The Pittsburgh Steelers could be entering a slugfest against the Indianapolis Colts. Here are the three best prop bets you can make for this Week 12 matchup.
If you are a fan of offensive shootouts on primetime football, I’ve got bad news for you: this probably isn’t going to be the most enjoyable game you have witnessed. Both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts have tough defenses to go with their bottom-five offenses — almost certainly making this contest a slugfest.
Still, there is plenty of incentive to place few wagers on this game. We did the research so that you don’t have to. Here are the three best prop bets you can make for Steelers vs Colts in Week 12 on Monday Night Football:
Pat Freirmuth OVER 43.5 Receiving Yards Prop Bet (-135)
Pat Freiermuth is not only the leading receiver on the Pittsburgh Steelers this year, but there’s reason to believe his production could spike in the coming weeks. After dealing with a concussion that forced him to miss roughly a game and a half in Weeks 5 and 6, Pittsburgh’s TE1 has come on strong. He has now earned 8.75 targets per game over his last four contest (with as many as 12 in a game and no fewer than 7).
The Steelers have also been using Freiermuth down the seem and in the middle of the field more often in recent weeks. The second-year tight end already has 4 games of 75+ receiving yards despite missing time this year. At -135 odds, via DraftKings Sportsbook, we are taking the over on his receiving yards prop bet this week.
Kenny Pickett UNDER 210.5 Passing Yards Prop Bet (-115)
Kenny Pickett has been really high-variance when it comes to his passing yardage totals this year. In games that he has started, he has as many as few as 191 yards and as many as 327. Even with the under already set pretty low this week, we are still taking it.
Pickett is coming off a 265 yards performance against the Bengals, but some of this game late in the game when Pittsburgh was down two scores. Meanwhile, a tough Colts defense just held Jalen Hurts and the Eagles to 173 passing yards in Week 11. We are taking the under this week for Pickett’s passing yards.
Pat Freiermuth Anytime TD Scorer Pro Bet (+255)
This is a player prop bet we have taken several times this year. Unfortunately, we have only cashed in once from it, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take it anymore. Pat Freiermuth has been Kenny Pickett’s go-to target, and these two narrowly missed on a few more connections in the endzone this year.
For a tight end who is a beast with the ball in the air and had 7 touchdowns as a rookie, we think his second of the season could come against the Colts this week. We like Freiermuth as any anytime TD scorer at +255 odds.
