A 3-0 start has cooled off and the Carolina Panthers (3-3) have dropped three straight– one of two teams in the NFL to hit that mark. Sam Darnold has fallen off from his terrific start as the Panthers lost in overtime to the Vikings in Week 6. The Panthers hit the road to face the New York Giants (1-5) in Week 7. Carolina began the year pressuring the quarterback well, but have recorded just one sack as a team over their last three games.
The Panthers are road favorites and the game has an over/under of – one of the lowest marks on the season.

Panthers prop bets
Prop bets are based on individual performance, typically surrounding players. After a quiet start to the season, D.J. Moore became an excellent value target for prop betting in the NFL season’s later weeks. For example, Moore’s projected receiving total in the Panthers’ Week 7 matchup with the New Orleans Saints was 67.5 yards. That game, he hauled in 93 yards and those that bet over his receiving prop would have cashed out.

How to bet on the Carolina Panthers
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Ravens -185
- Panthers +310
The Panthers are heavy underdogs in this matchup, paying out $410 total for a $100 bet ($310 in winnings). The Ravens are the favorites in this matchup (indicated by -185), requiring a $185 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Panthers -3.5 (-110)
- Washington +3.5 (-110)
In this example, Carolina is favored by 3.5 points, indicated by “-3.5.” If the Panthers win the game 24-20, the Panthers (-3.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Washington keep the game within four and lose 23-17, Washington (+3.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Panthers’ Week 8 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons had a projected point total of 44.5 points. The Panthers lost that game 25-17, resulting in 42 total points. Those that bet under the point total would have cashed out.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Panthers (-110) were heavily favored against the Jets (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on Carolina to win would win $9.09.
However, say the Panthers fell to a big 21-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to costly turnovers or a special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Jets, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Panthers to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +155). Should a bettor take Carolina (+155) at halftime and the Panthers pull off the comeback, winners would win $15.50 instead of $9.09 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Jets (+190) in that game, but Carolina jumps out to a 14-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Carolina (-190) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
Panthers 2020 recap
Record ATS: 9-7
Over/under record: 7-9
Taking the Panthers’ record without context would have indicated that this team had a failure of a season and were noncompetitive. However, the Panthers had several close call games where they looked like a threat to top teams, including the Saints (lost 27-24), the Chiefs (lost 33-31) and the Packers (lost 24-16). While Teddy Bridgewater isn’t the long term answer for the franchise, he was sufficient and moved the offense with the skill group Carolina fielded.
