Here are PFF staff best bets in Chicago BearsNew England Patriots to wrap up Week 7 on “Monday Night Football:”

Ben Brown: Bears WR Equanimeous St. Brown — Over 14.5 receiving yards (-110)

• The clear No. 2 receiving option, St. Brown runs a route on over 60% of dropbacks and needs one target to cash this bet. It’s safe to assume Bill Belichick isn’t going to allow the Bears' top receiving option to beat him on Monday night. We should expect Darnell Mooney to get a decent dose of Jack Jones, which should lead to an uptick in volume for St. Brown.

Martyn Carlisle: Bears RB Khalil Herbert — Under 32.5 rush yards (-110)

Tej Seth: Bears QB Justin Fields — Under 0.5 pass TDs (+126)

• Because of poor play and the lack of high-end receiving options, Justin Fields not only entered Week 7 with the highest rate of passes deemed uncatchable by PFF (29%), he has the 2nd-lowest EPA per pass against man coverage this season. The Patriots play man coverage on 52.1% of all passing plays, the second-highest rate in the NFL. This is an advantageous matchup for them, as they’ll frequently play man coverage, where the Bears offense has struggled this season.

Arjun Menon: Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers — Over 4.5 receptions (-105; playable to -110)


PFF staff best bets are 64-46 entering MNF in Week 7.
