Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints Odds, Wild Card NFL Betting Pick

Carolina Panthers Cam Newton hugs New Orleans Saints Drew Brees before an NFL football game in Charlotte N.C. Sunday Sept. 24 2017. The Saints won 34-13

The Odds: The Saints opened as a 6 point favorite and that line has actually moved north to 7.

It's hard to believe how far the New Orleans Saints have come. For Carolina to buck that trend, the Panthers will need to slow down a Saints offense that has averaged 32.8 points per game in the last five games of this series.

Outside of going 0-2 SU and ATS against the Saints this season, the Panthers decimated the majority of their schedule going 11-3 SU and 9-4-1 ATS over their other 14 games.

Conversely, for Carolina to prevail, Newton likely will have to put his team on his back as he did during his team's Super Bowl season in 2015 when he earned league-MVP honors. That has helped take pressure off future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees, who is still capable of winning games on his own but no longer needs to all the time.

If New Orleans was still exclusively relying on Brees to lead the team to victory in this spot, then Carolina might be worth a look. After dropping two straight to start the Saints began an eight game win streak with their first victory over the Panthers in Charlotte. If linebackers Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis and Shaq Thompson can hold New Orleans to short runs and keep passes out of the backfield to a minimum, they will provide their team an opportunity to win.

Everything is set up for New Orleans to at least make it to the NFC Championship Game, and Brees is not getting any younger.

He can't play like he did in a 34-13 loss to the visiting, then-winless Saints in Week 3, when he threw three interceptions, got sacked four times, posted a 43.8 QB rating and didn't look fully healthy from off-season shoulder surgery. The Panthers are 0-3 SU and 0-2-1 ATS in their last three postseason games away from home.

The Saints are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games vs divisional opponents. All quotes gathered firsthand unless otherwise noted.
