Carolina Panthers Odds, Bet Types & Team History
While the Carolina Panthers are now in their second year under a new coaching staff, it feels more like a do-over after a forgettable 2020. Head coach Matt Rhule’s team went 5-11 in his first NFL season, finishing third in the NFC South. The Panthers showed flashes of potential during a 3-2 start before losses in nine of their final 11 games derailed the season. QB Teddy Bridgewater is gone after one year in Charlotte with the franchise going in a different direction to try and right the ship.
That direction is former Jets QB Sam Darnold . Carolina’s first-year general manager Scott Fitterer sent New York three picks to acquire the former No. 3 overall selection. Darnold struggled to develop a rhythm over his first three seasons, going 13-25 as a starter. He threw for 2,208 yards, nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions over 12 games in 2020. At just 24 years of age, a change of scenery and a new offensive system could be what the young signal-caller needs to turn things around.
Fortunately for Darnold and the rest of the Panthers, running back Christian McCaffrey returns after playing just three games a year ago. The former first-team All-Pro battled three separate injuries in 2020, though he still managed to score six touchdowns and average 124.7 scrimmage yards per game. There’s no denying McCaffrey as one of the NFL’s top backs when healthy. He racked up 4,357 total yards and 32 total touchdowns over the 2018 and 2019 seasons. Carolina also used a fourth-round pick on Oklahoma State star Chubba Hubbard to add some running back depth.
Wide receiver was likely the Panthers most steady position group last yeAfterfter hauling in 66 receptions for 1,193 yards and four touchdowns, his second consecutive season with more than 1,100 yards. Opposite Moore was Robby Anderson , playing his first season in Carolina. Anderson thrived in offensive coordinator Joe Brady’s system, registering career-highs in receptions (95) and yards (1,096). With Curtis Samuel leaving in free agency, look at second-round pick Terrace Marshall Jr. as someone who could step into the No. 3 spot. Marshall had nearly 1,600 yards and 23 touchdowns in two college seasons.
Carolina’s defense was a middle of the pack unit in 2020, allowing the 15th-most points per game. Some key starters are back along with one newcomer you need to know. Linebacker Jeremy Chinn will look to build on a strong rookie campaign that saw him record 116 total tackles, five pass breakups and a sack. Chinn’s emergence makes him a strong complement to fellow linebacker and captain Shaq Thompson , who had 113 total tackles and five pass breakups last season. Defensive end Brian Burns is back to lead the pass rush after putting up a team-best nine sacks. The Panthers also selected cornerback Jaycee Horn eighth overall in the 2021 NFL draft to bolster their secondary.
The Panthers open the 2021 NFL season at home versus the New York Jets. You can view the Action Network’s top odds for the game below in addition to an NFL odds comparison for every Week 1 game.

The Carolina Panthers last reached the NFL playoffs in 2017. Since then, the franchise has finished under .500 in each of the next three seasons, including a 5-11 record in 2020. The New Orleans Saints have held the NFC South for four seasons now, most recently winning the division crown last year at 12-4. Though they’ve been the toughest team to beat in the regular season recently, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers got into the 2020 playoffs with a wild card at 11-5 and became just the third NFC South team since 2002 to win a Super Bowl. The Atlanta Falcons finished fourth a year ago at 4-12, but could look much different under a new coaching staff.

Betting on the Carolina Panthers
Carolina Panthers Point Spreads
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. Last season the Panthers had an average margin of victory of 9.8 points. Eight of their 11 losses were by one possession or less. Carolina finished 9-7 against the spread.
Here’s an example:
- Falcons +3.5 (+110)
- Panthers -3.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Falcons are 3.5 point underdogs against the Panthers. If Carolina wins the game by four or more points, a $100 wager on the Panthers would come with a payout of $90.91. If Atlanta won the game outright or lost by three points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
Carolina Panthers Over/Unders aka Panthers Totals
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say the Saints play the Panthers and the over/under is set at 45 points. A wager on the over would require New Orleans and Carolina to score 46 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 44 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 45 points scored.
In 2020, Carolina scored the ninth-fewest points per game with 21.9. They allowed 25.1 points per game, the 15th-most in the league. The Panthers were slightly below .500 when it came to exceeding point totals, hitting the under in 56.2% of their games last season.
Carolina Panthers Moneylines
The moneyline is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:
- Buccaneers +220
- Panthers -260
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Carolina the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Panthers odds would mean every $26 bet nets $10. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Buccaneers moneyline was set at +220, meaning a $10 wager would profit $22.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Panthers moneyline and a -4.5 point spread, Carolina would need to win by five points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds.

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Christian McCaffrey 2021 rushing yards: 1,250
Let’s break it down a bit. McCaffrey averaged 75 rushing yards per game in 2020, down from the 86.7 he racked up in 2019. We’ll assume his average goes up to 80 yards per game in 2021. McCaffrey would be at 1,280 yards if he played all 16 games again, which he did from 2017-19. And don’t forget, the NFL added an extra regular season game. McCaffrey would comfortably exceed 1,250 yards in 17 games at his hypothetical pace, making this an easy decision.
Carolina Panthers Futures
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Carolina Panthers odds to win the NFC South
- Carolina Panthers odds to win the NFC
- Carolina Panthers odds to win the Super Bowl
- Christian McCaffrey’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year
- Jaycee Horn’s odds to win Defensive Rookie of the Year
If you think the Panthers are going to take a big step forward this year or that Christian McCaffrey will return to his 2019 form, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
