Panthers vs. Saints Prediction
Will the Saints pull off the small upset today when they host the Panthers at 1:00PM ET in a battle of NFC South rivals?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Saints are 3-point home underdogs versus the Panthers while the over/under currently sits at 53 points. Neither the side nor the total have moved off the original numbers posted by oddsmakers.
The Panthers are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall and are winless at 0-6 against the number in their last six road games. They're also 1-5 at the betting window in their last six games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game but are 9-4 against the number in their last 13 games played in the month of October.
The Saints are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games in October, are 7-1 against the number in their last eight games coming off a bye, and have been a solid bet when playing the division, covering in five of their last six games versus NFC South rivals. That said, they're just 4-10-1 against the number in their last 15 home games and are 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine coming off a win.
OUR PREDICTION: The Panthers have dominated this series, covering in 12 of their last 15 games in New Orleans while the road team is 21-8 against the number in the last 29 meetings between these two teams. Despite the Saints being well rested coming off their bye, they still have massive issues defensively and with Cam Newton expected to play after missing Monday night's game against the Bucs due to a concussion, the Panthers should cover the small number.
