Week 10 kicks off with the Carolina Panthers traveling to face the Chicago Bears on “Thursday Night Football.” The Bears are favored by 3.5 points with a total points line set at 38.5. Betting experts Tyler Fulghum, Eric Moody, Seth Walder, Anita Marks, and Aaron Schatz weigh in on their thoughts on the game.
Moody and Schatz lean towards the UNDER due to the low scoring output of both teams and the historical trend of primetime games going under the total points line. Fulghum agrees, adding that the Panthers +3.5 in a lower-scoring game is a solid bet. However, Marks has a different take, betting on a Same Game Parlay with multiple outcomes including the Bears ML and UNDER 42.5 points.
When it comes to player props, Moody suggests betting on Bryce Young to have over 1.5 passing touchdowns considering the Bears’ poor pass defense. Conversely, Walder advises taking Montez Sweat UNDER 0.5 sacks against a rookie quarterback with a high sack rate. Marks recommends Hubbard UNDER 43.5 rushing yards, while Fulghum believes Cole Kmet’s receiving yard prop of 35.5 against the Panthers is appealing.
Other prop bets include Moody’s pick of Chuba Hubbard OVER 14.5 receiving yards and Schatz preferring DJ Moore OVER 53.5 receiving yards. Walder suggests a bet on Frankie Luvu UNDER 8.5 tackles + assists, as well as Fulghum’s pick of Miles Sanders UNDER 36.5 rush + rec yds.
Walder is also leaning towards Bryce Young UNDER 21.5 pass completions, while Fulghum is eyeing Adam Thielen OVER 67.5 rec yds, expecting a bounce-back performance against the Bears’ soft pass defense.
In conclusion, the experts expect a low-scoring game with opportunities for various prop bets to capitalize on.
