Falcons Favorites Over Panthers

The Atlanta Falcons favorites against the Carolina Panthers this Sunday is a popular early bet in the NFL.

The Panthers are +4 underdogs against the Falcons is a favorite bet early in the season. It has the most implications of any other games on Sunday. A win by Carolina dashes Atlanta’s playoff chances.

Atlanta are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine meetings against the Panthers. However, Carolina is playing at home and they are 8-2 against the spread head to head. Also the underdogs in this pairing have historically covered in six of their last eight contests.

Carolina beat Atlanta earlier this season 20-17. Carolina needs all the wins they can get as, depending how things go that are out of their control, they could finish second or sixth in the NFC.

Atlanta has had ups and downs all season. Their inconsistency has some risky bettors willing to wager on a Panthers upset.
