I calculate the Panthers playoff picture using the implied probability of the team's odds to make the postseason. You'll find playoff odds for every NFL team posted by the top Carolina sportsbooks. Converting the Panthers' current odds of +145 to make the playoffs provided the 40.8% chance highlighted above after removing the house edge.

Bookmakers also offer a market on Carolina's chances to miss the playoffs. Subtracting the team's chances to make the playoffs gave us the 59.2% chance to miss the postseason. The Panthers chances of winning the Super Bowl sit at just 1.96%, one of the lowest chances in the league. The Panthers have just a 4.35% chance to win the NFC, but they have a 26.7% chance to win their division.

Outside of converting odds to implied probability, I track the team's Football Power Index or FPI (ESPN) and their chances according to the New York Times Postseason Simulator. Neither ESPN nor the Times have posted updated versions but we expect these to be live by the time the season starts.

Where Can I Bet on the Carolina Panthers to Make the Playoffs?

You can bet on the Panthers to make or miss the playoffs through DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook in legal states. Other major sportsbooks should release odds on NFL teams to make or miss the playoffs, including platforms like BetMGM and Caesars.

The odds of the Panthers making the playoffs at other sportsbooks will likely be long, and with anything possible in an NFL season, you may find value as a sleeper pick especially in a division where the Buccaneers, Saints and Falcons all have major question marks. The NFC South is theoretically the best division for the Panthers to be able to win among all eight NFL conferences.

Once online and mobile sports betting is legalized in the state, be sure to keep an eye out for North Carolina sportsbook promos and bonuses, which can give you extra bankroll for NFL futures bets and more.

Looking Ahead: Panthers Playoff Picture

The Carolina Panthers made the first coaching move of the NFL season, firing head coach Matt Rhule after a 1-4 start during his third season with the team. During Rhule’s tenure, the team traded valuable draft picks in search of a solution at quarterback (Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield) and, ultimately, left the team in a worse situation heading into the future than when he joined.

The Panthers hired former Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich, who was fired last season after a 3-5-1 start. Could Reich’s experience in rebuilding teams potentially help the Panthers?

The Panthers might have found their solution at quarterback through the 2023 NFL Draft, where they held the No. 1 overall pick. The team took Alabama QB Bryce Young who could end up the team's starter in year one.

Do the Panthers Have a Chance to Make the Playoffs?

The Carolina Panthers, like all teams entering the season, have a chance to make the playoffs. However, based on their roster and a new coaching staff, the Panthers should not be expected to make the playoffs for the 2023 NFL season.

Are the Panthers Out of Playoffs?

No, the Panthers are not out of playoffs because the season hasn't kicked off. No team is out of the playoffs just yet. Although no team should be ruled out before the season begins, top sportsbooks like BetMGM are not expecting the Panthers to be a team that makes the playoffs.
