After a number of turkey filled days, Week 12 of the NFL regular season wraps up with an NFC North matchup. The Chicago Bears will travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings on Monday Night Football. Minnesota took down Chicago 19-13 back in Week 6 and will look to do the same tonight to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Our NFL player props are heating back up after a nice 4-1 Thanksgiving weekend. Let's stay hot with our top picks for Bears at Vikings on Monday Night Football. Thanks, as always, for reading and good luck with all of your wagers!
Get on this one as fast as you possibly can! The Bears just announced that one of their top corners, rookie Tyrique Stevenson, will miss tonight's game with an ankle injury. Stevenson did a great job of limiting Addison in Week 6, so Chicago will definitely miss him tonight.
With Stevenson OUT, Addison shouldn't have much trouble hauling in at least 4 receptions. The stud rookie from USC has caught 4 or more passes in 7 of his 11 games this season. It also doesn't hurt that Addison has been getting about 2 more targets per game with Justin Jefferson on the shelf with an injured hamstring. (FYI: Jefferson is listed as questionable, but most reports say he won't play).
The matchup should be favorable for Addison. Not only is Stevenson out, but Chicago ranks just 27th in the league in opponent completion percentage. Let's hope Josh Dobbs hooks up with Addison early and often in this one. It'd be nice to cash this before halftime!
I'll be the first to admit that I have a bit of man-crush on Cole Kmet! The dude is jacked, and he plays about 90% of the Bears's offensive snaps. Now that Justin Fields is finally back under center, I expect Kmet to play an even bigger role in the Chicago offense.
For the season, Kmet's median number of receptions is 5. He's also gone over this total in 7 of his 11 games in 2023. The former Notre Dame star has also averaged 7 targets per game over his last 4 outings.
The Vikings don't exactly light the world on fire with their pass defense. Minnesota ranks next to last (31st) in opponent completion percentage (69.67%). I'd play Kmet's Over for anything under -145 or so.
I was pleasantly surprised that the juice was so low on this Over! If you don't have access to Hard Rock Sportsbook, I'm perfectly fine with the -120 juice over at BetMGM. Moore is Fields's favorite target, and he had no trouble catching 5 passes against Minnesota back in Week 6.
Moore's median target number per game is 8, so he should be plenty of passes come his way tonight against a subpar Vikings secondary. Just how bad is Minnesota on pass defense? They've given up the second-highest number of receptions to wide receivers this season.
Byron Murphy Jr. is a pretty good corner, so that's a little bit of a concern with this prop play. That being said, I still expect the Bears to find creative ways to keep Moore involved in this game. Let's play the Over and hope for lots of easy screen passes in Moore's direction.
