The New York Giants will be without one of their top weapons for Thursday’s game at Carolina.Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who had a monster game in Sunday’s win over Tampa Bay, will not play against the Panthers due to a sore foot.
Nicks was expected to play when oddsmakers installed the Giants as 1-point road favorites. However, the number had been shrinking early in the week and was down to a pick'em as of Tuesday.
That changed Wednesday afternoon when news broke that Hicks did not make the trip to Carolina. The line quickly bumped up to Panthers -1.5 at multiple sports books, including Bovada
