The easiest game left on the Philadelphia Eagles’ regular season schedule is set to take place today when they head to the Windy City to face the Chicago Bears.
The Eagles are set as 8.5-point favorites in the NFC showdown, the second longest spread of the week.
But, what about Bears vs. Eagles prop bets? That’s what I’m hear to talk about in this article.
With the Bears’ bad defense, this game should serve as a good opportunity for the Eagles offensive players to pad their stats.
Let’s dive into my favorite player props for this game.
Best NFL Prop Bets for Philadelphia Eagles vs. Chicago Bears
- Jalen Hurts OVER 226.5 passing yards (-115)
- DeVonta Smith OVER 4.5 receptions (-125)
- David Montgomery OVER 58.5 rushing yards (-120)
Jalen Hurts OVER 226.5 passing yards
Jalen Hurts has averaged 242.8 passing yards per game this season, so I see no reason why he can’t surpass 226 yards against the Bears today. The Eagles rank fourth in the NFL in yards per completion, averaging 11.2 yards per completed pass. That means that Hurts may not even need to throw the ball a lot this afternoon to go over this total.
If the Bears offense can score points and keep the game somewhat competitive, Hurts will be forced to throw the ball more and should soar over 226 passing yards.
DeVonta Smith OVER 4.5 Receptions
DeVonta Smith has seen at least 8 targets in five straight games, while surpassing 4.5 receptions in four of those five matchups. He’s an integral part of the Eagles offense, and if the Bears are able to shut down A.J. Brown, Smith will see plenty of work.
The Bears allow opponents to complete 66.57% of passing attempts against them, which ranks 23rd in the NFL, so there will be plenty of receptions to go around this afternoon.
David Montgomery OVER 58.5 rushing yards
We can’t just blindly bet on all Eagles players, so if there’s a Bears player you want to target, it’s running back David Montgomery. If there is a weak spot on Philadelphia, it’s the run defense. The Eagles rank 24th in opponent yards per carry, allowing 4.7 yards per rush.
Now, they have to face a Bears team that leads the league in both rushing attempts per game and yards per carry. If there’s one aspect of Chicago’s team that can succeed today, it would be its rushing offense. Montgomery has gone over this total in three straight games.
