2020 Steelers Player Prop Bets
Going into the 2020 regular season, NFL sportsbooks had plenty of player props available for multiple players on the Steelers rosters. Although those season-long player props have been pulled, those looking to bet on the Steelers can still bet on the single-game player props.
Ben Roethlisberger has looked great in his bounce-back season and has put NFL sportsbooks on watch. He went into the 2020 campaign with his season total for passing yards set at 3850.50 being that he threw for over 5,000 yards in 2018 but has not yet hit the over mark here. As for his touchdown total, he has already hit the Over mark with just about one month left in the season.
Juju Smith-Schuster went into the 2020 season with high expectations from NFL sportsbooks but due to the emergence of multiple receivers, he has had a hard time with his totals. His receiving yard total was set at 1099.5 yards, but Smith-Schuster has been overshadowed but his teammates which have his receiving yards not even close to the Over mark. As for this touchdown total, it was set at 6.5 and he actually has a chance to close out on the over with there still being plenty of season left.
Conner was expected to have himself a nice year as the Steelers top running back as online sportsbooks had his season totals set at 825.5 rushing yards and 6.5 touchdowns. However, due to injuries that he has dealt with this season as well as the emergence of the passing game, he has remained with the under mark for his rushing yards thus far and is close to hitting the over for his touchdowns.
Dionte Johnson had his season total for receiving yards set at a modest 775.5 after his solid rookie season. He has been having a solid 2020 campaign thus far but has yet to hit the over mark although he is in striking distance. With there being plenty of time left in the season, it would not be surprising if he hit it sooner rather than later.

Knowing how this year is going for the Steelers, fans are very excited about things moving forwards and bettors are as well. This team has made a major improvement and it can be seen the collective energy they have given. This energy also is effecting bettors as well. Placing a bet on whether the Steelers will have a total of four interceptions in a game collectively is a team prop bet that can be placed on online sportsbooks.
Taking player prop bets is one of the ways online sportsbooks have been helping bettors win a lot of cash. Player prop bets are when you can place bets on a player during the game.
