The best offer I know of for CSP is 40,000 points ($400 cash or potentially more with travel).
Your odds for a Freedom are probably pretty good.
To get a CSP, Chase might like to see one existing CL around $5k. The lack of that is sometimes cited as a reason for people being declined. It is not mandatory, though, and with a high enough income you can get around that. Like many credit cards, the CSP requirements probably have weakened a little over time.
Some people have also reported that it is best to open the Freedom first, before the CSP. Exactly how long to wait between cards, I'm not sure. Applying for both at once sometimes results in an approved Freedom and declined CSP.
Of course, this is just based on anecdotes, so YMMV.
