Let’s spice up Patriots-Steelers with a BONUS BET on us 😃! If you’re trying to figure out how to use it, we have a suggestion.

Here at the Hustle, we share noteworthy betting action every single edition. So we turned it into a TNF parlay that is now being offered on the betting app homepage up until kickoff.

The “Hustle’s People Parlay” will feature the game’s three most popular player prop bets by tickets from your fellow bettors. Instead of trusting one person’s opinion, we’re rolling with the opinion of thousands 🧠.

For tonight’s clash, the most popular player props by tickets are Ezekiel Elliott anytime touchdown, Elliott 35+ rushing yards and Diontae Johnson 20+ receiving yards. The “Hustle’s People Parlay” currently pays out +300.

We’re also offering BOOSTED ODDS on FIRST TOUCHDOWN SCORER during tonight’s Power Hour, starting at 6 p.m. ET.

MAKING HISTORY 📜

Fanatics Sportsbook Presented by PointsBet creative

We have not one, but two totals that are aiming to make betting history today 😮. Which way are bettors leaning on each of them?

Pacers vs. Bucks at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas [5 p.m. ET]
TOTAL: Opened 254.5, now 257
HISTORY: This would be the highest NBA total for any game going back to at least the 1995 season. Pacers at Hawks from Nov. 21 is the current record holder after it closed at 252.5. That high-scoring affair went over with 8:23 left in the fourth, as the Pacers won 157-152 🎆.
ACTION: 62.1% tickets on OVER, 50.5% of handle on OVER

Patriots at Steelers [8 p.m. ET]
TOTAL: Opened 34, now 30
HISTORY: If Patriots-Steelers closes at 30, it would be the NFL’s lowest total in nearly 40 years 🤯. Patriots at Bengals back on Dec. 12, 1993 also closed at 30, with the Patriots prevailing 7-2 in that barnburner.
ACTION: 73.1% tickets on UNDER, 88.6% of handle on UNDER

EXPERT PICKS

Ryan Leaf and Ariel Epstein have four best bets for TNF, which may be more than the total points scored in this contest.

THE SIGNAL-CALLER

Patriots at Steelers: Under 30 Points (-110) [8:15 p.m. ET]
“I’m not convinced that the Patriots score at all tonight. The Steelers haven’t even reached 17 points in each of their last three games.”
Steelers QB Mitchell Trubisky Over 180.5 Passing Yards (-115)
“Trubisky is a capable thrower and he’s familiar with the offense. I’m not sure about his success in the red zone, but he has the weapons to move the ball down the field.”

THE PROP QUEEN

Patriots RB Ezekiel Elliott Over 16.5 Rush Attempts (-115)
“Lead backs have gotten 17.3 carries per game against the Steelers, the eighth-most rush attempts against any NFL team. I’m not sure Bill Belichick trusts any QB on his roster to make throws, so expect the Patriots to pound the rock.”
Patriots WR JuJu Smith-Schuster Over 15.5 Receiving Yards (+100)
“Revenge game alert! This is JuJu’s first time going up against the Steelers after he spent his first five years there. The Steelers have allowed the 10th-most receiving yards per game to wideouts.”
OFFENSIVE OFFENSE

MARQUEE MATCHUP 📺

Fanatics Sportsbook Presented by PointsBet data and insights

OPENING KICKOFF: 8:15 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: The Patriots are 1-3 this season when they’ve allowed 10 or fewer points, while the rest of the NFL is 53-0 when doing so 🤣. Even with the Patriots’ scoring woes, it’s actually the Steelers that have cashed the most unders (10-2) in the NFL this season.

MAKING MOVES: Pittsburgh opened as 6.5-point chalk at home, though that line has come down to Steelers -5.5. The total has seen the biggest move so far, dropping from 34 all the way down to 30.

TOP PROPS: With Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) out, bettors have been eyeing 👀 Ezekiel Elliott. Elliott anytime touchdown leads the way in tickets and handle among all player props for TNF. In fact, Elliott to find the end zone has racked up more than twice as much handle as any other prop.

Another player prop that is getting slammed is the under for Najee Harris rushing yards. His rushing yards prop currently sits at 60.5, and the under has captured 66.0% of the tickets and 98.8% of the handle.

SIN CITY SLAMS
