Carolina is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 October games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games. The under is 5-1 in Carolina’s last 6 games. Atlanta is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 October games. The under is 6-2 in Atlanta’s last 8 home games. The under is 13-4-1 in these two teams last 18 head to head meetings.
Carolina is coming off of an unexpected win last week against Bucs after they traded their best player away. Atlanta allowed over 500 yards to Cincinnati and will be looking to bounce back at home. The winner of this game will be in first place of the NFC South standings. I like Atlanta in this game and think Carolina is going to struggle offensively.
