The Carolina Panthers will be looking to move past the .500 mark at Bank of America Stadium when they host the Denver Broncos in Week 12. The Broncos fell short in a 22-16 overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. Quarterback Russell Wilson failed to throw a touchdown for the third time in 2022.

Meanwhile, the Panthers couldn't find any momentum on offense during a 13-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11. Quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 21 of his 33 pass attempts for just 196 yards and a pair of costly interceptions. Carolina has not yet named a starting QB for Sunday's action.

Broncos vs Panthers Prediction & Pick

It has been one disappointing effort after another for Wilson this season. The veteran QB has thrown 7 touchdowns compared to 5 interceptions and is completing a career-low 59.5% of his passes. He is holding the Broncos back on offense and leading them to just 14.7 points per game (No. 32 in NFL).

The Panthers have shown potential when playing in front of their home fans. Carolina is putting up 20.5 points and 293.0 yards at home compared to 16.8 points and 277.8 yards on the road. Running back D'Onta Foreman is also averaging a reliable 5.4 yards per carry across the last two home games.

Denver is allowing 4.7 yards per carry this year (T-No. 25 in NFL), so I'll side with Foreman & Carolina.

Final Score Prediction: Broncos: 14 | Panthers: 20

- The total has hit the under in four of Carolina's last five home games.

Broncos vs Panthers Best Bet

Picking a side in this game is difficult, which makes paying more attention to the point total a smart move. Neither one of these teams is averaging more than 19 points per game on the season or more than 4.9 yards per play over the last three weeks. Expect a lot of stalled possessions on Sunday.

Stalled possessions would mean less points. The under has hit in each of Denver's last six games as well as in seven of Carolina's last 10 games. The under has also cashed in four of the Panthers' last five home games. There's not enough talent on these rosters to overcome the struggles at QB.

Bet: Under 36.5 Points (-112)
