Steelers RB James Conner

The pick: Under 30.5 receiving yards (-115 @ Sportsbook.ag)

Conner totaled five receptions in each of the first three weeks, but he is never going to be the focal point of this passing game.

The Ravens have allowed the sixth-fewest receptions and second-fewest receiving yards to the position this season.

They also rank fourth-best in DVOA at defending running backs in the receiving game.

It’s just a really tough spot for Conner to hit his ceiling as a pass-catcher and that is where this line is set.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster

The pick: Under 6.0 receptions (+100 @ Sportsbook.ag)

The usage has undeniably been massive over the past two weeks, with JuJu totaling nine and 13 receptions against the Buccaneers and Chiefs, respectively.

But the Ravens should be a much tougher test this week, as they are fourth-best in the NFL at defending No. 2 wide receivers, per DVOA.

The Ravens have allowed the fifth-fewest receptions per game (10.3) to the position as a whole.

Not a bad spot to take a shot on a value bet at +100.
