The Atlanta Falcons and the Carolina Panthers will have a playoff berth on the line on Sunday as those two teams square off at the Georgia Dome with the home team the betting favorite at the sportsbooks.
Carolina enters the final week of the regular season atop the NFC South at 6-8-1 SU, with Atlanta at 6-9 SU in second place - meaning the winner of Sunday's game wins the division and the loser misses the playoffs altogether.
The Falcons topped the Panthers 19-17 in their first meeting of the season on November 16, but they failed to cover the spread as 2.5-point road favorites in that game. Carolina is 4-1 ATS in the last five games between the teams.
The Atlanta Falcons currently sport a record of 6-9, and have posted a corresponding betting slate of 7-8 ATS. The Carolina Panthers are 6-8-1 and 7-8 ATS. Betting totals have seen the Atlanta Falcons post a 6-9 over under record this season, while the Carolina Panthers have gone 8-7 against the number.
