MNF Player Prop Picks: Cash in on Justin Fields' Legs

We've got two Monday Night Football games tonight so it only makes sense we bet on both. At the moment, the books have nothing for the game between the Las Vegas Raiders and Cleveland Browns which is a shame. But, I'm confident those will come later so all we have to do is remain patient. The thing is, we have plenty to choose from in the Chicago Bears vs Minnesota Vikings matchup so why not just focus on that? When you see what they're offering on Justin Fields, you won't want to bet anything else anyway. (I'm kidding, you'll definitely want to bet some other stuff too.)

Bears vs. Vikings odds

Justin Fields Over 37.5 rushing yards (-110)

Line available at BetMGM at time of publishing.

I'm over at BetMGM for this one since they aren't scared of Justin Fields. DraftKings pulled his number and FanDuel has him listed at 40.5 for -110. As for Barstool, I'm not even sure if they had anything for him to begin with but at the time of this writing, there's nothing posted.

Let me tell you guys about Justin Fields. In his last six games, he hasn't gone under this number once. If you want to be a hater, you could say he did against the Baltimore Ravens when he only ran for 23 yards but he got knocked out of that game with bruised ribs. He would have gone for way more than 37.5 yards had he not been hurt. Everyone knows that. Some are even saying it was a dirty hit. I'm not, but some people are.

My Justin Fields theory goes like this; he's good. And fast. Somewhere around the time the Bears played Tampa Bay on October 24th, is when the Bears figured this out. Since then he's run the ball at least eight times in every game except the one where the Ravens purposely hurt him (again, other people's words, not mine). If this guy runs the ball eight times tonight he's getting 37.5 yards. He's averaging 5.92 yards per carry people. It's simple math.

Even though we have math on our side tonight, we also have the Minnesota Vikings pulling a few strings for us. Only nine teams in the entire NFL have given up more rushing yards to the quarterback position this season than they have. That's despite the fact that only four teams have seen fewer quarterback rushing attempts. That's crazy. By my calculations, this has a 0% chance of losing.
