Panthers vs. Saints TV Coverage: FOX
The Panthers and Saints are both 8-3, so the winner of this game will take over sole possession of first place in the NFC South. This is a huge game because the NFC is so tightly packed near the top that 10 wins might not get you into the playoffs. The Panthers have won four straight games, as their offense has taken off but the news is not all good for Carolina, as they once again lost tight end Greg Olsen to a foot injury. Carolina is 5-1 ATS on the road this season with three games going over and three going under. The Panthers are scoring 22.5 points per game and giving up 18.8 points per contest.
The Saints had their 8-game winning streak snapped last week in a loss to the Rams. New Orleans features a potent offense that is scoring 29.3 points per game and their defense has been better this season, as they are giving up just over 20 points per contest. The Saints are 3-2 ATS at home with three games going over and two going under.
Carolina has won four of the last six meetings in this series, with five of the last six going over. The teams have split their last four games in New Orleans with the last three going over.
Panthers vs. Saints Free Picks
The Saints looked vulnerable last week against the Rams, but I expect them to bounce back with a big effort at home on Sunday. I will lay the points with New Orleans and also play the game over the total.
Panthers vs. Saints Week 13 ATS Pick: Saints -4 and Over 47.5 at BetCris

Date and Time: Sunday, December 3, 2017, 8:30 p.m. ET
Location: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, WA
Week 13 Opening NFL Odds at BetCris: Eagles -3, O/U 48
Eagles vs. Seahawks TV Coverage: NBC
The league’s best team, the Philadelphia Eagles, should get a big test on Sunday Night Football, as they visit the Seattle Seahawks. The Eagles come into this game at 10-1, while the Seahawks are 7-4. Philadelphia has looked unstoppable for most of this season, as they lead the league in scoring at almost 32 points per game, while they are giving up just 17.4 points per contest, 3rd in the league. Philadelphia is 4-1 ATS on the road, with three of the five games going over the total.
The Seahawks got an expected win over San Francisco last week to keep them in playoff contention. Despite the win, the Seahawks are not a dominant team. They are all about Russell Wilson on offense and the defense is nowhere near as good as in past seasons, as both Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor are out. Seattle is 1-4 ATS at home with three of the five games going over. They are scoring just over 24 points per game this season and giving up just about 19 per contest.
These teams met last year in Seattle and the Seahawks won 26-15. Seattle has won and covered each of the last three games in the series, with two of the three going under. The Seahawks have won five of the last six at home in this series and they are 5-1 ATS.
Eagles vs. Seahawks Free Picks
The Eagles are rolling and Seattle’s defense simply isn’t good enough to slow them down. I will take Philadelphia and also play the game over the total.
Eagles vs. Seahawks Week 13 ATS Pick: Eagles -3 and Over 48 at BetCris
Eagles vs. Seahawks Score Prediction: Eagles 34, Seahawks 24
