Eli Manning GiantsThe Carolina Panthers and New York Giants are set to continue the 2012 NFL season, and as a part of our analysis of the Week 3 betting lines, we are taking a look at some of the best NFL props on the board for this crucial Thursday Night Football matchup.

Total Sacks Over/Under 4: We really don’t like betting these sack props all that often, but in this case, we are going to make an exception. The Panthers know that there is absolutely no threat of the Giants running the ball in this one, and that means that they can pin their ears back and go after QB Eli Manning, who is going to be without RB Ahmad Bradshaw, who is also an underrated pass blocker, T David Diehl, arguably his best offensive lineman, and WR Hakeem Nicks and WR Domenik Hixon, his No. 1 and No. 3 receivers. We’re never going to count out the New York defensive front from getting its sack or two either even though QB Cam Newton is one of the best escape artists that the game has to offer. This should be a nice game for the two defensive lines, though both offensive lines are going to be scratching their heads as to how they are going to end up getting the job done against these ferocious rushes. Total Sacks Over 4 (-130)

Eli Manning Over/Under 290.5 Passing Yards: Manning threw for 500+ yards last week, so this should be no problem, right? Maybe not so much. Again, both Nicks and Hixon are out of the fold, and the receivers aside from WR Victor Cruz that are available just aren’t all that great, to say the least. Manning will hopefully have a better chance of playing this game from ahead than from behind, though you never really know about that either. The Carolina defense is going to be amped up to try to defend the pass this time around, and the unit really did well against the New Orleans Saints five days ago. This one could be tough sledding for the younger Manning, as he has to face the facts that he is really going into battle in this one from an offensive standpoint, basically all by himself. Eli Manning Under 290.5 Passing Yards (-115)

Victor Cruz Over/Under 6 Receptions: This is definitely a donkey type of play, but we just don’t see any other options out there. Who’s going to be catching the ball from Manning on Thursday night? Martellus Bennett? Okay, he’ll have a few. Rueben Randle? Ramses Barden? Who are these guys? There’s just nothing out there for Manning to work with in this one, but at least he has a rapport built up with Cruz the likes that he just doesn’t have with anyone else out there. And yes, Carolina is going to know that that’s coming, and it is going to overload on Cruz’s side with defenders, but that won’t matter. Eli just has to be good enough to work the ball to his top receiver at least a dozen times in this one, and more often than not, those passes are going to be completed. Victor Cruz Over 6 Receptions (-150)

Will Eli Manning Throw an Interception?: Of course he will. This is Eli that we’re talking about. Last week, Manning had three picks in the first half, and this week, he is in even worse shape, knowing that he doesn’t have his best and most reliable receiver. Carolina doesn’t have the greatest secondary in the world, but it does have a unit that can get to the football when it is loose. Manning will make at least one mistake in this game amongst the 45-50 throws that he is probably going to be asked to make, and when he does, we’ll cash one of the easiest -220 tickets of our lives. Eli Manning To Throw an Interception (-220)

Brandon LaFell Over/Under 51.5 Receiving Yards: We’re used to it being boom or bust for LaFell, but it is clear this year that he is receiving some more attention from QB Cam Newton. The Giants’ secondary, along with its offensive line and the rest of its team, is all banged up right now as well, and if DB Prince Amukamara doesn’t end up playing, LaFell might be the man that ends up getting sprung deep down the field. The way that Newton throws the ball, it only takes one great shot down the field to get LaFell 50+ yards, and we think that that is exactly what is going to happen in this one. Brandon LaFell Over 51.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
