It is a key game for the Saints as they sit at 3-3, one game back of the 4-2 Panthers in the division. NFL Week 7 odds have the Panthers as three point football betting favorites.
NFL betting stats show that the Panthers have been very successful in recent years against the Panthers. Carolina has won seven of the last ten meetings between the two teams although they are only 5-5 versus the football betting number. At Carolina, the Panthers are only 2-3 straight up and against the NFL betting pointspread versus the Saints. The Saints are just about a .500 team as a road underdog since 2005 according to NFL betting stats. Carolina is nothing special at home as a home favorite as they are under .500 versus the NFL betting pointspread. The Panthers have been very poor at home within the division the past three years, winning at only 30%.
In terms of the NFL betting total, seven of the last ten meetings have gone under the total including five of the last six. The last five games at Carolina between the two teams have all gone under the football betting number. The Saints have been a solid over team on the road in recent seasons, hitting almost 60% of the time according to NFL betting stats. The problem for totals players is that Carolina is a solid under team at home, hitting about 65% of the time according to football betting numbers.
Both New Orleans and Carolina have offenses that can impact the NFL betting pointspread. The Saints really exploded last week in NFL betting against the Raiders with Drew Brees having another great game. The Panthers can almost match the Saints with quarterback Jake Delhomme and wide receiver Steve Smith according to NFL betting experts. The difference in this series has been the defense and that edge has gone to the Panthers. That could be the case again in this NFL betting matchup on Sunday.
