Vegas Play of the Day: Steelers at Giants

Fri, Aug 11, 2017 (12:40 p.m.)

We’re entering the fourth season of the annual South Point-lined Play of the Day competition, effective July 1.

Starting bankrolls have reset to $10,000, with the maximum bet being to win $1,000 and the minimum wager $300. Ray Brewer won back-to-back titles in the 2015-2016 and 2016-17 seasons, after Taylor Bern prevailed in 2014-2015.

Pittsburgh Steelers plus-4 at New York Giants: $440 to win $400: Rookie Joshua Dobbs will start and see a majority of the reps for the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight, and that’s a good thing. Reports out of Steelers camp indicate Dobbs has the potential to be their quarterback of the future.

And when Dobbs isn’t in the game, longtime backup Landry Jones will run the offense against the Giants’ reserves, players who have no chance of making the roster.

Handicapping the preseason involves picking the team with the best quarterback depth. That’s Pittsburgh. The Steelers also have proven commodities at wide receiver in JuJu Smith-Schuster and Eli Rogers, two players who will be contributors during the season.

Current Standings: Granger (4-4, $11,657), Keefer (5-2-1, $11,095), Grimala (2-1, $10,595), Brewer (3-5, $8,340)
