Will the Carolina Panthers make the 2020 NFL playoffs?
Yes: +400 | No: -556
The Panthers are coming off a last-place finish, going 5-11 in 2019. They have a new coach in Matt Rhule and a new QB in Teddy Bridgewater. A big problem is that they are in a division with the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, two of the three top favorites to win the NFC. Carolina still looks like a last-place team in the NFC South. The best bet, even though there is no value to it is, to go with NO (-556).

If you are looking at their schedule, you can probably pencil in two wins in the division. They will win one they probably shouldn't, because this is common in the NFC South. They have winnable games against the Washington Redskins, Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals, Las Vegas Raiders, Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos. All are at home except the Redskins. The Panthers can probably split those games. That puts them at five wins just splitting those winnable games and not stealing any wins against teams they aren't expected to beat.
Winning 0-4 games will be tempting with the value, but the most likely outcome is 5-8 (-250) for a $4 profit on a $10 bet.
How many games will the Carolina Panthers win in 2020? Exact number
The shortest odds for exact wins are five (+265) and six (+270). As mentioned before, getting two wins in the division is likely. Splitting the six "winnable" games is reasonable. The best bet here is FIVE (+265), but four (+375) and six (+270) are also worth looking at.
