The Carolina Panthers beat the Broncos in Week 12 and then took a week off in Week 13, but bettors must have overlooked their dominating win over Denver as the Panthers are 6-point underdogs against the Seahawks heading into Week 14, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The plus/minus is currently set at 43.5 points.
The Panthers are 4-8 and tied for last in the NFC South, and the 7-5 Seahawks are in second place in the NFC West, so I can see why bettors would favor Seattle in this one. The Panthers are also traveling across the country after being away for a week, so it’s hardly a surprise to see the Seahawks favored here.
The Seahawks are coming off a victory over the Rams in Week 13 and are doing better than anyone expected after trading Russell Wilson to the Broncos. The Panthers are 1-8 this season against teams outside the NFC South, and they’ve lost the last three straight games to Seattle, so there’s a good chance Panthers fans will be disappointed after the end of the season. this one.
