The Vikings have the explosive Adrian Peterson while the Panthers have All-Pro receiver Steve Smith. This will be the first action for Smith this season because he missed the first two games due to suspension. Here is a look at this Week 3 NFL football betting matchup.
NFL betting odds have the Vikings favored in this matchup but the Panthers have already shown they can compete on the road. They took out the San Diego Chargers in Week 1 as a big NFL football betting underdog. Carolina looks to be a dangerous foe for any team with quarterback Jake Delhomme and Steve Smith according to NFL betting experts. They also look to be improved defensively with Julius Peppers getting back to his All-Pro form according to NFL football betting experts.
NFL betting stats show that Minnesota has a much improved defense as well. They picked up Jared Allen from the Chiefs in the off-season according to NFL betting information and his addition gives Minnesota a very dominant defensive front according to NFL betting experts. Whether or not Delhomme gets time to throw could decide the outcome of this NFL betting matchup.
The Vikings have Peterson on offense and a suspect quarterback in Tarvaris Jackson. If the Vikings can open up the offense a little bit and Jackson is able to hit open receivers against Carolina in this game they may be able to cover the NFL betting number. If not, the Panthers should hang close and have a chance to win versus the NFL betting pointspread. Carolina has an excellent kicker in John Kasay who already has impacted the NFL betting number this season. Minnesota also has an excellent kicker in Ryan Longwell and he has continually impacted NFL betting results throughout his career. Carolina is 3-4 straight up and 4-3 ATS in the last seven meetings between the two teams. At Minnesota the Panthers are 2-4 SU and 3-3 ATS. Five of the seven games went under the total.
This NFL betting matchup could be one of the most entertaining in NFL Week 3. Check out the NFL football betting odds on this game between the Carolina Panthers and Minnesota Vikings and enjoy the action.
