When Carolina travels to New Orleans on Sunday, there won’t be any playoff implications and while neither team has indicated that it will rest any starters, either way we don’t expect fireworks in the Big Easy. This pick is all about the Saints. The Saints are an under machine and we feel like we are catching a break with a line that opened at 39.5 but has crawled up to 42 and at that number we are buyers on the under. The Saints have only had one game reach forty total points in their last nine. They have played strong defense and conservative offense, and even though the Panthers offense has found a bit of a resurgence under Sam Darnold, we expect them to struggle in the Superdome. Let’s expect more of the same from the Saints and we’ll play under the 42 at Bookmaker.
Prediction: Under 42
