Panthers 30.1, Falcons 18.0

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1829 ... prediction

In a huge NFC South clash on Tobacco Road, both the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers come in on ATS win streaks, as the Falcons have covered seven of nine in this series while the Panthers are on a 5-1 ATS streak in NFC South games.


Point Spread: The Panthers opened as seven-point favorites, but have been bet as high as nine-point favorites at some sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark. The total was 44.

Computer Prediction: Panthers 30.1, Falcons 18.0


Why the Falcons Can Cover the Spread

The Falcons will be competitive, as they're in must-win mode and have no choice but to prevail in this game. They looked good in a victory over Tampa Bay, then had a poor showing in the desert. Now they have the surging Panthers and will host Seattle next week.

If there was ever a time for them to step up, it's now.


Why the Panthers Can Cover the Spread

Carolina comes in after a Thursday night win over lowly Tampa Bay, so the extra time to prepare helps, as the Falcons were in Arizona last Sunday. Cam Newton has been outstanding throwing the ball in wins over Minnesota, St. Louis and Tampa Bay. He has also has been able to run the ball effectively.

Atlanta is battered and looking anything like the Super Bowl contender experts claimed it was in September.


Smart Pick

Carolina not only has a balanced offense resting in Newton's hands, but has also displayed a dominant defense. The Panthers came out of their game with Tampa Bay boasting the league's No. 3 defense. They limited the Bucs to 48 rushing yards and 297 yards overall.

With the NFL's No. 9 pass defense, they will stymie the Falcons.


Trends

Atlanta is 7-2 SU in its past nine against the Panthers.

Carolina is 4-1 ATS in its last five games.

The Falcons are out of must win games....... What they need now is (I can't spell his name )
MASIQUIA to have a big game I think he's going to be good. Then some of our O-Linemen will just puss out; and some will finish strong..... I really think Holmes has the most potential;
he plays with emotion and that's why he's tired in the second quarter; he won't want to ever experience this again; but I can't promise anything.

Our free agent linebackers are getting the opportunity of a lifetime. I'm starting to question
our good linebackers heart.

Spoon? You do realize that he has a similar injury that has sidelined Julio Jones for the entire season. Yet he's working to get back to us in 2-3 weeks.

Or were you referring to Dent or Nicholas? Couldn't have been, because they aren't good. :whistle:

Dent and Nichols both are below average starters, our undrafted rookies are barely a step down. Losing Spoon was a back breaker for our team. It's almost as big as losing Julio. I hope he doesn't even try to come back this year as he will both risk re injuring himself and ruining our draft status with some BS late season win.
