The Carolina Panthers hit the road for a battle with the New Orleans Saints.  The Panthers are (5-5) on the year, after falling to the Falcons 29-3.  The Saints enter with a record of (8-2), coming off a 34-17 win over the Buccaneers.

There was not much showing of the Panthers in the loss to the Falcons.  Quarterback Kyle Allen completed 31 of his passes, but threw 4 interceptions.  The Panthers trailed 26-0 before Joey Slye kicked a 31 yd field goal.  The Panthers were out gained 349 to 347.  The Panthers did not help themselves by committing 8 penalties. The Panthers did give up a special teams touchdown in the loss.

In the Saints win over the Buccaneers, New Orleans was led by Drew Brees.  Brees completed 28 of his 35 attempts for 228 yds and 3 touchdowns.  Michael Thomas had 8 receptions for 114 yds and a score.  Jared Cook and Ted Ginn Jr. each added a receiving touchdown in the win.  The Saints were out gained 334 to 328 in the game, but forced 4 interceptions.  Marcus Williams had one of those interceptions, returning it 55 yds for a touchdown.

Recent Betting Trends:

Panthers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs the NFC.

The under is 5-2 in Panthers last 7 vs. the NFC South.

Saints are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall.

Saints are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games in week 12.

The under is 5-2 in Saints last 7 home games.

The Saints defense has looked good this year, allowing less than 20 points per game.  The Saints looked good offensively on the road and will be looking to continue that against a defense that is allowing almost 26 points per game.  The Panthers ranked 10th in offensive rushing yds per game, but the Saints are even better defensively.  The Saints rank 3rd in allowing the fewest rushing yds per game (85.4). The Panthers got off to a great start this year, but have lost 3 of their last 4 games.  The Saints have Alvin Kamara back as well.  I'll side with this Saints offense, as I am confident the Saints will be able to put up points in a hurry.  Final score prediction, Saints cover, 31-20.
