Monday Night Football: Saints vs Panthers, Prediction: Two Props & a Total cover


The Saints travel to the East Coast as they take on the Carolina Panthers in the 1st game of a Monday Night Football double header!

The Saints squeaked out a win against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1, while Bryce Young and the Panthers were beaten by the Atlanta Falcons.

Young will make his home debut in front of Panther fans and a nationally televised audience as they play on ESPN.

Let’s break this game down!

Monday Night Double Header

Monday Night Football Saints Panthers Prediction

These NFC South rivals face off with the Panthers winning the season series 2-0 last season.

Carolina hosted the Saints last season and beat them 22-14 as Baker Mayfield beat Jameis Winston.

Both offenses have a new look, but I do not think they will be able to score very much.

Last time these teams played, we saw a boring 10-7 game, and unfortunately for viewers, I see something similar happening Monday night.

The Panthers managed just 10 points in Week 1, on just 146 passing yards. The Saints scored 16 but were able to move the ball a little easier.

I see the Saints winning a dumpster fire of a game that stays well under 40 points.

The Pick: NO/CAR Under 39.5 (-110) Bovada

Monday Night Football Player Prop Bets

Chuba Hubbard Over 35.5 Rushing Yards (-110) Bovada

Monday Night Football Saints Panthers Prediction

Hubbard is technically the 2nd string back, but he still saw 9 carries in Week 1. He made the most of them, running for 60 yards, including a 21 yard rush.

Hubbard should see an increase in work load and a more evenly split load with Miles Sanders.

Chuba cleared this line last year against New Orleans, rushing for 69 yards on 21 carries, however this was without Sanders.

Regardless, I think Hubbard could breakout and get us the 36 yards that we need.

He’s cleared in 6 of his L10 games, and had 125 yards in his last game in Carolina.

Hayden Hurst over 3.5 Receptions (+135) Bovada

Monday Night Football Saints Panthers Prediction

Hurst was Young’s favorite target in Week 1. He caught 5 of his 7 targets for 41 yards and a TD.

He was Carolina’s top pass catcher in terms of yards, TDs, and receptions. I see him playing a major role this week as well.

The Saints should dominate, meaning the Panthers will be throwing the rock more. Young will get pressured and will look for easy check downs to his backs or Hurst over the middle.

For plus money, four catches seems easy for a guy that had 7 targets last week. Miles Sanders had the next most catches and targets on the team.

Clearly they lack some depth at WR, and will rely on their RB and TE to help out in the pass catching realm.

Look for Hurst to get some easy catches early on our way to a sweat free winner.
