If you like shootouts and betting overs, you might want to pick your nose before betting on Thursday night’s division match between the Browns and Steelers. NFL Week 3 slats.
Here are three of our favorite plays Bet MGM Prior to this prime time contest:
Steelers vs. Browns predictions, player prop picks
Jacoby Brissett threw 0.5 or more interceptions (+105)
This is a bit of a tricky bet, as Brissett is the typical game manager who doesn’t flip the ball. But I love getting the plus money for him making a mistake against this opportunistic Steelers defense.
Pittsburgh picked 13 passes a year ago and already tied for the league lead with five interceptions this year. Bengals quarterback Joe He has his four interceptions from Burrow in Week 1, and one interception from Patriots passer Mack Jones in Week 2. In the first year of his lucrative contract extension, he was a key part of it as he re-established himself as one of the best safety in the league.

Can he hold off Brissett on Thursday? , signed a contract. Cleveland loses to JetsHe has just a few days to prepare for this difficult Steelers defense while also dealing with a nagging ankle injury he picked up late last week. All indicators point to at least one of this one costly mistake of his.
Nagy Harris Less than 53.5 yards (-110)
Harris was one of the NFL’s most productive rushers in his rookie season. never
In two games, Harris tallied 72 total yards at 2.9 yards per carry and has yet to break a run over 11 yards. His 15-hit-carry, 49-yard effort against the Patriots last week was a high water mark for the former Alabama star. He’s also been battling a lingering leg injury since early in his training camp. Win over the Bengals.
This Browns defense allowed the fourth-least rushing yards (73.5) by Week 2. Defensively he loses some firepower along his line, but passes are more likely to hamper his rush, and may even have less chances for the likes of Harris. A chance for quarterback Mitch Trubisky. This line is too expensive for a talented but handicapped rusher.
Nick Chubb’s longest rush is over 19.5 yards (-125)
The only player worth betting on either side of this matchup is Chubb, at least because of his positive stats.
Betting on the NFL?
The Browns star ranked second in the league in rushing yards (228) and ninth in yards per carry (5.8), and completed at least three 20-yard rushes. Mostly he’s in the NFL. In fact, in both games this season and in each of his last six contests going back to last season, he recorded 20 or more yards on at least one run.
Having achieved this mark in 21 of his last 30 games, it’s baffling why the oddsmakers underestimated Chubb’s longest rush so low. Even when he lost to the Steelers last year, he only managed 58 yards overall, but he still smashed a 32-yard run. He should be able to open up another long run of his points against the Pittsburgh defense that collapsed last week against the Patriots. With only days to prepare for Cleveland’s frenetic return, I’m skeptical of the Steelers’ ability to keep him completely bottled up for 60 minutes.
