The New Orleans Saints head to the Steel City for a date with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Both teams have six losses on their resumé but somehow the Saints still have a fighting chance at making the postseason.
For those of you who enjoy betting on the games, let's check out some prop bets for you in Saints vs Steelers.
Chris Olave Prop Bet: Receiving Yards UNDER
This isn't a slight to Olave, as the rookie has been a superstar in the early goings of his career. So why hit the under here on Olave's receiving yards then?
Well, T.J. Watt is slated to return for the first time since Week 1 and he's going to make Andy Dalton's (or whoever is quarterbacking this offense) life a living hell. If Dalton struggles to get many passes off, it'll be hard for Olave to hit the over, which is why the under seems safe.
Chris Olave Prop Bet: Receptions UNDER
Similar to the last point, if Olave isn't going to hit the over in receiving yards, it's doubtful that he hits the over on his receptions. Dalton will certainly be looking Olave's way but with Watt and the Steelers defensive line likely looking to feast against a banged-up Saints o-line, I don't feel confident in Olave getting the ball much on Sunday.
Alvin Kamara Prop Bet: Rushing Yards OVER
If the Saints struggle to throw the ball, let's hope their running game comes out swinging. Kamara had a monster game two weeks ago but barely was utilized in the 27-13 loss to the Ravens. A big part of that was because the team fell behind early but the Steelers are nowhere near as talented as the Ravens are.
The Saints need to lean on Kamara and the rushing attack early and stick with it. That's why it feels safe to say that Kamara will hit the over here.
