Panthers vs. Falcons Line Movement
4* Free Week 1 NFL Betting Prediction: Carolina +3
The side I’m playing on the spread, is to take the Panthers on the road. With the line, sitting at +3, I’d be looking to act now on getting some action on Carolina.
Why would I do that if Carolina only had eight wins in 17 games against the spread last season?
Defense, defense, defense. Carolina’s defensive prowess truly stands out, where Donte Jackson, Jaycee Horn, and CJ Henderson are all in excellent health.
Plus, navigating the NFC South isn’t a formidable task. The Panthers came close to winning the division with a ‘losing’ record, just one game and play away from doing so. Reich and Young is a really nice combo, and I’m excited to watch on Sunday.
