The Carolina Panthers finished a game under the break even point last year, coming home with a 7-9 record, but the team has made some big improvements since its 2-14 finish in 2010. Unfortunately for Carolina, its division houses two really good teams in Atlanta and New Orleans, a reality which could keep the Panthers from advancing up the conference food chain. Offshore odds makers 5Dimes is expecting a .500 or better record from the Panthers this season with Carolina favored at -125 odds to win Over seven games; however, Cam Newton and company are drawing +650 odds to win the NFC South ($100 wins $650) and +3800 odds to win the NFC Championship. The latest 2014 Super Bowl Odds at the online book have the Panthers listed at +9000 odds to win the Lombardi Trophy.
Cantor Gaming is not as optimistic about the Panthers ability to produce an 8-8 or better record. The Vegas odds maker, which issued early NFL game lines in May, has Carolina favored in just five of its 15 lined games. The Panthers brutal schedule, no doubt, played a huge part in those prognostications as they face teams like the Seahawks, Giants, 49ers, Vikings, and Patriots outside division play.
