Carolina Panthers DFS Spin

Curtis Samuel (knee) is questionable for Week 7 against the Saints. Samuel made minimal impact in Carolina's first five games (19/183) and reportedly won't be "rushed" back onto the field. Keith Kirkwood will likely make his second consecutive start in the slot for Samuel against New Orleans.

New Orleans Saints DFS Spin

Saints WR Michael Thomas (hamstring) is out for week 7 against Carolina. This was expected after Thomas suffered a hamstring injury during practice this week. He hasn't played since Week 1. With Emmanuel Sanders on the COVID-19 list, the Saints have three healthy wideouts: Tre'Quan Smith, Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris. That's it. That's the list. Austin Carr could be called up from the Saints practice squad for this week's game against Carolina. Smith should function as the Saints' WR1 against the Panthers. He's a low-end WR2 based on opportunity alone. Jared Cook could see more targets with Thomas and Sanders sidelined.

Panthers vs. Saints Betting Prediction

The Panthers have been a great ATS play against the Saints over the years, covering in four of the last five meetings overall and posting a 15-5 ATS record in their last 20 trips to New Orleans. The underdog has also cashed in 10 of the last 12 meetings between these two teams while the road team has covered in 27 of the last 38 meetings. The Saints, meanwhile, are just 2-6 against the number in their last eight home games and are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games when favored at home.
