Bet the Over on Carolina Panthers Win Total

The Carolina Panthers are my NFC sleeper team. The offensive line is bad, but the rest of the offense is loaded with weapons. Christian McCaffrey is an All-Pro caliber running back, and DJ Moore, Robby Anderson, and Terrace Marshall form a terrific passing attack. I have confidence in Joe Brady's offensive play-calling and Matt Rhule's rebuilding abilities as a head coach. If Sam Darnold plays well, this team should be above-average in 2021. Last year, the Panthers played the 2nd toughest schedule in the league and went just 3-8 in one-score games, according to Sharp Football Analysis. They also got screwed in the kicking game: opposing kickers hit a league-leading 93.5% of their kicks vs Carolina. This year, one should expect regression to mean in those statistics. In 2021, the Panthers also have one key advantage: rest. The Panthers have the NFL's best rest advantage this season. They will be far-more rested as a team than their opponents . Playing in a mostly rebuilding division doesn't hurt, either. I'm bullish on Carolina, and you should be, too. The Panthers should find success its first five games (Jets, Saints, @Texans, @Cowboys, Eagles). The offense should perform well, and the young defense should make a considerable jump this season. First-round pick Jaycee Horn is one of the top cornerbacks to get drafted in recent years. DT Derrick Brown and S Jeremy Chinn should improve off their rookie campaigns. DE Brian Burns is a star in the making. Watch out for Carolina this season. If Sam Darnold lives up to his potential, this team could threaten to post double-digit wins.


Best Bet: Panthers over 7.5 wins (+100)
