Cam Newton is listed as questionable on the Carolina Panthers’ injury report for this week with a rib injury, and his team now finds itself as an underdog on the NFL odds as we look at the line moves for Week 1 of the season.
The game between the Panthers and Buccaneers opened as a pick’em on the odds at 5Dimes, but with Newton now considered a game-time decision for the Sunday contest that line has since moved to Tampa Bay -2.5.
The only other shift of more than two points so far this week is for the Monday Night Football matchup between the Giants and the Lions, with Detroit now a 7-point favorite after opening the week as a 4.5-point favorite at the sportsbook.
