Panthers Giants Betting – Giants Fail To Cover Against Stingy Panthers

Posted by Stan Simmons on 9/7/2010 5:34:33 PM

Sports betting players will be treated to a hard-hitting affair in Week 1 when Carolina faces the New York Giants, who were embarrassed by the Panthers in the last game at their old stadium. The Giants may be able to get their revenge with a win, but a scrappy Carolina defense will keep them from covering the sports betting spread.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Sunday, September 12th, 1:00 PM ET
  • Where: New Meadowlands Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
  • Pick: Carolina +7
  • What’s On The Line

    Both of these teams were 8-8 in 2009, so they’d love to get off to a good start this season. This is the first regular-season game in the New Meadowlands, and the Giants are hoping it’ll be more of a fortress than the old Giant Stadium, where they were 4-4 last year. The Panthers are moving on without Jake Delhomme as their starting quarterback, and the focus is going to be on their young pivots.

    Offensive Matchups: Panthers Giants Betting

    Matt Moore is the man in Carolina, but he spent the preseason getting pushed by rookie Jimmy Clausen, although neither was all that great. They also had to play the preseason without receiver Steve Smith, who broke his arm in the summer. That means that the two-headed monster of DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart coming out of the backfield may be their best shot at winning this game. Stewart tore up the Giants for 206 yards last year, so look for him to get a lot of work.

    The key to the Giants’ offense in 2010 won’t be Eli Manning or his trio of young receivers, led by Steve Smith (that’s right, another Steve Smith). The key is a running game that struggled last year, and more specifically, Brandon Jacobs. The bruising running back was banged up last year and he was disappointing. When Jacobs is on form, he softens the opposing defense, and that allows Manning to bring out the play-action game.

    Defensive Matchups: Panthers Giants Betting

    NFL betting players are banking on the Panthers’ defense to be solid as the offense is going to go through some growing pains. Jon Beason was moved to the weak side to make up for an injured Thomas Davis, while Dan O’Connor is now in the middle. The Panthers are also deep at the ends, which will hopefully make up for the departed Julius Peppers. The defensive backs are fast, but they’ll be tested by the Giants’ receivers.

    The Giants’ defense was terrible down the stretch in 2009, and they had their problems in the preseason as well. They never had a defensive leader to replace the retired Antonio Pierce, and they’re still shaky at linebacker. Up front, Justin Tuck needs some help, preferably from Osi Umenyiora, who hasn’t been the same since his knee injury. At the back end, cornerback Corey Webster has been great in new coordinator Perry Fewell’s system, but the regular season is a different animal.

    Notable Injuries: Panthers Giants Betting

    Offensive tackle Jeff Otah (knee) isn’t recovered yet from offseason surgery, and it’s unlikely he’ll feature in this game.

    Webster (hand) and fellow corner Aaron Ross (foot) will likely play, while linebackers Phillip Dillard (hamstring) and Gerris Wilkinson (groin) probably won’t. Center Shaun O’Hara (ankle) is questionable.

    Outlook and Pick: Panthers Giants Betting

    The Giants are 7-point NFL betting favorites at home, and revenge will definitely factor into this game. The Panthers rolled to a 41-9 win in the finale at the old Giants Stadium, and you can bet that the Giants did not forget that. Moore was the quarterback that day, but that was when the team was transitioning from Delhomme. Now he’s the No.1 guy, and that takes a different mindset. The Giants’ defense, especially Tuck, were embarrassed by their lack of effort, and they’ll be in the Carolina backfield all day long. The problem is that the Carolina defense will keep the game close, which is why we’re picking them to keep the Giants covering in your online betting book.
