Cardinals vs Steelers Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

I like Pittsburgh in this game, but the line is a touch high since it rose from Steelers -3 to -5.5, so I'm playing Najee Harris as a proxy for a Steelers win.

Like it or not, Harris is still the lead back in this offense, not Jaylen Warren. Harris has had more carries than Warren in every single game this season, including last week. Arizona allows the second-most fantasy points to RBs, with the opposing lead back averaging 21 carries for 97 yards.

Harris has averaged just under 10 carries for 38 rushing yards in the Steelers' four losses, going under this line in all but one. However, in the seven wins, he's averaged almost 15 carries for 64 yards. He's over this mark in five of those seven wins, with the two unders by a combined 12 yards against elite the Baltimore and Cleveland defenses. I'm treating this as a sneaky way to play a juiced Pittsburgh moneyline.

Pick: Najee Harris Over 45.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
