Dan Israeli

The Detroit Lions will host the Chicago Bears to kick off the NFL's Thanksgiving Day slate. Detroit is a 4.5-point home underdog, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking for an alternative way to wager on this game, here are four of the best prop bets for the matchup between Detroit and Chicago.

1. Any Time Touchdown Scorer: Mitchell Trubisky (+490)

First off, it's important to note that this bet only hits if Mitchell Trubisky scores as a rusher or receiver. While he has mostly avoided using his legs this season, Trubiskly took off for a season-high seven rush attempts in Week 12, turning one into a two-yard score. It was an encouraging sign, as Trubisky rushed 68 times for 421 yards and three scores last season. Trubisky draws a good matchup against a Lions team that Trubisky scored a rushing touchdown against last season. David Montgomery has struggled in goal-to-go situations in recent weeks, opening the door for a Trubisky bootleg or sneak play on Thanksgiving Day.

2. Thanksgiving Day Games - Lowest Scoring Team: Detroit Lions (+170)

Last week's loss to the Washington Redskins was discouraging, as Detroit could only muster 16 points against one of the worst defenses in football. With Jeff Driskel's status up in the air, Detroit could really struggle to move the ball against Chicago's stout defense. The Bears' defense has really turned the corner recently, having surrendered an average of 14.7 points per game (PPG) over their last three games.

3. First Half Total: Under 19.5 (-120)

The Lions are Bears are playing their second straight Thanksgiving matinee, with Chicago prevailing, 23-16, in last year's matchup. In that game, the Bears led, 9-7, at halftime, and another low-scoring first half could be in store this time around. Chicago has scored three combined first-half points in its last two games, while Detroit only scored six first-half points against the Redskins last week.

4. Bo Scarbrough - Rushing Yards: Under 65.5 (-112)

Bo Scarbrough has been a beast since taking over the lead back role in Detroit, but he's running into one of the league's best defenses here. Chicago has allowed the seventh-fewest rushing yards per game to opposing RBs, and the Bears have the league's 12th-best rush defense, per Football Outsiders DVOA rankings. Chicago just held Saquon Barkley to 59 rushing yards in Week 12, and Scarbrough could struggle to reach 66 rushing yards against a top-tier Bears' defense.
