Last week, the Carolina Panthers dominated the expert picks over the New York Jets, 32 to 1. And maybe they’re called experts for a reason, because that overwhelming majority was correct.
So how about this Sunday, when the Panthers host the New Orleans Saints in their second contest of 2021?

A mini-sweep here as well. Mike Florio has it 30-21 while Chris Simms has it a bit closer at 24-20.
The Saints might’ve won the majority once again, but the Panthers finally get a taker! Senior NFL reporter Albert Breer predicts a Carolina upset. His four colleagues disagree.
CBS Sports: Saints
Two more takers! Senior writer (and familiar name to the Carolinas) Will Brinson and senior fantasy writer Dave Richard are the only two CBS experts to choose the Panthers. The other six pickers went the other way.
Combined, Carolina earned a tenth of the picks New Orleans does, at 30-3.
