3 Best Prop Bets for Bears vs Rams Sunday Night Football
The NFL's Week 1 slate features an exciting Sunday Night Football matchup between the Chicago Bears and Los Angeles Rams.
Here's three of the best prop bets for this Week 1 clash.
Bears vs Rams Prop Bets
1. Allen Robinson - Receiving Yards: Under 65.5 (-114)
Allen Robinson is a consistent force at the wide receiver position despite dealing with inconsistent quarterback play throughout his career. He's coming off of a 2020 campaign where he racked up the second-most receiving yards of his career (1,250), and he should be new QB Andy Dalton's favorite weapon. Still, this matchup presents a ton of problems. Robinson will draw star cornerback Jalen Ramsey on Sunday night, who is a thorn in the side of All-Pro wideouts. When Robinson was covered by Ramsey in their Week 7 meeting last year, the Bears' top target recorded just 1 reception for 42 yards. He finished that game with 4 catches for 70 yards overall, but Ramsey can shadow Robinson much more closely in this one given the lack of other weapons on the Bears. It's hard to see Chicago's passing game having a good night against a top defense in the league.
2. Matthew Stafford - Passing Yards: Over 270.5 (-114)
The Rams decided to go all-in by trading for Matthew Stafford, and his arrival has the team buzzing with Super Bowl hopes. Stafford inherits an offense with one of the best O-lines in the league and a boatload of pass-catching weapons. Stafford passed for 297 and 402 yards, respectively, in two games against the Bears last year while with the Detroit Lions. He should have no trouble replicating those numbers playing against a Chicago secondary that got worse this offseason.
3. Andy Dalton - Passing Yards: Under 213.5 (-114)
On the flip side, Stafford's counterpart seems destined to struggle. Dalton has the unenvious position of facing the league's top defense in 2020. LA surrendered the fewest passing yards per game (193.8) last season as Ramsey and company seemingly shut down top receiving weapons on a weekly basis. That's bad news for Dalton, whose pass-catchers outside of Robinson are nothing special. The Rams also ranked second in sacks per game (3.2) last year. Dalton is set to play behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league, and it'll be impossible for him to establish a passing rhythm if he's getting knocked to the ground constantly.
