We’re heading into the final weeks of the NFL regular season, and the action is hotting up! In week 14, we have a very interesting NFC South matchup, as the Carolina Panthers host the Atlanta Falcons. We’ll be sharing everything you need to know about the two franchises, as well as our latest NFL betting tips!
The Atlanta Falcons hosted the current defending Super Bowl champions, and NFC South rivals, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their latest matchup. After going into half-time with a close 17-20, the Falcons were unable to score in the second half, with the Bucs running away with the game. Now, Atlanta are 5-7 on the year, and are joint record with their upcoming opponents in the Panthers. The two division rivals have already played each other once this season - a 13-19 loss for the Falcons.
After a disappointing 10-33 loss to the Miami Dolphins in their latest matchup, the Carolina Panthers headed into their bye week also with a 5-7 record. There was plenty of room for improvement from their latest defeat, and headed back to Carolina with a lot to answer for. On top of that, the Panthers will be without their franchise running back Christian McCaffrey due to injury. Now, they’ll be looking to bounce back with a win on Sunday afternoon as they host their division rivals.
With everything taken into consideration, we’re tipping the Carolina Panthers to be fresh off their bye week and get the home win on Sunday afternoon. It will be tight - like many divisional clashes are - but the Panthers should edge it. Ultimately, their offensive weapons should secure the win. While the Falcons could pose a threat with their own offense, we are predicting that Carolina will get the win.
