NFL point spread: Panthers vs. Packers, Saints vs. Texans

NFL Week 11 point spread and betting odds preview of the games Carolina Panthers vs. Green Bay Packers and the New Orleans Saints vs. Houston Texans.

NFL point spread: Panthers vs. Packers, Saints vs. Texans We continue our Week 11 NFL point spread and odds preview with the Carolina Panthers (4-5) and their visit to the Green Bay Packers (8-1) this Sunday. The Packers are holding their top position on the NFC North table and the bookmakers are confident Green Bay will add one more "W" to their record. At the online sportsbook Bodog Sports the point spread on the Carolina Panthers vs. Green Bay Packers game is currently sitting at -10 points chalk the Packers with a total of 37.5 points. The bookie has listed the Packers as odds favorite at -550 and the Panther are underdog with odds +375. Betting trends show that Carolina is 2-4 against the spread in its last 6 games and Green Bay is 8-1-1 against the spread in its last 10 games.

 The Carolina Panthers lost at home last week to the Atlanta Falcons 20-13, but they are still a contender in the NFC South, behind Tampa Bay. Wide Receiver Steve Smith remains questionable for the Week 11 game, but RB DeShaun Foster and CB Ken Lucas have been upgraded to probable and will be a game-day decision. The Green Bay Packers, on the other side, had no problem putting the smack-down on the Vikings last week at home, winning the game 0-34 and it's obvious that they are looking forward to the Super Bowl. Most of their injured players have been upgraded to probable, except linebacker Tracy White, who is still doubtful for Week 11.

 The Week 11 football game between the New Orleans Saints (4-5) and the Houston Texans (4-5) is much harder to predict. The Saints seemed to have recovered from the 0-4 start with four straight wins and last week the team was looking forward to the top spot on the NFC South table, but 37-29 upset by the Rams held New Orleans back. At Bodog Sports the point spread for the New Orleans Saints vs. Houston Texans match-up has been posted as a "pick", meaning that whichever team wins the game, automatically covers the spread, but at another betting website Bookmaker, the point spread is favoring the Texans -1.5 points. New Orleans is 3-9 against the spread in its last 12 games and Houston is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games.

 Even though the Houston Texans are at the bottom of the AFC South, the team has not thrown the towel yet, beating the Raiders on the road last week 24-17. The Texans and the Saints match very closely statistically, but Houston is edging the Saints defensively with 311.5 yards allowed per game, compared to New Orleans with 352.1 yards allowed on average. DE Charles Grant is still questionable for the Saints and DT Brian Young is out for Week 11, which could make the Houston's job easier.
