Carolina Panthers 2016 Season Expert Predictions
The Carolina Panthers almost recorded a perfect 16-0 mark a year ago before ultimately falling short of fulfilling their championship hopes by losing Super Bowl 50 to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
Now, with Cam Newton and the loaded Panthers looking to go one step further than they did last season, let’s find out what lies in online betting store for the defending NFC champions.
Can Cam Newton And The Carolina Panthers Reach Super Bowl 51?
2016 Regular Season Win Total Odds
Over/Under 10.5 Wins
Analysis: The Carolina Panthers won’t lose many games in 2016, but I do think the Panthers will fall on the road at either New Orleans or Atlanta in a division stunner and at Seattle while losing at home against either Minnesota or Kansas and possibly both. Either way, Carolina easily reaches 11 wins to finish over their 2016 win total odds.
NFC South Division Odds
Analysis: Unless a rash of injuries befalls Cam Newton and at least two or three other significant starters, the Panthers are the easy pick to win the NFC South over their trio of mostly mediocre division rivals in Atlanta, New Orleans and Tampa Bay. Even at -300, the Panthers are an absolute lock here!
NFC Championship Odds
Analysis: I like Carolina’s chances of winning the NFC titles in consecutive seasons, just not as much as I like Seattle. The Panthers will be one of the top NFC title contenders, along with the Seahawks, Cardinals and possibly the Vikings and Packers. In the end, I’m going with Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. Still, at +550, the Panthers are offering a great return for a team that could make back-to-back Super Bowl appearances.
Super Bowl 51 Odds
Analysis: I see no reason why the Panthers aren’t worth a wager here as a value-packed +650 pick, but again, I like Seattle to win the NFC title in 2016. Still, I do believe the Panthers would beat any AFC Super Bowl participant should they reach Super Bowl 51.
Take the plunge as the Panthers could win it all this coming season.
