When Carolina beat New Orleans in September you knew the Saints were not going to have the kind of season they were hoping for.

For Carolina fans you hoped it meant this team was making a turn for the better but they wouldn`t win again for more than a month.  Now they are on a 3 game winning streak looking to finish the season on a high note with a season sweep of the Saints…QB Cam Newton is playing better but the reason the Panthers are winning has been better defensive effort.

While winning 4 of their last 5 they not given up more than 22 points in any of those victories including a stingy 13 points combined the last two weeks.  Newton is still the ultimate threat leading his team in rushing as well as passing.  


He was very efficient in the win against New Orleans early in the year…

On their recent run of good play the Panthers have been cashing at the window too.  They are on a 4-1 ATS run and actually are 8-7 overall for the season.

6 of those wins have come in underdog roles which is how they find themselves again on Sunday.[soliloquy id=”82219″]

New Orleans

In this tumultuous Bountygate season it looks like the Saints are going to come up a little bit short.  It looked at one point that they might be able to overcome those 4 early losses to start the season but to no avail.  Same story as usual with a potent offense not being potent enough to overcome one of the most porous defenses in the league…

QB Drew Brees is enjoying another spectacular season.  He has thrown some bad picks this year but should again eclipse 5000 yards, the third time has has done so.

4 players have 60 or more receptions which is why New Orleans is so hard to defend against.  Brees never seems to zero in on anyone in particular.

For fantasy players you might not want to put all your eggs in the Jimmy Graham basket as Carolina has a nice linebacking corps…Since getting off to an 0-3 ATS stretch to start the season the Saints are 8-4.

They have won their last two straight up and against the number.  This is a streak team and they are looking good right now.

Spread Pick:  New Orleans
O/U Pick:  Over
Score Prediction:  New Orleans 38 – Carolina 28
