Commanders vs. Bears Player Prop Odds and Bets for Thursday Night Football

Carson Wentz, Darnell Mooney, and David Montgomery all have enticing player prop bets for the prime-time matchup in Week 6.

The Washington Commanders head to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears for "Thursday Night Football."

The game total in this game is low (only 38.5) so oddsmakers are not expecting a shootout. With that in mind, here are four player props to consider for this matchup.

Darnell Mooney over 44.5 receiving yards (-110)

Justin Fields had his best outing of the season last Sunday, passing for 208 yards and a TD and finishing with a passer rating of 118.8. That is good news for Mooney, who is playing 90 percent of the snaps and leads all Chicago receivers with 21 targets, 193 yards, 350 targeted air yards, and a 24.7 percent target share. The Commanders have allowed an average of 190 yards per game to opposing wideouts and Mooney should easily see at least 45 of those.

David Montgomery anytime TD (+120)

Montgomery picked up right where he left off on Sunday as the lead back for the Bears. He didn’t get a lot going on the ground, but he still logged a good day by catching four passes for 62 yards and finding the end zone. The Commanders have allowed six TDs to opposing RBs this year across five contests. Three were rushing and three were receiving, so plus money for Montgomery to score is a bet I am willing to make.

J.D. McKissic over 19.5 receiving yards (-110)

McKissic remains the go-to guy for the two-minute drill, despite the debut of Brian Robinson Jr. in Week 5. McKissic has exceeded this prop in four out of five contests this season and this week he gets a Bears defense that has allowed an average of 6.32 yards per target and a 76 percent catch rate to opposing running backs.

Carson Wentz over 32.5 passing attempts (-125)

Wentz has gone over this prop in every single game this season, with the fewest passing attempts of the season in Week 5 (38). The Commanders have the second-most passing attempts (210) in the NFL and though the matchup is better for the Commanders on the ground, I have a feeling Wentz will still be needing to put it in the air.
