NFL odds and lines Week 14: Falcons vs. Panthers

Scott Cunningham

Atlanta and Carolina have had two season about as different as can be, but the latest odds aren't giving the Falcons too much over the Panthers.

The Atlanta Falcons face the Carolina Panthers in Week 14, and the latest odds have the Falcons favored by just 3.5 points. The Falcons are 11-1, but a number of their recent games have been close contests. The two teams have met once before this year, with a last-second field goal giving the game to the Falcons. Atlanta is 7-4-1 against the spread this season. Carolina has struggled all season, but their offense remains unpredictable. The Panthers are 3-9 straight up and 5-7 against the spread.

The total for the game is 47.5 points. The Panthers have hit that mark in six of their games, while the Falcons have combined with opponents to score at least 47.5 in just four games. Overall, Atlanta has gone over the total just four times this season, while Carolina has gone under five times and tied once. The Falcons average 26.4 points per game, while Carolina is posting 19.6. The Panthers defense is giving up 24.3 ppg, while Atlanta's defense gives up an average of 19.1, fifth in the league.

The Falcons have won the last five times these two NFC South rivals faced off, and seven of the previous eight.
