Thursday Night DraftKings Showdown: Week 2
The Buccaneers visit the Panthers to kick off Week 2. I’ll be bringing this Thursday night preview each week breaking down this single-game slate for DraftKings contests as part of the Footballers’ DFS Pass.
At first glance, Vegas has Carolina as six and a half point favorites and that feels like a solid line as they get to play at home against a Buccaneers’ team that just lost badly to the 49ers 31-17. The Over/Under is set at 50, which currently ranks as the fourth-highest total of Week 2.
Vegas clearly expects a solid amount of points to be scored in this one and rightfully so, with average at best defenses trying to defend against offensive weapons galore on both sides of the ball. Projected game flow tells us playing Kickers and Defenses in this Showdown slate doesn’t make for good process, with the exception of taking a chance on the Panthers D/ST since Jameis Winston making bone-headed bad decisions is always a solid bet.
