Carolina Panthers vs Atlanta Falcons NFL Spread Picks
The Panther train has been rolling with a number of covers, but they haven’t had as much success getting the straight-up wins. Carolina this week travels to Atlanta to face the rival Falcons. They come in as 4-point underdogs after the line opened at 6. With the public on the Falcons and the line coming down, what gives in this game? This might be one of those spots where it is time to wise up to Carolina. The Panthers have shown the ability to move the football through the air and they still have a strong passing game. The defense has struggled, but they have stayed with some good teams.
The Falcons, on the other hand, have been a bit of a disappointment. Matt Ryan and company are normally very good at home, but they haven’t been the guns blazing crew that they were one season ago. This looks like a lot of points for them to cover against a team that will move the football. This could be a field goal type of game, where Falcons bettors get left out to dry if they lay the four points. Be smart when making your NFL picks this week and don’t just lay your money on the blind favorite. Cam Newton and company have been burning bettors all year, and they might continue to do so this week.
