Market Watch81% of the early bets are fading Pittsburgh.
It could be the same story again in Week 3. Cam has very little to work with at his skill positions, but perhaps Benjamin and Olsen can be enough? It's not like the Steelers D has been able to stop anybody the last couple years. People are even questioning whether or not Lebeau's scheme is still effective in today's NFL. I wouldn't go that far, but they do have an embarrassing take-away rate and seem just as susceptible to the pass as the run.
It could be bad news for Steeler-Nation that this game is on national TV since they are 1-6 in their last 7 road prime-time games. Can Big Ben turn that around? As long as he has Brown and Bell healthy, he should have a shot. The big question I have is what to make of the Panthers secondary. On paper they are all borderline NFL players, but through two weeks they've executed the scheme really well. If they keep it up, Pittsburgh's offense could be in trouble.
I'm not getting involved in this one, but I'd only consider the Panthers in this spot. They have home-field, more talent, and better results early in the season.
