Line for Thursday +1.5 Panthers?

Am I seeing this right, that the consensus is us getting +1.5 at BOA for Thursday night?

Any handicappers in here other than me (I am not great with spreads when my heart is involved)

Anyone who bets.... whats your thoughts on this spread? Since I feel like we will win and a lot of people will bet on NY..... feel like it's a decent play even if it jumps to 2 or 2.5

I think the public will definitely bet heavily on the Giants (guessing 80% or more) eventhough this is a home game for the Panthers...which is a good sign for the Panthers. Giants have a few key injuries that have taken this line down a point or so from what it was originally going to be. With that being said, I wouldn't touch this game with someone else's money so I sure wouldn't with my own. Tough game to call.

Putting them in a two-team, 6 point teaser isn't a bad idea, as that would get the spread to +7.5 and allow you to cross the key points of 3 and 7. Maybe with the Seahawks, who are currently +3.5 at home to GB (Seattle is freakishly good as home dogs ATS, and upping the spread to +9.5 is pretty enticing).

But like I said in the other thread, I bet on the Panthers -2.5 vs the Bucs and the Pantherslost, then didn't bet either way on the Saints game and we won, so I'm not betting on Panthers games anymore this season lol.

It wouldn't be a very good line if 80% of people bet on one team. And you are betting against the line not on one team to win per se.

I disagree.... .

Lines aren't always meant to be near the 50% mark. For example, 78% of the public had the Giants giving 8.5 to the Bucs, 88% had the Pats giving 13.5 to the Cardinals, and 83% took the Saints giving -2.5 to the Panthers. Vegas made huge money on those three games alone and they enticed people to bet a certain way. The same thing is happening with this line IMO.

Right now the betting volume for the Giants -1.5 againts the Panthers is around the 75% in favor of people taking the Giants and giving the points. 3 out of every 4 bets is for the Giants. That is a good sign that Vegas wants people to bet the Giants because they won't cover that spread and most likely won't win.

Only thing I'll bet on with the Panthers is

A) Over/Unders (I took the 51.5 last week and never looked back)

B) Against them when they suck a lot worse than people think, which has been often in the past few years.

I left money in my "account" that I won on the Superbowl and did something I never ever do but I couldn't pass up. Tried to double it by putting it all on the Eagles in week one -9.5 against the Browns. I never, ever bet on my team unless it is an over/under and that one bit me just like I knew it would before I ever placed it. Lost it all and then some. So stupid.

Only game i ever wanted to bet on was raiders vs texans last year andhad no idea how to actually do it. There was no way the NFL was gonna let them lose the week Al Davis died.

You honestly think the NFL actively participates in the criminal activty of fixing games for a dead person who they didn't even like when he was alive?
