Kickoff is on Sunday at 1:00 ET. The under is 5-0 in the last five games played in Carolina, and New Orleans is 6-0 ATS in its last six visits to Bank of America Stadium.
New Orleans (3-3 SU, 4-2 ATS) was at home last Sunday, where NFL odds makers forecasted the Saints to be seven points better than the Oakland Raiders, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 47. New Orleans played very well and easily dominated Oakland in almost every aspect of the game.
The Saints controlled the ball for 36:10, which allowed them to put a lot of points on the board. Drew Brees put up typical Drew Brees numbers (26 completed passes in 30 attempts, 320 yards, three touchdowns) and Reggie Bush scored two touchdowns in New Orleans’ 34-3 trouncing of the Raiders.
Football bettors who picked the Saints, straight up or laying the points, were victorious, as were those players who predicted that the ‘total’ would go under the closing football betting line. Carolina was at the Big Sombrero in Tampa last Sunday for a football betting contest with its NFC South rivals, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bucs closed, according to the NFL lines, as one-point favorites over the Panthers with the ‘total’ set at 37. With the Panthers down 14-0 in the second quarter, kicker John Kasay kicked a 20 yard field goal to put Carolina on the board. It would prove to be the only points the Panthers could muster all day.
Carolina’s offense was only able to convert on three of twelve third down plays and quarterback Jake Delhomme threw three interceptions in the Panthers’ 34-3 embarrassment at the hands of the Buccaneers.
The Carolina Panthers are three-point favorites over the New Orleans Saints in Sunday’s NFL betting contest in Carolina; the ‘total’ currently sits at 44. Sports-Gambling.com is the best online sports betting site around. Login today for all football spread, total, and money line wagering.
