Why Bet on the Carolina Panthers?
The Panthers’ form dipped after the first three weeks and are now on a three-game losing streak. Their most recent loss happened in the hands of the Vikings. The Cardiac Cats scored 28 points in two of the three losses and were no more than 8 points behind in all three defeats.
On offense, the Panthers average 23.8 points (16th) and 353.8 yards per game (18th) this season. They completed three games where they scored 24 points or more. In addition, they average a middle-of-the-road 244.3 pass yards per game (15th). They are by no means the most aggressive on offense but can put things to good use against a weaker Giants defense.
Head coach Matt Rhule sets his team apart by employing some of the best defensive measures in the league. They allow an average of 20.2 points (6th) and 308.3 yards per game (3rd). Furthermore, they give up 196.8 passing yards per game (2nd), which should contest a Giants team that averages 244.3 yards per game (15th).
The Panthers might be without wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. (concussion), fullback Giovanni Ricci (concussion), and weakside linebacker Shaq Thompson (foot). All three players are on the questionable list this weekend due to preceding injuries.
Why Bet on the New York Giants?
Meanwhile, the Giants are eager to break their two-game winning streak. In Week 5 and Week 6, they lost by 38 points or more. Defensively, they held the Falcons to less than 17 points at home in Week 3. The talent is there, but consistency and health are big issues for the team. Currently, the Giants average 29.5 opponent points (29th) and 401.3 opponent yards per game (27th).
The Giants aren’t a high-scoring team and are yet to complete a 30-plus point game in the season. In their last two contests, they scored a total of 31 points. This brings their average points per game to 19.0 (27th). Nonetheless, the team still produces 360.7 yards per game (16th). As for the rushing, the Big Blue documents an underwhelming 3.9 yards per rush (22nd), but don’t be surprised if Devontae Booker finds success out of the backfield.
The Giants can also just let Daniel Jones air it out. With a slight advantage in yards per pass 6.9 (17th) versus the Panthers’ 6.5 (24th), this might present several openings along the way.
Three offensive starters are listed as questionable for the Giants, including running back Saquon Barkley (ankle), wide receiver Kenny Golladay (knee), and left guard Ben Bredeson (hand).

Panthers vs. Giants Expert Betting Predictions
The reality is that the Panthers are the better team here. They have won against tougher competition since the start of the season. However, their form plays a huge role in this one following a three-game losing streak. It’s tough to play the road team against a team craving for a win, and we anticipate a neck-and-neck clash. The Giants, on the other hand, have to make the most of home-field advantage here. It’s still possible for the team to cover the spread, but they have to be at their very best to secure the win this Sunday.
