- WR Ja’Marr Chase has (-115) on sportsbooks to go OVER 61.5 yards on Sunday
- WR Tee Higgins’ absence should open up more opportunities for Ja’Marr Chase to hit this wager.
CINCINNATI – Tee Higgins is doubtful for today’s match against the vaunted Pittsburgh Steelers defense. While this injury might bring the overall efficiency of the Cincinnati Bengals offense down this week, Ja’Marr Chase should find himself in a spot to to pick up some additional targets from QB Joe Burrow, with Higgins being out.
WR Ja’Marr Chase has (-115) odds to go OVER 61.5 yards on Sunday. He has surpassed this prop total half of the time this season but Tee Higgins was active for both of those games
The Game Plan
Joe Burrow and the Bengals will have to figure out the way to make up the 15 targets Tee Higgins received through the first two games of the season. It is reasonable to assume that WR Tyler Boyd may receive some extra looks his way in this matchup but Ja’Marr Chase is the receiver that stands to benefit the most from this injury, with his 16.3 ADOT.
To add the icing to the cake, the spread of this game is set with the Steelers at -7, inclining sports bettors to believe that the Bengals will be throwing from behind most of the game. Additional passing volume from Burrow only boasts the chances of Ja’Marr Chase going OVER his 61.5 yard prop total set by sportsbooks for Sunday’s game.
Kickoff is scheduled for Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST and will be broadcast on the CBS Network.
