Najee Harris Over 80.5 rushing yards (-115)

"As the season has gone on, the Steelers have leaned on Harris in the rushing attack more and more. He didn't top 16 carries in any of his first four games, but he's had 22 carries or more in each of the last five games, topping 80 yards in four of those high-volume games. Not coincidentally (at least to Pittsburgh), the Steelers are 4-0-1 in those games. Clearly they want to run the ball and keep pressure off the passing game, and they're in the perfect spot to do that here against a Chargers defense that's seeing the most rush attempts in the league and giving up the highest yards per rush number in the league. Running backs in particular have 1,150 rushing yards in nine games against the Chargers, and since Harris gets basically all the rush volume for Pittsburgh, we should expect well over 100 yards if he just plays to an average performance against this unit."

Ben Roethlisberger Under 235.5 passing yards (-115)

"Big Ben averages about 248 passing yards per game, but this should be a matchup where the Steelers run the ball as much as possible, not only because the Chargers have the worst rush defense in the league but also because it's possible his timing won't be at its best after having to sit out of practice all week. Even if he does wind up throwing the ball more than expected, there's no guarantee his yardage total goes over either; the three times he's been under this total over his last five starts featured two 40-attempt days. The Chargers give up just under 220 passing yards per game to opposing QBs, and the gamescript favors the Steelers being around that number or lower on Sunday night."

Pat Freiermuth Anytime TD (+255) and First TD (+1700)

"The Chargers have allowed 12 passing touchdowns this year, but surprisingly, wide receivers were only on the receiving end of four of them. Running backs? Just one. That leaves seven -- seven! -- touchdowns for tight ends, the second-most in the league behind the Eagles. The Vikings figured out that weakness last week, tossing two short TDs to Tyler Conklin, which means four of the last five passing TDs the Chargers have surrendered have been to tight ends. Only three Steelers have multiple receiving TDs this year: Najee Harris with two, Diontae Johnson with three, and Pat Freiermuth with a team-high four. The rookie didn't reach the end zone with Mason Rudolph at QB last week, but he racked up three scores in the previous two games with Ben Roethlisberger. Friermuth reaching paydirt makes too much sense, and be sure to sprinkle a little on him scoring the first TD of the game."
