New Orleans Saints @ Carolina Panthers Betting Preview

The second game of the regular season sees two teams who failed to get off to a winning start, the first of two live games tonight is set to be an entertaining one as Drew Brees who had a poor first game goes up against sophomore, Cam Newton.

With home advantage, Carolina will be looking to greatly improve on last weeks 10-16 defeat against NFC South rivals Tampa Bay. The Panthers can be lifted the Saints defense display against the Redskins in week 1 and will hope they can put plenty of points on the board against a Saints defense which looked very lacklustre last week.

Saints fans will be hoping that Drew Brees can complete more passes this week after a poor 46.2% completion rate and 2 interceptions were costly in the final result of their opener against the Redskins. With the NFC South looking a much tougher division to make the play-offs from this year, every rival game like this one will count with the likes of the Atlanta Falcons looking like the favourites to win the division.

New Orleans Saints @ Carolina Panthers Team News

Carolina Panthers : Panthers will be pleased that key receiver, Steve Smith is recovering well with his injury and after making some plays last week against the Buccaneers, he is likely to start this game.

Quarterback, Cam Newton will be hoping to have a better game this week with the Panthers home support behind him. Newton showed his qualities last season and will be hoping to look to repeat the similar form he showed.

There are no key injuries for the Panthers this week.

New Orleans Saints : Drew Brees will be hoping of having a strong game this week and improving his overall completion percentage, however with receiver Devery Henderson not participating in practice this could mean that we could see recently signed Greg Camarillo being included in a number of plays.

Brees main targets are likely to be Lance Moore & Jimmy Graham who both took 6 receptions and a touchdown last week. Saints fans can be pleased to see that corner, Jabari Greer has trained and is set to start against the Panthers.

The Scout’s Match Verdict

Both teams in this game definitely need a win to avoid going 0-2 which adds difficulty to any team looking to make the playoffs, this year the Panthers fans expect a stronger challenge from the Panthers for the playoffs which will mean Cam Newton will need to hit form.

With Steve Smith likely to be in strong coverage from the Saints, Carolina will need to often look to alternative ways of gaining first downs against the Saints,  although if the Saints defense repeat their performance of last week then this is likely to be another high scoring game.

This week the Saints must look to run the ball a little more, last week they didn’t get the best out of their rushing game, If New Orleans look to run the ball on some plays along with passing, I feel they have a much more balanced offense and better chance to win the game.

Overall, I feel this game will be an entertaining game with both teams having a real chance of winning the game, for me the Saints will narrowly win the game as I feel they have better options in offense than the Panthers, but if the Saints are going to win this game they are going to need to be able to lockdown Newton & Smith.
