Pittsburgh Steelers at Carolina Panthers picks and prediction:The Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0) meet the Carolina Panthers (0-2) Friday for a 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff at Bank of America Stadium. Below, we look at the Steelers vs. Panthers odds and lines, and make our best NFL picks, predictions and bets.
The Steelers fired out to a 23-0 lead through three quarters against the Detroit Lions last Saturday before settling for a 26-20 win. Pittsburgh has still covered two of its three preseason games despite Detroit earning the backdoor cover.
The Panthers struggled in a 20-3 loss last weekend against the visiting Baltimore Ravens. They have managed just 1 touchdown with 5 field goals through two preseason outings.
The STEELERS (+160) are underdogs and that makes them a tremendous value. The Panthers have shown very few signs of life in the preseason and their offense has left a lot to be desired. Enjoy the value.
Against the spread
The STEELERS +4.5 (-112) are a great pick with four and the hook if you’re not feeling them to win straight up.
While I think Pittsburgh gets it done – whether they rest a lot of starters or not – they’re a great play with the points. The Steelers are 2-1 ATS in the preseason and they would have been 3-0 ATS if not for a late fourth-quarter rally by the Lions last time out.
UNDER 34.5 (-107) is the best play on the board. Carolina has found the end zone just once so far through two preseason games and they were limited to a field goal against the Ravens last time out.
