Week 16 of the 2022 NFL season continues with an AFC showdown on Saturday Night Football between the Las Vegas Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers. With both teams still in the playoff hunt and gaining momentum after slow starts, this should be an exciting game.

Here are three of the best prop bets for the Raiders vs Steelers matchup, courtesy of NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Raiders vs Steelers Prop Bets Tonight

1. Najee Harris Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+115)

Much like the Steelers, this season has been a tale of two halves for their star running back. After getting off to a sluggish start and finding the end zone just three times in his first nine games, Harris has racked up 5 touchdowns over his last five games, scoring in four of those contests. The increased scoring is a byproduct of his rising volume, which includes an average of 18.5 touches over his last six games. Look for Mike Tomlin to call his number often on what's expected to be a sub-freezing night in Pittsburgh, resulting in another TD celebration for the second-year pro against a Raiders defense that's given up 15 rushing touchdowns in 14 games this year (13th-most in NFL).

2. Josh Jacobs Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+125)

Anything Harris can do, Jacobs can do better. Jacobs has been a beast all season long for Las Vegas, and the team has only become more reliant on him as the year has progressed. The two-time Pro Bowler has topped 20 carries in six straight games, scoring 5 touchdowns during that span. He's now up to 11 TDs on the season, all of which have come in his last 11 games. As mentioned, the weather will likely cause both sides to go run-heavy, helping Jacobs add to his growing touchdown total.

3. Davante Adams Receiving Yards: Over 69.5 (-114)

While it's true that the weather conditions won't be conducive to the passing game, this is still a very attainable number for Adams. The star wideout has gone over this number 10 times in 14 games this season, including six of his last seven. He's averaging 91.1 receiving yards per game and gets to face a porous Pittsburgh secondary that's allowing the ninth-most passing yards per game. Even with the returns of Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow eating into some of Adams' target share, he should still see enough volume to hit the over here.
