San Francisco 49ers vs. Carolina Panthers – Week 5 Betting Preview


The San Francisco 49ers visit the Carolina Panthers as the biggest road favorites on the Week 5 schedule. The betting line increased by two points shortly after the 49ers defeated the Los Angeles Rams Monday night.


San Francisco has gone 2-1 since Jimmy Garoppolo replaced the injured Trey Lance at quarterback, looking more like the team that reached last season’s NFC Championship Game. The Baker Mayfield era is off to a poor start in Carolina. The Panthers are tied for the NFC’s worst record, led by one of the NFL’s most anemic offenses.

Let’s take a look at some key statistics and information about this matchup.
