With the Packers-Lions squaring off on Thanksgiving, there are limited player prop betting options inside the NFC North. We take a look at the Bears-Vikings matchup for the top player props in Week 12.
Neither of these teams are near the top of the 2024 Super Bowl odds, but there are still plenty of appealing prop bets.
Here are my NFL picks for the best player props in the Bears-Vikings showdown.
D.J. Moore the Bears’ Top Receiving Option
Justin Fields’ return means an uptick in production for Bears receiver D.J. Moore. The wideout had 7 catches for 96 receiving yards and a touchdown against the Lions in Week 11.
Moore is Fields’ favorite receiving option making the playmaker’s props appealing until the Vegas odds adjust. The wideout’s receiving yards prop is set at 59.5 yards against the Vikings in Week 12. Smash the over at your favorite sportsbook.
NFL Player Prop Pick: D.J. Moore over 59.5 receiving yards
Jordan Addison Is a Threat for Vikings
Regardless of the Vikings quarterback, the one consistent thing has been the offense’s reliance on rookie wideout Jordan Addison. Like Kirk Cousins, Josh Dobbs has already built rapport with Addison.
There are a few ways to approach Addison’s prop bets. We like the over on Addison’s 3.5 receptions, a number the receiver has topped in four of his last five outings. The nice thing about props like Addison’s is the NFL lines do not come into play.
NFL Player Prop Pick: Jordan Addison over 3.5 receptions
Fields Leans on His Legs
After being sidelined for more than a month, Fields had 18 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown on the ground against the Lions in Week 11. Chicago is not being cautious with their quarterback despite his recent injuries.
Fields is unlikely to exceed 100 rushing yards most weeks, but 52.5 yards is more than reasonable versus the Vikings. Bet online Fields to go over his rushing prop against the Vikings.
NFL Player Prop Pick: Justin Fields over 52.5 rushing yards
Questions of the Day

Placing a bet on a player to score the first touchdown offers a high payout. Taking Bears receiver D.J. Moore to score the first TD of the game is worth a flier against the Vikings.
What are the most common mistakes when placing a futures bet on the Super Bowl?
Fans tend to want to bet favorites to win the Super Bowl in future bets. Winning a Super Bowl is hard and a lot can go wrong for a team atop the title odds. Taking a team in the middle of the odds offers the best value.
