Panthers vs. Saints Free Pick
The Saints will try their hand at becoming the first team to hand the Panthers a loss in 2015 when the NFC South rivals clash at 4:25PM ET today.
After opening as a 6.5-point favorite, the Panthers are now 7-point favorites over the Saints according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI. As for the total, the number opened at 49.5 points but has been bet up to 50.
This is the first time the Saints have been a home dog of a touchdown or more in the Drew Brees era. Even though the Panthers are the vastly superior team in this matchup, laying 7 points on a road team in a divisional matchup doesn't seem prudent.
PredictionMachine.com notes that all-time, teams that start the season 11-0 and play their next game on the road have gone 1-4 against the spread. New Orleans has had year-long issues on defense but after a rough performance last Sunday in Houston, look for Drew Brees to rebound and keep the score within a touchdown.
