The Bears average 247.9 passing yards per game (18th). Rumors are that QB Jay Cutler (807 yards, 3 TDs & 4 INTs) had a bad game in Tampa Bay last week. Cutler completed only 16 of 30 passes for 182 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. With WR Alshon Jeffery (40 rec, 630 yards, 1 TD) suspended for four games, WR Cameron Meredith (29 rec, 381 yards, 2 TDs) is expected to become the number one target in the passing game. Chicago averages 99.4 rushing yards per game (21st). RB Jordan Howard (114 car, 605 yards, 2 TDs) is averaging 5.3 yards per carry.
Chicago has he 10th total defense in the NFL. They give up 243.0 passing yards per game (12th) and 98.4 rushing yards (11th). They have recorded 24 sacks this season (8th).
Why Bet The NY Giants To Beat The Bears
The Giants beat the Cincinnati Bengals 21-20 on Monday Night Football to earn their four straight wins. They are 6-3 SU and 4-3-2 ATS this season. New York averages 20.2 points per game (24th) and allows 20.4 points per game (11th).
New York averages 266.9 passing yards per game (9th). QB Eli Manning (2481 yards, 15 TDs & 10 INTs) has been irregular all season. Manning completed 28 of 44 passes for 240 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions against the Bengals. WR Odell Beckham Jr (54 rec, 773 yards, 6 TDs) is keeping his schedule clear for the first week of February.
"We’re really looking forward to Feb. 5 in Houston," Beckham said to ESPN this week. "That’s the goal, obviously. I feel real confident in this team. This defense is a Super Bowl defense. The offense, we’re working to get better each and every day."
Part of the problem is the Giants are one of the worst team in the NFL rushing the football. They average 74.2 rushing yards per game (31st). RB Rashad Jennings (79 car, 255 yards, 1 TDs) is averaging only 3.2 yards per carry. However, Jennings showed flashes last week as he rushed 15 times for 87 yards (5.8 yards per carry) in a win over Cincinnati.
The Giants have the 14th-ranked total defense in the NFL. They allow 267.0 passing yards per game (22nd) and 92.1 rushing yards per game (7th). The team has only 14 sacks this season (30th).
“We have new pieces on defense that are still kind of figuring out our identity,” starting linebacker and defensive captain Jonathan Casillas said. “I think it’s being established a little more, little more. We want to be a bully team. I don’t think we’re there yet, but I think we’re getting there.”
