This final NFL betting tuneup shouldn’t have many starters in action especially the two starting quarterbacks. Week 4 NFL odds should have the Steelers as small football betting favorites in this matchup.
Football betting on Pittsburgh has been popular in recent seasons with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger leading the way. It is doubtful he will see more than a series or two in this NFL betting matchup. Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme may not play much more according to football betting information.
That should mean this football betting matchup will be decided by backup quarterbacks Byron Leftwich of the Steelers and Matt Moore of the Panthers. Pittsburgh rookie running back Rashard Mendenhall may also be a factor in this game according to football betting experts as he continues to get playing time. Rookie receiver Limas Sweed will also be looking to get playing time since he has missed most of the preseason with an injury according to football betting information.
This could be a low scoring game in terms of football betting numbers. Both teams will likely play it conservatively, not looking to risk injury and that could result in a low scoring football betting result. The Panthers will probably do a lot of running with rookie Jonathan Stewart and backups Labrandon Toefield and Nick Goings according to football betting information. Starter DeAngelo Williams probably won’t see much playing time according to NFL betting information. Usually wide receiver Steve Smith wouldn’t play much but considering he will miss the first two regular season games he might see more action than normal in this NFL betting contest.
Football betting trends in the preseason don’t do you a whole lot of good in the final week of the preseason. Both teams are looking to avoid injury and football betting trends really are meaningless. As you consider the football betting odds on this game you may want to look more at the total than the side with your wagering.
