Why Bet on Panthers
Carolina Panthers come to this game without any chance of being able to get their postseason ticket, so their season is practically over. The Panthers are in last place in the NFC South Group with a very poor record of 5 wins and 10 losses.
Throughout the season, the Panthers failed to come up with the ideal formula that could lead them down the road to victory.
The Panthers come into this game with a string of 5 losses and, the last of them against the Buccaneers with a terrible result of 6-32.
Why Bet on Saints
On the other hand, the New Orleans Saints arrive at this day 16 still with the possibility of being part of the Wild Card, but, this will be achieved only if they manage to win the two remaining games. The Saints are currently in third place in the NFC South Group, with a negative record of 7 wins and 8 losses.
The Saints come from being crushed in their last game by the Dolphins with a score of 3-20.
Final Betting Analysis: Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints
In this game between the Panthers and Saints, we have two teams with completely different realities. The Panthers do not play anything, they are eliminated and, this makes them a very dangerous team. While the Saints are forced to win their two games to continue with the dream of being in the postseason.
Everything points to the Saints taking the victory comfortably, but a game against an eliminated team is much more dangerous than you might think.
For this match, our winner token is for New Orleans Saints.
