The Chicago Bears and Las Vegas Raiders are not easy to figure out. The Bears have been all over the place so far, suffering blowout losses and even a quarterback injury, yet they sit at 2-2 on the season. Meanwhile, the Raiders started 3-0 with two overtime wins before getting overwhelmed by the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football. It’s not too dramatic to say that both teams need a win this weekend, as the Raiders need to stay alive in the AFC West and the Bears have a coaching staff and general manager on the hot seat. But, no matter what team you’re favoring, let’s take a look at the players to keep an eye on. Here are four player props I’m liking when the Raiders face off against the Bears.
Chicago Bears vs. Las Vegas Raiders Player Prop Search Tool
Hunter Renfrow Over 47.5 Receiving Yards
If you’ve been following my player props over the past few weeks, you know I’ve been big on Hunter Renfrow. In addition to his “hit stick” highlight on Monday night, he’s been pretty impressive in this Raiders offense. Renfrow has 249 yards so far this season and has made some impressive catches, even as the Raiders passing attack stalled last week. I expect he’ll get plenty of looks against the Chicago Bears, a team that I don’t see being able to stand up to a strong passing attack.
Allen Robinson Under 4.5 Receptions
Poor Allen Robinson. I truly believe he’s a talented receiver, but he’s been trapped in a limiting Chicago Bears offense for years. He put together 1,250 yards and six TDs last year but has not kept up that pace with Andy Dalton and Justin Fields throwing to him. Since a productive Week 1, Robinson is catching 2.3 passes per game. Those numbers didn’t change much going from Dalton to Fields, so continue to fade the talented receiver until they start finding a way to implement him in the offense.
Henry Ruggs Over 46.5 Receiving Yards
Another Raiders receiver I’m a big fan of. Ruggs is fun to watch, and he’s been putting up numbers this season. The major highlight was his 113-yard performance against the Steelers, complete with a touchdown. He’s had 46 yards or more in every single game this year, and I don’t see that number dropping against this Bears defense. Take advantage of this low number and hit the over.
Daniel Carlson Over 7.5 Points
I’ve been ignoring kickers way too much in my props, which is too bad because there’s quite a bit of fun strategy involved. Bettors might avoid Carlson after his miss against the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football, but I think that’s a mistake. Outside of that bad primetime game, the kicker has averaged 11.3 points per game. I think the Raiders are going to shake off last week and get back into form on offense in this game, which should mean a good amount of field goals and extra points. Carlson should go over 7.5 points with ease.
