Public Betting Information
Public bettors are currently backing the road underdog in this matchup. Of the wagers currently placed on tonight's game, 68% are taking Pittsburgh plus the four points.
OUR PREDICTION: The Panthers have out-paced teams this preseason, picking up wins against the Texans and Jaguars while averaging over 22 points in each matchup. The Steelers' backups, meanwhile, couldn't beat a lousy Colts team last week at home. Preseason games are tough to predict, especially the fourth game when most of the starters don't play. But I like Carolina in this one.
