Bengals vs. Steelers Prop Bets

Pick: Jake Browning Over 0.5 INTs (-140) at DraftKings

While Browning has been winning games for the Bengals lately, we also must acknowledge that he’s thrown an interception in three of his four starts this season. Now, in Week 16, he faces a Steelers defense that averages about an interception per game. They didn’t get one in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts, but they’ve had at least one in eight of their last ten games. 

The total in this one is at just 37 points, so we could see plenty of the ground game, but Browning, who’s had two starts with at least 37 attempts, played the Steelers back in Week 12. There, he had 227 passing yards, a touchdown, and an interception. 

Look for him to throw another one here against a takeaway-heavy Steelers defense.

Pick: Mason Rudolph Over 0.5 Interceptions (-160) at DraftKings

Kenny Pickett is injured, Mitchell Trubisky isn’t producing, and now, the Steelers turn the keys over to Mason Rudolph. In his career, Rudolph has completed 61.5% of his passes for 2,369 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. He filled in for Trubisky last week and attempted just three passes. 

Like Browning, Rudolph is taking on a Bengals defense that averages more than one interception per game. They’ve had three in their last two games and 15 on the season. 

The Steelers could game-manage this one, and Rudolph could attempt less than 20 passes, but Rudolph has always been a bit turnover-worthy, with 17 turnover-worthy plays on 387 attempts in his career. 

Bet on an interception here.

Pick: Tanner Hudson Over 2.5 Receptions (-166) at Caesars 

It’s looking like a game-time call for wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, who’s dealing with a separated shoulder, and as a result, especially if he doesn’t play, look for Hudson to haul in some grabs. 

This season, the Steelers allow five receptions for 47 yards to tight ends per game. Tight ends have also scored five touchdowns against them in their last four games. 

Looking at Week 15, playing mostly from behind, Hudson had the most receiving snaps of all Bengals tight ends, catching five balls for 49 yards. 

The Steelers defense is a bit squishy against tight ends and Hudson is the focal point of the tight end group.

Look for three receptions or more here.
