NFL Betting Predictions: New Orleans Saints vs Carolina Panthers
With both of these teams the New Orleans Saints and the Carolina Panthers having an unexpected slow start the price is high in this game as neither want to end up 0-2 to start the season. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Saints as -3 point favorites on the road aginst the Carolina Panthers.
Who would of thought the New Orleans Saints would be blown out the water at home by a rookie QB in the season opener? Losing 40-32 against the Redskins and allowing Washington’s rookie QB RG3 look like a star in the making.
Luckily for the Saints they did start to get their offense moving and if their defense had showed up to play at all they could of won. QB Drew Brees who had zero running game to help him out last week, did not have a good day completing only 46% of his 52 passes for 339 yards, 3 scores but also 2 interceptions.
Well Carolina fans it is called the sophomore slump for a reason as second year QB Cam Newton may just find out. In week one’s ugly to watch 16-10 loss to the Buccaneers Newton threw for a nice completion percentage (69.7%) however threw 2 interceptions and was sacked three times.
The Panthers seemed to abandon the run quickly as Carolina had 8 total carries by their half backs with Cam Newton having 5 runs. Only offensive player having a good day for the Panthers was veteran wide receiver Stever Smith with 7 catches for 106 yards, one of which went 32 yds.
No way the New Orleans Saints start the season off 0-2 against young quarterback’s. The Carolina panthers did not look good at all last week while the Saints offense started to pick up as their first gme went on. Look for the visiting Saints to cover the spread big against the Panthers.
