The Saints are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. NFC, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in November and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Panthers are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 meetings in New Orleans and the road team is 25-11 ATS in their last 36 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Saints last 7 home games.

The Panthers aren't the same team since their bye week, as they're 1-3 SU in their last four games and have scored a combined 19 points in their last two games. The Saints bounced back nicely last week and have scored 30 or more points in three of the four games Brees has played. Instead of messing with this big number, I'm taking the over. The over has cashed in eight of the last 10 meetings between the Panthers and Saints, and the Saints seem to be getting their offense back on track. Look for fireworks.
