The Carolina Panthers (0-2) are on the West Coast in Week 3 to the play the Los Angeles Chargers (1-1) in a 4:05 p.m. ET game at SoFi Stadium, Sunday. Below, we take a look at the early Week 3 betting odds and lines at BetMGM Sportsbook.

Carolina had a difficult time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' defense in Week 2. QB Teddy Bridgewater threw zero TDs and committed three turnovers (Panthers had four total turnovers) and Christian McCaffrey only rushed 3.3 yards per carry in their 31-17 loss.

QB Justin Herbert was a surprise Week 2 replacement for QB Tyrod Taylor, who suffered a chest injury during pregame, in the Chargers' 23-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The rookie passed for 300-plus yards, rushed for a TD, passed for a TD and got Los Angeles into overtime against the defending Super Bowl champs.

It's unknown who will start under center for the Chargers but head coach Anthony Lynn maintained Taylor is the starter in the postgame press conference.
