NFL Odds: Carolina Panthers -4 / Over/Under: 39.5
Why Bet Pittsburgh +4 Points
The Pittsburgh Steelers look to finish the preseason at 2-2 after beating the New Orleans Saints 27-14 in Week 3 as backup quarterback Landry Jones passed 206 yards and one touchdown. Antonio Brown and Sammie Coates combined for 140 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Le’Veon Bell added 21 yards on three carries. Defensively, Vince Williams led the Steelers with eight tackles while Javon Hargrave added one sack.
Why Bet Carolina -4 Points
The Carolina Panthers are coming off a humbling 19-17 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 3. Veteran backup quarterback Joe Webb passed for 123 yards and two touchdowns in the loss while Devin Funchess and Keyarris Garrett combined for 83 receiving yards on six catches. Cameron Artis-Payne rushed for a team-high 28 yards on nine carries while David Mayo led the Panthers with six tackles and Thomas Davis added one sack in the narrow loss.
Expert Prediction and Betting Pick
I’m going to get right to the point by saying that I like Carolina to get the win as both of their backups, Joe Webb and Derek Anderson are infinitely better than Pittsburgh’s wildly inconsistent Landry Jones. The Steelers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in September and 7-3-2 ATS in their last 12 road games, but the Panthers are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall. Carolina covers to finish the preseason at 2-2.
