HomeCarolina Panthers Odds

The Carolina Panthers are in a bit of a tough position entering the 2024-25 season. After trading up with the Chicago Bears in the 2023 Draft to select quarterback Bryce Young, the Panthers are without a first round pick for the 2024 Draft. Making matters worse, Carolina finished with a league-worst 2-15 record, meaning Chicago now holds the first overall pick while the Panthers won’t pick until the second round unless they trade up again.

As the team continues to rebuild, Carolina will likely be a frequent betting underdog during the 2024-25 campaign. However, there is always betting value to be discovered even when the team isn’t performing well.

With North Carolina’s online sports betting launch off to a successful start, we’ve prepared this guide to Carolina Panthers odds to help you make more informed wagers on the team. We’ve also provided viewing and ticketing information, steps on how to bet on the Panthers, and a brief history of the franchise.

Which types of wagers are there for the Carolina Panthers?

There are many types of wagers you should be aware of before making wagers on the Carolina Panthers. Here are a few of the most popular options.

  • Spread bets: You may have heard the term “covering the spread” or “Panthers and the points” when discussing sports betting odds. The spread refers to the projected point differential between the Panthers and their opponent for a given game. For example, a sportsbook may list a line as Carolina Panthers +4.5. In this scenario, for a bet on the Panthers to win, Carolina would need to either win outright or lose by fewer than five points.
  • Over/under: Also called “totals” betting, over/under wagers are bets on the combined point total between the Panthers and their opponent, without regard to which team wins the game. Sportsbooks will set a hypothetical mark and adjust the line based on whether bettors are leaning heavily towards either end of the line.
  • Props: Prop bets will likely be a favorite among Panthers bettors during the upcoming season, especially if they’re used as part of a same game parlay. Like the over/under, props typically aren’t tied to the final score of the game. Some examples of Panthers-focused props could be how many passing touchdowns Bryce Young throws, whether Miles Sanders finished with over or under 65.5 rushing yards, Shaq Thompson’s total number of tackles, or whether the Panthers score a touchdown on their first offensive drive.

Do the Carolina Panthers have any partnerships with sportsbooks?

Yes, the Carolina Panthers have a partnership with FanDuel Sportsbook, in a deal that was announced shortly before North Carolina's online sports betting launch. FanDuel is now the "Official Sports Betting Partner of the Carolina Panthers," a title that will result in FanDuel signage across Bank of America stadium, Panthers images used in FanDuel promotions, and much more.

North Carolina’s other “Big Four” teams, the Carolina Hurricanes and Charlotte Hornets, have partnerships with Fanatics Sportsbook and bet365 Sportsbook, respectively.

The Carolina Panthers play their home games at Bank of America Stadium in uptown Charlotte. Originally “Ericsson Stadium” when the venue opened in 1996, Bank of America purchased the naming rights in 2004. The stadium is also home to FC Charlotte (Major League Soccer) and the annual Duke’s Mayo Bowl for college football.

History of the Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers don’t have the same lengthy history as several other NFL franchises, but they have already made multiple Super Bowl appearances. Here are some of the key moments in the team timeline that fans should know.

  • 1987: Entrepreneur Jerry Richardson announces his bid to bring an NFL expansion franchise to the Carolinas. Richardson helped facilitate several exhibition games in the late 1980s and early 1990s to show the interest and popularity of football leading to a formal application for a team in 1991.
  • 1993: The NFL owners unanimously approve the Carolina Panthers as the league’s 29th franchise.
  • 1995: The Carolina Panthers first take the field, playing home games at Memorial Stadium in Clemson, SC while awaiting the construction of Ericsson Stadium. While the team finished fourth in the NFC West in their inaugural season, the 7-9 record was still commendable as an expansion team.
  • 1996-97: Carolina wins its first division title with a 12-4 record and recorded its first playoff win with a 26-17 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round of the playoffs. However, the Panthers lost the NFC Championship to the Green Bay Packers, who would go on to win the Super Bowl that year.
  • 2002: After a dismal 1-15 season, the Panthers selected defensive end and North Carolina native Julius Peppers with the second overall pick. Peppers would win Defensive Rookie of the Year honors and would put together a Hall of Fame career with the Panthers, Chicago Bears, and Packers (inducted in 2024).
  • 2003-04: The Panthers win the NFC South title and defeat the Cowboys, St. Louis Rams, and Philadelphia Eagles en route to their first Super Bowl appearance against the New England Patriots. Carolina was able to keep things close throughout much of the game, with wide receiver Ricky Proehl scoring a touchdown with 1:08 remaining in regulation to tie the game, but Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri clinch the win for New England with a 41-yard field goal with four second left to end the Panthers’ season. The game is considered one of the best Super Bowls of all time.
  • 2011: Following another down year (2-14 record), Carolina drafts Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Cam Newton to become the future of the franchise. Newton was known for his strong arm and aggressive running style and won the Offensive Rookie of the Year award in the 2011-12 season.
  • 2015: Carolina nearly accomplished a perfect regular season with a 15-1 record, the sole loss coming on the road in Week 16 against the Atlanta Falcons. The Panthers advanced to Super Bowl 50 against the Denver Broncos, but Carolina never held the lead and struggled to move the ball against Denver’s impressive defense.
  • 2023: Carolina sends wide receiver D.J. Moore, first and second round picks in the 2023 Draft, a first round pick in the 2024 Draft, and a second round pick in the 2025 Draft to the Chicago Bears for the first overall pick in the 2023 Draft. The Panthers used this pick to select Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, who won the National Championship in 2020 and a Heisman Trophy in 2021. Carolina finished with a 2-15 record during the 2023-24 regular season, effectively delaying the Bears’ first overall selection by a year while sending a significant return to Chicago.
