Despite the Carolina Panthers getting healthier (hopefully) on defense and moving the offense forward in Year 2 of the Cam Newton Experience, Vegas is predicting another 6-10 record for the Panthers.



Week 1: Carolina Panthers (+3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Week 2: New Orleans Saints* (-2.5) at Carolina Panthers
Week 3: New York Giants (PICK) at Carolina Panthers
Week 4: Carolina Panthers (+4.5) at Atlanta Falcons
Week 5: Seattle Seahawks (+3.5) at Carolina Panthers
Week 6: Bye
Week 7: Dallas Cowboys (+1) at Carolina Panthers
Week 8: Carolina Panthers (+4) at Chicago Bears
Week 9: Carolina Panthers (+1) at Washington Redskins
Week 10: Denver Broncos (PICK) at Carolina Panthers
Week 11: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+6) at Carolina Panthers
Week 12: Carolina Panthers (+7) at Philadelphia Eagles
Week 13: Carolina Panthers (+3) at Kansas City Chiefs
Week 14: Atlanta Falcons (+1) at Carolina Panthers
Week 15: Carolina Panthers (+5.5) at San Diego Chargers
Week 16: Oakland Raiders (+4.5) at Carolina Panthers
Week 17: Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints* (Note: No line is given for Week 16 so I am assuming the Saints* will be favored in New Orleans after being favored by in Week 2 in Carolina.)



At worst I see them going 8-8. But 6-10? Again? Unless there's some massive injuries to key players I don't see that happening.

As we discussed in the other thread, betting lines and spreads are not designed to predict who is going to win or lose. They are designed to ensure that betting is equally distributed between both teams by favoring one or the other. As the betting develops, they move up or down to equalize the betting so that no matter who wins, Vegas makes money. Obviously they are correlated to who they think are the stronger or weaker teams based on the off-season or draft, but do change, sometimes substantially.

A lot of those are some pretty close spreads. That says Vegas doesn't know what to think of the Panthers yet.

I feel pretty confident, with no major injuries, we have a winning season.

For all you guys that said we will be 10-6 its time to put your money where your mouth is.I think I am putting money on the Seattle game at the very least.Look at the spread difference in the two Tampa games.....does not make alot of sense

Yea much will have to do with who comes back healthy..ie Beason,Davis Otah Edwards and keeping everyone healthy.One study showed we have been 30th and 31st in the league based on a weighted average of injuries.

Those spreads aren't a prediction of what a teams record will be they are a way to get early money in on bets.

I'm sticking by my 6-8 win total. One, we have a beast ass schedule and two, i just think we are still a year away.

The biggest joke is the 40-1 to win the Superbowl, on the same line as Seattle and Miami, even after all the Saints* issues, and us literally handing the Falcons two games last year. A $25 bet into $1,000 is insane for the greatest rookie to ever play the game (therefore logically the likely greatest to ever play the game) in his first full offseason, the best backfield in the league, and a healthy D.

So put down your money. It's a great opportunity, not a joke.
