MNF Player Props – PIT Steelers at CIN Bengals

Week 15 of the NFL season gets a lid on it when NFC North-leading Pittsburgh Steelers travel to face the Cincinnati Bengals. These two teams could not be heading in more different directions, as the Steelers are preparing for the playoffs and the Bengals are already looking ahead to next season.

Pittsburgh has been installed as a massive 14-point favorite, even on the road, with -1100 odds to win outright on the moneyline. Cincinnati, albeit very unlikely, has +700 odds to win outright.

MNF NFL Player Props - PIT Steelers at CIN Bengals

Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh Steelers) at Cincinnati Bengals

Monday, 8:15 pm EST | Watch: ESPN
Paul Brown Stadium – Cincinnati, OH

Prop Bets Watch:
Over 26.5 Passing Completions

Roethlisberger has exceeded the 26.5-mark in six of his last eight games, and in five of the last six. Last week’s shaky performance in Buffalo was the one misnomer on the latter, but the opposition did keep the ball away from Pittsburgh’s offense in that one; that shouldn’t be a problem tonight in Cincinnati.

The Steelers running game is absolute trash, so they’ll need to move the ball somehow – even against the Bengals. A lot of these other prop numbers for Big Ben aren’t quite as appealing, but this one will work out just fine.

Juju Smith-Schuster (Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals)

Monday, 8:15 pm EST | Watch: ESPN
Paul Brown Stadium – Cincinnati, OH

Prop Bets Watch:
Over 58.5 Receiving Yards (-120)
Over 5.5 Receptions (-150)

Yep, it’s a third Steelers’ player in this article – I got no time for the Bengals in this matchup.

While the odds aren’t necessarily that glorious from a profit perspective, it’s all we can do with what we’ve been given. Juju has recently been one of the most consistent Steelers’ pass catchers, considering WR Diontae Johnson and TE Eric Ebron have been plagued with the drops and WRs Chase Claypool and James Washington are taking snaps away from one another.

I already mentioned that Big Ben should have plenty of completions tonight, and Juju should be the one getting most of them. Over the last eight games, Smith-Schuster has at least six catches and seven targets in each of them.
