  • The Seattle Seahawks are 4-point underdogs to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
  • We breakdown two player prop bets with value: Bears WR Anthony Miller over/under 18.5 receiving yards and Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett over/under 50.5 receiving yards.

There are two NFL player prop bets offering value in the Seattle Seahawks-Chicago Bears matchup on Monday Night Football, which kicks off at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The Action Network’s public betting data will often be used in this data-driven analysis of props, along with the FantasyLabs prop tool.

If you haven’t checked out the props tool, you’re missing out. So far this NFL season, props that had a value of 10 out of 10 have gone 42-22 against the closing number, good for a 66% win rate.

Below, we highlight two of the props popping the most in our projections.

All lines are as of 2:30 p.m. ET on Monday.

Bears WR Anthony Miller

The pick: Over 18.5 receiving yards (-130 at 5Dimes)

Miller looks locked into a solid role in Chicago’s offense after running 39 pass routes in Week 1. He saw only three targets but had a solid 56% percent snap rate, mostly operating in the slot where Emmanuel Sanders just eviscerated this Seahawks defense in Week 1.

Not a great line here, and I’ll be pounding the over unless we see some dramatic movement.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett

The pick: Over 50.5 receiving yards (-130 at 5Dimes)

Who stands to benefit the most from Doug Baldwin’s MCL injury? My money is on Lockett, as he ran 67% of his routes in the slot in Week 1, the area of the field where Randall Cobb just went nuts against this Bears secondary.

Lockett could exceed this line in a variety of different ways, through volume in the middle of the field or literally one play if Russell Wilson can get outside the pocket and allow him time to get loose downfield.

One potential red flag: Chicago’s pass rush is extremely underrated, and I expect Wilson to be under duress the entire game behind this pathetic Seahawks offensive line.
