The 10-2 Atlanta Falcons travel to Carolina to meet their division rivals, the 1-11 Panthers, and are the NFL lock of week 14 giving 7 ½ points.
The Falcons have been an outstanding team against the line this year, going 8-4 against the line with a 4-2 record on the road against the bookmaker’s number. Atlanta have covered their last four and their last three as a road favourite. Carolina, meanwhile, have covered only three times this season and only once when the line was set at lower than 9. The Panthers are the Paterson’s Curse of the NFL: stay clear or you will be itching for weeks.
