Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints Week 7 Betting Preview

The NFC South race is a three-team battle heading into Week 7, and two of those teams go head-to-head as the New Orleans Saints (3-2) host the Carolina Panthers (3-3). This game kicks off at 1 pm ET Sunday at the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans and will be televised regionally on FOX.

This is the first of two meetings between these teams this season. The Saints swept the Panthers last year with 42-10 and 34-31 wins, and they have won six of the last seven meetings. The Panthers won in New Orleans in Week 17 of 2018, their only win at the Superdome since 2015.

 

 

Carolina Panthers Betting Outlook: Protect Bridgewater

In betting with us this season at www.RealBookies.com  the Panthers are 3-3 ATS, and the under is 4-2 in their four games. The Panthers offense ranks 11th in total yards (383.5 yards per game), 23rd in scoring (23.0 points per game) and ninth in rushing (116.8 yards per game).

The Carolina defense ranks 11th in total yards (340.5 yards per game), seventh against the pass (218.8 yards per game) and 13th in scoring (23.5 points per game).

The subplot of Sunday’s game is that Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater was with the Saints last year. He went 5-0 filling in for the injured Drew Brees, so how much of the Saints system can he pass along to his current Panthers teammates this week?

On Sunday, in a loss to the Chicago Bears, Bridgewater threw for 216 yards with two interceptions and no touchdowns while being sacked four times. On the season, he has thrown for 1,676 yards in six games while completing 70.9% of his passes. Bridgewater has six touchdowns and five interceptions.

Running back Mike Davis scored against the Bears and had 52 yards on 18 carries, while Bridgewater ran for 48 yards. Davis has 272 yards on 4.3 yards per carry while filling in for the injured Christian McCaffrey. Davis has two rushing touchdowns, while Bridgewater has one.

Wide receiver D.J. Moore caught five balls for 93 yards on Sunday, while wide receiver Robby Anderson had four catches for 77 yards. On the season, Anderson has 40 receptions for 566 yards, while Moore has 27 for 474 yards. Both have one touchdown reception, while Davis has two receiving touchdowns among his 32 catches for 209 yards.

New Orleans Saints Betting Preview: Get Thomas Involved

In betting with us this season at RealBookies.com, the Saints are 2-3 ATS, and the over is 5-0 in their five games. Sean Payton’s offense ranks fifth in the NFL in scoring (30.6 points per game), 12th in total yards (378.4 yards per game) and 12th in passing (263.4 yards per game).

The New Orleans defense ranks eighth in total yards (337.4 yards per game), sixth against the run (100.2 yards per game) but 24th in scoring (30.0 points per game), thanks in large part to just four takeaways.

The Saints had a bye last week and should welcome wide receiver Michael Thomas back to the offense this week. Thomas missed three games with a high ankle sprain and was inactive in the Week 5 win over the Los Angeles Chargers after an altercation in practice.

Brees has 1,331 yards in five games with nine touchdowns, three interceptions and a 71% completion rate. In last year’s sweep, Brees threw for 564 yards against the Panthers with six touchdowns and one interception.

Running back Latavius Murray has 218 yards rushing on 52 carries for a 4.2-yard average, and he has scored twice.

Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has 26 catches for 304 yards and two touchdowns, while wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith has 16 catches for 194 yards and two touchdowns. Tight end Jared Cook missed a game but returned for the win over the Chargers and has 11 catches with two touchdowns on the season.
