The Rams are firmly in the mix for a postseason berth through the first quarter of the season, and the team will look to keep building on offense with a win at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
You can check our full game betting preview here, but this is going to focus on player props, particularly Cooper Kupp, who looks to be at 100% after missing the first four games of the season. With the Rams banged up at running back, I expect the Rams passing offense to do the heavy liftin gon Sunday.

Best Prop bets for Rams vs. Steelers in Week 7
- Matthew Stafford OVER 35.5 passing attempts
- Cooper Kupp OVER 91.5 receiving yards
- Tutu Atwell OVER 2.5 receptions
Matthew Stafford OVER 35.5 passing attempts
The Rams are down the likes of Kyren Williams and Ronnie Rivers at running back, so the pass-happy ball club is probably going to be even more deliberate in putting the ball in Stafford's hands going against a middling Steelers secondary.
Stafford has gone over this total in four of six games this season, and I believe this game script will lend itself to a pass-first attack after the Rams attack the Cardinals porous defense on the ground, the weak point of the unit.
In what should be a close game, give me this over with Stafford making plays all afternoon.
Cooper Kupp OVER 91.5 receiving yards
Kupp has shown no signs of losing a step despite season ending surgery in 2022 and missing the first four games in 2023.
Kupp has 15 catches for 266 yards in two games against the Eagles and the Cardinals. While the Steelers have a lofty reputation, the team has been poor defending the pass this season, 19th in success rate per dropback.
With the Rams likely going to the air often in this one, Kupp is going to get a lion's share of the targets and it's a matter of time until he breaks the 100-yard barrier.
Tutu Atwell OVER 2.5 receptions
Atwell's receptions numbers have dwindled with Kupp back on the field, only three combined catches over the last two weeks, but he got five targets two weeks ago against the Eagles and only one against the Cardinals in a run-first attack.
With the Rams likely taking to the air more often in this one, I'm going to opt to play back on his over receptions. Atwell had at least eight targets in the first four games of the season, and while I know that the Rams didn't have Kupp then, this game script should dictate more receptions.
