New Orleans Saints vs Carolina Panthers Betting Odds and Lines


Baker Mayfield’s arrival at Carolina was met with more intrigue than anything else by experts and fans. While the former Browns QB has the skills to be a talented passer and leader, there’s the whole volatility factor with him always looming.

Now, after an 0-2 start to the season for the Panthers, time is officially ticking for Mayfield to prove that he can be this team’s franchise QB for the foreseeable future.

As they get ready to play host to the New Orleans Saints, NFC South rivals, will the Panthers be able to roar, or will they just purr to another loss?

Let’s dig into this NFC South divisional clash to find out who might have the upper hand for Sunday.

Hey Baker, Is Everything Good at Home?

When Mayfield left his toxic relationship with the Browns and joined the Panthers, all signs pointed towards that being the kickstart to a career renaissance for the former Oklahoma star QB.

But after failing to beat the Browns in Week 1 and losing against the Giants in Week 2, one can’t help but wonder if Mayfield’s move was all hype and no juice.

Carolina has enough depth to be a better team. Both on offense and defense, the Panthers should be able to play better football. After these two initial defeats, the Panthers look more like kittens than anything else.

In both of their losses, the Panthers have wilted against their opponents’ running attack, something that New Orleans can exploit.

While Carolina should have no big issue keeping Saints QB Jameis Winston under control, it’s how its offense plays against New Orleans’ defense that will be key.

Running back Christian McCaffrey needs to get the ball more if Carolina wants to be able to crack the Saints’ defense open. His speed and physicality make him the only real threat that the Panthers can bring to the table.

Wide receivers DJ Moore and Robbie Anderson can become good options down the field for Mayfield as well. But given how good the Saints’ secondary can play when they’re in sync, Carolina should focus on using McCaffrey as much as possible.

Saints Want to Bounce Back after the Buccaneers Debacle

Having Winston can be as thrilling or mortifying as riding a roller coaster blindfolded.

Winston has proven that if he’s having a good day, there’s nobody that can stop him. He has also shown that when he’s not having a good day, picking off his passes is something almost anybody could do.

After throwing three interceptions against the Buccaneers in their Week 2 loss, Winston and the Saints want to score a strong divisional win to clear their street cred.

These are the Saints we’re talking about here. One of the teams deemed by many to be one of the NFL’s dark horses. Losing to the Buccaneers is not something that should come as a shock, but the way they did should.

Against the Panthers, the Saints will need to focus on exploiting the flaws in Carolina’s offensive line to give Mayfield a pounding.

More importantly, the Saints’ defense will have to play as locked up as ever to avoid giving McCaffrey any room to take off down the field.

On offense, the Saints should have no real issue against the Panthers. Chris Olave, Michael Thomas, Mark Ingram Jr., & Co. shouldn’t be tormented by Carolina’s defense.

All the Saints will need to march on to a win will be for Winston not to drop the ball, no pun intended.

Carolina or NOLA, Who’s Winning Sunday?

Don’t look too much into this matchup if we’re being honest. The Saints are the better team here and in a duel of shaky QBs, go with the Saints, it’s the holiest option.
