Analyzing The Carolina Panthers Vs Pittsburgh Steelers Odds, My Final Score Prediction & TV Info
Analysis: Carolina had its modest two-game preseason winning streak snapped in its narrow 17-16 home loss to New England in Week 3. The Panthers will turn to veteran backup quarterbacks Derek Anderson and Joe Webb in order to get the win in this preseason ender
Pittsburgh got beaten around like a rag doll in its humbling 43-19 road loss to Buffalo in Week 3 and will give the keys to the car to backups Michael Vick, Landry Jones and Tahj Boyd in this affair.

While 64 percent of the betting public likes Pittsburgh to get the ‘W’ and accompanying ATS victory, I disagree, mostly because Carolina has the better set of backup quarterbacks, not to mention more of a reason to head into the regular season coming off a confidence-boosting win.
The Panthers may be 0-6 ATS in their last half-dozen meetings against the Steelers, but Pittsburgh has struggled in the month of September, going just 1-8 ATS in their last nine games in the month.
Carolina’s defense has been pretty rock-solid this preseason and picked off future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady twice last week despite suffering a narrow defeat.

I like the Panthers to get the road win behind the strong-armed Anderson and dual-threat Webb. On the other side Vick will get a chance to earn the backup spot in Steel City.
I am picking the Panthers as the smart bet over the Steelers. My final score prediction is Carolina 20 and Pittsburgh 17.
