Football betting odds have seen the Carolina Panthers as underdogs most of the time this season.
That is not likely to change in football lines since Carolina is sticking with Jake Delhomme as the starting quarterback even though he leads the NFL in interceptions with 13.
Football betting odds have Carolina a big underdog this week as they travel to Arizona in a rematch of last year’s NFC Playoff matchup. Delhomme was horrible last season in the football betting odds playoffs against Arizona as he threw five interceptions. He is starting this week in football betting odds though as head coach John Fox still believes that Delhomme is his best option.
Football betting odds have Delhomme throwing 15 interceptions and losing two fumbles this season. He has only thrown four TD passes as the Panthers are 2-4 this football lines season. Delhomme threw three interceptions last week in the football betting odds loss to Buffalo. Fox could be on his way out of Carolina so it is interesting that he is sticking with Delhomme over backups Matt Moore and A.J. Feeley. "The 48-hour rule, you go back and you look and there’s no question that we’ve struggled in that area," Fox said. "Going through and looking at some our mishaps, I don’t think it’s one guy. I still think he gives us the best chance to win."
Last year in the regular season in football betting odds Delhomme was very good but in the playoffs against Arizona he was awful and things haven’t gotten any better this season. The Panthers for some inexplicable reason gave Delhomme an extension in the football lines off-season so they are paying him even more money and getting worse production. Going back to last season in football betting odds, Delhomme has 18 interceptions in seven games. He has a 56.5 passer rating as football betting odds stats show. His confidence seems to be gone. "Would I sit here and tell you it’s through the roof? I mean, that would be a lie," Delhomme said. "I still do have a lot of confidence, but it’s frustrating. A couple plays a game are just not … And that’s something you work on, that ‘forget it’ mentality."
It would be hard to forget how bad Delhomme has been particularly last year in football betting odds against Arizona. Not many people believe Carolina has much of a chance this week in NFL lines at Arizona. The Cardinals are 10-point home favorites in NFL betting odds against the Panthers.
