Online sports book Bovada recently dropped a bunch a prop bets for the 2015 NFL season. Included in them were a slew of over/under bets for the Chicago Bears during the 2015 season.

We'll examine them right here!

Quarterback Jay Cutler

Total Passing Yards Over/Under 3,800
Cutler has only eclipsed 3,800 twice in his career. The first was his lone Pro Bowl season in Denver, the 2nd was last year when he only played 15 games.

Total TD Passes Over/Under 24.5
Cutler went over this number three times, his final year in Denver, his 1st year with the Bears and last season.

Total Interceptions Over/Under 15.5
In the 6 seasons where Cutler played at least 15 games, he was only under 15.5 picks twice.

Running back Matt Forte

Total Rushing Yards Over/Under 1,100
Only twice in Forte's career has he topped 1,100 (2008, 2013), although he was over a thousand three other times.

Total Receiving Yards Over/Under 600
Forte has only gone over this number once, and that was last year with the pass happy Marc Trestman calling plays.

Total Rushing & Receiving TD's Over/Under 9.5
Forte had a career high 12 combined TDs in 2008 and 2013 and last year he had 10. Those were the only 3 seasons he went over 9.5.

Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery

Total Receiving Yards Over/Under 1,100
Jeffery went over this number both seasons he played all 16 games. I wonder of Bovada is leery of his "day to day" calf strain?

Total Receiving TD's Over/Under 8
His career high is 10, which he set last year. He had 7 in 2013 and 3 as a rookie.

Outside linebacker Jared Allen

Total Sacks Over/Under 8.5
In 11 years, Allen only failed to hit double digit sacks three times. He was only under 8.5 twice.
