Falcons at Panthers Betting: Game Preview
It’s time for our Falcons at Panthers Betting preview, with an overview of both teams,
Falcons at Panthers Betting: Atlanta Fighting to Stay Afloat
Now in this Falcons at Panthers Betting preview, let’s talk about the Falcons.
Atlanta got defeated by the LA Chargers in week 9 and that dropped their record to 4-5 for the season.
They handled the game very well for the first part of the game as they managed to acquire a 10-0 lead, but they allowed the Chargers to take control later on in the game.
Los Angeles ended up winning the game by a field goal as the time was about to expire.
The Falcons are still holding tied for first place in the NFC South with the Bucs, but this is also a team that has proven to be inconsistent lately.
Starting quarterback Marcus Mariota didn’t have a good time in this game as went 12 for 23 for 129 yards and zero TDs, which is equal to a 68.9 passer rating.
If Atlanta wants to have the chance at winning their division, Mariota definitely needs to have a good game versus Carolina.
There is some good news for the team as they got running back Cordarelle Patterson back after the player spend four weeks in IR.
Patterson was able to score two touchdowns, but he was outproduced by rooking running back Tyler Allgeier, who managed to rush ten times for 99 yards, which is great compred to the 13 carried for 44 yards by Patterson.
When it comes to their defensive line, Atlanta is still improving. Safety Richie Grant, a 2021 second-round pick intercepted LA’s quarterback Justin Herbert.
On the other hand, the Falcons had a hard time getting pressure on Herbert, and they ended the game with zero sacks and just two quarterback pressures.
Falcons at Panthers Betting: Carolina Back Down to Earth
Next in this Falcons at Panthers Betting preview, let’s talk about the Panthers.
Carolina was destroyed by the Bengals 42-21 on Sunday, with Cincinnati getting a 35-0 lead over the Panthers in the first half of the game.
Despite the final numbers for the game, the fact is that the Panthers were fully dominated by Joe Burrow and the Bengals.
This dropped their record to 2-7 on the season and 0-4 on road games.
Runningback D’Onta Foreman managed to rush only seven times for 23 yards, and this is quite interesting if we consider how successful he was the two weeks prior to this game as he managed to total 236 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
It’s likely that the team would want Foreman to be more involved versus the Falcons.
PJ Walker was performing very well before this matchup, but he struggled a lot versus Cincinnati.
Walker started 3 for 10 for nine yards and two interceptions, before he was sent to the bench to give Baker Mayfield a shot.
To the surprise of many, Mayfield performed well as he went 14 for 20 for 155 yards and two touchdowns, which equals to 126 passer rating.
Despite the positive performance by Mayfield, the Panthers are planning to give Walker the start one more time versus the Falcons.
We will need to wait and see if he managed to complete the full game or if he gets replaced by Mayfield again.
Falcons at Panthers Betting Pick
Last but not least we have our Falcons at Panthers Betting pick:
In previous weeks, bettors were feeling comfortable picking Carolina, and the main reason for that was Carolina’s great defensive line.
But after the team allowed 79 points in the previous two matchups, the Panthers defense is not very reliable.
With McCaffrey absent, many questions on the quarterback, and a defensive line that is currently regressing, Carolina seems to be in tanking mode right now.
The Falcons are not very impressive as of late, but they did manage to get the victory over the Panthers a couple of weeks ago, and we truly believe they are on their way to defeating Carolina one more time.
