Chicago Bears vs New England Patriots – NFL Prediction and Betting Tips
- Updated: 21st October 2018
Chicago Bears vs New England Patriots – NFL : The best value in terms of spread I’ve found for this NFL round of matches this weekend.
The New England Patriots have been the team to beat in the NFL for a long time.
However, in 2018, similarly to what happened in other years where they’ve won the title, they got off to a bad start, with 2 losses in the first 3 weeks, but then they reacted, and they are coming off 3 consecutive victories, over the Miami Dolphins, the Indianapolis Colts and the Kansas City Chiefs.
It is no secret that the team led by the head coach Bill Belichick and by the QB Tom Brady is the most solid team in the league and therefore, theoretically they will be favourites in all the matches they play throughout the year.
It is up to us, gamblers, to find the games where the spread offers us the best value. And in my opinion, this game in Chicago against the Bears is one of those opportunities.
Chicago is coming off a loss by 31-28 in overtime against the Miami Dolphins on the road.
The Dolphins’ QB was Brock Osweiler and not Ryan Tannehill. Even with a good defence, the Bears were surprised by the former Broncos and Texans QB and they ended up losing a game where they were favoured by 7 points.
The Patriots have faced that same Dolphins team and they’ve won by 38-07. However, I should point out that Miami’s QB was Tannehill (that would hurt himself on the following game, against the Bengals).
Which means, the Bears’ defence was unable to sustain the Dolphins’ attack with the reserve QB, while the Patriots’ defence limited Miami’s attack to only 7 points with their starting QB
Injury Report: On the side of the Bears, the DE Khalil Mack, the DB Bryce Callahan and the WR Allen Robinson are listed as doubtful and they were limited on practice during the week, but they should be available to play.
In New England, the RT Marcus Cannon doesn’t play and the TE Rob Gronkowski is listed as doubtful, but, similarly to the Bears’ players, he should play.
Chicago Bears vs New England Patriots – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Patriots have a more complete team than the Bears, period. The Bears are coming off a loss that can lower the team’s momentum, and the Patriots are in a good moment of form, even more after beating the Chiefs of “Showtime” Patrick Mahomes on Sunday Night Football.
