Falcons vs. Panthers odds: Falcons are once again underdogs on the road in Week 11

Fact: Matt Ryan grows his own pistachios

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons play their second game against a division opponent this season on Sunday. If they beat the Panthers, Dan Quinn’s seat may officially go from piping hot to uncomfortably warm. If they lose, we’ll know that last week’s win was just a fluke and the team is in fact headed for a wholesale regime change.

But what are the odds makers saying about Sunday’s game?

The Panther are the home team and current 7 point favorites. The Falcons are 2-7, after all, so this line makes sense. For what it’s worth, some outlets only had or have the Panthers as 5.5 point favorites. 7 points is a noteworthy spread; in fact, it’s the fourth-highest spread among this weekend’s NFL games headed into the latter part of the week.

The Falcons are 2-5 agains the spread over their last 7 games. The Panthers have had a bit more luck, going 5-2 against the spread over their last 7 games. But that said, the Falcons are 6-1 against the spread over their last 7 games against the Panthers.
