Best Underdog Player Prop Picks for Saturday, January 6
It’s coming down to the wire for Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, and Houston this Saturday. Najee Harris, C.J. Stroud, and Devin Singletary are just a few playmakers from these borderline playoff squads that will hit their “overs” to secure their teams a playoff berth.
Check out the rest of our Underdog player prop picks for Saturday, January 6.
RB Najee Harris (PIT) OVER 58.5 RUSH YDS
Najee Harris has been coming alive as of late, with two straight games of 78 rush yards or more and 3 total scores. After two matchups against poor opponents against the run, look for the Steelers to carry this same momentum into Saturday’s game.
They will face a Ravens team who should be sitting many of their defensive starters as they have locked up the 1 seed in the AFC.
WR George Pickens (PIT) OVER 3.5 REC
After piecing together two of his best performances of the season with Mason Rudolph at quarterback, George Pickens should continue to demand targets against the Ravens.
Hitting the 6 target mark in each of the last four outings, look for Pickens to haul in four or more targets against a Ravens defense that has allowed 333 or more yards in each of their previous three games.
QB Tyler Huntley (BAL) OVER 174.5 PASS YDS
Huntley has shown flashes this season, scoring 2 touchdowns on just six completions on nine attempts. The 4th-year QB is more than capable of keeping this Ravens offense in the game, as the Steelers allow the 22nd-most pass yards this season.
The last three QBs to play Pittsburgh? Geno Smith with 290 yards and a score, Jake Browning with 335 yards and a score, and Gardner Minshew with 215 yards and 3 scores. Look for Huntley to put together a solid day through the air, regardless of the game script.
QB C.J. Stroud (HOU) OVER 1.5 PASS TD
C.J. Stroud’s Texans find themselves controlling their own destiny. This game against the Colts could be an early career-defining game for the eventual rookie of the year.
Stroud went for 384 yards and 2 scores against Indy earlier this season and with the Colts defense still struggling (bottom 6 in OPP PPG), look for this to be another breakout performance in a Texans’ victory.
RB Devin Singletary (HOU) OVER 12.5 REC YDS
A nice surprise this season, the Texans’ backfield leader has been a factor in the receiving game since their bye week. Singletary has put together four games of over 13 receiving yards in 10 outings.
Our bet is based on Devin coming alive and being trusted as a receiving back during Stroud’s best stretch of the season. In his incredible four-game stretch from Weeks 9-12, Singletary had 13 targets.
With Dame Pierce virtually out of the picture, Singletary should put together a solid game that will give Houston its playoff birth.
