Best Prop Bets:

  • Jordan Howard to Score 2+ Touchdowns  (+1000)- You may not want to bank on Howard scoring twice in one game for only the second time this season, but the odds are in his favor. The Lions are in the bottom half in the league against the run and the Bears will likely lean on their rushing attack with QB Mitchel Trubisky dealing with a shoulder injury. Even if he can suit up, it's more likely they'll turn to the ground game, giving Howard the opportunity he needs. 
  • Bears D/ST Score a Touchdown/Win (+650)- In a league where offenses have been scoring at will, this defense is the best in the league. Not only have they kept the opposition out of the end zone, but they've found it themselves as this defense scored five touchdowns this season.
