Week 3 of the NFL season is set to begin as the Cleveland Browns are set to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in a Thursday night matchup. As exciting as the matchup will be, even more so the case is when you have a little skin in the game.
Here are three must-play props for tonight’s matchup:
Must-play props for Browns vs. Steelers
Browns/Steelers is a historic and heated rivalry of the AFC’s top teams in the first of two Monday night games and now you can join the action with DraftKings, FanDuel, or one of the many other online sportsbooks.
Buffalo looks to keep it rolling after setting the tone of the season in the opening matchup of Week 1 while the Titans are looking to redeem themselves after being upset at home by the New York Giants.
Nick Chubb | Over Total Rushing Yards
With Deshaun Watson obviously missing tonight’s game, the Cleveland Browns are expected to once again lean heavily on the run game, namely, star running back Nick Chubb. This season, Chubb has racked up 228 rushing yards (5.8 AVG) in merely two games.
The Pittsburgh Steelers’ run defense has not looked as secure as they surely hoped so far this season, especially last week against the New England Patriots. Their test only becomes more difficult against the Browns’ strong tandem of backs.
Nick Chubb is the favorite for rushing attempts of course so expect him to get every chance to put forth yet another impressive performance.
Take the over on rushing yards for Chubb.
Myles Jack | Over Total Tackles (Solo & Assists)
Since signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers this past offseason, Myles Jack has been a tackling machine for the Black and Gold. With 23 total tackles in the first two weeks, Jack has set the expectation that he will be among the leaders in tackles come the end of the season (currently tied second).
Against the Cleveland Brown’s rushing offense, the seven-year veteran will have every opportunity add to his total.
Bet the over tonight.
Myles Garrett | To Record a Sack
Myles Garrett has two sacks on the young season and the Pittsburgh Steelers have a bottom-five offensive line in the NFL. On top of this, Garrett, for lack of a better term, hates the Steelers and always brings his A-Game when they face-off.
In eight career games against the Steelers, Garrett has earned six sacks and will undoubtedly be looking to add to that number tonight. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that Myles Garrett will come ready and motivated tonight to sack the opposition’s signal caller.
