Najee Harris Over 17.5 Rush Attempts

The Pittsburgh Steelers can keep their playoff hopes alive with a win over the Cleveland Browns tonight, so I expect them to lean heavily on their first-round pick Najee Harris here.

I’m projecting Pittsburgh to have around 25 rush attempts on Monday Night Football, with Harris getting approximately 80% of them. The most likely outcome tonight is for Harris to get 19 rush attempts, and here is the breakdown of my projected odds for this market:

Rush Attempts Over Under
16.5 73.1% 26.9%
17.5 64.0% 36.0%
18.5 54.1% 45.9%
19.5 43.9% 56.1%
20.5 34.1% 65.9%

Given my projections, I would bet this up to -155.

Pick: Over 17.5 Rush Attempts (-135) at DraftKings

What Are NFL Player Prop Bets?

Bets on a player’s statistics or various outcomes can be considered a player prop. Betting on the over or under on a quarterback’s passing yards, over or under on a wide receiver’s number of receptions, and whether a running back will score a touchdown are all considered player props.
