MNF Recap: Underdog Bettors Clean Up On Panthers
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas for the underdog players who wagered on the Carolina Panthers vs. the Washington Redskins for Monday Night Football.
Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers easily covered the spread of 7 as they won outright as dogs getting +260 from online bookmakers. About 50% of wagers were on the Panthers ATS (against the spread).
However, the real damage was done as 60% of players cashed in on the +260 odds, meaning every $1,000 bet returned $2,600 in profit.
The game sailed under the posted total of 51 points with a final score of Carolina 26 and Washington 15. The public generally favors the over in primetime football games. About the only downside to this score is that no prize changed hands in SBR Forum's predict the score for pizza contest.
Newton may not have had the benefit of protection from officials as the narrative of the game once again was Newton on his back without yellow in sight, but that didn't prevent Panthers bettors from cashing in a handsome payday on the Panthers win.
