Justin Fields Over 208.5 Passing Yards (-115)

After missing two games with a rib injury, Fields had 224 passing yards last week against the Green Bay Packers. Fields has thrown for over 220 yards in two straight games that he has finished. More importantly, Fields has averaged 218.5 passing yards per game over the past four games he completed. Meanwhile, the Vikings have given up the fifth-most passing yards to quarterbacks this season, entering Week 15. They have surrendered an average of 271.5 passing yards per game to quarterbacks this season. Furthermore, the Vikings have given up an average of 304.8 passing yards per game to quarterbacks over the past four weeks. While he won’t have 300 passing yards tonight, Fields will finish with over 230 passing yards.

Dalvin Cook Over 91.5 Rushing Yards (-115)

As crazy as it sounds, Cook should dislocate his shoulder more often. After missing only one game with a dislocated shoulder, Cook had a season-high 205 rushing yards last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. More importantly, he has averaged 97.8 rushing yards per game this season. Furthermore, Cook has averaged 106.8 rushing yards per game over the past five games, totaling at least 86 rushing yards in four of those contests. Meanwhile, the Bears have given up an average of 100.9 rushing yards per game to running backs this season. Furthermore, they have given up over 130 rushing yards to running backs in three of the past eight games. After his historic performance last week, Cook should have no trouble rushing for at least 100 yards tonight.

Darnell Mooney Over 3.5 Receptions (-145)

Last week Mooney had his worst game of the season, finishing with one reception on five targets. However, he has averaged four receptions on 7.3 targets per game this season. More importantly, Mooney has picked up his play with Allen Robinson out of the lineup. In the three games without Robinson this season, Mooney has at least five receptions in each one. Furthermore, Mooney has five or more receptions in 61.5 percent of the games this season. Meanwhile, the Vikings have given up an average of 14.1 receptions per game to wide receivers, the fifth-most in the NFL. Over the past four weeks, wide receivers have averaged 15.3 receptions per game against the Vikings. With Robinson out tonight, Mooney could hit the over on this prop bet by halftime.

Kirk Cousins Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-155)

While Cousin completed a season-low 45.2 percent of his passes, he threw two touchdowns last week. More importantly, he has averaged 2.1 passing touchdowns per game this season, throwing at least two touchdowns in 77 percent of the games. Furthermore, Cousins has thrown at least two touchdowns in six straight contests. Meanwhile, the Bears have given up an average of two passing touchdowns per game this season, the fourth-most in the NFL. Over the past three weeks, they have given up an average of 2.7 passing touchdowns per game to quarterbacks. The Bears have given up at least two passing touchdowns in just under 70 percent of the games this season. Cousins is more likely to throw four passing touchdowns tonight than finish with under two passing touchdowns.

David Montgomery Over 59.5 Rushing Yards (-115)

Despite missing four games with a knee injury, Montgomery leads the team in rushing yards this season. He has averaged 67.6 rushing yards per game this season, totaling over 60 rushing yards in over half the games. Furthermore, Montgomery has averaged 59.8 rushing yards per game since returning from the knee injury. Meanwhile, the Vikings have given up an average of 100.3 rushing yards per game this season to running backs. They have given up at least 60 rushing yards to running backs in every game this season. Furthermore, the Vikings have given up an average of 109 rushing yards per game to running backs over the past three weeks. Montgomery should hit the over on this prop bet early in the fourth quarter.
