The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to take on the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football. Here are the best bets you can make for this primetime matchup.

There’s a lot riding on this pivotal AFC matchup and all eyes will be on the Steelers and Dolphins as they face each other on Sunday Night Football. Miami was off to a red-hot start before QB Tua Tagovailoa suffered a concussion in Week 4. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh recently snapped their four-game losing streak with an upset win over the Buccaneers.

The Dolphins are favored by a touchdown in this contest prior to kickoff, but we expect a hard-fought contest throughout. Both teams will have their starting quarterbacks returning from concussions and will look to give their offenses a spark in primetime. Here are the best bets you can make for Steelers vs Dolphins in Week 7:

Steelers Best Bets Week 7

Steelers to cover the 7-point spread (-105)

With the way the offense has performed all season, it’s hard to take the Pittsburgh Steelers at the moneyline this week. However, we do like them covering the 7-point spread, via DraftKings Sportsbook. Apart from a blowout loss against the Bills a few weeks back, Pittsburgh’s defense has done well enough to keep them in pretty much every contest until late in the game. This could be another tight struggle against Miami this week that we believe could be decided by a field goal.

Kenny Pickett OVER 223.5 passing yards (-115)

Even with an uncreative offensive coordinator hamstringing him, it seems like it will just be a matter of time before Kenny Pickett gets it. Playing catchup against the Bills in Week 5, Pickett passed for 327 yards on 52 attempts, via Pro Football Reference. Last week, he was not even on pace for a 200-yard game prior to his concussion. In Week 7, however, the rookie QB gets a favorable matchup against a struggling secondary. We think Pickett will pass the ball enough to go above this passing prop. We like him to do so at -115 odds.

Pat Freiermuth OVER 35.5 receiving yards (-115)

Pat Freiermuth missed the Buccaneers game with a concussion that he suffered against the Bills. Prior to that, however, Freiermuth had earned 13 combined targets against the Browns and Jets for 126 yards. Not counting the game he left early with the concussion, Freiermuth is averaging just over 55 yards per contest. Assuming he can stay on the field, we like him to surpass 35.5 yards this week against the Dolphins.

Steelers can’t underestimate QB Tua Tagovailoa and Dolphins offense. light. Trending
