For the third week in a row, it is looking like the Pittsburgh Steelers will be participating in the Game of the Week. The undefeated 6-0, Steelers will be traveling to Baltimore to take on their divisional rival, the 5-1 Baltimore Ravens. The QB battle is as good as it gets, with Big Ben Roethlisberger [O/U 255.5 Passing Yards] taking on Lamar Jackson [O/U 210.5 Passing Yards] to see who is supreme in the AFC North. Both teams enter this showdown after narrowly winning their Week 7 matchup, with Steelers defeating the Titans 27-24 and the Ravens defeating the Eagles 30-28. Although we are in Week 8, this game can have deep playoff implications months from now.
The home-team Ravens are led by 2019 NFL MVP Lamar Jackson who has some great weapons to work with. Most notably, Marquise “Hollywood” Brown [O/U 52.5 Receiving Yards], Hollywood has been great this season hitting the over in receptions on his player prop betting line in each of the last 3 games. Joining Hollywood in this receiving core is TE Mark Andrews [O/U 40.5 Receiving Yards], who had a slow game vs. the Eagles last week, hitting the under on in receiving yards on player prop betting line finishing with 21 yards. Prior to this game, Andrews hit the over on his player prop betting line in each of the 2 games beforehand. In a Lamar Jackson offense, anyone is capable of having a BIG day.
The ground-attack in this Steelers offense is led by Pro Bowl RB James Conner [O/U 61.5 Rushing Yards.] In this offense where Big Ben is dropping off, James Conner is picking it up. In the 4 games so far this season, where Conner has received 16 or more carries he has hit the over in rushing yards on his player prop betting line in all contests. The Steelers receiving core is led by fan-favorite, JuJu Smith-Schuster [O/U 4.5 Receptions.] JuJu had himself a GAME last week against the Titans, finishing with 9 receptions while hitting the over on his player prop betting line. This Steelers is HIGH-POWERED, they’re 6-0 heading into this divisional matchup and prior to last week, they have scored offensive touchdowns on their opening drive in 23 straight games!
