NFL Draft Review: Odds and Props

Did you expect the drafting of Cam Newton to move the Carolina Panthers up the NFL futures list? The Panthers did see a change, hitting 100/1 on the Super Bowl futures, up from 125/1 at Bovada, but they still have the same lackluster team that went 2-14 a year ago around Newton. Betting on the Panthers to win anything next year seems like a waste of time, especially if some experts are still wondering if Newton will be the next Matt Ryan or the next JaMarcus Russell.
