The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, in what was one of the biggest upsets of the NFL season.

They look to bounce back in Week 7, when they take on the lowly Carolina Panthers, who are just 1-6 both straight up and against the spread to start the year.

The two teams are once again involved in a game with a double-digit spread. Which team should you bet on this week? Let's take a look at the latest odds.

Buccaneers vs. Panthers Prediction and Pick

I know that the Panthers organization is in complete shambles right now, but I just can't bet on the Buccaneers until they show me they can be the dominant team that we're used to seeing since Tom Brady joined them.

The Buccaneers rank a measly 21st in yards per play, and only managed 4.5 yards per snap against a depleted Steelers team last week. Their defense is still strong, but that's also the strength of the Panthers, who rank in the top half of the NFL in most defensive statistics.

The Panthers still have Christian McCaffrey (for now), and he alone should be able to generate enough offense to get the Panthers some points in this game. Considering Tampa Bay only averaged 20.2 points per game this season, Carolina may not need to score much to keep this within the point spread.

I'll begrudgingly bet on the Panthers in this spot.
