 - 17
Point Spread: -8½/-110 Carolina
*3 Star NFL Early Bird Special* The Oakland Raiders haven't been competitive on the road this year. Oakland has won only once away from home and that was against the lowly Kansas City Chiefs. In their five losses on the road, four of them have been by more than 20 points. Basically, this Raiders team is no stranger to getting blown out on the road. It seems strange to lay this big of a number with a team that is 5-9 on the year, but the Panthers are playing very well right now. Cam Newton is playing the best football of his NFL career, and the Panthers defense has improved a lot. Carolina is 19-7 ATS in their last 26 December games. Oakland is 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 following an ATS win. Take Carolina.
