This line seems to be a little bit favorable for the Panthers here because they’re not really the favorites on paper, but I think they’re more than capable of covering at home considering how the Saints played last time out. They couldn’t do anything with Winston playing hurt, as he was missing a ton of passes and struggling with his accuracy because he was really hurt.

The Panthers aren’t a good team but this feels like a do-or-die already for them: no team with a 0-2 start reached the playoffs since the postseason was expanded to 14 teams two years ago. Carolina was always though to be a work in progress with a new quarterback and their biggest superstar returning from injury; at home against a division rival might be the first time that they hit all cylinders this year. Pick the Panthers to cover, because the Saints will have a lot of trouble scoring.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Only one of the four games these teams played hit the over

  • The Saints should dominate the battle in the trenches
  • Mayfield and McCaffrey should also have a good day
  • This game usually hit the over

The over for this game is set at 41 points which is a reasonable number, but I do believe that we’re going to see a higher score here than what we’re expecting. Neither team lacks playmakers and they can all just blow on a single play which really help us. But this is set to be a tight game in the sense that they have similar firepower and this shouldn’t be a blowout, which is also a plus for our bet. As much as I like the Saints defense, the over is the pick here.
