Bet on football lines favor the New Orleans Saints by about two touchdowns as they host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
The Saints are one of two unbeaten teams in the NFL this season and on paper this game doesn’t seem to be one in which they would fall in NFL betting but Carolina did upset Arizona last week on the road.
Bet on football with the Saints has been popular this season. They beat Atlanta on Monday night but failed to cover the NFL betting number for the first time this season. New Orleans has the top ranked offense in the NFL and a defense that is much better than in previous seasons. Drew Brees and the New Orleans offense should be able to put up points in this bet on football game against Carolina.
The Panthers are 3-4 straight up and if they can pull off another unlikely upset they could get to .500. The Panthers are only 2-5 versus the NFL betting pointspread though. The Panthers won last week against Arizona by running the ball and creating turnovers. The Panthers are 5th in the league in rushing this season. Carolina has the 7th ranked defense and they are 1st in the league against the pass. That should at least make this bet on football contest interesting as their top ranked passing defense faces Brees and the Saints.
Carolina has not been a good team to bet on football with in the month of November. They are 3-7 in their last 10 games in November. Handicappers have actually warned fans as the bet on football on the Panthers. Overall, the Panthers have lost six of their last eight versus the pointspread. Carolina has owned this series in terms of the bet on football odds. The Panthers are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 meetings at New Orleans.
New Orleans has been a profitable team for those that bet on football. They are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 vs. the NFC. The Saints are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall.
Looking at the bet on football total trends we see that seven of the last eight Carolina road games have gone over. 11 of the last 14 Carolina games versus the NFC have gone over the NFL betting total. 16 of the last 22 New Orleans games at home have gone over. In this bet on football series, seven of the last nine have gone under.
