The Saints are a near-lock to win the NFC South – but bettors shouldn’t expect them to cruise to the finish line as they host the Panthers on Sunday.

The Saints have a three-game lead on second-place Carolina in the division and would love to use their final five games to work out some of the kinks. The Panthers have dropped two in a row to see their playoff chances take a significant hit.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Saints are widely expected to come away with the home victory – but bettors should be wary of New Orleans’ recent track record with large spreads. The Saints come in having gone just 4-8 ATS in their previous 12 games as a favourite of seven or more points, with four outright losses in that span – including a 33-14 drubbing at the hands of the Panthers the last time these teams met at the Superdome back on Dec. 30, 2018.

With a total of 47 as the backdrop for their Week 12 matchup, the Panthers and Saints have brought the offensive muscle in recent head-to-head encounters. Not only have the teams gone 8-2 O/U in their past 10 meetings overall, the Over is a perfect 6-0 in their previous six games in New Orleans, with the teams averaging a combined 60.8 points over that span. But the Saints come in having converted the Under in five of their last seven home games overall.

Carolina Panthers

The Kyle Allen Hype Train has screeched to a halt after a dismal four-game stretch in which the Panthers quarterback has thrown nine interceptions, with four of those coming in last weekend’s humiliating 29-3 loss to the 3-7 Atlanta Falcons. And it gets worse from there: Allen has just three touchdown passes over that stretch, while the Carolina offensive line has allowed 18 sacks in that four-game span after giving up just 16 in its first six games.

New Orleans Saints

Getting back to the drawing board last week was important for a Saints team that managed just nine points in a Week 10 loss to Atlanta – the first time in the Drew Brees era that New Orleans failed to score a touchdown in a home game. And getting running back Alvin Kamara heavily involved seem to do the trick; he turned 23 touches into 119 yards as the Saints cruised past Tampa Bay 34-17. Consider the Over on Kamara’s total yardage vs. the Panthers.
