Chicago Bears Vs. New Orleans Saints Player Prop Picks

The 4-4 New Orleans Saints face the 2-6 Chicago Bears in a game where the Saints are 8.5-point favorites. While the spread and over/under are difficult to pin down in this one, there are solid opportunities in the player prop pool. In this article, I’ll break down some player prop selections for this Bears vs. Saints game.

Be sure to use the player prop search tool above to make sure you’re getting the best odds for whichever wager you select. Let’s get to work.

Alvin Kamara Over 4.5 Receptions (-115 DraftKings)

Since returning from an early season injury, Alvin Kamara’s pass game volume has been through the roof. He’s averaging a wild 7.8 receptions per game this season and has been over this number in three out of five games. A trailing game script has usually been where Kamara has been more involved in the passing game, and while the Saints are 8.5-point favorites in this game, there’s a silver lining here.

The Bears allow the sixth-most receptions per game to running backs, and Austin Ekeler finished with seven catches against them last week despite a 17-point win. The rest of the market is juiced pretty heavily to the over, but there’s still a -115 at DraftKings at the time I’m writing this, so make sure you’re getting the best available number.

Darnell Mooney Over 26.5 Receiving Yards (-120 BetMGM)

The Saints have an excellent secondary across the board, but that’s especially true on the perimeter where boundary cornerbacks Marshon Lattimore and Paulson Adebo are top 25 corners by catch rate allowed per PFF. However, they’ve allowed the fourth-most receiving yards in the slot, which is where Darnell Mooney operates.

When he’s in the slot, Mooney will be facing Alontae Taylor, who ranks 105th out of 126 qualified cornerbacks in PFF coverage grades. Mooney was shut out last week, so this requires a leap of faith, but he had 32 yards against the Raiders in rookie Tyson Bagent’s other start this season. Mooney could also be worth a flier in the touchdown market, and the best odds I’m seeing are +600 on DraftKings.

Rashid Shaheed Over 31.5 Receiving Yards (-120 BetMGM)

Last week, Saints wide receiver Rashid Shaheed had his best game of the season with three catches for 153 yards against the Colts. He only ran 16 routes in the game, making his production all the more impressive, but he’s been a downfield burner all season as his 20.8 yards per reception rank second among qualified receivers.

Derek Carr hasn’t shied away from taking deep shots this season as he ranks third in deep ball attempt rate per PFF. The Bears have been susceptible to the deep ball all season, making this a strong matchup for Shaheed, who is fourth in the NFL in deep targets. Look for him to get the better of this secondary downfield for a big play at least once in this game.
