Week five of the NFL season has started off like none we have seen. There has been a lot up in the air with all of the injuries and positive or false negative tests. Some lines are moving but we are rolling with these and looking to add to a positive week from last week!
For our first pick this week we are going to the NFC South and a match up between the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers. The Panthers are needing a win to keep pace with the Bucs and the Saints. The Falcons are desperate for a win as they have started the season 0-4 and have looked pretty bad doing it.
We are going to back the over 53 in this match up. While both teams need a win both teams struggle defensively. Atlanta has been averaging 26 points per game on offense however they are allowing 34 points per game which is ranked 31st in the NFL. The Panthers are more balanced with averaging 25 points per game on offense and allowing 25 on defense. Both teams will need to score to keep up with the other and a desperate Atlanta team will pull out all of the stops offensively to get the win!
