In one of the most exciting TNF match-ups of 2018, the Carolina Panthers travel to Heinz Field to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittsburgh has a slim lead on the AFC North while Carolina looks to sneak up on the first-place New Orleans Saints in the NFC South. Big game for both teams. Here are five interesting prop bets to keep an eye on. All odds from FanDuel Sportsbook. 

5. Ben Roethlisberger Over 25.5 Completions (+172)

As fantastic as the Pittsburgh ground attack has been, Big Ben continues to sling it. Roethlisberger is averaging 24.7 completions per game so this is a close. The Panthers can score with the best of them, so expect the Steelers to keep slinging it as the two squads go blow-for-blow. 

4. James Conner to Score First Touchdown (+550)

If the Steelers get the ball first, there's a good chance they march right down the field with Conner leading the way. If anyone on the Steeler's offense is going to score first, Conner has a fair chance to be that guy. 

3. James Conner To Score a Touchdown (+144)

If you're feeling a little squeamish betting on Conner to score first, not a problem. He's getting decent odds to score at any point and he's got six touchdowns over his past four games. The Steelers don't seem to be capping his workload so he should be involved all night.

2. Successful 2-Point Conversion (+310)

With field goal kickers continuing to struggle with the extra point for both of these teams, why not go for two? Both the Steelers and Panthers are averaging about 0.5 two-point conversions per game. In what will likely be a high-scoring affair, we may have several shots to hit this prop.

1. Christian McCaffery to Score Twice (+550)

With his best game of the season last week, McCaffery is clearly Cam Newton's favorite cog in the Carolina machine. Again, should be plenty of points tonight. Those are good odds for McCaffery to find the end zone twice.
