Free Prediction: Carolina Panthers -3
Expect Carolina to build off of its first win of the season against the winless Bucs here. Here’s the key: Carolina is on a 31-14 ATS run versus poor rushing defenses allowing 130 or more rushing yards per game. The Panthers are winning these games by an average score of 22.5 to 16.3. Carolina will be able to keep it on the ground today, limiting their turnovers, to get the win and the cover. Lay the points. Courtesy of Dave Price
Free Prediction: New Orleans Saints -3
This is a statement game for the Saints to show the NFL that it is for real this season. Off a bye week, New Orleans will be fresh and well prepared. It also catches a break with Eli Manning not being at 100 percent. The Saints have an improved running game to take the pressure off of QB Drew Brees and a defense ranked sixth in the league. After 3 weeks of playing cupcakes, I have the Giants getting stung in the Superdome. New Orleans is 10-1 ATS as a favorite over the last 2 seasons, winning by an average score of 32.8 to 17.1 in these games, and the home team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. Take the Saints for 1 Unit. Courtesy of Jimmy Boyd
Free Prediction: Green Bay Packers -14
The Packers entered their bye week off a tough divisional loss to Minnesota and I expect them to come out of it with a blowout win over lowly Detroit. Remember when the Packers were upset by Cincinnati in Week 2? They followed that up with a 36-17 win over an inferior Rams team. I expect them to do major damage to another inferior team today, one they have owned forever. Green Bay is a perfect 18-0 at home against Detroit since 1992, going 12-4-2 ATS in those games and winning by an average of 13 ppg. That’s a big average margin of victory over a long period of time. Over the last 3 seasons, the Packers are 4-0 in all matchups with Detroit, winning by an average of 17 ppg. I’ll back the Packers at home today. Courtesy of Jeff Alexander
