Saturday's tripleheader continues at 4:30 p.m. ET, with the Pittsburgh Steelers traveling to Lucas Oil Stadium to play the Indianapolis Colts. The Steelers desperately need a win, as they have lost three out of their last four games.

Pittsburgh looked like they were on their way to making a playoff run, but that has been halted based on their play over the last few weeks. They hope Najee Harris, George Pickens, and the offense can create a spark after struggling against the Patriots.

I found two Steelers props and a Colts prop that fans should check out before kickoff tomorrow afternoon.

Best NFL Prop Bets for Steelers vs. Colts in Week 15

  • Michael Pittman Jr. OVER 6.5 receptions (-150)
  • Najee Harris OVER 53.5 rushing yards (-115)
  • George Pickens OVER 44.5 receiving yards (-115)

Michael Pittman Jr. OVER 6.5 receptions (-150)

Pittman Jr.’s reception prop continues to be a must-play weekly as Gardner Minshew II has a connection with the former USC wide receiver. The 26-year-old has gone OVER 6.5 receptions in six straight games and averages 12.2 targets per game.

Last week against the Bengals, Pittman Jr. had eight receptions (11 targets) for 95 yards. He will play a Pittsburgh defense that’s ranked third in DVOA-WR1 this season, per ftnfantasy.com. But the Steelers are allowing 9.2 receptions per game to the position. I don’t like to play props with odds higher than -150, but it’s tough to look past what Pittman is doing currently.

Najee Harris OVER 53.5 rushing yards (-115)

Harris is coming off a rough outing against the Patriots last week, where he had 29 yards on 12 carries. However, the good news for Harris is that he has a favorable matchup against the Colts’ defense on Saturday.

This season, Indianapolis is allowing 131.5 rushing yards per game, but that has gone up over the last three games to 137.7. The Steelers must establish the run on Saturday if they have any chances of snapping their losing streak. Harris has gone OVER 53.5 rushing yards in only six of 13 games, but he’s averaging 64.6 yards per game on the road this season.

George Pickens OVER 44.5 receiving yards (-115)

The second-year wide receiver had six targets in last week’s loss against the Pats but only had five receptions for 19 yards. Pickens will look to bounce back vs. Indianapolis on Sunday, which is ranked 29th in DVOA-WR2 and allows 45.5 receiving yards per game to the position.

Pickens has surprisingly gone OVER 44.5 receiving yards in seven of 13 games. But it doesn’t feel like it based on how sluggish the Steelers’ offense has been this season. It’s tough to trust this prop with Mitch Trubisky under center. However, we know Pickens only needs 2-3 catches to hit the OVER.
