Why bet on Carolina versus Atlanta?
In the first head-to-head, the Panthers were oh so close to locking down a victory against the rival Falcons. P.J. Walker threw a 62 yards pass to D.J. Moore that went for a touchdown.
Moore got so excited about scoring the TD that he lifted his helmet off his head. The refs assessed the Panthers a 15-yard penalty that resulted in a missed extra point.
In overtime, Atlanta got the field goal to win 37-34. If not for Moore’s blunder, Carolina may have won the game. The rematch takes place on the Panthers’ field. So Carolina should be fired up to get their revenge.

Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers Final Betting Prediction
Most trends points to an Atlanta win and cover. Also, visually at least, the Panthers were the better team in the first game.
So if all of that is true, why is the public on the ATL? Atlanta blew a game against the Chargers, a much better team than the Panthers. In addition, the public likes to make bets based on trends and there are close to zero positive trends for Carolina.
But the public isn’t always right. The game happens on Carolina’s field, the Falcons have gone 0-3 ATS in their last 3, and the Panthers are 2-1 ATS in their last 3.
Carolina’s non-cover happened versus Joe Burrow and the Bengals on the road. Taking the points makes sense.
