Falcons Visit Carolina in Clash of Faltering NFC South Rivals

The Atlanta Falcons look to end a four-game slide at the sportsbooks as they travel to Charlotte to take on the Carolina Panthers in an NFC South matchup at Bank of America Stadium. The Falcons are coming off a 25-20 win over the New York Jets as 6.5-point road chalk, while the Panthers posted a 17-3 win at Tampa Bay as 1.5-point underdogs.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 2-7 ATS in the last nine games in this matchup.
  • The Panthers are 2-6 SU in their last eight games vs divisional opponents.
  • The Falcons are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games.

The Falcons halted a three-game SU losing streak with last week’s victory over the Jets, but remain winless ATS in their past four contests. The typically high-flying Falcons have been limited to just 16.6 points per game over their past four, but have averaged 35.9 ppg in 10 straight SU wins against NFC opponents, covering in eight of those outings.

The Panthers are coming off their third outright win as road underdogs this season, but have struggled on home turf, losing outright in their past two, both as home favorites. Carolina has averaged just 10 ppg in its past two outings, and has produced a meager 15.25 ppg during a 1-3 SU and 0-3-1 ATS run at Bank of America Stadium.

Atlanta has won and covered in three straight clashes with the Panthers, including a 33-16 victory as 3-point road chalk on Christmas Eve last year. The total finished OVER in the past two meetings between these divisional rivals, halting a 6-0 run for the UNDER in totals betting.
