Best Steelers vs. Ravens anytime touchdown scorer
- Jaylen Warren (+190)
- George Pickens (+250)
- Charlie Kolar (+390)
Jaylen Warren (+190)
Warren has played a higher percentage of snaps than Najee Harris in the backfield and is fresh off a game in which he scored a touchdown. Harris may still be the bellcow from a rushing perspective, but Warren is getting more than his fair share since going to Mason Rudolph at starting quarterback, rushing the ball eight and 13 times.
Further, he is a threat in the passing game. He has 10 targets across the two Rudolph starts.
Given that the Ravens are sitting key players on both sides of the ball, the Steelers offense may be in for a solid afternoon, and Warren's versatility makes him a great bet at this number to find the end zone.
George Pickens (+250)
It's apparent that Pickens is Rudolph's favorite target, going over 130 yards in both games on 15 targets and 11 catches, hauling in two touchdown grabs two weeks ago against the Bengals.
The Steelers offense has played much better of late, scoring 30 or more points, but I still believe that this team is laser-focused on its high-usage players and a vanilla game script. Given Rudolph's overall limitations, I believe he's going to be fixated on Pickens throughout the game, meaning he can outperform this price.
Charlie Kolar (+390)
We can't just bet on the Steelers to find the end zone!
With the Ravens sitting several key players set to sit out this one, including Lamar Jackson and Odell Beckham Jr, could there be some value on Baltimore skill position players further down the board?
I'll take a stab at the rookie Kolar, who has been playing north of 25% of snaps since Mark Andrews went down, but in a blowout against the Dolphins last week played nearly 50% and scored his first career touchdown.
Given that this game has little incentive for the Ravens to play its key guys, starting tight end Isaiah Likely may not play the full game, opening up targets for Kolar, who has proven to be a weapon down the stretch of the season.
Tyler Huntley is more than capable at quarterback and Kolar should be way shorter than this number given the likely volume he'll see on Sunday.
