Thursday Night Football Player Props: Steelers vs. Vikings

NFL Thursday Night Player Props: Steelers vs. Vikings

Monday Night Football player props ended up going 3-1 with a +145 cash on anytime touchdown! NFL Week 14 kicks off with a non-conference game between the Pittsburgh Steelers visiting the Minnesota Vikings. Both teams are in a must-win situation if they want any chance of sneaking into the playoffs. Below are my Thursday Night Football player props between the Steelers and the Vikings.

Thursday Night Football NFL Player Props: Steelers vs Vikings

Najee Harris Over 70.5 Rushing Yards

This game is going to be a battle of the running game because both rush defenses rank amongst the bottom in the entire league. In fact, the Vikings rank #31 in yards per rush attempted allowed and #29 in rushing yards allowed per game. I believe this is a game where the Steelers will establish the run against the porous rushing defense. Despite Najee Harris going over 71 rushing yards just twice over the last five weeks, I believe we are getting a discounted number here on Harris rush yards.

Justin Jefferson Longest Reception Over 27.5 Yards

I have bet this prop bet every single week and it has cashed every week just about. In fact, Justin Jefferson has a long reception of over 28 yards in 9 out of the 12 weeks so far this season. Additionally, the Steelers have allowed long receptions of 28 yards or more in every game this season except for one which was against the Cleveland Browns. I will continue to back this every week. Give me the Over!

Pat Freiermuth Over 3.5 Receptions

Pat Freiermuth has become a big part of the passing game of the Steelers over the last couple of months. In fact, Freiermuth has four or more receptions in six out of the last seven games for the Steelers. Furthermore, Freiermuth is averaging close to seven targets per contest in that span. The Vikings’ defense allows six targets per game to the tight end position, and I expect the receptions and targets to continue for Freiermuth against the Vikings in the Thursday Night Football between the Steelers and Vikings.
