Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel Both Projected to Outdo Darnell Mooney

  • The Chicago Bears and Washington Commanders are at a deadlock on Thursday Night Football.
  • Terry McLaurin (50.5) and Curtis Samuel (45.5) both have higher receiving O/U’s than Darnell Mooney (42.5).
  • McLaurin and Samuel both play for the Commanders, and Mooney is the projected receiving leader for the Bears.

CHICAGO - The Chicago Bears host the Washington Commanders on Thursday Night Football, and receiving targets on both teams will be put into the spotlight.

The Commanders have benefitted from the emergence of Curtis Samuel as a true receiving threat alongside Terry McLaurin.

The Bears, on the other hand, have seen an already weak WR room depleted further with Byron Pringle’s move to Injured Reserve, leaving Darnell Mooney as the only Bears WR with an O/U of more than 40 yards in the game, an occurrence that should be of note to NFL betting fans.

WAS – Terry McLaurin Yards O/U

  • Over 50.5 -110
  • Under 50.5 -110

McLaurin leads all receivers in this game in terms of how high his O/U is set, as he is the only WR with an O/U over 50 yards.

McLaurin has broken 50 yards in four of his five games played this season, with the only exception coming in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys.

WAS – Curtis Samuel Yards O/U

  • Over 45.5 -110
  • Under 45.5 -110

The often-injured Curtis Samuel has put together an impressive string of five games, only falling below 45.5 yards in the air once this season – also against the Dallas Cowboys.

Samuel’s snap count has skyrocketed. He played on 71% of snaps in the first game of the season, but on 90% by the fifth, so it’s clear he’s in Ron Rivera’s plans.

CHI – Darnell Mooney Yards O/U

  • Over 42.5 -110
  • Under 42.5 -110

It’s not a good sign for your team if the leading receiver’s O/U is below two of the receivers on the opposing team.

This is the situation the Bears find themselves in, with Darnell Mooney’s 42.5 O/U sitting below both Samuel and McLaurin’s.

Mooney didn’t even break 25 yards in the first three games of the season, but he’s broken 50 yards two consecutive games coming into this one.

The Chicago Bears host the Washington Commanders on Thursday Night Football. The game can be streamed on Amazon and Twitch, and kicks off at 8:15 p.m. ET.
