After Setting Rookie Record, Cam Newton Faces Reigning Champs

Betting on Green Bay Football

Where exactly the Carolina Panthers stand a year after fumbling to a league-worst 2-14 record is a mystery, but at least they have a standout first-year quarterback to entertain them while they find out.

This Sunday, coming off a record-setting rookie debut, Panthers QB Cam Newton will look to follow up a 422-yard performance against a slightly more intimidating opponent than last week’s Arizona Cardinals: the reigning champion Green Bay Packers.

As far as the NFL betting lines are concerned, Newton’s dazzling display behind center is little more than an afterthought when it comes to the Week 2 tilt with the Pack. Despite playing hosts on the weekend, Carolina will have a +10.5 spread to contend with in order to payout.

With negligible odds of winning the Super Bowl and no guarantee that Newton will match, let alone exceed, his 24 for 37, three touchdown night (one rushing), all eyes will be on Green Bay as a true measuring stick for the young quarterback.

If NFL odds junkies are looking for player props to bet on this season, it’ll be hard not to consider the athletic Heisman winner out of Auburn, but the jury is still out on whether his Week 1 is a sign of things to come.
