10* Big Ticket: Take Las Vegas (#459)

This is the wrong offseason for any new coaching staff.  When it’s a situation like Carolina’s, with a new head coach, new offensive coordinator, new defensive coordinator and new quarterback, we can only expect the transition to be a lengthy process.  Matt Rhule has engineered two impressive rebuilding projects at the college level, turning around the programs at Temple and Baylor.  Rhule’s record in his first year at Temple was 2-10.  His first year at Baylor, the Bears went 1-11. 

Make no mistake about it: this is going to be a lengthy  process for Carolina, not an immediate turnaround.  This Panthers team cannot be expected to win Week 1 against a veteran Raiders squad with much more continuity – returning their head coach, both coordinators and their QB – as well as a big chip on their collective shoulders off last year’s debacle.  Look for Vegas to open the season with a SU road win – the negative impact of West Coast teams travelling east for early start games is largely mitigated for Week 1 games.  Big Ticket: Take the Raiders.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
