|08-29-19||Steelers v. Panthers +4||Top||19-25||Win||100||29 h 42 m||Show|
Ricky’s 10* BEWARE OF DOG TOP DOG play on the Carolina Panthers.
Neither team will start any of their starters here. But after going 3-0 to open the pre-season, I believe that the Steelers are definitely going to “go through the motions” today. At 1-2 though, the Panthers still have issues to work out at key positions.
The verdict: These teams have played against each other every pre-season since 2003 and Pittsburgh has won the last two. The home side also plays with the added revenge factor tonight. These two key reasons, combined with the home field advantage do indeed make Carolina the correct call in this matchup in my opinion!
|08-25-19||Steelers v. Titans UNDER 40.5||Top||18-6||Win||100||35 h 32 m||Show|
Ricky’s 10* TOTAL SUPER BLOWOUT on the under Steelers/Titans.
The Titans beat the Eagles in Week 1, but they came up short at home vs. the Patriots in Week 2. Overall Tennessee is 2-8 SU/ATS in its last ten in the preseason. The Titans have a bit of a QB controversy going on right now with Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill. Pittsburgh is 2-0 in the preseason and 8-2 SU/ATS in its last ten. Ben Roethlisberger sees his first action of the season for Pittsburgh and last year in Week 3 vs. these very Titans he was 11 of 18 passing in the 16-6 win.
The verdict: These teams employ a similar game plan, with short crossing routes combined with a bruising running game; expect that to translate into another low-scoring battle between these clubs in their 2019 Week 3 preseason contest; play the under!
