What are the best prop bets for the Carolina Panthers as they get set to take on the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium for Thursday Night Football?

Expectations are high for the Carolina Panthers ahead of their Week 3 game at the Houston Texans. Things couldn’t have gone much better for Matt Rhule’s men over the first two weeks, with outstanding victories against the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints coming with plenty of reasons to be encouraged.

Of course, this counts for nothing if the Panthers cannot build on these displays at the Texans, who were beaten by the Cleveland Browns in Week 2 and will be without starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor with a hamstring injury.

Rookie Davis Mills has the unenviable task of trying to overcome a formidable Carolina defense that’s taken the NFL by storm so far. Defensive coordinator Phil Snow is sure to have something special in store for the Stanford product, especially if one considers the success achieved by the Panthers against first-year-pro Zach Wilson against the Jets.

With NFL betting becoming more influential than ever, here are our three best prop bets for anyone looking to make a Thursday Night Football wager.

Carolina Panthers -4.0 spread at halftime (-120)

The Panthers have been dominant over the first half of their opening two games. This has seen them go into the interval with 16-0 and 17-0 advantages over the Jets and Saints that they were able to sustain after the break.

Even though Carolina is on the road, the Texans don’t have much in the way of quality and this represents another tremendous chance to get out to an insurmountable lead once again.

WynnBET currently has the Panthers at -4.0 at -120 for the first half, (bet $120 to win $100), which seems like a pretty good bet to us.
