NFL Betting Picks & Odds for Week 3 Thursday Night Football Panthers vs. Texans




We have a real barn burner on our hands for Thursday Night Football, with the Carolina Panthers taking on the Houston Texans. To be fair, the Panthers’ offense is loaded, and their defense is surprising people, while the Texans have managed to put a competitive product on the field against all odds. However, with Tyrod Taylor getting struck down by the football Gods again, can the Texans remain competitive from an NFL betting perspective? The following Panthers vs. Texans NFL betting picks preview will provide the current odds, betting trends, and best NFL bets for the Week 3 Thursday Night Football matchup.

Coming into Week 3, the Panthers have the top-scoring defense in the NFL (10.5 average points allowed), which nobody predicted. Sure, they faced the Jets Week 1, but a convincing Week 2 win over the New Orleans Saints has many taking notice. The only question mark for this loaded offense was at quarterback, but Sam Darnold has answered the call. He is finally reading defenses and throwing passes on time. If Darnold continues to force defenses to respect every inch of the field, the Panthers can beat any team in the league.

The Texans may have been the most surprising team through two weeks. They nearly sent Urban Meyer back to college in Week 1, then they had the Cleveland Browns on the ropes last week. It might have come down to the fourth quarter if Tyrod Taylor did not get hurt. However, after what is being called a severe hamstring injury and not him ruining the tanking plan, rookie Davis Mills will be starting on Thursday. Mills went 8-for-18 with a touchdown and an interception last week. Going from the efficient Taylor to a mid-round rookie is quite the drop-off, which we will likely see on TNF.
