Point Spread Pick : The Panthers are on a 8-game win streak and face an opponent that they beat both times last season. The Saints may be without their starting right tackle Zach Strief and NT Broderick Bunkley and are playing on a short week. Carolina backers can get a field plus the hook at the square sports books and we feel that’s the key in what should be a close divisional match-up.
