The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to advance to 6-7 with a win against the Baltimore Ravens. Here are the best prop bets you can make for this AFC North matchup.
There’s no shortage of reasons to tune into the Steelers vs Ravens matchup this Sunday. Though Baltimore currently sits atop the AFC North at 8-4 (with a current tiebreaker over the Cincinnati Bengals), their playoff hopes are not yet secure — especially considering that QB Lamar Jackson will miss some time with a PCL injury.
On the other hand, the Steelers have been hot since a 2-6 start — winning 3 of their last 4 games. They are currently on a two-game win streak that includes back-to-back victories on the road. Now they will look to earn three wins in a row for the first time since early in the 2021 season.
That opportunity will come on their own turf at Acrisure Stadium this Sunday. With two games remaining against Baltimore, there’s still time to flip the script in the AFC North standings. As if you need any more reason to tune into this game on Sunday, here are the best prop bets you can make for Steelers vs Ravens this week:
Najee Harris Anytime TD Scorer Prop Bet (+110)
This would have been a pretty risky bet for most of the year. In his first 9 games of the 2022 season, Najee Harris punched just 1 rushing touchdown and 2 receiving touchdowns, per ESPN stats. However, the former first-round pick is certainly playing some of his best football since the bye week. Over the past 3 games, Harris has scored 3 rushing touchdowns.
Statistics show that the Steelers prefer to run the ball in the red zone. Najee can continue his hot streak with his fourth score in as many games. We like him to do so at +110 odds, via DraftKings Sportsbook.
Mark Andrews OVER 56.5 Receiving Yards Prop Bet (-135)
Mark Andrews hasn’t been quite as dominant in recent weeks as he was in the first half of the season. Still, the All-Pro tight end is in line to have another great season and he has earned 50+ yards in 8 of 11 games this season. While topping 56.5 yards is a massive challenge for many tight ends, it’s very attainable for a player like Andrews.
Considering that Pittsburgh’s linebackers have been among the worst in the NFL in terms of passer ratings allowed this year and coverage grades, there’s reason to believe that backup QB Tyler Huntley will look to his security blanket often. We like the OVER on Andrews’ receiving yards this Sunday.
Steelers Team Total Touchdowns OVER 1.5 Prop Bet (-180)
Baltimore’s scoring defense ranks 9th in the NFL — surrendering just 19.7 points per contest. However, we still believe it’s a good bet to believe Pittsburgh will score over 1.5 touchdowns this week. The Steelers have scored at least 16 first-half points in three straight games before letting off the gas in the final two quarters. We don’t believe this is a high-scoring game, but we do think 2 touchdowns are very attainable.
