Top Sunday Night Football Props To Bet: Los Angeles Rams vs. Chicago Bears
There’s nothing like Sunday Night Football. After watching your team during the 1:00 pm or 4:00 pm slate, you get to sit back, relax, and hopefully pick some winners. Now, everyone knows that the Rams are favored by 7.5, and the over-under is set at 46.5, but what about some props?
On the outside looking in, this one has blowout potential written all over it. The Rams will look to show off their new offense led by Matthew Stafford, while the Bears will be starting Andy Dalton, which is just prolonging the inevitable switch to Justin Fields.
Looking at these two teams, I like three props from this game if you want to add some extra action in addition to whatever other plays you like in this one.
Robert Woods To Score Anytime (+105)
After back-to-back 1,100+ yard seasons, Robert Woods took a step back to just 936 yards in 2020, but his touchdown number went up from two to six. The Rams are known to throw the ball, and with the swap of Matthew Stafford in for Jared Goff, they will likely move the ball more effectively.
Looking at the Bears’ Cornerback situation, it’s not great. Jaylon Johnson, who struggled in his rookie season, and Kindle Vildor are projected to be their starting cornerbacks. That sounds like a matchup nightmare for Chicago.
With Woods as Stafford’s number one target in the passing game, I expect him to be featured heavily in the offense, picking on Chicago’s young Cornerback group.
Matthew Stafford Over 23.5 completions (-125)
Last year, the Rams threw the ball on average 36.9 times per game. So if Stafford throws the ball 37 times on Sunday, he would need at least a 64.9 completion percentage to hit the over on that line.
Last year, the Bears allowed opposing Quarterbacks to have a completion percentage of 64%. Considering the downgrade in Cornerbacks from the previous year to this year, there’s a good chance that number goes up.
Stafford had 24 or more completions in seven games last season and had a completion percentage above the 64.9 mark eight times.
Chicago Bears Under 18.5 (-110)
In 2020, the Rams defense was out of this world. They allowed just 18.5 points per game and only 17 passing touchdowns against. With Aaron Donald and his 13.5 sacks getting after the cornerback with All-Pro Jalen Ramsey locking down the opposing team’s number one receiver, it’s a recipe for success.
In seven games last season, they held their opponents to 17 points or less, and one of those teams was the Chicago Bears. So sure, it’s not the same roster as last season, but is Andy Dalton taking this unit over the top? I don’t think so.
There’s the potential of this one getting out of hand early, resulting in the Bears having to have Andy Dalton drop back to throw more, which is exactly what the Rams want.
