The Bears and Steelers are both coming into this game as defensive-minded teams. The implied point total for this game is 22.5 to 16.5, according to the oddsmakers. That is extremely low scoring, especially for 2021. However, a low-scoring game does not mean that there are no good player prop values for Chicago or Pittsburgh.

Justin Fields u185.5 Yards Passing
Justin Fields has only hit the over on this wager once, and that was against a pathetic Lions team. Now, he faces one of the better defenses in the league. With David Montgomery scheduled to be back, and the emergence of Herbert, I expect Chicago to go run-heavy into this matchup. On top of that, Matt Nagy is back on the sideline, which I consider a negative for the Bears’ play calling. Expect a lot of short passes for Fields and rather conservative play calling.
Even if Fields gets the opportunity to pass deep and intermediate routes, he has shown us nothing as of yet that proves he’s ready as an NFL starter. Combine this with a mentally checked-out Allen Robinson, and I just do not see a path to 190+ passing yards for Fields.

Najee Harris o81.5 Rushing Yards
Chicago boasts the 24th ranked rush DVOA in the league. The team simply has not been able to control the efficiency of opposing running backs. Elijah Mitchell had a massive day on the ground for the 49ers against the Bears, and I expect Najee Harris to do the same. Harris will get plenty of opportunities, averaging over 18 attempts a game. He should hit the over on that attempt mark in what I predict to be a positive game script for the Steelers. With 20-25 carries under his belt, Najee only needs to average around 4 yards per carry against a poor rush defense. All-in-all there seems to be a recipe for success when it comes to this player prop.
Diontae Johnson o24.5 Longest Reception
With a limited number of props available to us at the moment, going back to the longest reception prop seems like a solid idea. Johnson has hit the over on this prop in every game except for two. In one of those, he rushed for a long of 25 yards, showing that Johnson has been a big-play threat for the entire season. Over on the 24.5 longest reception prop simply seems like a value looking at the trends of the Steelers’ offense.
While I like Johnson’s over for total receiving yards in the game, this longest reception prop actually has a better trend history going into this game. In a low-scoring game, it is nice to grab a prop bet that only needs one completion for it to hit and is not reliant on game script and consistent passing from the Steelers’ offense.
