12-1. 54. 57. FOX. Sunday, December 18th. 3-10. Eagles -9. 1 PM EST

There isn’t much need for buildup or a hype machine. It’s time to get down to business. The Philadelphia Eagles travel to Soldier Field, the sight of both fond memories (the double-doink) and bad ones (The Fog Bowl). Despite the frequency with which we’ve discussed the Dallas Cowboys, they aren’t the opponent this week. The Chicago Bears own that distinction.

FanDuel favors the Birds by nine points. Philly’s moneyline is currently set at -400 compared to +315 for Chicago. The OVER/UNDER is set at 48.5 points.

We expect another Birds victory, which would give them 13 on the season. We agree with the line, though we believe Philadelphia will win by a wider margin. Here are three prop bets that you may also see as being interesting.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Passing Yards Total: OVER 226.5 (-114)

At the risk of sounding disrespectful, here’s the long and short on Jalen Hurts and how we believe he’ll perform versus the Bears. Ahead of the Eagles’ games versus the Tennessee Titans, it felt like there was a chance that Philly’s QB1 might struggle versus what was then seen as a game Titans defense. He went on to torch them.

We’ve seen nothing as of late that demonstrates that he should have any issues with Chicago. Expect another MVP-type performance in this one.

Philadelphia Eagles WR A.J. Brown Alternate Receiving Yards Total: Over 50 (-270)

The Jalen Hurts/A.J. Brown chemistry grows weekly. DeVonta Smith has had some nice moments as well.

While we expect Dallas Goedert to return and play well, nothing we’ve seen while watching 13 Bears games leads us to believe Chicago will be able to keep Brown from doing anything he wants to do. Exceeding 50 yards receiving will be easy for Number 11, and he might even score in this one.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders Rushing Yards Total: OVER 65.5 (-114)

The Eagles made a gross error in their lone loss of the season by waiting too long to get their ground game going. Fortunately, this coaching staff learns from its mistakes as we haven’t seen them do anything remotely similar since then.

Expect Miles Sanders to get some early touches and a few more looks late to help his team put this one away. Exceeding 66 rushing yards should feel like another day at the office.
