It's only Week 2, but the Chicago Bears and Seattle Seahawks are both looking for a big win. You can too, as there are plenty of ways to fatten up your wallet on a Monday night.
Here are five interesting prop bets heading into the MNF showdown between Chicago and Seattle.
5. Both Teams to Score 10+ Points in First Quarter

Odds: Yes +6000 / No -20000
If you're looking for a shootout, this is the bet for you. The Seahawks have lost a ton of talent on the defensive side of the ball and the Bears, while underrated, still have a lot to prove. This game could get off to a quick start, which means points are going to be easy to come by.

Odds: Bears -0.5 [-106] / Seahawks +0.5 [-116]
Even though the Bears added some firepower to their offense, it's hard to see them keeping up with Seattle. The Seahawks have a star in Russell Wilson, a man who is no stranger to putting up points when it counts. Trubisky and the Bears have a bright future, but closing out strong against Seattle seems like a tough task.

Trubisky is the future of this franchise and is the man to open up the passing game for the Bears. He's getting more and more opportunities to throw as the team has taken the training wheels off. Last week, he completed 23 of 35 passes even though his team had a lead for the majority of the game. No matter what, it seems like Trubisky is going to have a chance to chuck this season.
2. Bears D/ST to Score First TD of Second Half

As we saw last week, the Bears have the playmakers to turn a defensive drive into points. That's the beauty of having a player like Khalil Mack on the field. This is definitely an intriguing prop bet considering the human turnstile that is the Seahawks' offensive line. If the Bears can pressure Wison and force him to make some mistakes, they could find points heading the other way.
1. Russell Wilson to Throw For 300+ Yards & Seahawks to Win

The Seattle Seahawks made a ton of changes last season that have caused many to believe their run of success is over, but the man who keeps them in games week after week is Russell Wilson. However, it's hard to imagine him bringing the Seahawks a win while tearing up the Bears secondary. Chicago has a good defense, and passing for yards without a ton of options is not a specialty of Wilson. As dynamic as he is, he only threw for 300 yards three times last season and only won two of those contests. Wilson is a star, but climbing this mountain seems difficult even for him.
