Bills vs Panthers Prediction, Odds & Betting Trends for NFL Preseason Game on FanDuel Sportsbook (Aug 26)
Bills vs Panthers Preseason Game Info
Week 3 of the NFL preseason includes a showdown between the Buffalo Bills on Friday night. The Bills are absolutely buzzing following a massive 42-15 victory over the Denver Broncos this past weekend. It was an all-around team effort that involved Buffalo racking up 208 rushing yards on 27 carries.
The Panthers, on the other hand, weren't as lucky last week. Though Matt Rhule's team led 3-0 after the first quarter, it was all the New England Patriots from there, eventually beating Carolina by a final score of 20-10.

Bills vs Panthers Prediction & Pick
Though the Bills have been dominant this preseason, there isn't much of a reason for them to try their hardest to beat the Panthers. Most of Buffalo's major position battles are settled and it won't be shocking if Sean McDermott rests most of his starters, if not all of them.
Meanwhile, the Panthers will have a slight edge due to them likely playing more of their starters. The Bills' defenders should keep things close, however, Carolina's players have more riding on the line as they battle for a 53-man roster spot, needing their best effort to crack the lineup.
Final Score Prediction: Panthers: 24 | Bills: 20

There isn't much value to be had with an outright Panthers win, so I'm looking to the total here. Both teams have combined for the over more often than not in their recent meetings. Even if Buffalo rests key players, the Bills and Panthers have enough talent to surpass the 42-point projected total.
Bet: Over 42 Points (-115)
