Eagles vs Giants 2019 NFL Week 17 Odds, Analysis & Prediction

Why Bet On New Orleans?

Drew Brees and company might be on the road in this affair, but there are a ton of god reasons to back the Saints in this affair. First and foremost, the Saints still have a shot to nab the top seed in the NFC playoffs with a win, combined with a 49ers loss or a win combined with a Packers loss or wins by the Packers and Seahawks.

New Orleans has only lost once in seven road games this season while Carolina has gone a dismal 2-5 at home this season. Last, but not least, the Saints have the far more explosive offense in this affair in putting up 27.7 points per game (fifth) to Carolina’s more modest 22.0 points per contest (18th).

Why Bet On Carolina?

The Panthers might be playing at home, but there aren’t many reasons – if any – to back the reeling Panthers in this affair. Carolina has lost seven straight games including their embarrassing 38-6 loss against Indianapolis on Sunday.

More importantly, the Panthers have some serious issues at quarterback with Kyle Allen getting benched and younger signal-caller Will Grier stinking up the joint with three interceptions last weekend. Carolina has lost three straight at home while going 1-1-5 ATS over their last seven games.
