The Panthers have experienced a bump in betting odds after adding quarterback Baker Mayfield to the roster.

Via PointsBet, the Panthers have seen their odds to win the NFC South move from +1200 to +1000. Their chances to win the Super Bowl also have shifted from +12500 to +1000.

Carolina’s odds to win the NFC, however, haven’t changed. They’re still at +5000.

Mayfield definitely constitutes an upgrade over Sam Darnold. The challenge becomes getting Mayfield ready to go, starting with a Week One visit from Mayfield’s former team, the Browns.

The NFC is generally wide open, with a small handful of elite teams and, basically, everyone else. Mayfield’s presence could be enough to make a big difference, if he stays healthy. It would help if running back Christian McCaffrey stays healthy, too.

  1. Oh, please. For a Browns’ QB he was the best in years. For the NFL, he wouldn’t beat out Taylor Heinicke on the list of upside potential.

  2. With all due respect to Baker, the odds on a SB win for this disfuctional mess went from a snowballs chance in hell to a snowcone in the Sahara.
