- Carolina proved one of the top under teams in the NFL.
- The Panthers performed much better straight up & against the spread at home.
- The Panthers proved very strong in the first and third quarters.
Following their disappointing 2-15 season in 2023-24, here’s a look at how the Carolina Panthers performed in relation to NFL betting lines.
A mid-season coaching change proved the biggest storyline of the Panthers’ season, which included a winless road record and struggles from Bryce Young.
That said, here’s a look at three profitable angles bettors should consider from Carolina’s latest campaign.
Panthers Road ATS Record
The Panthers really struggled to stay close on the road, finishing 2-7 ATS away from home.
Comparatively, the Panthers finished 3-4-1 ATS compared to the closing number at home.
Regarding the former metric, the one encouraging sign for prospective Panthers backers is that they performed better as the season progressed.
After starting 0-4 ATS away from home, Carolina closed the season 2-3 ATS in their final five road games.
Panthers Profitable in First & Third Quarter
Give the Panthers credit for starting strong early before fading late.
Carolina finished the regular season 11-6 against the spread in the first quarter, including 6-2 at home.
The Panthers also came out of the halftime break with positive results, going 11-6 ATS in the third quarter. Just at home, they were 6-2 ATS in the third quarter, the fourth-best mark in the NFL.
Where Carolina usually fell apart was right before halftime.
The Panthers finished 4-13 ATS in the second quarter – 1-7 at home, and 3-6 on the road. That qualifies as the only quarter where they finished below .500 for the season.
Panthers Profitable to Under, Especially in Divisional Games
Largely because of their ineffective offense under rookie quarterback Bryce Young, the Panthers finished as one of the NFL’s most reliable under bets.
Carolina saw 12 of their 17 games finish under the total this season. They were particularly profitable in divisional matchups, going 5-1 to the under in those six games.
Regarding their home/road splits, Panthers unders were much better at home.
Carolina was 7-1 to the under at home, including 3-0 within the division. The latter mark qualifies them as the second-best under team at home.
On the road, they were 5-4 to the under. Within this sample, the Panthers finished 2-1 to the under in road divisional games compared to 3-3 outside of it.
