Mercedes-Benz Superdome

The 5-7 Saints look to end a three-game home losing streak when they take on the fading Panthers on Sunday. New Orleans kept their playoff hopes alive last week when they held on for a 35-32 win over Pittsburgh, and enter Week 14 tied for top spot in the NFC South with Atlanta. The Saints have also seen the UNDER prevail in seven of their last nine outings.

A season which started with a pair of SU wins has quickly unraveled for the 3-8-1 Panthers, winless in their last seven while going 3-4 ATS. Carolina is 0-4-1 SU in their last five on the road, 1-4 ATS, and suffered a 28-10 beating at the hands of the Saints in Week 9, failing to cover as three-point home underdogs. But the Panthers have enjoyed recent success in visits to the Superdome, 8-4 SU in their last 12 and 11-2 ATS in their last 13 trips to the Big Easy.
