When it comes to making NFL picks most pro football handicappers & sports betting experts get stuffed at the goal line, because they use NFL gambling info & NFL betting stats already factored into Las Vegas pro football lines when determining their NFL football picks & predictions each week...

FootballLOCKS.com has a different system for making NFL betting picks. We use our innovative Backwards Odds Handicapping of Las Vegas NFL odds & NFL point spreads to seek indications in the weekly NFL line as to which teams Las Vegas sports odds makers may think have an edge to cover the spread.

If you place NFL bets or gamble in a football pool, see if your NFL wagering success increases with a bet on FootballLOCKS.com's NFL expert picks & predictions... While the full card of week to week NFL game picks aren't 100% free NFL picks, we think you'll see by our subscription options that you're practically getting our NFL selections on the house.

Carolina Panthers 2012 Season Win Total Outlook & Projection:

2012 Carolina Panthers Las Vegas Season Win Total Line;
As of this writing, oddsmakers have the regular season win total line for the Carolina Panthers set at 7.5 wins.

This number represents an increase of 1.5 wins from the Panthers' prior year record of (6-10), when they topped the Vegas season win total line of 4.5 by 1.5 wins.

Part of this season's line has to do with the return of LB Jon Beason, which should help Carolina's defense improve year over year, although he is currently sidelined with a hamstring issue.

This line is also likely bolstered due to the betting public's enamoration with QB Cam Newton's explosiveness. However, the betting public has a propensity to overvalue offense, while undervaluing defense. A number like 7.5 wins can seem tempting. After all, the Panthers just have to go .500 for an over wager to hit.

Schedule Analysis:
In 2012 the Panthers will play 6 games versus teams that made the postseason a year ago;

That's one fewer contest versus returning playoff teams compared to a season ago.

However, looks can be deceiving. Carolina will also suit up home to Dallas in week 7, @Chicago in week 8, @Philadelphia in week 12, and @San Diego in week 15... These opponenets underperformed last season, some due to starting QB injuries.

When considering these four additional teams, it can be argued that Carolina will play a total of 10 games versus playoff caliber teams in 2012-- or 5/8 of their contests

Record Projection:
Last season we underestimated the impact Cam Newton would have in his first professional season, as did Vegas. This season, we feel Cam Newton's explosiveness at the pro level is factored into the line... However, Carolina's pass defense remains a huge question mark. Yet Carolina is slated to suit up against Drew Brees twice, Matt Ryan twice, Eli Manning, Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, Peyton Manning, Michael Vick, and Philip Rivers.

As a result of this tough scheduling, in 2012 we now project the Panthers to go (6-10). This is a slight downgrade following an initial upgrade from our opening projection, and falling short of the Vegas win total of 7.5...
