Panthers Playoff Chances, Odds & Prediction for 2022 NFL Season

Panthers Playoff Chances, Odds & Prediction for 2022 NFL Season


The Carolina Panthers feel like they're living in 1993's Groundhog Day because the 2021 NFL season saw them finish with just five wins for the third consecutive year. Something eventually has to give in Charlotte, NC and the Panthers are hoping they can finally take a step forward in 2022.

Forget about winning a Super Bowl: the Panthers' primary goal is to make the playoffs, something they've done once since 2016. It'll likely be another uphill battle, but the latest bettings odds give a better idea if it's an achievable goal.

Let's break down Carolina's playoff chances in 2022 using odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.

Panthers 2022 Season Prediction

Aside from games against the Falcons, Seahawks, New York Giants, and Detroit Lions, the Panthers will have their hands full with a large chunk of their opponents.

At the end of the day, Carolina's season will come down to how Sam Darnold plays under center. He was responsible for four of his team's five wins last year but certainly has a long way to go before he's treated like a legitimate threat.

I think six wins is certainly possible for the Panthers, but don't be surprised if they fall short of their already low expectations... again.
