Carolina Panthers Player Stats
It was weird last year for the Carolina Panthers. The team released longtime quarterback Cam Newton, and star linebacker Luke Kuechly announced his retirement from football. General manager Marty Hurney hired new head coach Matt Rhule, but Hurney was subsequently fired in December. The Panthers had a tough year given all of the turmoil, finishing 5-11 overall and third in the NFC South.
Matt Rhule and his squad will look to start rebuilding this season behind newly acquired QB Sam Darnold, who will rely on weapons like DJ Moore and Christian McCaffrey. Oddsmakers are expecting a slightly better season, though pushing into the playoffs will be a challenging task.

Carolina Panthers Point Spreads
Despite the down season, the Panthers covered the spread at an impressive 56.2% rate. If you're unfamiliar, covering the spread refers to spread bets, which are wagers on the margin of victory in a game. They're the most common bet in the U.S. sports betting world, and you'll see them all over the homepages of sportsbooks on an NFL Sunday.
Here’s a brief example of a spread for a Panthers game:
- Panthers +3.5 (-110)
- Saints -3.5 (-110)
Favorites are designated with a minus sign (-), while underdogs have a plus sign (+) next to the spread number. That's important, as it shows which team is likely to win and affects how the spread bets work.
The Panthers are 3.5-point underdogs in the example above, which means a Panthers spread bet would win under a couple of conditions. It would cash out if the Panthers beat the Saints outright, but you'd also get paid if they lost by only three or fewer points. If the Saints won by four or more points, that side of the spread bet would cover cash.
Carolina Panthers Over/Unders
Over/under bets, also called totals in the betting industry, are wagers on the total number of points on the scoreboard at the end of the game. You can bet on a team's total, but the most common bet is on the game total -- the combined output by both squads.
Here's an example for the Panthers: Carolina is facing Atlanta, and the total is set at 46 points. You can take either side of that number as a bettor, which is the line formed by the sportsbook and how the bet is measured. If you thought the teams would combine for 50 points, you would bet the over, and you'd cash if the teams hit 47 or more points. An under bet, in contrast, would hit if the teams combined for just 45 or fewer points.
Carolina Panthers Moneylines
Another popular bet is like a spread bet, but the margin of victory is irrelevant. That's called a moneyline bet, which is a fancy term for a type of wager that's simply about which team will win the game. If it's a nail-biter or a blowout, it doesn't matter -- which team emerges victorious.
The odds can be weird to read but think of them in increments of $10 or $100. For example, let's say the moneyline is set at +210 against the Buccaneers: If you bet on that and thought the Panthers could win, you would net out $21 for every $10 bet on Carolina. And it's reverse with favorites, who will have minus odds: If the Panthers moneyline were at -140, you'd profit $10 for every $14 spent on the bet.
Christian McCaffrey has been perhaps the best fantasy football player over the last few years, and for a good reason. His dual ability as a rusher and receiver is precious, and the Panthers have relied on him to carry the offense given the QB uncertainty.
If player performance is your thing, you'll be interested in player props, which are wagers on how a single player will do in a stat. For example, some Panthers' props include McCaffrey to have over/under a set amount of rushing yards or DJ Moore to catch a touchdown pass.
Carolina Panthers Futures
Will the Panthers shock the world and upset the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers to win the NFC South? You can bet on that very thing if you're interested, and that type of bet is called a futures bet. That's a term for any wager that's settled at the end of the year.
Some other futures this season include the odds of them making or missing the playoffs, the odds of Christian McCaffrey leading the league in rushing, and more.
