Vegas Says The Panthers Are Going 6-10, Again..

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.

Cool, still flying under the radar.

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.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
