The Baltimore Ravens host the Pittsburgh Steelers this Saturday in the regular season finale for both teams. Having already locked up the AFC No. 1 seed and division crown, the Ravens are set to rest several key starters, while the Steelers are in a must-win scenario for their postseason hopes.
Here are some of the top player prop bets to eye in this AFC North rivalry matchup.

Gus Edwards anytime touchdown scorer (+230)
The Ravens’ offense will likely not find themselves in scoring position as frequently without Lamar Jackson in the lineup on Sunday. However, should they reach the red area at least once or twice, banking on Edwards to score again is a strong proposition.
The “Gus Bus” has revived another late-season touchdown streak by finding the end zone in each of the past three games. That’s brought his total on the season to a whopping 13 rushing touchdowns. Edwards has only scored twice against the Steelers in his career but has had some productive outings on the ground.
In what is a hard-to-predict game in terms of who will produce for the Ravens offensively, getting plus value on Edwards’ chances to score a touchdown is a good bet.
Justin Tucker over 1.5 field goals made (+110)
Tucker could be a beneficiary of a potentially less-potent Ravens’ offense, as it may afford him more field goal kicking opportunities. That’s usually true in this rivalry regardless of personnel, as the matchups tend to be more low-scoring and gritty.
Tucker only attempted one field goal against the Steelers earlier this season but previously had a streak of four consecutive matchups with two or more field goal makes. He’s averaging 2.5 field goals against the Steelers for his career and has made 96.6% of his attempts.
This isn’t a luxurious bet but a worthwhile one given this context, especially considering taking the over has plus value.
George Pickens over 47.5 receiving yards (-115)
Pickens’ receiving projection is awfully low for this game given his performances of the past two weeks. The second-year wideout has come alive since Mason Rudolph took over under center and emerged as his go-to target. Pickens has recorded 195 and 131 receiving yards in back-to-back games with 11 combined catches on 15 targets.
The Ravens will certainly make an effort to key in on Pickens as the focal point of the Steelers’ passing attack. However, they’ll be missing some starters in the secondary and Pickens would only need 48 receiving yards to reach the over on this projection.
For what it’s worth, Pickens has had some success against the Ravens thus far. In two of three meetings versus Baltimore, Pickens has 78+ receiving yards including a six-catch, 130-yard outing earlier this season.
