ATD (+500, FanDuel)
I got this number at +600 before Logan Thomas was declared inactive and every Commanders playmaker's numbers moved down a bit.
We’re taking a swing on the Commanders’ pass-catching back, who’s one of the best in the NFL. McKissic is third in targets among RBs this season, trailing only Christian McCaffrey and Austin Ekeler.
The Commanders backfield has gotten more crowded of late, but McKissic is consistently playing more snaps than Antonio Gibson, and Brian Robinson Jr. likely isn’t ready to take on a full workload.
McKissic only has two red-zone targets, but both came inside the 10-yard line and one was last week. The Bears have also given up eight rushing touchdowns this season, so I’m willing to take a chance on McKissic at a number like this.
To Throw Interception (-120, BetMGM)
I’ve been banking on the futility of quarterbacks playing in primetime this season, especially those playing on the road. A whopping 12 of 16 quarterbacks playing on the road in primetime this season have thrown interceptions.
Wentz has thrown an interception in four of five games this season, and Chicago has five INTs this season, which is 10th in the NFL.
We’re getting a bit of a boost in odds here. Wentz was between -145 to -165 across his last three games.
