NFL bettingThe Panthers vs Giants odds will pit two NFC heavyweights against each other on Monday night. Given that both veteran teams know what they have on their roster and know what they plan to accomplish this season, online betting sharps should look for the backups to play most of the game.

Panthers vs Giants odds: Giants -3

  • WHAT: NFL betting
  • WHEN: Monday, August 17th – 8:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: Giants Stadium – East Rutherford, NJ
  • PICK: Giants -3

Panthers vs Giants odds maker breakdown: Offense

When it comes to the quarterback and running back rotations, both teams are fairly even. The Giants have Eli Manning and David Carr, two players who have started many games in this league, while the Panthers have Jake Delhomme, Matt Moore and Josh McCown, another slew of signal callers who have had plenty of starting snaps.

At running back, the Panthers usually have more depth behind DeAngelo Williams, but it looks like Jonathan Stewart will miss the game. Mike Goodson and DeCori Birmingham will get a good share of carries. Meanwhile, the Giants have Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw, but neither figure to play a lot. Danny Ware and Andre Brown will see lots of carries.

Betting Edge: Even

Panthers vs Giants odds maker breakdown: Defense

In a regular game, NFL betting fans know that both teams would boast stellar defenses but as it stands, neither will run their starters out very long. The Panthers have a few backups who could make an impact, including second-round pick Everette Brown.

On the whole, though, the Giants have more defensive depth. Mathias Kiwanuka, Chris Canty and Rocky Bernard have all been starters in the NFL, but will see time against the Panthers’ second team.

Panthers vs Giants odds maker breakdown: Special Teams

Both teams are set at special teams so there should not be much of an advantage one way or another. Both teams have good kicking games and average return units.

Betting Edge: Even

Panthers vs Giants odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries

The Panthers have a couple of key injuries that will hurt them not only in this contest, but long term in the regular season as well. Expect them to be without Jonathan Stewart for this game, as he is still battling soreness in his Achilles. On the long-term scale, the Panthers will also be without defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu, who is out for the season. That leaves a massive hole on the Panthers defensive line.

Betting Edge: Giants

Panthers vs Giants betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

The sportsbook lists the Giants with the typical three-point spread but in a coin flip game, you may as well take a shot with the underdog. Neither team is particularly keen on winning this game so taking the points makes more sense than laying them.

STAN’S PICK: Panthers +3
