PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, the Saints are receiving 53% of betting tickets but 54% of the money is on the Panthers to cover the spread on Sunday.

INJURY REPORT: Matt Kalil is questionable for the Panthers because of an illness but should play. The same goes for Devin Funchess, who has a shoulder injury and is questionable, as well as Trai Turner, who is questionable with a concussion. Kurt Coleman, meanwhile, is probable to play on an ankle injury after missing last week’s loss to the Falcons.

On the other side, Trey Hendrickson is probable to play for the Saints despite an ankle injury and Terron Armstead is questionable with a thigh injury.

OUR PREDICTION: The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams in New Orleans and has cashed in six of the last seven meetings overall. The over is also 4-1 in the Panthers’ last five playoff games, is 21-5 in their last 26 games played on fieldturf, and has cashed in five of their last seven games overall.

On the other side, the over is a perfect 5-0 in the Saints’ last five playoff home games, is 6-0 in their last six games coming off a loss, and is 8-3-1 in their last 12 playoff games.
