- There are +300 odds on TJ Watt to record 13.5 sacks and Minkah Fitzpatrick to have 4.5 interceptions.
- TJ Watt had 15 sacks in the 2020 season.
- Minkah Fitzpatrick recorded 4 interceptions last season.
PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers finished the 2020 season as the number three ranked defense in terms of points allowed with just 312 points allowed on the season at 19.5 per game.
This defense was led by two main pieces on both the front seven and in the secondary. TJ Watt paved the way on the defensive line while Minkah Fitzpatrick lurked opposing receivers.
Being that the Steelers have arguably two of the best players at their position on their team, legal online sportsbooks have great prop bets that include both of these studs.
TJ Watt Over 13.5 Sacks/Minkah Fitzpatrick Over 4.5 Interceptions – Regular Season
- Yes +300
At first glance, these numbers might seem like a stretch for both of them to achieve, however, they are more than reasonable.
TJ Watt is coming off of his best season having led the league in sacks with 15. He has also gone over 13.5 sacks in two consecutive seasons with 2018 being just 0.5 sacks away.
There should be no worries on TJ Watt’s side of these NFL odds as he is at peak of his career and has shown no signs of slowing down.
As for Minkah Fitzpatrick, 4.5 could be considered fair for him despite him slightly staying Under last season at four interceptions. In his three seasons in the league, he has hit the Over mark once which came two seasons ago when he hit five.
Even though he barely missed it last season, he is on pace to go Over this season. The Steelers cleared up some depth in the defensive back room seeing departures from three players including Sean Davis, who was the primary backup to Fitzpatrick.
With this, Fitzpatrick should be on the field even more than he was last season and that could play a very beneficial role in him hitting the Over.
