Seahawks at Steelers – Best Sunday Night Football Prop Bets
Chief Sports Writer
The Sunday night NFL Week 6 slate gets an exciting matchup to cap it off as the Seattle Seahawks travel across the country to face the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. Of course, the biggest news of the week is Seahawks QB Russell Wilson missing the game, and now Geno Smith will be taking his place. Nothing like making your first start in forever on the national stage, right?
In this article, I will identify the three most profitable Sunday Night Football Prop Bets to make us all a profit before heading into Monday. Plus, I’ll provide which NFL betting sites are offering the best odds.
Top Value Sunday Night Football Prop Bets
Geno Smith: Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (+155, Caesars Sportsbook)
It’s more about the odds here for me, rather than the outcome of the game. I do think the 42-point total is a bit dramatic in the lower direction, and that could lead to another bet down the road. If you’re going to move the ball against the Steelers, it’s going to happen through the air. In five games against Pittsburgh this season, four different quarterbacks have thrown for at least 245 yards and two touchdowns in a game.
Najee Harris: Over 71.5 Rushing Yards (-120, Caesars Sportsbook)
Four different running backs have already exceeded 70 rushing yards against the Seahawks this season. In addition, the Colts ran for 90 yards in the season opener by using a two-back committee approach. That is certainly not how Pittsburgh operates, as the rookie Harris is in a clear bell-cow position. Of the 90 carries from Steelers’ RBs this season, Harris all but 12 of them. Look for him to get another huge workload and cruise past this mark.
Tyler Lockett: Over 57.5 Receiving Yards (-115, Caesars Sportsbook)
As I mentioned earlier, the Steelers’ secondary is going through a rough time early on this season. The best way to beat this team is over the top, and the Seahawks have just the guy to do it. Lockett has cooled off a bit in recent weeks, not exceeding 60 receiving yards in each of his last three games, and that’s after reaching the 100-yard mark in his first two games. Look for Lockett to hit on a deep ball or two in this matchup and blow right past the mark.
