At DraftKings sportsbook, the favored Carolina Panthers are receiving the majority of the point spread bets for their Week 1 matchup against the New York Jets.

Betting Impact:

The Panthers are -4 point home favorites. Per DraftKings, the favorites have attracted 67% of the point spread bets, and 63% of the money. This game is one of the rare cases of all the Week 1 game that has seen "reverse line movement." Carolina opened as -5 point favorites, and were briefly bet up to -5.5. The fact that their line has come down to -4 suggests that there is likely some respected money on the underdogs, and the betting splits suggest that the slightly largers wagers are on the Jets at +4.
