The Arizona Republic: Saints 24, Panthers 21

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The Panthers have lost both of their games this season by a combined five points. They will suffer another close loss against the division rival Saints."

Draft Kings: Take the Saints to cover vs. Panthers

It writes: "The Saints’ receiving corps of Chris Olave, Michael Thomas, and Jarvis Landry has continued to impress, while Baker Mayfield and the Panthers are still struggling to find their groove. As long as Jameis Winston is able to rest up and stay healthy after playing through a back injury on Sunday against the Bucs, the Saints should be able to cover the spread in Week 3."

NFL Week 3 odds:

Fan Duel: Saints will cover against Panthers in Week 3

Tyler Maher writes: "One of these teams will bounce back with a win in Week 3 (barring a tie, of course), and the Saints seem like the better bet. They gave the Buccaneers a tough time in Week 2 without Alvin Kamara, so getting him back should help them beat a Panthers squad that has already dropped two games against beatable opponents."

Fansided: Go with the Saints in game vs. Panthers

Joe Summers writes: "Michael Thomas' return alongside Jarvis Landry and rookie Chris Olave give the Saints plenty of weapons to torture Carolina's weak secondary, while the time is ticking on Rhule's tenure as head coach. Look for New Orleans to win a sixth consecutive game as road favorites as Mayfield ensures a miserable day thanks to the Saints' defensive pressure."
