Carolina Panthers vs Atlanta Falcons Bet Builder Tips: Back Falcons in 7.00 Bet Builder
Carolina Panthers vs Atlanta Falcons Bet Builder Tips: Thursday, November 10th
The 4-5 Atlanta Falcons are 2.5-point favourites over the 2-7 Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. This is the second meeting in three weeks between these teams, with Atlanta coming out overtime winners on Sunday, October 30th. With the NFC South looking like the NFL’s weakest division, the Falcons are surprisingly in with a real shot at the playoffs, but they cannot afford to drop games like this if they are to beat out Tampa Bay for top spot.
A change of head coach has had no impact for the Panthers, who are 1-3 in the Steve Wilks era. Down in 23rd in points scored and 29th in points allowed, Carolina was thumped 42-21 by the Cincinnati Bengals last time out. They are just 3-6 against this spread this season. Atlanta is 6-3 ATS.

Carolina Panthers vs Atlanta Falcons Preview
Fri, Nov 11. 01:15 (UK time)
The Falcons keep putting up points, placing seventh in scoring this season. The defence is subpar, but they will be more than happy to get into another shootout with Carolina here. There has been over 40.5 points in seven of the Falcons’ nine games so far – we are backing that to become eight of 10.
Often trailing throughout the season, the Panthers have leaked a lot of rushing yards per game (139.3, fifth-most in the league). Part of this can be attributed to game script, as they are around average in yards per rush. Still, the Falcons rely on the ground attack, and particularly from their quarterback Marcus Mariota. The Honolulu native had 43 yards on the ground when the teams last met, and has gone over his rushing yards line in four of the last five.

Only five teams have been intercepted more than the Panthers. For all Atlanta’s points allowed, they do a good job at forcing turnovers. The Falcons have eight interceptions on the season, and are sixth in turnover rate. P.J. Walker has three interceptions in his last two games, but the Panthers are sticking with him as the starter for this game. Walker to throw a pick is worth backing.
The Falcons might have lost three of their last five, but they are well-deserving of favourites status for this game. Carolina are a team without an identity, with uncertainty at quarterback and surely with a front office thinking about the 2023 Draft. Atlanta might not be stacked with elite talent, and they are vulnerable defensively, yet there is clearly a path for them to win games which has been trodden four times already this season.
