Should You Bet On The Patriots?
The New England Patriots are winless on the road in 2018. But both road losses were without Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman. Over the last three weeks, the Pats have steamrolled opponents. All three were home games and New England put up 38+ points in each.
Now the Pats have to prove that they can win on the road and Soldier Field is the ultimate test. Tom Brady has all his weapons and they are healthy for the most part. The only question that remains is can the Patriots cover the 3-point spread as road favorites?
Brady is 4-0 lifetime versus the Bears. The last two victories were blowouts. In 2010 the Patriots won 36-7 and in 2014 the scoreboard lit up 51-23.
Should You Bet On Da Bears?
The Chicago Bears defense just got embarrassed. The 3-point OT loss to the Dolphins is one thing, but it was the way they lost. Backup Miami QB Brock Osweiler threw for 380 yards & 3 TDs and the ageless wonder Frank Gore rushed for 101 yards.
The Bears did have three turnovers. But that won’t be enough to sooth the beat down. Khalil Mack and company will be out to make a statement in this game.
If the Bears are serious about beating the Patriots, they will need more than defense to do so. In matchups to open the season against Green Bay, Seattle, and Arizona, sophomore QB Mitch Trubisky still showed his rookie season growing pains. However, over the past two weeks, Trubisky has completed 41 of 57 passes for 670 yards and nine touchdowns with one interception. He has also rushed for 100 yards on 11 carries during that span.
A win over Bill Belichick’s Patriots will prove that 24-year old Trubisky is Da Bears franchise QB. The Patriots are 57-18 under Belichick on the road when they face a QB 25 years or younger.
