Steelers vs Colts MNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Najee Harris - Rushing Yards: Over 60.5 (-110)

Fears of Jaylen Warren cutting into the volume of Najee Harris have proven unfounded, as Harris is coming off his two best games of the season. Harris has carried the ball a season-high 20 times in each of his last two games, posting his two highest rushing yards totals of the season as well (99 and 90). With Warren sidelined by a hamstring injury, Harris is positioned for another massive workload and should threaten 20 carries again, giving him more than enough opportunities to surpass 60 rushing yards in what should be a close, run-heavy game.

2. Matt Ryan - Passing Touchdowns: Under 1.5 (-162)

Matt Ryan has had a hard time finding the end zone this year, slinging just 10 touchdown passes in nine games this season. Only three of those games have yielded multiple TD passes, making him a great bet to go under here. The 37-year-old has managed just only two passing scores over his past three games combined and is being more careful with the football now that Jeff Saturday has given him his starting job back. With Ryan playing more conservatively and the Indianapolis offense revolving around Jonathan Taylor, the Colts' touchdowns are more likely to come on the ground than through the air.

3. Michael Pittman Jr. - Receiving Yards: Under 66.5 (-110)

Ryan's struggles under center have negatively affected Indy's top receiver, as Michael Pittman Jr. has gone under this receiving prop in six of his 10 games this year. He's been even less productive lately, falling short of 66.5 receiving yards in four of his last five games and six of his last eight. With Ryan averaging just 30 pass attempts and 217.5 passing yards in two games under Saturday, there's not a ton of passing volume to go around these days, especially with Taylor consuming so many touches. Mike Tomlin's defense limited Pittman to 3 catches for 38 yards during their last meeting in 2020, so expect another relatively modest yardage total here from the third-year wideout.
