Give me the over on both of these Alshon Jeffery prop bets

NFL: Preseason-Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Online sportsbook Bovada has released a number of prop bets for the 2016 NFL season, and we’ll fill you in on their Chicago Bears over/under bets right here.

A couple of days ago we looked at their Jay Cutler (click here) and Jeremy Langford (click here) props, but this time we’ll peek at their Alshon Jeffery over/unders.

Alshon Jeffery - Total Receiving Yards in the 2016 Regular Season
Over/Under - 1,150

Alshon Jeffery - Total Receiving TD's in the 2016 Regular Season
Over/Under - 7.5

Much like with the other props we looked at, I think this one comes down to health. Jeffery hasn’t been as injury plagued as it seems, he did play in all 16 games in 2013 and 2014. Sure he battled through some minor ailments in 2014, but he toughed it out and ended up with 1,133 receiving yards and a career best 10 touchdown catches.

The previous year he had a career high 1,421 yards and 7 TDs. Last year he averaged the highest yards per game of his career, but he only played in 9 games. He had 4 TDs in those contests, so playing all 16 games places him over or close the over on both prop bets.

It may be wishful thinking, but I’ll take the over on both of these as well.

What do you guys think about these props?
