Week 2 NFL action is underway, but FanDuel Sportsbook has already released NFL odds and lines for Week 3, giving us an early preview of next week's slate.
Saints vs Panthers Odds & Lines Week 3
All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
Moneyline: NO: (-142) | CAR: (+120)
Spread: NO: -2.5 (-110) | CAR: +2.5 (-110)
Total: N/A — Over: (N/A) | Under: (N/A)
The Saints were unable to hold off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2, suffering their first regular-season loss to them since Tom Brady arrived in 2020. New Orleans is now 1-1 after a couple of hard-fought games, whereas the Panthers are 0-2 in the Baker Mayfield era. With Carolina reeling, it's not surprising to see New Orleans as slight road favorites here on both the spread (-2.5) and moneyline (-142).
Saints vs Panthers Prediction Week 3
Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Saints: 49.1% to win
Panthers: 50.3% to win
One of these teams will bounce back with a win in Week 3 (barring a tie, of course), and the Saints seem like the better bet. They gave the Buccaneers a tough time in Week 2 without Alvin Kamara, so getting him back should help them beat a Panthers squad that has already dropped two games against beatable opponents. Bet Saints -2.5 (-110).
