The game between the Steelers and Bengals doesn’t look to be particular interesting, especially now that Joe Burrow aka ‘Stogie Joe’ is out for the season. However what can make a shitty game better? That’s right Monday Night Football prop bets! As far as the side and the total I picked CIN +14 on the podcast, but I don’t feel amazing about it and total wise I’d lean over as well 40.5 is too low.

Monday Night Football Prop Bets
1. First TD Props
- Vance McDonald (+2400) – Vance McDonald hasn’t had a touchdown all season which means one thing…he’s due!
2. Ben Roethlisberger O 26.5 Completions
The Steelers have made one thing clear this season, Roethlisberger is going to throw a ton of easy catchable balls. They’ve really struggled to run the ball this season and making things even harder will be the late scratch of James Conner. Big Ben will continue to check it down and complete a ton of balls to his talented WR core like he has all season.
3. Diontae Johnson O 5.5 Receptions
They just can’t make this total high enough, Johnson is getting a ton of targets in spite of his recent drop issues. If you look at his game log, he’s consistently going over this total, catching more than five balls in five out of his last six games. Even in their last game against the Bills were he was briefly put in the dog house after two bad drops he still managed four catches.
4. Giovani Bernard U 29.5 Rushing Yards
The Bengals RB rotation has gotten interesting, but I really think Bernard is the odd man out because of his fumbling issues. In addition to a diminished workload, Pittsburgh’s rushing defense is no joke ranked second in the NFL.
Again they call these #DegensOnly prop bets for a reason, they’re super long shots. The Steelers love throwing the ball period and I could see Vance involved in their goal line packages. Would it be crazy he catch two balls for TDs? So crazy it just might work! It’s 61:1 for a reason but I love the angle here.
