NFL MNF: Mims picks Bengals vs Steelers and considers prop bets with Joe Mixon and Mason Rudolph

These are the key numbers for the game tonight between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Both teams are 0-3. The Bengals have two close losses between being destroyed by the Niners. The Steelers have lost their last two games by a total of 6 points. The Steelers are the favorite at -3.5 and the over/under total is 44.5. The money line on FanDuel is Steelers -190 and Bengals +164. The Steelers are the home team.

The prop bets that stand out on FanDuel are Joe Mixon rushing and receiving yardage. The number is set at 81.5 with a price of -112. This is a great price and worth a look. Mason Rudolph completions are set at 22.5. His last game he completed 14 out of 27. Steelers should have a balanced attack against the Bengals so he should have similar numbers.

I have a lean toward the Steelers to control this game. I will stay with a money line play. Bengals do not play well in prime time. My lean was not good on the TNF game when I took the Packers on the money line. So far, I am 3-3 in my selections on NFL Monday and Thursday. I have a play on the game that is part of a Sunday/Monday Teaser. Saints plus 9.5 is in the books. Just need both the Steelers and Bengals to score over 38. Whatever side you pick, always exercise money management.
