Betting Odds: Carolina Panthers at Pittsburgh Steelers (-2.5)

  • Carolina Panthers Moneyline: +125
  • Pittsburgh Steelers Moneyline: -145 
  • Over/Under: 36
  • Kickoff: Aug. 30, 2018 – 7:30 p.m. ET

Carolina Panthers

First-rounder DJ Moore has lost some hype since the start of training camp. Devin Funchess, Torrey Smith and even Jarius Wright have worked ahead of Moore for stretches of the preseason, and last year’s second-round pick Curtis Samuel has also made his presence felt.

It’s way too early to worry about Moore’s long-term outlook with the Panthers, but early predictions that he would emerge as the offense’s top target in 2018 might’ve been a bit extreme. Amari Cooper is the only one of 13 first-round receivers drafted since 2015 to gain at least 500 yards as a rookie (per Evan Silva).

Pittsburgh Steelers

Seventy percent of the money has helped drive down the under since the total opened at 38.

James Conner has established himself as the Steelers’ backup running back, and he appears positioned to slide into a three-down role in the event workhorse Le’Veon Bell is forced to miss any time.

DeAngelo Williams averaged 19 rushing attempts and 3.7 receptions per game in 14 outings with Bell sidelined from 2015-2016, proving that the Steelers’ backup running back is one of the most fantasy-friendly handcuffs in the league.
