Betting market: After opening as three-point favorites, the Panthers moved up to -4 within a half hour. But by Monday morning, they were back to -3 (find updated odds and data here).

The Seahawks are getting a slight majority of bets, but the money is on Carolina at a 2-to-1 clip, which has helped keep this spread glued to the key number of 3. — Mark Gallant

Trends to know: In Russell Wilson’s career, he is 17-7-2 against the spread as an underdog in the regular season, but over the past two seasons he is just 6-5-1 ATS when getting points. — John Ewing

As great as Wilson has been as an underdog in his career, Cam Newton is flirting with the same type of success at home against quality opponents.

According to our Bet Labs data, Newton is 21-12 ATS (63.6%), profiting bettors 7.8 units, when playing teams with a positive point differential at home, making him the NFL’s third-most profitable quarterback in this spot.

When Newton enters these games off of a loss, he has gone 10-4 ATS, including 5-1 ATS since 2015.
