Week 12 Wednesday Football Picks: Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Prop Bets
This Wednesday sees us watching the Ravens travelling to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers in a game which has been moved multiple times since it's original date on Thanksgiving. Let's get stuck into this bonus football with some prop bets.
Robert Griffin III Rushing Yards - Over 29.5 @ -110
There's one reason why RG3 is Lamar Jackson's backup, its because he can slot in and run Baltimore's RPO heavy playbook without needing to change their gameplan dramatically. He's clearly not as good as Lamar, who is missing this game after a positive Covid-19 test, but he will have opportunities to use his feet, so we're taking the over here.
Ben Roethlisberger Passing Touchdowns - Over 1.5 @ -172
I can the Steelers starting slow today but Big Ben should get 2 or more passing touchdowns against the Ravens, even though they're a good defence. James Connor isn't a top level RB but with him missing it does mean that the Steelers will likely lean on their incredible receiver corp more.
Chase Claypool Receiving Yards - Over 49.5 @ -110
Chase Claypool has been a revelation this season and the Canadian rookie already looks like a stud. Since his breakout game in Week 5 he's gone under 50 yards just twice and in the past 4 games he's had 40 targets. He's been given the ball and that is the key here, I expect him to get the opportunity to have another good day.

Week 12 is finally upon us. As is tradition we have 3 Thanksgiving games, the highlight of which is the third and final game, which sees the Ravens facing the unbeaten Steelers. On Sunday Night Football we see football's oldest rivalry as the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers meet and on Monday we see the Seahawks at the Eagles. The biggest game of the week for neutrals is probably the Chiefs at Buccaneers, which will pit Tom Brady against Patrick Mahomes.
