If you’re like me, you fall victim to the Sunday scaries every week. The crushing reality of work yet-to-be-done starts to sink in sometime in the afternoon, and it’ll ruin the rest of the day if you let it. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to — just change the channel to ESPN! It’s much easier to procrastinate with Sunday Night Football occupying your attention.

PointsBet understands the struggle. That’s why they’re offering a $20 risk-free bet for Sunday night’s action. You can take advantage of the promotion on any market with a minimum of -200 odds. Unlike whatever work you’ve put off all weekend, you won’t have to worry about negative consequences with this offer.

It’s easy to overthink football player props. I know — I’ve done it a few times this season. But even if you think (or know) that you’re smart enough to find a contrarian edge, you shouldn’t forget to buy safe, logical plays. That’s what we have on Sunday Night Football this week.

Why is this play so safe? Well, the Chargers field a classic run-funnel defense. They have allowed the most total rushing yards to opposing running backs (1,150) despite having already had their bye. That means they surrender a league-high 127.8 rushing yards per game to running backs. Yikes.

The stats support this play, too. Los Angeles’ defensive line ranks fourth-worst in adjusted line yards (4.83). Harris ranks second in rushing attempts (176) and rushing attempts per game (19.6), trailing only Derrick Henry in both metrics. The Steelers are feeding their rookie rusher, and he should hit the over on this line tonight.

BONUS Prop: Najee Harris 125+ Rushing Yards | +300 (.25u) at PointsBet
