The NBA chose the wrong night to have the In-Season Tournament semifinals as they are forced to go up against Mitch Trubisky and Bailey Zappe in the ratings department. In all seriousness, tonight’s matchup between the Steelers (-6) and the Patriots is not likely to be fireworks with a total set at just 30.5. Ezekiel Elliott will get the bulk of the carries for the Pats with Rhamondre Stevenson sidelined, and all signs indicate that Steelers running back Najee Harris will play after missing practice this week. Let’s dive into my favorite NFL player prop bet for Patriots vs Steelers, but make sure you also read our full Patriots vs Steelers predictions.

Allen Robinson over 1.5 receptions (+115)

Line available at Bet365 sportsbook at time of publishing,

Trubisky is back under center and Allen Robinson has quite a bit of history with the quarterback, dating back to their time in Chicago. It’s NOT a coincidence that Robinson caught all 3 of his passes in the second half of Pittsburgh’s loss to Arizona last week when Trubisky came in the game. Now, this game against New England is going to be ugly, but I still feel there is an edge on Robinson at plus-money odds. It’s well known that Trubisky can’t push the ball downfield, but A-Rob is a wide receiver with a big catch radius that can help Trubisky’s inaccuracy issues and has an ADOT over 6.9 yards and yards per target of 5.4.
