The Falcons go into this Sunday looking for home field advantage in the playoffs. In order to wrap up the NFC South, the Falcons need a win Sunday and also need the Saints and Bears to both lose. Although the Falcons are looking for a win, I don’t believe they will be looking to blowout the Panthers, most likely resting their starters if they have at least a 2 possession lead in the second half. The Falcons are only 2-3-1 against the spread in their last 6 home games against the Panthers. My NFL predictions for this game would be to Take the Carolina Panthers on the point spread at +14.5 (-105) and the UNDER 41 points.
