Touchdown scorer pick for Bears at Giants in NFL Week 4 – Shaw Local

For the second week in a row, points will be tough to come by when the Chicago Bears take on the New York Giants on Sunday. Kick-off is scheduled for midday at MetLife Stadium in a two-team 2-1 clash.

Caesars Sportsbook, the official odds partner of Bet Chicago Sports, currently has a total of 39.5 for this week’s game. The Giants are also favored by three points, which has been the gap for much of the week.

But hopefully you’ve already placed your side or total bet for this game. It’s time for my weekly touchdown pick, something I plan to do for every Bears game this season. These bets will be smaller as I don’t expect to have much success with this accessory market during the season.

That said, we got a touchdown scoring pick in last week’s 23-20 win over the Houston Texans. I was on rookie running back Dameon Pierce to find the end zone for the first time in his career, and that +108 ticket was cashed on his 1-yard TD run in the second quarter. So let’s try to stay warm this week.

Running backs favored to find paydirt

It’s no surprise that running backs have the best scoring chances on Sunday, especially since both teams have relied on the ground game for three weeks.

Giants running back Saquon Barkley has +275 first-touchdown odds and -180 TD odds at any point in the game at Caesars Sportsbook. Barkley has scored in two of the last three games, including Monday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys.

Khalil Herbert, who is expected to start with David Montgomery ruled out, has +370 to score the game’s first touchdown and -107 to register a touchdown anytime in the game. Herbert had two rushing touchdowns and 157 yards on 20 carries when he replaced Montgomery last weekend.

Shane Jackson’s Choice

The purpose of this weekly column is to have fun. This is where I just want to have fun with my money, rather than looking for some sort of edge before placing a bet. As such, I want to have cash on Herbert’s first season start.

Full disclosure: I covered Herbert when he was playing collegiate for the University of Kansas. Due to Kansas’ talent in the backfield, Herbert didn’t get as much work as he deserved. But he always seemed to get the most out of his touches, and it’s clear the Bears saw that when they drafted him in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Herbert has delivered his only two starts of the season as a rookie. He recorded 97 yards on 19 attempts against the Green Bay Packers before following up with 100 yards on 18 carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Expect Herbert to take advantage of his opportunity again this weekend. Fanduel’s Sportsbook actually offers a +125 price on Herbert to score a TD, so that’s what I’ve officially played in this market. But I don’t hate his Caesars Sportsbook rating of +450 for scoring two touchdowns, if you want even more juice.
