Panthers vs Packers Week 15 Betting Picks: Lines
|Team||Point Spread||Moneyline||Over/Under||Team Total|
Panthers +320 | Packers -400
The Panthers have struggled since a three-game winning streak earlier in the year. The team has dropped seven of their last eight games. The Packers are rolling. Rodgers has played himself squarely into the NFL MVP race, and Davante Adams and Aaron Jones are two of the best skill position players in the league. The pick feels like an easy one, the Packers should win this game with ease.
Pick: Packers to win
Point Spread: Packers -8½
The NFL odds for this one feel right. The Panthers defense is ranked 28th, according to PFF, while Green Bay’s offense is ranked first. That is a serious disparity that cannot be ignored. Both teams have played well against the spread this year. The Packers are 8-5 ATS while Carolina is 7-6. Still, I think Green Bay, at home, can cover this game and put up big points in the process.
Pick: Packers to cover
This game is one of my favorite over picks of the entire weekend. The Panthers’ strength, running the ball, lines up nicely with the Packers’ biggest deficiency on the defensive side. Carolina should be able to move the ball and score a few touchdowns.
Meanwhile, the Packers offense is as explosive as it gets, and the Panthers offer little to no resistance on defense. This is one of the weakest defenses in the entire NFL, and the Packers are averaging 31.5 points per game. I like the over at 51½, and I’m also extremely interested in the Packers team total at 30 points.
Panthers vs Packers Week 15 Betting Pick: Over 51½
Final score: Packers 42, Panthers 21

As we touched on, the Packers have the significant advantage in this one. With a high expected point total, it’s best to zero in on Green Bay in this game. Both the run game and the passing game should find success against this poor Carolina defense.
Let’s take a look at some NFL betting props for the game.
First Score of the Game
This becomes a bet on the coin toss, but I like Green Bay to establish its dominance through the air immediately. The question becomes whether they possess the ball first, but even if they don’t, I like the value of +120 for the Packers to score first with a touchdown.
Total TDs In The Game
Over 5½ -125
This feels like a great value pick: Over 5½ touchdowns scored. The disparity between Carolina’s defense and Green Bay’s offense has been established, and there’s strong logic in the over hitting in this Saturday night game. The Packers could surpass this number on their own.
First Half Total TDs Scored
Over 2½ TDs -160
In a game with a high over/under, it can become a smart strategy with your NFL picks to take the overs when you see them. This is a conservative number for a game with such a high projected points total. Without meaning to sound repetitive, Green Bay is going to have a lot of offensive success against the Panthers this weekend.
