Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb runs the ball vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Browns travel to Atlanta to take on the Falcons this Sunday in what should be a game dominated by running backs. This matchup has a lot of potential to be a high-scoring game as the Falcons have put up the ninth most points per game. 

Meanwhile, the Browns offense looks to be banging on all cylinders with the steady play of quarterback Jacoby Brissett. 

This week four matchup could end up coming down to who makes the first mistake, and for Browns and Falcons alike, all eyes will be on the quarterback play. Here are some prop bets that we think stand a bit taller than the rest.

Amari Cooper Any Time Touchdown (+140)

While it's undoubtedly lofty that a wide receiver catches a touchdown in three straight weeks, look no further than Amari Cooper to make this magic happen.

 The Falcons secondary has given up the third most passing touchdowns in the league this year and doesn't seem to be getting much better. It's clear that there is a connection between Brissett and Cooper inside the red zone, and while the Browns may primarily look to run the ball with Hunt and Chubb, that Amari Cooper quick slant route has become a hot route at the line of scrimmage. 

The Falcons rank 27th in redzone defense, so if the Browns are faced with a third down and goal, it's pretty clear who they are looking to target. 

Kyle Pitts Under 55.5 Receiving Yards (-118)

This one hurts to watch. Kyle Pitts is an undeniable talent but hasn't been used to his abilities in Atlanta.

 The former top-five pick has surprisingly been used in blocking assignments on obvious passing downs, surprising fans as many thought this would be his breakout year.

 While it seems like Arthur Smith is committed to "winning games" and couldn't care less about fantasy or individual stat performances, there looks to have been a push to get Pitts more involved moving forward. 

No one truly knows what that means in the run-first offense, as getting Pitts more involved may mean some additional targets early. So far, Pitts is only averaging 41.7 yards per game on receptions. His 13.9 yards per catch average is 41st in the league, but he doesn't look to be a key target in this offense yet. 

Nick Chubb Over 86.5 Rushing Yards (-115)

Who's stopping Nick Chubb?

In his fifth year, Chubb has somehow improved, which is unheard of for a runningback that plays with his level of tenacity and aggressiveness. 

Chubb ranks first in rushing yards this season with a staggering 159 YAC. He's breaking tackles like a madman and isn't slowing down anytime soon. The Falcons are above average regarding rushing yards allowed this season, but they have yet to deal with a runningback of Nick Chubb's caliber. 

This Browns offensive line projects to move the Falcons front seven well past the sticks, so it should be nothing but green grass for Nick Chubb. This is a homecoming game for Chubb as he grew up an hour outside of Atlanta and has many family and friends in attendance.

 Not to mention the diehard UGA fans that will likely be wrapped in nostalgia.
