Week 9 of the season is about to kick off with the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Tennessee Titans. This week, the San Francisco 49ers, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Denver Broncos are on bye.
Below, we have three early prop bets you should consider making before we get into TNF and the weekend slate.
Let’s check them out.
After having 65 or fewer receiving yards in five of six games this season, Titans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins looked reborn in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons with rookie Will Levis under center.
Hopkins had just five targets, but Levis had just 28 attempts. Hopkins caught four of those targets for 128 yards and three scores.
Levis completed 64.3% of his passes for 234 yards. So, Hopkins had four of Levis’ 18 completions.
This week, Levis and Hopkins will face a Steelers defense that’s allowed 245.4 passing yards per game. They also allowed 271 in their last outing.
Across from Hopkins will be veteran cornerback Patrick Peterson. Peterson has allowed 20 receptions on 34 receptions for 306 yards (15.3 yards per catch) and four touchdowns.
Hopkins should see plenty of action here once again.
Getting some +110 value, this is a bet worth taking a chance on. This season, Harris has had 46 rushing yards or more in three games and had one with 43. Last week, he didn’t have a productive game, rushing for 13 yards on seven attempts. He has 14 attempts or more in all but two games this season—Week 1 and 8.
He has 84 attempts this season but averages a mere 3.7 yards per carry. To top 45.5 rushing yards, he’ll need 13 carries, something he consistently does.
He’ll also take on a Titans defense that’s not only allowed over 107 rushing yards per game this season but over 157 over the past three weeks.

Here we go—kicker props.
The line for Miami Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders, as these two teams compete in Germany, is 1.5 field goals.
This season, the Chiefs have allowed just 1.1 field goals per game. That average has dropped to 0.7 per game over the last three weeks. To be fair, on the road, that average balloons to 1.8, but this is an international game, so you have to wonder if the 1.8 balloons are because of the home fans or from them being tired.
Also, the Dolphins have a league-worst 0.9 field goals made per game.
These two teams are going to be in a slugfest where touchdowns will win the game. The Dolphins score 33.9 points per game compared to the Chiefs’ 23.4. The Chiefs scored just nine last week with an ill Patrick Mahomes, but they’ll be able to score against this beatable Dolphins secondary.
Sanders might get one in here, but touchdowns will need to happen for the winner to be crowned in Germany.
