Value POPS in the Jets vs Steelers game this weekend. Take a look at Steelers QB Mitchell Trubisky’s passing line. The O/U is listed at 215.5 passing yards.
Can he hit this number?
Not a chance – he has yet to hit this mark in any game this season. Thru three games Trubisky has averaged 189.7 passing yards/game, ranking 27th in the NFL. What’s worse is his yards/pass attempt. He’s extremely inefficient, ranking DEAD LAST in the NFL with 5.5 yards/pass attempt. That means even if he’s given opportunities to throw the ball, he’s not completing a lot of them. And if he does, they are likely short yardage throws.The Steelers have lost the time of possession battle significantly in every game so far (averaging 12 minutes less time with the football/game than their opponent). That’s a full quarter of football! Look for Pittsburgh to pound the ground game with Najee Harris and try to control the clock better. Trubisky is going to be asked to be a game manager, not a play maker. The UNDER on this prop is 2-1 thus far and it will cash again easily against the Jets in a likely low-scoring affair.
Take Mitchell Trubisky UNDER 215.5 passing yards!
