The Panthers pay a rare visit to Pittsburgh for a rare pairing of Super Bowl contenders on Thursday night. The Steelers are 5–2–1 and hold a half-game lead on the Bengals in the AFC North. Bell has faced the Panthers once before. He carried the ball 21 times for 147 yards back on September 21st, 2014 as a member of the Steelers. Bell didn’t score a touchdown that game, so the 28.
The Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0) will do battle with the Carolina Panthers (1-2 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. Thursday at 7:00 p.m. ET in the final preseason game for both sides.
The Steelers have enjoyed a productive 3-0 SU/2-0-1 ATS run through the exhibition schedule, including a road win last week in Tennessee. For the Panthers, it has been the complete opposite, with more questions than answers, and a foot injury to QB Cam Newton as the biggest concern.

Against the Spread (?)
The Steelers (-3.5, +100) are worth a look here, as Dobbs is a solid QB who has shown he can run the offense with efficiency. The Panthers (+3.5, -120) have to be concerned with their QB situation, as Grier has shown he cannot read a defense, and Heinicke has struggled. Online gambling account. Allen is the best bet behind Newton, but he’ll have very few weapons to work with in this one.
The projected total of 33 should be right on the money. It’s difficult to wager on Week 4 games, but generally it’s the UNDER (-110) which hits with a plethora of reserves fighting in the preseason finales.
