The Odds

As of now, the Panthers are the favored team to win. According to USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds, the Panthers are at -152 odds. That means that someone can bet $152 and get a $100 payout. The Falcons are at +130 odds, which means a $100 bet would cash out at $130. The combined point total is at an over/under of 48.5. The over is favored at odds of -115, while the under is at -106. 

At an average of 3.0 points per game, the Panthers are 4-3 against the spread, while 3-4 against projected totals. That makes the Panthers an absolute toss-up. The Falcons are 4-3 against the Over/Under spreads this season. Good luck placing a bet on this one. 

Key Game Information

The Falcons are coming off a 23-22 loss to the Detroit Lions, which featured a key late-game mistake by running back Todd Gurley.
