Betting Impact:

McCaffrey's absence had a direct result on the spread. Early in the week, the Panthers opened as -1.5 point home favorites when it appeared McCaffrey might be on track to play. However, the line quickly jumped to Minnesota -1 as bettors likely got a jump on the inevitable injury news. Now, the line currently stands at Vikings -2.5 (per BettingPros consensus odds), which is the highest the number has been all week.
