Week 17 NFL Spread: Panthers vs. Saints

NFL Online Betting Panthers vs Saints

The Carolina Panthers travel to the Big Easy to take on the Saints in a game that Carolina sort of has to win. If the Panthers lose and the Falcons win, then Atlanta gets the number two seed in the NFL Playoffs wagering and a bye next week. That’s a lot for Carolina to play for in this game. They could go from playing for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs to losing the NFC South Division and having to play next week. Sports betting fans have to like how the Panthers gave it their all last Sunday against the New York Giants. Carolina looked like winners on the last play of the game but John Kasay’s kick was taken by the wind and the Panthers had to go into overtime against the G-Men. The Panthers are still an okay NFL betting option with an against the BetUS online sportsbook online wagering record of 8-6-1. It’s not stellar but it’s a winning record.

The New Orleans Saints took out their frustrations on the 0 and 15 Detroit Lions last weekend by scoring 42 points. Drew Brees, Marques Colston and the rest of the Saints just went crazy in that game. They’re gong to find things somewhat tougher this Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Even though the Saints aren’t going to make the playoffs, they are still a dangerous team and they’ve been one of the best teams in the NFL against the BetUS online betting spread with a record of 10-4-1. Too bad the NFL doesn’t hand out playoff seeds based on a team’s against the spread record!

Here are the BetUS online sportsbook betting odds for this game.

Carolina Panthers – 3 Ev O 52 ½ – 110
New Orleans Saints + 3 – 120 U 52 ½ – 110

Here are a few online wagering trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game.

The Carolina Panthers are 8-2-1 in their last 11 games as the favorite.
The Under is 7 and 1 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams.
The New Orleans Saints are 4-0-1 against the spread in their last 5 games against an opponent from the NFC Conference.
The Over is 10-1-1 in the New Orleans Saints last 12 games at home.

This game might go over, but I’m not willing to take a stab on that. Instead, I’m going to go ahead and take Carolina and give up the 3 points.

To me, the Saints played their best game last Sunday against Detroit. It will be asking too much for those Saints corners to cover Steve Smith and Mushin Muhammed. Both guys should have a field day against the Saints’ defensive backfield.

On defense, Carolina should be able to contain that high-powered Saints’ offense by simply sticking in the Cover 2. They will have to put pressure on Brees, but I believe they can.

Panthers vs. Saints Prediction:

The biggest reason to like Carolina is motivation. The Panthers want the bye. They can only get it if they secure the number two seed in the NFC Playoffs. I’m making an online bet on the Carolina Panthers to beat the New Orleans Saints by more than 3 points.
