Carolina Panthers 2024 Win Total: Trends of 5.5 Win Total Teams

Carolina Panthers 2024 Win Total: Trends of 5.5 Win Total Teams
Fact Checked by Nate Hamilton

There hasn’t been much reason for cheering in the Carolinas of late when it comes to the region’s lone professional football team, as the Carolina Panthers playoff chances are firmly mired in a six-year drought a year after posting the worst record in the NFL.  

With a second-year quarterback in Bryce Young that threw nearly as many interceptions (10) as touchdowns (11), first-year head coach Dave Canales has his work cut out for him this fall.  

Unsurprisingly, the Panthers enter the year with a win total over/under of 5.5 on multiple North Carolina online sportsbooks, with FanDuel Sportsbook giving the club +360 odds of making the playoffs in 2024 (to -500 that they miss out entirely).  

Utilizing DraftKings North Carolina Sportsbook’s current win total for the 2024 NFL season, the Panthers were found to be set at 5.5 wins (-115 over). Utilizing, we found all teams with a 5.5-win total line since the 2010 NFL season and how they performed.

Can Panthers Turn Corner In 2024?

Of the 18 teams since 2014 that entered the NFL season with a win total over/under of 5.5, 10 failed to hit that mark (55.6%), while three of the 18 (16.7%) went on to make the playoffs that season.  

Those three include the 2011 Bengals, who went 9-7 and lost in the AFC Wild Card Round, while the 2012 Indianapolis Colts went 11-5 and the 2022 Seattle Seahawks went 9-7, with all three losing in the NFL’s Wild Card Round. 

This year, Canales and company will look to become the first team with a preseason win total of over/under 5.5 since 2014 to make it past the Wild Card Round, starting with the team’s Week 1 clash against the New Orleans Saints in the Crescent City on Sept. 8.  

If Bryce Young can grow under his new head coach and coaching staff and Carolina’s roster learns to play sound football across the board then the Panthers have a shot at taking the NFL by surprise this fall.  

If not, then it’s bound to be another long season for football fans in North and South Carolina, with the Panthers looking to avoid a seventh straight season of watching the NFL Playoffs on TV like everyone else. is your home for Carolina Panthers updates, insights, and the best North Carolina sportsbook promos around!
