Ravens vs Panthers odds maker breakdown: Offense

The Ravens offense is a decent unit and, although it lacks receiving weapons, it has plenty of depth in the backfield. With Ray Rice, Le’Ron McClain and Willis McGahee, the Ravens are stocked for this contest. The Panthers have given up 323 rushing yards on the ground in their first two preseason games.

For the Panthers, NFL betting fans know that they also have depth at the running back position, even with former first-round pick Jonathan Stewart out of the lineup. Rookie Mike Goodson has emerged as a solid option in the backfield. At quarterback, the Panthers have shown they can move the ball up and down the field with all of their quarterbacks, but they can’t seem to shake their mistakes. The Panthers have six turnovers in their first two preseason games.

Betting Edge: Ravens


Ravens vs Panthers odds maker breakdown: Defense

When it comes to defense these two teams don’t really compare. The Ravens have a ferocious defense and, even after the losses of Bart Scott and defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, it's maintained much swagger.

The Panthers have sustained some early season injuries to Jon Beason and Ma’ake Kemoeatu, which has hampered their production. As mentioned above, their run defense has been atrocious, allowing 323 rushing yards so far this preseason.

Betting Edge: Ravens

Ravens vs Panthers betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

The Panthers have a bunch of injuries already and they’ll be looking to make it out of this game without sustaining any more. Look for them to put up a bit of a fight in the early going but then fade off into the sunset. The Ravens defense should keep them under wraps and eventually lead the way to a win.
