In 2017 the Carolina Panthers finished 11-5, but lost to the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. Vegas projected the Panthers to take a step back and set the win total at 8 wins. The Carolina Panthers 2018 season was on fire as they started the season 6-2, but then Cam Newton suffered a shoulder injury and wasn’t the same for the rest of the season as the Panthers went 1-7 in their last eight games and failed to surpass or match the 8 game win total set by Vegas. Cam Newton led the team in passing with 3,395 yards for 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions which resulted in a 94.2 quarterback rating. Newton also added another 488 yards rushing and 4 rushing touchdowns.

Christian McCaffrey led the team in rushing with 1,098 yards and 7 touchdowns. McCaffrey also led the team in receiving with 107 receptions for 867 yards and 6 touchdowns. McCaffrey had a huge season surpassing 1,900 total yards of offense and breaking the record of most receptions in a season by a running back, but still failed to make the Pro Bowl. The Panthers did have three players make the Pro Bowl however as Luke Kuechly, Trai Turner and Kawann Short all made the Pro Bowl this season. This article will examine how the Panthers did against the spread as well as how they did in the over/under points. We’ll begin by looking at the against the spread record for the Panthers.

Panthers Against the Spread

The Carolina Panthers went 7-9 against the spread this season which resulted in a 43.75% winning percentage against the spread, but if someone bet against the Panthers they would’ve had a marginally profitable season with a winning percentage of 56.25%. The Panthers were 5-3 against the spread at home which would’ve been a profitable season for bettors who took the Panthers at home with a 62.5% winning percentage, but betting against the Panthers at home resulted in a 37.5 winning percentage.

Carolina was 2-6 against the spread on the road which resulted in a 25% winning percentage against the spread, but would’ve been profitable for any bettor who bet against the Panthers on the road with a 75% winning percentage. Carolina was 3-6 against the spread as a favorite which resulted in a 33.33% winning percentage when taking them as a favorite, but a 66.66% winning percentage when betting against them as a favorite which would’ve been profitable. The Panthers were 4-3 against the spread as an underdog which resulted in a 57% winning percentage which would’ve been marginally profitable and would’ve resulted in a loss when betting against them as an underdog with a 43% winning percentage. For bettors who bet against the Panthers in every game, when they played at home, bet against them on the road, against them as a favorite and on them as an underdog they would’ve had a profitable season. Let’s take a look at the Panthers point total record next.

Panthers Point Total Record

The total went 8-8 in the Panthers game this season making it a loss whether someone bet on the over or under for all of the Panthers games this season. The over hit in five of the eight home games for the Panthers resulting in a 62.5% winning percentage versus betting on the under which resulted in a 37.5%. The under hit in five of the eight road games for Carolina this season which resulted in a 62.5% winning percentage versus a 37.5% winning percentage for anyone taking the over in the road games for the Panthers. Bettors would’ve been profitable betting the over in the home games for the Panthers as well as the under in the road games this season.
