Giants at Panthers NFL Thursday Night Football Handicapping

Giants Need Better All Around Play from Opening Kickoff

Defending Super Bowl champion New York has struggled in its first two games of the season despite having a 1-1 record. Last week, in a 41-34 win over Tampa Bay, the Giants had to outscore the Buccaneers 25-7 in the fourth quarter to seal the victory. Eli Manning threw three interceptions in the first half but finished the day with 510 yards passing, the second-best total in franchise history.

Panthers Looking for Consistency After First Win of Season

Carolina got its first win last week when it defeated New Orleans 35-27 at home. Cam Newton threw for one touchdown and ran for one in the win. Carolina lost its season-opening game to Tampa Bay by a score of 16-10 in a game that saw the Panthers rush for only 10 yards as a team. The Panthers will need more consistent play from its offense this week if it wishes to knock off the Giants for win number two.

In a game featuring two high-flying offenses, top online sportsbooks such as the one at Topbet.eu has the Giants as +1 (-105) favorites over the host Panthers. Place your bet for the Giants over the Panthers in this game that should be dominated by offensive play.
