4 Best Prop Bets for Chiefs vs Bears NFL Week 16 Sunday Night Football Game
The Kansas City Chiefs head to the Windy City to face the Chicago Bears in the Week 16 edition of "Sunday Night Football". The Chiefs are 7-point road favorites in this one, according to the latest odds from FanDuel Sportsbook.
If you're looking for alternative ways to wager, here are four of the best prop bets for Sunday night's matchup between the Chiefs and Bears.
1. Travis Kelce - Any Time Touchdown Scorer (+125)
Travis Kelce remains a critical part of the Chiefs offense, and he ranks No. 6 in the league in red zone targets this season. The star tight end also leads the Chiefs in overall targets and ranks as the No. 2 TE in our Week 16 fantasy rankings. Kelce even had a rushing touchdown last week against the Broncos, which shows the Chiefs are willing to go out of their way to find him in the red zone.
2. Patrick Mahomes: Under 10.5 rushing yards (-124)
The Bears defense has been very effective at limiting quarterbacks from scrambling downfield this season. Over 15 games, quarterbacks are averaging about 10.2 rushing yards against them. Mahomes has not run the ball many times this year (2.8 attempts per game), and if the game gets out of hand, he won't be putting himself at risk with the playoffs approaching.
3. Mitchell Trubisky: Over 35.5 passing attempts (-126)
While this total seems like a lot for the embattled Bears quarterback, Trubisky has exceeded 35.5 attempts in four of the last five games. The Bears have struggled to run the ball this season, ranking No. 29 in Football Outsiders' offensive rushing DVOA. With the Bears offense likely to be behind and getting more possessions against the Chiefs, Trubisky will need to be throwing the ball frequently.
4. Tarik Cohen: Over 44.5 rushing and receiving yards (+102)
The Bears' struggling running game does catch something of a break on Sunday night, as the Chiefs are No. 30 in rush defense DVOA. There's no doubt that Cohen and the Bears have had a miserable year, but the matchup is quite appealing. Cohen had 57 receiving yards on 10 targets last week and also had 28 yards on 8 carries. 44.5 yards is not a high bar to surmount, and with the Bears likely playing from behind, Cohen should be in for a ton of touches in both the run game and the passing game.
