NFL Betting Preview: New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers

December 10, 2023



A pair of NFC South division rivals will face off against each other in week 14 of the NFL season when the Carolina Panthers travel to New Orleans, Louisiana to face the New Orleans Saints at the Caesars Superdome with kick-off scheduled for 1:00 PM ET on Sunday afternoon and the game will air on Fox.

The Carolina Panthers have the worst record in the NFL with a record of 1-10 and are on a five-game losing streak following an 18-21 loss on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Bryce Young has struggled in his rookie season as he enters this game having completed 231 of 381 attempts for 2,055 yards with nine touchdowns and nine interceptions which has led the Panthers to averaging the 3rd fewest passing yards per game in the league with an average of 171.25 passing yards per game. The offense as a whole hasn’t been great either as Carolina enters this game averaging 15.92 points per game which ranks 29th in the league. The defense has also been one of the worst scoring defenses in the NFL as they are allowing the 2nd most points per game in the league with an average of 26.08 points per game. The Panthers will look to end their five-game losing streak when they travel to face the New Orleans Saints.

New Orleans enters this game on a three-game losing streak which has dropped them to 3rd in the NFL South with a record of 5-7 this season. The offense has been one of the lowest-scoring offenses in the NFL this season and is one of the main reasons for the struggles the Saints have had as they are averaging 21.42 points per game which is below the league average of 21.74 points per game. The Saints have also been a below-average rushing offense as they enter this game averaging 105.08 rushing yards per game. The Saints will look to end their three-game losing streak when they host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon in week 14 of the NFL season.

BookMaker has the New Orleans Saints listed as 5-point favorites at home against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon in week 14 of the NFL season. New Orleans has won six of the last ten including a 20-17 win on the road earlier this season while Carolina has won two of the last three meetings. The Panthers are 6-3-1 ATS in the last ten and 2-0-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Carolina Panthers are 2-8-2 ATS overall, 1-5-1 ATS on the road, 2-8-2 as an underdog, and 1-1-1 ATS in division games this season while the New Orleans Saints are 2-9-1 ATS overall, 0-5 ATS at home, 1-8-1 ATS as a favorite, and 0-2-1 ATS in division games on the year.

New Orleans is the better team this season and has been the better team in the series, winning six of the last ten. However, the Panthers have been the better team at covering the spread in the series as they are 6-3-1 ATS in the last ten and 2-0-1 ATS in the last three matchups while the Saints have been one of the worst teams at covering the spread this season as they are 2-9-1 ATS overall and have not covered the spread at home this season with a record of 0-5 ATS at home. As a result, I am taking the points with the Carolina Panthers when they travel to face the New Orleans Saints.
