The Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints face off on Sunday in an NFL showdown at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Panthers vs Saints prediction.

What an Awful Season for the Panthers

The Panthers have had an awful season and some already seem to be losing hope in quarterback Bryce Young. The Panthers have only one win this season and they have gone 0-7 away from home. In the last game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they were competitive, but the offense scored only 18 points. Bryce Young completed 18 of his 31 passes for 178 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. The Panthers on the season are averaging 15.9 points while the defense is giving up 26.1 points per game. 

Panthers Betting Trends

  • The Panthers have lost nine of their last 10 road games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Panthers have failed to cover the spread in seven of their last eight games against NFC opponents.
  • The Panthers have lost the first quarter in three of their last four road games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Panthers have lost the first half in each of their last seven Sunday games as underdogs.
  • Each of the Panthers' last four games in December have gone OVER the total points line.

Can Derek Carr Do Enough for Saints If He Plays?

The big question for the Saints heading into this game is the status of Derek Carr and if he plays how well will he play. The Saints are saying the only thing that is affecting Carr right now is the concussion but he’s back to practice so the assumption has to be that he plays. In the last game against the Detroit Lions, he almost made the comeback late, but they ended losing by five points. Taysom Hill finished with 13 carries for 59 yards and a touchdown. The Saints on the season are averaging 21.4 points while their defense is giving up 21.3 points per game. 

Saints Betting Trends

  • The Saints have lost six of their last eight games as favorites.
  • The Saints have failed to cover the spread in each of their last eight games against NFC opponents.
  • The Saints have lost the first half in each of their last four Week 14 games as favorites against NFC opponents.
  • The Saints have lost the first quarter in four of their last six games as home favorites following a loss.
  • Each of the Saints' last six games as favorites against the Panthers have gone UNDER the total points line.

Panthers vs Saints Betting Prediction 

I expect Carr to play here, but even if he doesn’t, the Saints are going to have very little issues in this game. The Saints offense sure looked good in the last game and they are going to find success again here. The Panthers on the season are averaging 15.9 points per game and they are going to really struggle again in this game. It’s going to be another bad game from Bryce Young and the Saints are going to get the job done here. Back the Saints against the spread.
