Best Cincinnati Bengals vs. Chicago Bears September 19 Prop Bets

The Cincinnati Bengals will be traveling to Soldier Field in Chicago to take on the Chicago Bears on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST on FOX. The Bengals look to continue their week 1 success vs. a Bears team who struggled in their first game behind Andy Dalton to go 0-1.

The Bears are a slight 2.5 point favorite to win this game who have struggled to figure out who will ultimately lead this team. The Bears chose to primarily use Andy Dalton in their first game and only brought Justin Fields in for a select number of plays.

How long will the Bears stick with Dalton until they turn to their new young quarterback in Fields?

Let’s deep dive into some of the best prop bets currently in this game.

Best Prop Bets

Let’s start with an exciting first prop bet, taking the over on the longest completion by Joe Burrow at 36.5. This prop bet is nowhere near a guarantee, but after seeing Burrow connect with Ja’Marr Chase on a streak for a 50-yard touchdown, it made it feel like there would be a couple of these attempts each game with Chase’s speed.

The next intriguing prop bet is David Montgomery, going over 84.5 rush+rec yards. The Bengals' defense did well to stop the Vikings rush last week, but I wouldn’t expect them to have the same success against Montgomery who rushed for 108 yards on 16 attempts and caught a pass for 10 yards, as well.

Chicago’s lack of clear direction in its passing game makes Montgomery an easy option, especially in most of the early downs. On third-and-longs Montgomery may get a chance to get some easy yards on a screen pass.

Lastly, let’s go with another exciting prop bet with taking Evan McPherson on the over for kicking points at 6.5 points. Mcpherson was the late-game hero, hitting the OT game-winning field goal to give the Bengals the win. This is just a fun bet.

Head coach Zac Taylor is confident in his kicker as he made a 53-yard field goal earlier in the game. On tough fourth-down conversion opportunities, look for Taylor to trust his kicker to give them some needed points in a tough atmosphere in Chicago.

Outlook

This game should be another tight one for the Bengals all the way until the end. It will be interesting to see what Bears’ head coach, Matt Nagy, does with his quarterback situation and whether he wants to switch it up early or give Dalton more chances to prove himself as a leader.

The Bears’ fans have made it clear that they want to see Justin Fields get a real chance to be the leader of this team. The Bengals and their fans hope to see Andy Dalton on the field to show their growth after getting rid of Dalton for Joe Burrow. A win against a former quarterback would be sweet, especially considering they will be 2-0 going into Week 3.
