Panthers vs. Saints Prediction and Odds

This is a fairly new series, with these sides only facing each other for the first time in 1995, when the Panthers won 20-3. Since then, they’ve had the opportunity to play each other twice a year in the NFC South, though, so they’ve managed to cram in a lot of minutes against each other in the last 25 years or so.

The Saints currently lead the series 29-27 but the Panthers know that a win during the Panthers vs. Saints 01/08/23 will have them breathing right down New Orleans’s neck as they push for parity.

The Saints are also only just edging ahead in the points scored in the series too, with 1245 to the Panthers’ 1212.

Panthers vs. Saints Odds and Statistics

The Saints’ longest period of dominance in the series started in 2000 with a resounding 24-6 win, after which they had 4 more wins on the trot. This 5 game stretch is a run they’ve come close to breaking a few times since then, but they keep faltering in the 5th game.

On the other hand, the Panthers have never managed to achieve a 5-game winning streak in the series, being capped on the 4th game on multiple occasions.

Their one game in the postseason against each other came in 2018 when the sides juked it out in the 2018 NFC Wild Card Game where the Saints won 31-26.

The Panthers won the last match in the series 22-14, which was in October this season, but since 2017, the Saints have definitely enjoyed more success overall.

Panthers vs. Saints NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far

Panthers

Interim Coach Steve Wilks has worked a minor miracle in Carolina, leaving his team in a position to still win the NFC South, and best of all, it’s in their own hands. He’s certainly been helped out by the relative lack of competition in the division, but we shouldn’t undermine the crucial role that he’s played in turning this team around.

When he came in, the side had won just 1 of their first 5 games. He’s now chasing a winning record for his side under his tutelage, and one can’t help but wonder just where they’d be had he been in charge at the beginning of the season.

The Buccaneers still have their own claim to the division title, though, so there’s no need for Carolina to get carried away yet. Yes, they’ve improved vastly, but they need to focus on building on that to see how far Wilks can really take them. It’d be a surprise if he’s not offered a permanent role.

Saints

The NFC South looks out of the reach of New Orleans now, but it’s impressive that they still vaguely remained in the running for so long. Of course, we’d mainly attribute this to the poor quality in NFC South rather than anything the Saints have done on the field. But still, it’s impressive that a side with so much uncertainty managed to stay in the discussion for so long.

Things will probably be out of their hands come the final day of the season but hopefully, they’ve started looking at QB options for the future.

Prediction For Panthers vs. Saints 01/08/23

Carolina has been one of the success stories of the season, and their form should carry over until the end.
