NFL Football Betting Odds:
The Panthers pounce into this Thursday Night Football contest sporting a 6-2 record that pegs them as the 2nd best team in the NFC South. On top of that, Carolina enters this week’s matchup riding a 3-game win streak. However, with the 7-1 New Orleans Saints leading the division, Carolina needs some help if they’re to find themselves at the top of the division. Fortunately, Carolina has yet to face the Saints this season, so the Panthers could propel themselves to the No. 1 spot in the South all by their lonesome. And even if that doesn’t pan out, the Panthers should still be in the running for a Wild Card berth. As for this Thursday’s matchup, it’s not surprising to see the NFL football betting odds peg Carolina as the underdog. After all, the Steelers are picking up momentum and are 5-1 in their last 6 matches against Carolina.
Players to Watch: Cam Newton (1,893 passing yards, 15 TD, 4 INT), Christian McCaffrey (502 rushing yards, 3 TD, 1 F), and Devin Funchess (445 receiving yards, 3 TD, 36 REC).
The Steelers enter this Thursday Night Football contest with a 5-2-1 record that pegs them as the best team in the AFC north. With the 5-3 Cincinnati Bengals hot on the Steelers trail, Pittsburgh cannot afford to lose a game in the coming weeks. Fortunately they have a pretty good track record against Carolina. Nevertheless, the numbers don’t exactly peg Pittsburgh as the favorite this Thursday. Right now the Steelers are scoring 28.4 per game and they’re also giving up 23.5. The Panthers on the other hand, are scoring 27.5 per game and are giving up 22.5. While the numbers don’t favor the Steelers, they don’t exactly favor Carolina either. All in all this should be a bit of a shootout and will certainly come down to the final plays of the game.
Players to Watch: Ben Roethlisberger (2,560 passing yards, 16 TD, 7 INT), James Conner (706 rushing yards, 9 TD, 3 F), and JuJu Smith-Schuster (672 receiving yards, 2 TD, 53 REC).
