Week 7 of this NFL season features a ton of lopsided matchups, including a Sunday Night Football showdown between the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-4 straight up, 2-3-1 against the spread) and Miami Dolphins (3-3 SU, 3-3 ATS). With Miami welcoming the return of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa after overcoming a concussion, this contest has the chance to get put away early, which makes betting on the game’s outcome a bit boring.
So, why not try your luck at wagering on player props and anytime touchdown scorer bets for this all-AFC tilt on primetime instead?
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Miami Dolphins Odds
Pittsburgh upset the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a 10-point underdog last week, with odds as long as +375 at PointsBet, though it wasn’t enough to convince oddsmakers in Week 7.
The visiting Steelers – priced between +250 and +270 on the moneyline as of Friday morning – must overcome yet another large spread, this time being seven points against the Dolphins (between -320 and -350).

Player Props, TD Scorer Bets for SNF Week 7
Jaylen Waddle Over 58.5 Receiving Yards (-115, DraftKings), Anytime TD Scorer (+150, Caesars)
Few players are psyched for Tagovailoa’s return more than Waddle, who topped 58.5 receiving yards in all three games that the quarterback played from start to finish. Miami’s No. 2 wideout also scored in two of those contests (three scores total).
It feels like yesterday that the Steelers had one of the league’s most suffocating passing defenses. This season, however, Pittsburgh has given up the most receiving yards (210.5 per game) and passing touchdowns (nine total) to wide receivers.
Against a soft Steelers secondary that has allowed 11 different players to hit 59-plus yards receiving this season, Waddle can play second fiddle to teammate Tyreek Hill and still rack up enough yards to go Over on this prop.

Najee Harris Anytime TD (+155, Caesars)
Some defenses are great at holding opposing offenses to field goals instead of touchdowns once in the red zone, while other defenses can already anticipate a touchdown celebration.
The Dolphins fit the latter group, as they surrender a touchdown on 70% of red zone trips – the fifth-highest rate in the NFL. All three of Harris’ scores (one rushing, two receiving) this season came from inside the opponent’s 20-yard line.
Our confidence on this prop bet to cash is fairly high, and to get it at a plus-money price makes it even juicier.
Raheem Mostert Over 63.5 Rushing Yards (-115, DraftKings & BetMGM)
It was clear after Week 1 that Mostert was Miami’s preferred back. The 30-year-old has secured a large majority of the backfield work, taking on 15-plus carries in each of his past three outings. He exceeded 63.5 yards rushing in two of them.
This is Tagovailoa’s first game back after getting body slammed and knocked out cold in Cincinnati, so it’s possible – and wise – that head coach Mike McDaniel goes run-heavy to protect his quarterback.
The Dolphins can beat the 2-4 Pittsburgh by relying on the run game while sprinkling in a few nice plays from Tagovailoa. Mostert should see a hefty workload and cruise past the Over.
