New Orleans Saints vs Carolina Panthers

Another Week-3 divisional rivalry, this time in the NFC South, as New Orleans travels to the Bank of America Stadium to take on the Carolina Panthers. With the Saints’ form at the Superdome letting them down in 2021, the Panthers also seemed to struggle both at home and on the road, but they had a host of injuries to deal with, including star RB Christian McCaffrey.

Saints vs Panthers Highlights

In recent history, the Saints have dominated this fixture, with 9 of the last 12 meetings resulting in New Orleans leaving with the win, and NFL betting odds are set to reflect that. The post-Drew Brees era might allow for more opportunity in the Panthers camp, with the hope being placed on some positive off-season acquisitions this year. But they will have to stand the test of time against strong divisional opponents and the 12th most difficult regular season schedule.

For those wanting to place a bet on NFL games in Week 3, Carolina Panthers ranked 2nd in 2021 for least yards gained per game but had the third-worst offense in the league. For the Saints, it was a similar story, with productivity on defense far exceeding offensive yards gained. With that in mind, New Orleans Saints vs Carolina Panthers might bring opportunity in the “Score Under” category, although new QBs in both rosters might have something to say about that.

With the Panthers breaking a 7-game losing streak in their opening preseason matchup, there is hope for a better year in Carolina, but the Saints covering the spread looks the most sensible option going into this one, as long as they are able to keep the likes of Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas, and former Cleveland Brown, Jarvis Landry fit and healthy.
