Steelers get the win and the cover at home

Both of these teams have been playing lights out lately, but the Steelers have been playing better on both sides of the ball lately. I look for this game to be explosive on offense for both teams, but if you can shut down the running game of the Panthers they have trouble scoring on offense which is why I like the Steelers in this game as they rank 6th in rushing defense in the NFL.
