The resurgent Pittsburgh Steelers, winners of four straight games, will travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns in a Week 11 "Thursday Night Football" matchup. The 3-6 Browns are 3-point home favorites over the 5-4 Steelers, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking for an alternative way to wager on this game, here are four of the best props for this Week 11 AFC North showdown.

4. Mason Rudolph - Longest Completion: Over 37.5 (-118)

Mason Rudolph has done an admirable job filling in for Ben Roethlisberger, and he's generated quite a few explosive plays. He's had a completion of at least 40 yards in five of his seven games this season. Cleveland, meanwhile, has allowed a completion of at least 50 yards in two of its last three games.

3. JuJu Smith-Schuster - Receiving Yards: Under 53.5 (-118)

While Rudolph has been serviceable, JuJu Smith-Schuster hasn't been able to produce much with him at the helm. JuJu has been held below 54 receiving yards in three of his last four games, averaging 42.5 during that span. Additionally, the last time JuJu faced Cleveland (Week 8, 2018), he was held to 33 receiving yards on six targets and four receptions.

2. Baker Mayfield - Pass Completions: Over 21.5 (+100)

Their 1-2 record might not reflect it, but Baker Mayfield has quietly begun to turn his season around over Cleveland's last three games. Mayfield was completing 56.6 percent of his passes (18.7 per contest), while tossing five touchdowns to 11 interceptions before the last three game. Since then, though, Mayfield is completing 65.7 percent of his passes (averaging 24.3 per game) while throwing four TDs and just one INT across his last three games. Those last three games have also come against defenses that all rank in the top-12 in Football Outsiders' pass defense DVOA rankings. He'll have another tough test Thursday, as Pittsburgh ranks fourth in that metric, but his recent play suggests he has a shot to reach 22 completions tonight.

1. Nick Chubb - Receiving Yards: Under 19.5 (-118)

Nick Chubb is one of the most dynamic backs in football, but he does most of his damage on the ground. He's tallied less than 20 receiving yards in six of Cleveland's nine games thus far, and his role in the passing game is likely to shrink as Kareem Hunt continues to integrate himself into the offense. In Hunt's debut last week, Chubb saw four targets (generating five receiving yards) while Hunt was targeted nine times. Hunt played 54 percent of the snaps, and if he continues to see the field this often, it could be hard for Chubb to crack 20 receiving yards in this one.
