Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons Free Pick

The winner in this series has been able to extend the margin in recent years, but that wasn't the case in their earlier meeting this season. The Panthers got the narrow 20-17 win and I think that this one may fall in the same range making taking the points the way to go.
