KEY FACTS: The matchup pits youth versus experience in two key spots: Quarterback (Kenny Pickett vs. Matt Ryan) and coach (Jeff Saturday vs. Mike Tomlin). The Colts are 2-0 ATS under Saturday but caught points in both. This is Pickett’s first appearance on MNF; Ryan is 6-7.
TRENDING: The Steelers have lost four straight road games since their Week 1 overtime victory over Cincinnati. The Under has hit in 14 of Indy’s last 16 games.
NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher and PointsBet Senior Editor Teddy Greenstein offer their best MNF plays.
Steelers ML (+115) over Colts
"T.J. Watt makes Pittsburgh an entirely different proposition. He and Cam Heyward will feast on Indy's poor O-line."
Najee Harris Over 15.5 Receiving Yards (-125)
"The Colts have a strong run defense but are bottom 6 in defending RBs in the passing game."
BOTH PLAYERS TO SCORE A TD: Jonathan Taylor & Najee Harris (+260)
"These teams have combined for just 17 touchdown passes. That's 12 fewer than the Chiefs. The ground attack wins here."
1st Quarter Both Teams to Score: No (-240)
"I'm willing to spill the juice on two slow, inefficient offenses. FYI the Yes on this is +175."

Our three faves:
Steelers RB Najee Harris ⬆️ 60.5 Rushing Yards (-115): The Steelers’ bell cow has 189 rushing yards over his last two games and is set for another massive workload with Jaylen Warren (hamstring) sidelined.
Colts QB Matt Ryan ⬇️ 1.5 Passing TDs (-150): Matty Ice has been freezing cold in this department since his return as starter – 1 TD pass in two games.
Colts WR Michael Pittman ⬆️ 70.5 Receiving Yards (-120): Indy’s top wideout is averaging 64 receiving yards and eight targets since Ryan’s return. The Steelers’ secondary is soft (31st in passing yards allowed).

From noted capper Jon Eimer (@BucketJonBets on Twitter):
⚽ [$50] USA ML (+105): The U.S. team looked infinitely better against England than Wales; they played a full 90 minutes while maintaining defensive pressure. I’ve doubted this team a lot this year, but I think they can pull it off.
⚽ [$50] Under 2.5 Goals (-170): Iran need only a draw to advance so expect them to play 5 back and focus on locking everything down. Look for a 1-0 final in a cagey, scrappy match.
Michigan shredded Ohio State's defense Saturday, but PointsBet believes the Buckeyes have the third best chance of any team to win the national title. (AP Photo)
PointsBet has taken a bold, curious stance on Odds to win the NCAA Championship:
Ohio State +900
Ohio State is lower than USC and TCU?!.
BOTTOM LINE: Our traders believe Ohio State would get the fourth playoff slot if TCU (-140 ML) falls in the Big 12 title game to Kansas State or USC (-155 ML) can’t beat Utah in the Pac-12 champ game.
“We think there’s a strong shot one of them loses,” said PointsBet Trading Content Analyst Mike Korn. “And despite their loss to Michigan, we firmly believe the Buckeyes are an overall stronger team than TCU and USC.”
STEELERS & US MEN'S NAT'L TEAM TO WIN +350 ➡️ +390
