The final Sunday Night game of the season is upon us with Kansas City traveling to Solider Field to take on the Bears. The Chiefs have won four games in a row and their defense is starting to come together at the right time. It’s been a disappointing season for the Bears who entered the season with high expectations after last season’s playoff appearance. Here are my top prop bets for Sunday Night Football.

Spread: Kansas City – 6.5
Sunday Night Football Prop Bets
1. Mitchell Trubisky Over 231.5 Passing Yards (-113)
Trubisky has faced a lot of adversity this season with the Bears struggling offensively. But, he has quietly played very well over the last four games. He’s averaged 298 yards passing and has eight touchdowns during the four game stretch. It will be cold Sunday night, but overall the weather should not be much of a factor. I think Trubisky puts together another solid game against a Chiefs defense that has played well recently.
2. Travis Kelce At Least One Touchdown (+110)
Once again, Travis Kelce is having a Pro Bowl season with 86 catches and over a thousand yards receiving. When Patrick Mahomes needs a play to move the chains, he looks Kelce’s way. Even with his elite numbers, Kelce only has four touchdown catches on the season and his last one was over a month ago. Mahomes has battled injuries this year and seems to be getting healthy as the team heads towards the playoffs. With Mahomes’s health improving, I like Kelce’s chances of reaching the end zone.
3. David Montgomery At Least 16 Carries (-105)
Kansas City has struggled to stop the run all season, and I think Chicago will attempt to establish the run which will help keep Mahomes and the Chiefs offense off the field. The Chiefs allow over 131 yards per game on the ground which is near the bottom of the league. The Bears are only 29th in the NFL in rushing yards so something will have to give in this matchup. When Chicago does run the ball, Montgomery gets the majority of the touches. He has 148 more carries than Tarik Cohen this season.
4. LeSean McCoy Under 25.5 Rushing Yards (-129)
McCoy has only had double-digit carries once since Week 8 and had six carries last week. He ended up getting less touches than Spencer Ware and Darwin Thompson. Chiefs running back Damien Williams is also scheduled to return this week which will create even more competition in the Kansas City backfield. The Chiefs could potentially roll out four different running backs which would severely limit McCoy’s opportunities.
