Despite being 4-7 on the season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still in the hunt to win the NFC South ahead of their matchup against the Carolina Panthers on CBS and Paramount+. Tampa Bay enters losing six of its last seven games, but all six of those losses came against teams either currently in the playoffs or sporting a record of at least .500. The Panthers certainly don't fit that criteria, entering with a 1-10 record and preparing to play in their first game since firing head coach Frank Reich on Monday in his first season in Carolina. You can stream the game in select markets on Paramount+, which you can now try free for 30 days with the promo code STREAMNFL when you sign up here (expires 12/31/23).

Week 13 NFL picks for Panthers vs. Buccaneers
Before tuning into Sunday's Buccaneers vs. Panthers game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up well over $7,000 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception. The model enters Week 13 of the 2023 NFL season on an incredible 175-126 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. It is also on a 29-18 roll on top-rated NFL picks since Week 7 of last season and is 22-8 straight-up the last two weeks.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past six years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Panthers vs. Buccaneers, the model is backing the Buccaneers to cover the spread. The Panthers have failed to score more than 13 points in any of their last four games, which played a role in the removal of Reich despite it only being his first season with the team. Bryce Young, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, is averaging 168.8 passing yards per game over his last four games, failing to reach 200 yards in any of those contests, with two touchdowns compared to four interceptions. Young has a QBR of 32.3, 29th of 30 qualified quarterbacks this season.
Tampa Bay has struggled against teams at or above the .500 mark this season, but the Buccaneers have taken advantage of weaker opponents. The Buccaneers are 3-1 against teams with a losing record heading into their first matchup of the season against the Panthers. Running back Rachaad White has been a versatile option out of the backfield, totaling at least 98 yards in five of his last six games. White rushed for 100 yards on 15 carries last week against the Colts and the Panthers are allowing the fifth-most rushing yards to opposing running backs this week. The SportsLine model projects White to reach 75 total yards, one of the reasons it projects the Buccaneers to cover the spread in over 60% of simulations. You may be able to stream the game here.
