Some of the NFL best props for Week 4 are in the NFC North but there is a limited Sunday slate in the division. Be sure to check out the BetUS Props Builder for a plethora of football betting options such as the top NFL picks predictions listed below.
The Vikings square off against the Panthers in a battle of winless teams. After a difficult showing in Week 3, we are leaning heavily on Minnesota heading into Week 4.
The Bears appear to be at a low point but face a Broncos team that gave up 70 points against the Dolphins. If Chicago’s offense is going to get back on track, this would be the week for Justin Fields and company to make it happen.
Here is a look at my best NFL player props in the NFC North for Week 5.
Kirk Cousins Goes Off Versus Panthers
The Vikings are not winning games, but Kirk Cousins sure is putting up stats, much to the delight of fantasy owners. Cousins is going to continue his hot streak against a winless Panthers team.
#Vikings Kirk Cousins this season is on pace for:

The veteran signal-caller has thrown two or more touchdowns in all three of Minnesota’s games this season. Cousins continues this touchdown streak against a struggling Carolina defense.
NFL Props Pick: Kirk Cousins over 1.5 touchdowns versus Panthers
Roschon Johnson Takes Advantage of Poor Broncos Rushing Defense
As I am writing this, the Dolphins may have scored another touchdown against the Broncos defense. The Bears are in desperate need of good news and here it comes in the form of the Denver defense, which allowed a whopping 726 total yards to Miami in Week 3.
Chicago has had a balanced rushing attack (if you can call it that) with Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson. The Bears are facing a Broncos defense that allowed 350 rushing yards to the Dolphins.
Johnson has had a continuous role in the Chicago offense and has a juicy matchup against Denver. The low number of 33.5 rushing yards has my attention as we back the over for Johnson.

NFL Props Pick: Roschon Johnson over 33.5 rushing yards versus Broncos
Jordan Addison Gets his Against Panthers
If Cousins is going to have another nice outing, it means the Vikings receivers are also going to eat. Everyone knows about Justin Jefferson which is why his over-under is near 100 yards.
Jefferson is not the only receiver that has been a key part of Minnesota’s offense. Rookie Jordan Addison has already carved out a role as one of Cousins’ favorite targets.
#Vikings Jordan Addison Snap% and target% by week:
– Snap%: 56%
– Target%: 14.5%

Addison’s lowest yardage total through three games was 52 yards against the Chargers in Week 3. With the yardage number set at 38.5 yards, this is a great spot to bet online for Addison to hit the over against a bad Panthers team.
NFL props pick: Jordan Addison over 38.5 receiving yards versus Panthers
Cam Akers Scores in Vikings Debut
Newly acquired running back Cam Akers is expected to make his Minnesota debut against Carolina. The Vikings traded for Akers for a reason which is Minnesota is not entirely pleased with RB1 Alexander Mattison. Akers to score a touchdown offers a favorable return in the Las Vegas odds for most betting markets.
The #Vikings released RB Myles Gaskin. I would expect RB Cam Akers to be active and get touches this weekend against the Panthers.
