Bears vs. Panthers: Thursday Night Football Player Props & Odds

The Chicago Bears host the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football to kick off Week 10 of the NFL season, with the game set to begin at 8:15 p.m. ET and airing on Amazon Prime Video. The Bears are at on the point spread, with the Panthers getting odds on the moneyline. The over/under line is total points.

The Bears are anticipating being without Justin Fields (thumb) for a fourth straight game, leaving Tyson Bagent to start at quarterback. Bagent was a star at the Division II level with Shepherd University. The rookie has completed 67.3% of his passes through four starts, with five interceptions in his last two outings on the road against the Chargers and Saints.  

The Panthers switched play-calling duties to offensive coordinator Thomas Brown during their Week 7 bye, then defeated the Texans 15-13 for their first win of the season. Carolina’s defense played well against the Colts last Sunday, but Bryce Young threw two pick sixes in a 27-13 defeat. 

Below is a tool where you can find team and specific player props for both teams this Thursday. The default is set to D.J. Moore. Odds are provided by some of the top NFL betting sites.

This is one of the more straightforward options to bet. Pick a player, and cash your bet if that player scores a touchdown at any point in the game. The odds become longer if you pick the player to score the first or last touchdown of the contest. 

Khalil Herbert (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 5. While Herbert could be Chicago’s lead back, D’Onta Foreman might handle some red zone touches. The Panthers’ backfield is also mired in some uncertainty with Miles Sanders working behind Chuba Hubbard in recent weeks.

Bagent averaged a modest 5.8 yards per attempt over his first two starts, which came at home against the Vikings and Raiders. He’s thrown more often in comeback bids over the past two weeks on the road. Bagent has three touchdown passes and six interceptions in four starts. 

Bryce Young is averaging 5.5 yards per attempt while throwing 36 passes per game over the first seven starts of his career. He’s averaged more attempts (39) on the road but is only completing 58% of his passes for 203.3 yards per game over three away games.

Receiving yard props for Thursday Night Football

Adam Thielen has been the main target for Young with 76.3 receiving yards per game, the 14th-highest mark in the NFL this season. Bears’ top target D.J. Moore ranks 12th at 81.7 receiving yards per game and ranks 13th in yards per reception (15.6). Moore caught three of his five touchdowns this season in a Thursday night game at Washington in Week 5.  

Reception props for Thursday Night Football

Thielen has recorded 62 catches through eight games this season. The Panthers’ next leading receivers are running backs Chuba Hubbard and Miles Sanders, with D.J. Chark and Terrace Marshall accounting for 17 receptions on the year. Tight end Hayden Hurts has 16 catches. 

Moore leads the Bears with 47 receptions, and tight end Cole Kmet has 41 catches, with both players tallying five receiving TDs. Darnell Mooney has caught 20 balls this season. 

Rushing yard props for Thursday Night Football

Khalil Herbert was leading Chicago’s running backs in touches before he went down with an ankle injury in Week 5. Herbert is eligible to return from injured reserve this week, but he will not be playing. Former Panthers back D’Onta Foreman has been leading Chicago’s backfield with 60 carries for 271 yards and three total touchdowns over his last four appearances. 

Miles Sanders missed Week 6 with a groin injury and saw a limited workload in Week 8 against Houston. Sanders carried six times for 39 yards and caught three balls for 22 yards against the Colts last week. Chuba Hubbard continued to operate as the lead back for Carolina, with 16 carries and six targets in Week 9. 

Longest rush props for Thursday Night Football

Bet on any of these backs to break a long run in the wager that specifies the yardage of their longest rush.
