A look at some of the proposition bets for the 2016 Chicago Bears season.
Hear ye, hear ye, my on-line gambling brethren, the Chicago Bears prop bets for the season have been released (Bovada.lv). I’m going to go through the available bets and logical picks, while also throwing in some of my own props that the websites are missing out on.
1) Rushing Yards for the season: Over/ Under 750
OVER- Last year Langford was a rookie backing up Matt Forte, and he still rushed for 537 yards. I know he will be splitting carries with Carey and Howard this year, but make no mistake, he is the number 1 running back.
2) Rushing and Receiving TD’s for the season: Over/ Under 6.5
UNDER- So this is where it gets tricky. Last season Langford had 6 rushing TD’s and 1 receiving TD. With the presence of a healthy Alshon Jeffrey and Kevin White, there will be fewer receiving TD’s to go around. Similarly, the expanded role of Carey and the arrival of Howard means that goal line carries for Langford will be much less as well. Despite Langford’s overall expanded role he will be hard pressed to get 7 TD’s this season.
Next: Kevin White
