NFL Betting: CAROLINA PANTHERS at ATLANTA FALCONS (12/28)

PRO FOOTBALL — December 28

CAROLINA at ATLANTA
(GetThatBet Line: Falcons -3, Total 48) — This game, obviously, is for the NFC South championship. And Carolina comes into this game with a four-game winning streak. But Atlanta has stepped up its game as well. Cam Newton has rebounded from two broken bones in his lower back, and that is to be commended. But he does not have as many weapons at his disposal is does Matt Ryan, who has thrown for over 4300 yards. Julio Jones should be ago for this game, and he is the most dangerous player on the field. Atlanta is also much better in the red zone, as they are second-best in the NFL in points per red zone appearance. Yes, the Panthers have allowed only 40 points in their last three games. But it’s not likely any of those teams are in the same kind of form the Falcons are right now. Lookout for the contributions of the Devonta Freeman, who will play running back in place of Steven Jackson.
