According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the latest odds currently have the Panthers as a 6-point favorite against the Broncos tonight. The over/under total is now listed at 43.5 points. These two meet tonight at 6:30PM ET from Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. The game will air live on CBS.

Of the injuries heading into this game, the biggest are with the Panthers, especially on defense. Both linebacker Thomas Davis and defensive end Jared Allen are dealing with injuries entering the game, but both will play. Davis has a broken forearm that he suffered in the NFC Championship, but vowed that nothing would stop him from playing. Still, how much impact will the injured arm have once he begins making contact with opposing players? Allen has been dealing with a broken bone in his foot that caused him to miss the last two playoff games. Davis was second on the team in tackles this season with 105 tackles and he also had 5.5 sacks with four interceptions. Allen had 27 tackles and two sacks with Carolina. He was traded to the team mid-season from Chicago.

Denver is also dealing with some injuries, but nothing quite as severe as Carolina. The main injury is to T.J. Ward, the safety, who has been bothered by an ankle injury he suffered in the AFC Championship. Ward has 61 tackles and two sacks this season with six pass deflections. There is also lingering concerns about Peyton Manning’s health as injuries have compiled in recent years. Manning has a bad hip and coming off a torn quad from last season. He also had major neck surgery a few years ago that has limited his arm strength since.
