A new era begins for the Carolina Panthers in Week 6 when interim head coach Steve Wilks takes his team to the Los Angeles Rams.

After another rollercoaster week for the Carolina Panthers, it’s time for the players to get themselves ready for a crunch clash with the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6 at SoFi Stadium. Matt Rhule is no longer around after team owner David Tepper finally pulled the plug on his head coaching experiment, leaving interim appointment Steve Wilks tasked with restoring pride back to the organization over their remaining fixtures.

That will be easier said than done in Carolina’s current predicament. But the Rams are going through some turmoil of their own after a memorable playoff run to secure the Vince Lombardi Trophy on home soil in 2021.

The Panthers are missing some key men for the clash. There are also some significant trade rumors swirling around the likes of Robbie Anderson and Christian McCaffrey that cannot be ignored as those in power look to form a sustainable plan for future success.

It’ll be interesting to see how the Panthers respond after a difficult week for many. But if there is anyone that can galvanize the group into a strong performance on the road, it’s Wilks.

Carolina Panthers at LA Rams best bets for Week 6

The Panthers are currently 10-point underdogs at the Rams in Week 6 according to FanDuel Sportsbook. They are +370 on the money line (bet $100 to win $370), with Los Angeles unsurprisingly favored at -480 (bet $480 to win $100) to get their campaign back on track.

FanDuel Sportsbook has listed the over/under at 41.5 points, which can be bet at -110 in both directions (bet $110 to win $100).

It’s hard to look at Carolina’s plight right now and state with confidence they can emerge from their trip to California with a victory. However, Wilks’ presence might be enough to ensure they cover the spread, which is our play this week.
