All props taken Oct. 24th from DraftKings/FanDuel
Prop #1: The Henry Train Is Getting Derailed
Titans running back Derrick Henry is the reigning NFL rushing champion and he’s out front again so far with 588 yards through five games. He’s averaged 117.6 yards per game on the ground.
Logically, the over might appear to be the play of the day. However, Pittsburgh’s run defense in second-best in the NFL. The Steelers are allowing just 66.2 yards per game on the ground.
Derrick Henry had 174 rushing yards AFTER contact in Wk 6.
No RB had more than 118 rushing yards TOTAL.

Last week, they held Cleveland’s Kareem Hunt, a former NFL rushing champ, to 40 yards on 13 carries. In Week 1, they absolutely stuffed Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants. He gained six yards on 15 carries.
Steelers inside linebacker Devin Bush, among their best run stoppers, is out with a torn ACL, though. His 26 tackles are second on the team.
Pick: Henry, under 86.5 rushing yards (-112), 1 unit.
Prop #2: Big Ben Will Clock In
At 38, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger isn’t what he once was. However, he’s still very good.
The Steelers gameplan effectively to play to Big Ben’s strengths. Last week was the first time this season he didn’t throw for at least two touchdowns.
Some #Steelers updated “on pace for” stats
Ben Roethlisberger: 3,769 yds, 35 TDs, 3 INTs
James Conner: 240 rush att, 1,180 rush yds, 13 rush TDs, 266 rec yds
Chase Claypool: 54 rec, 1,072 yds, 13 rec TDs, 19 rush, 67 rush yds, 6 rush TDs
TJ Watt: 18 sacks
