NFL Week 9 Predictions: Saints vs. Panthers Vegas Odds & NFL Picks: A week after losing a NFL picks contest to the Cleveland Browns 30-17 at home, the defending Super Bowl champions played like champs against the Pittsburgh Steelers in a 20-10 NFL predictions win on Halloween Night. The New Orleans Saints (5-3) now travel to Carolina to take on the Carolina Panthers (1-6) looking to extend their NFL picks winning streak. Vegas odds have placed the Saints as-6½(-110) point NFL predictions favorites on the road.
The Saints beat the Steelers with a relentless pass rush on defense and Drew Brees’ pinpoint-passing on offense. Brees was 20-22 in the second half of the NFL picks contest with two touchdown passes and the star quarterback has now thrown 16 touchdown passes in the 2010 NFL picks season. Marques Colston has caught a touchdown pass in the past two games while Lance Moore has provided a slot presence. The defense still has not made the big plays they created a year ago but their aggressive play against the Steelers was a blueprint they can follow for future NFL predictions match-ups.
Carolina has played tough defense all NFL picks season, including a top-five pass defense, but the Panthers’ offense is one of the worst units in NFL. Quarterback Matt Moore is back in the starting line-up but he has thrown just 5 TD passes against 10 interceptions. He has not gotten much help from the running game as both DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart have struggled badly. The Panthers defense has limited big plays but they have not made enough big plays themselves.
New Orleans should have all the momentum in this week 9 NFL picks contest and should cover the Vegas spread on the road.
