Bengals vs Steelers odds, line: Monday Night Football picks, predictions

Bengals vs Steelers (-3.5, 45)

Bengals vs Steelers face off for a Monday Night Football affair and I lean for the Steelers to cover and also the under. Both just light leans for me and won’t be officially betting either. Their are a few props I like for tonight. As I have mentioned in the past, I prefer props more times than not on Monday Night Football, and I don’t see any value in the line here.

Props (Bengals vs Steelers)

  • Joe Mixon (under 18.5 receiving yards)(+105) – Mixon is only getting 49% of the offensive snaps, sharing time mainly with Giovanni Bernard. Mixon is the workhorse and will pound the rock and Gio is the third down back/receiving back. I like this bet because with a lead, Mixon won’t be a receiving threat out of the backfield, and if down, Bernard will get more snaps. Gio surprisingly has gotten 49% of the snaps as well, but due note that the Bengals have trailing in a lot of their games, but this is still a good sign and both players know their role.

 

  • Tyler Eifert (over 2.5 receptions)(+100)- Last Sunday, Eifert had one catch (on one target) for 18 yards. This was against a very tough Bills defense (that held Tom Brady to 18/39 180 yards yesterday). Eifert had 5 targets in each game before that, and is still in 50% of the offensive snaps, so over 20.5 is a great value play. I project Eifert to go 3 for 29 tonight on 5 targets.

 

Other props (unofficial)-

 

  • Mason Rudolph (under 0.5 INTs)(+190)– Most people are going to see Rudolph’s name as a back-up QB, and expect him to throw an INT tonight. I expect a conservative game plan with going up against a zone-based defense under new coordinator Lou Anarumo. If this is the case, Mason will take a lot of easy check down routes and if they can establish a run game and get a lead, there will be no opportunity for an INT. The “yes” has odds of -220. There is a slight chance Kirkpatrick and this defense could run more man-to-man on Juju but nothing has indicated this will be the case.

 

  • First score (FG or safety)(+110)- Both teams have struggled in the red zone and this is due to both teams not establishing a strong run game, especially the Steelers. Bullock and Boswell are both decent kicker and this would be a good play for tonight consider Rudolph & Dalton have looked less than stellar.

 

  • Tyler Eifert- First TD score, Bengals (+800) – Eifert had a TD against the 49ers and Dalton loves Eifert in the redzone. This is a longshot prop but there is some value here.
