Why Bet the Chicago Bears Spread at +9

Why should you be considering betting on the Chicago Bears? Defense!

The Bears have held three of their last five opponents to 17 points or less.

Chicago has won two straight even though I think you’ve got to take those wins in context. The Bears beat an awful Baltimore team 27-24 in overtime two weeks ago by running the ball with Jordon Howard who carried the ball 36 times for 167 yards.

Last weekend Chicago beat Carolina last weekend 17-3 thanks to no small part due to rookie safety Eddie Jackson’s two pick-sixes of 75+ yards. However, it should be noted that Mitch Trubisky completed a grand total of four passes in just seven attempts and that Chicago rushed for 68 yards in the ‘strange’ victory.

Why Bet the New Orleans Saints Spread at -9

New Orleans is a smart bet over the Bears because their defense has finally matched the awesomeness of the Drew Brees-led offense. The Saints haven’t allowed more than 17 points in three of their last four games. That is a big step considering there are only handful of teams in recent memory that can hold Brees to 17-points.

New Orleans is looking good as they shoot for their fifth straight victory after getting past Green Bay 26-17 last weekend. Drew Brees passed for 331yards with one touchdown and an atypical two interceptions in the win while Mark Ingram added 105 rushing yards and one score in the win. New Orleans won the time of possession battle by over 13 minutes and limited backup quarterback Brett Hundley to just 87 passing yards while picking off the former UCLA signal-caller once.

Bears Vs Saints NFL Week 8 ATS Pick

The Bears may have won two straight, but again, they didn’t exactly go out and beat a pair of Super Bowl contenders in getting past pitiful Baltimore while cam Newton ‘gifted’ them last week’s win. The New Orleans Saints are the easy pick here because they have too much offensive firepower and now, a defense that is playing better than it has in years. While the Bears have gone 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in the month of October, the Saints are an incendiary 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games in October, a bankroll-boosting 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games against their NFC rivals and 3-0-1 ATS in their last four meetings against Chicago. New Orleans wins by double digits to cover the chalk!
