Saints vs. Panthers Picks
Chris Raybon: This is an under game for me.
The Saints will be without seven offensive coaches due to COVID-19 protocols. And while the defense is banged up and will be without defensive end Marcus Davenport (shoulder) and linebacker Kwon Alexander (elbow), as well as potentially cornerback Marshon Lattimore (questionable, hand), they’re a well-coached defense that is currently No. 1 in Football Outsiders’ DVOA after finishing last season second.
Saints divisional road unders are 29-13 with Sean Payton at the helm.
The Saints are also facing Sam Darnold, who couldn’t even beat the talent-starved Jets defense’s halftime adjustments last week. The Panthers offense mustered just three points and 109 yards after halftime against the Jets, averaging just 3.5 yards per play.
The spread is a stay-away for me. Jameis Winston is 7-14-1 against the spread (ATS) as a favorite. Sam Darnold is Sam Darnold. The former Jet is 15-23-1 ATS in his career, including 12-17-1 as an underdog).
Pick: Under 44.5 (to 44)
Saints vs. Panthers Prop Picks
Adam Trautman Over 23.5 Rec Yards (-113) at FanDuel
Sean Koerner: Adam Trautman had a quiet three catches for 18 yards in Week 1 despite seeing a 28% target share with a 75% route run rate. I’m assuming Juwan Johnson’s two-touchdown performance will result in him seeing more playing time, at Trautman’s expense — but Trautman should be able to clear this number even with an expected decrease in usage.
- Bet to: 26.5
