NEW ORLEANS SAINTS BETTING TRENDS

The Saints have covered the spread in nine of their last 11 road games and are 9-2 against the number in their last 11 games against the NFC South, too. They're 5-0 at the betting window in their last five road games when playing a team with a winning home record as well. They're also 8-3 against the number in their last 11 games versus NFC opponents.

CAROLINA PANTHERS BETTING TRENDS

The Panthers have dropped four of their last five games against the spread when playing at home. They're just 1-5 at the betting window in their last six games against the NFC South as well and are winless at 0-5 against the spread in their last five games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game.

OUR PREDICTION: Newton and the Panthers have not looked right offensively but fortunately for them, the Saints have one of the worst defenses in the NFL again. If there's ever a time for Carolina to rediscover its running game, it would be today against a New Orleans defense that is allowing 124.0 rushing yards per game through two weeks. The Saints also are in the unenviable position of having to travel to London next week and thus, this is a struggling team that is potentially distracted and facing an excellent defensive opponent.
