Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins (rib) is expected to play in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks. 

Bengals head coach Zac Taylor revealed that Higgins will be a game-time decision, but it has been reported that he will suit up this week.

Higgins missed the team’s Week 5 game against the Arizona Cardinals with the injury.

Best Cincinnati Bengals prop bet for Week 6 vs. Seahawks

Ja’Marr Chase anytime touchdown scorer

Since Higgins is still banged up, we might as well side with Ja’Marr Chase in the prop market this week after he scored three times in Week 5. 

Seattle has allowed the 14th most yards per attempt through the air this season, much worse than the team’s No. 1 rank in terms of yards per carry allowed in 2023. 

Chase saw an insane 19 targets last week, and if Higgins is limited I’d expect him to easily push double-digit looks in Week 6.
