What are some of the best alternate bets available when the Carolina Panthers take on the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium?

Failure is simply not an option for the Carolina Panthers this weekend. Despite the team’s concerning three-game losing run after such an impressive start, Sunday’s trip to the New York Giants seems to be the perfect opportunity for Matt Rhule and his players to get their 2021 season back on track.

The Giants are currently going through some injury complications – especially on offense. Saquon Barkley, Kenny Golladay, and Kadarius Toney are out of the contest, with stud left tackle Andrew Thomas placed on the reserve/injured list earlier this week.

Carolina will also be without some key figures such as Christian McCaffrey, Shaq Thompson, and Stephon Gilmore. But they are favored by 3.0 points on the road according to the latest odds from WynnBET and if the Panthers cannot win this one, it’s going to come with some substantial ramifications.

The stakes are high. For anyone looking to make a wager on the game, here are our three best alternate bets in Week 7.

Carolina Panthers over 10.5 points (first half)

The Panthers will be hurting from last weekend’s disappointing loss against the Minnesota Vikings. However, their comeback late in the contest can at least provide them with some sense of optimism even if the overall outcome didn’t go their way.

Carolina has come out hot versus inferior opposition this season, led by a defense that has plenty of talent. If the same happens again at MetLife Stadium, it wouldn’t be the biggest shock in the world to see them get out in front early.

With this in mind, picking the Panthers to score more than 10.5 points in the first half at +100 (bet $100 to win $100), seems like a solid bet to us.
