The Pittsburgh Steelers have a lethal offense, and Las Vegas sees Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown as the odds on favorites to perform the best in the Wild Card weekend.

When it comes to quarterback and wide receiver duos, any NFL fan would be hard pressed to find a better pair than the one the Pittsburgh Steelers deploy on a weekly basis in Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. In fact, as the Steelers prepare to play the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Wild Card round of the postseason, Las Vegas sees the duo as the odds on favorites to dominate the weekend.

Per Bovada sports book, see the odds on this prop bet heading into Wild Card weekend:

Who will record the most Passing Yards Wild Card Weekend?

Ben Roethlisberger 3/2
Aaron Rodgers 9/2
Kirk Cousins 9/2
Russell Wilson 13/2
Brian Hoyer 7/1
AJ McCarron 15/2
Alex Smith 16/1
Teddy Bridgewater 20/1

Who will record the most Receiving Yards Wild Card Weekend?

Antonio Brown 5/4
DeAndre Hopkins 3/2
A.J. Green 7/1
DeSean Jackson 8/1
Doug Baldwin 8/1
Jeremy Maclin 9/1
Randall Cobb 12/1

The Pittsburgh Steelers certainly could benefit from the tandem having a huge weekend, but both would certainly sacrifice individual statistics if it gives the Steelers their first playoff victory since the 2010 trip to Super Bowl 45. Nonetheless, Las Vegas has a knack for knowing the trends in the sports world, and right now Roethlisberger and Brown are trending in the right direction -- up.
