TNF Week 14 Prop Bets | Steelers vs Vikings Props for Justin Jefferson, Kirk Cousins, & More

The Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5-1) take on the Minnesota Vikings (5-7) this Thursday in a must-win game for both teams if they want to stay in playoff contention.

The Steelers will need to take advantage of Minnesota’s injury woes, as running back Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is a game-time decision and wide receiver Adam Thielen (ankle) has been ruled out. Look for Justin Jefferson to benefit as the clear focal point of the Vikings’ attack and Kirk Cousins‘ top weapon.

Let’s dive in to find the best Steelers vs Vikings prop bets for this primetime showdown.

Please note that all NFL Week 14 odds and lines are current as of 5:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, December 9.

Steelers vs Vikings Prop Bets: NFL Week 14 Prop Betting Picks

Justin Jefferson: OVER 93.5 Receiving Yards (-115) at Caesars

Jefferson is absolutely rolling right now, catching 32-of-44 targets for 577 receiving yards and three touchdowns over his last four games. Jefferson has topped 100 receiving yards in three of those contests after doing so twice in his first eight games of the year.

Now that Thielen is out, Jefferson should receive even more attention from Cousins. He matched his season-high in targets last week with 14 and could be poised to top that number here, so it’s hard to imagine him falling below this total with so much volume headed his way.

Jefferson is a superstar who is on fire. Keep riding the streak in this terrific spot with our NFL bet of the day.

Najee Harris: UNDER 72.5 Rushing Yards (-115) at Caesars

Harris has hit the rookie wall, rushing for just 133 yards on 41 carries over his last three games combined. He’s topped this number just once in his last five games and four times overall in 12 games this season.

You also have to consider that Harris does a lot of his damage through the air, as he’s routinely targeted around five times per game. Depending on the matchup and game script, he has more value as a short-yardage weapon for Ben Roethlisberger.

I expect the Steelers to play from behind here as road underdogs based on our NFL gameday odds, which could result in fewer rush attempts and more check-down targets for Harris.

Kirk Cousins: OVER 256.5 Passing Yards (-115) at Caesars

Cousins is averaging 279.4 passing yards per game, which is well over 20 yards above this number. I understand that Thielen is out and it’s a short week, but we need to capitalize whenever there’s such a disparity between the player’s prop and his production.

If Cook sits, look for the Vikings to go even more pass-heavy here. In Alexander Mattison‘s three starts at running back this season, Cousins has averaged 37.3 pass attempts per game.

If we project 35 attempts for Cousins at his season average of 7.5 yards per attempt, that comes out to 262.5 yards. You also have to like how this correlates with the Jefferson prop.

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
