Panthers vs. Steelers 12/18/22 NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far
The season isn’t playing out quite how some Carolina fans hoped it would at the start of the season. Still, they’re very much in the running in the NFC South, where the competition isn’t always exactly fierce.
This has been part of the reason why Carolina goes into December with some hope still, as their final run of fixtures places them against teams with mostly negative records.
Sam Darnold is still some way from reaching the level of performances that fans were hoping him to achieve when he was a first-round pick quarterback, and the Panthers are mostly stuck relying on their defense to keep them in games for the most part instead. On the other hand, Darnold has shown glimpses of talent, and fans hope that an extended run in the team will be enough to help him realize his suspected potential.
In many ways, this is seen as a season of transition for the Panthers, who are still working out whether interim head coach Steve Wilks has what it takes to elevate the team to the desired level. However, he knows that if he performs well, he could start next season with an exciting challenge on his hands, so he will be doing everything he can to keep his team in the mix for the NFC South, starting with Panthers vs. Steelers 12/18/22.
His side’s defense will need to play a big role in any team success, as they’ve consistently been the only line to hold up their end as the Panthers have limped through matches.
Despite the massive lack of inspiration, Panthers fans can still have some hope since the NFC South offers some rather unimpressive competition. Winning it with a negative record is very possible, as the Panthers showed in 2014. They might not even need to find the most spectacular form to give themselves a shot at partaking in the postseason.
Ideally, this wouldn’t be left to hoping that the NFC South’s other sides are bad enough to let them slip through. Instead, the Panthers should make things click so that the rest of the season is in their own hands. Let’s see how they do in Panthers vs. Steelers 12/18/22.
Looking at the performance of their competition in the AFC North this year, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Pittsburgh is in with a good shot of securing a playoff spot. However, the Steelers have been just as disappointing as the rest. Their 4-7 record going into December means the postseason is likely to be played without them.
The realization of Kenny Pickett as a star QB for the future is ample compensation, though, and should get Steelers fans excited for what the team has in store in the coming years.
The team also seems to be almost invincible in Monday Night Football, a pattern they’ll hope to carry over into Panthers vs. Steelers 12/18/22 along with the rest of their games.
Panthers vs. Steelers 12/18/22 Prediction
Neither side has given their fans too much to cheer about this season. And while the Panthers go into Panthers vs. Steelers 12/18/22 as the bookmaker’s favorite, a win is far from certain. In fact, if Pickett can show his form isn’t a flash in the pan, CXSports’ pick would be for the Pittsburgh Steelers to win.
