Green Bay Packers vs. Carolina Panthers Betting Odds

The Green Bay Packers vs. Carolina Panthers betting odds had Green Bay as the big -10.5 favorite on the road.   A mighty big line for a road game if you ask us. 

Sportsbook.com Line & Total: Green Bay -10 & 46.5

Opening Line & Total: GB -10.5 & 45

The Panthers gained some momentum despite a Week 1 road loss, but the Packers are poised to bring that to a halt when they visit Carolina on Sunday.

Coming off their season-opening Thursday night win over New Orleans, the Packers will be well-rested and ready. Green Bay was 8-4 ATS away from home last season, while the Panthers were just 2-6 ATS at home. Carolina was also 0-10 SU and 1-9 ATS against teams that finished 2010 with a winning record. While QB Cam Newton threw for 422 yards in his first career start, the Green Bay pass defense includes an elite pass rush and three outstanding cornerbacks, far superior to the undermanned defense Newton saw in Arizona. And the Carolina D will be shorthanded with LB Jon Beason, the leader of the unit, out for the year with a torn Achilles.

The Packers have three extra days of rest to get ready for this game. Reigning Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers led Green Bay to a 42-34 win over New Orleans by throwing for 312 yards and three scores. The Pack also provided a solid ground game with 103 yards on 27 carries. The defense did not fare too well against Drew Brees and the Saints, surrendering nearly 400 passing yards. They’re in jeopardy of allowing another chunk of yardage through the air with CB Tramon Williams questionable with a shoulder injury. FS Nick Collins (wrist) is expected to play, but Green Bay’s defensive depth could suffer as DE Mike Neal (knee), LBs Frank Zombo (shoulder) and Vic So’oto (back) and CB Davon House (ankle) are all questionable.

Panthers QB Cam Newton made a loud NFL debut against Arizona, hooking up for 178 of his yards and both TD passes to Steve Smith. The ground game that was supposed to be much improved this year with Newton’s legs and a healthy DeAngelo Williams returning to the team, garnered a paltry 74 yards on 27 carries (2.7 YPC). In addition to Beason going on IR, the Panthers could be without CB Josh Thomas (thigh) and backups QB Jimmy Clausen (undisclosed) and WR Kealoha Pilares (ankle). The Panthers were 0-7 ATS after a road loss in 2010.
