Carolina Panthers vs New Orleans Saints Odds
The situation between Carolina and New Orleans plays perfectly into the dominant trends for this Week 17 NFL matchup.
The Panthers are hungry for wins and to beef up Cam Newton's rookie QB records. They are also 7-1 ATS past 8 season finales.
The Saints can rest with their playoff spot locked down and with Drew Brees passing Dan Marino's yardage record last week. They are 2-11 ATS past 13 season-ending games.
So the trends mesh with the motivational scenario and you can expect the opening Saints vs Panthers point spread to reflect this reality.

We all have seen the show that Carolina Panthers quarterback and first round pick, Cam Newton has put on this season. He has been well worth that number one pick PLUS more than anyone could have imagined. Cam will (barring injury in week 17) will become the first QB to pass for 4,000 yards and rush for 500 yards in a single season. Right now Cam has 3,893 and 674 rushing yards....
So far, Carolina Panthers rookie Cam Newton has live up to the hype of the number one overall draft pick. This season, he broke rookie records for rushing touchdowns and passing yards by a rookie quarterback.
However, the most impressive thing he did over Christmas weekend was this 49-yard run against the Tampa Bay Bucs:
Ever get a bank account boner? Let me paint a picture for you. Imagine buying Cam Newton’s game-worn BCS pants before Newton is even drafted. You spend $1,500 and are instantly called a “f-ing moron.” Then the guy is drafted #1 overall and then goes out and accounts for 34 Panthers’ TDs. Rookie of the Year, rookie records destroyed, blah, blah, blah. But then the guy shows...

NFL Quarterback Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan sit courtside during the season opener against the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte — Cam and the G.O.A.T. watched Mj’s Bobcats beat the Bucks 96-95 — Are these the two best athletes the world has ever...
I love Cam Newton.
Now that that’s out of the way it’s time for me to swipe those cute little buns across the fiery pits of racial reality. Beware there are about to be some 3rd degree burns on those talented little ass cheeks.
ESPN posted an interview with Cam that will be in their Magazine next month where he touches on all of those who criticized him when he was coming into...

Look for Panthers rookie Cam Newton to be a little extra motivated this week against the Saints after missing out on the Pro Bowl.
Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Eli Manning made the NFC team ahead of Newton.
Newton has combined for 34 touchdowns, while Manning has 27.
Rookie quarterbacks Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers and Andy Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals were both selected first alternates for the Pro Bowl.
The Carolina Panthers are hot right now as they have won two games in a row and four of their last five. In their last two games, they have outscored their opponents 76-29! The Saints have won seven games in a row. They need a win and a 49ers loss to the Rams to secure the #2 seed in the NFC for the playoffs. I don’t see the Niners losing to the Rams. The Saints won the...
After clinching third place in the NFC South by virtue of their 48-16 blowout of Tampa Bay, the Panthers' 2012 schedule is pretty well set.
Besides divisional games, the NFC South will be paired with the NFC East and AFC West next season. The Panthers also will face the third-place teams from the NFC North (Chicago) and NFC West (the winner of Sunday's Arizona-Seattle game...
