NFL Chicago Bears Betting Odds & Predictions
Chicago Bears Season Preview / 2017 NFL Chicago Bears Football Odds
The Chicago Bears have become accustomed to playing with a long list of injured players. So when they take the field Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a Week 2 matchup, they won’t be overwhelmed with two more starters out of lineup and on injured reserve following Sunday’s near-miss against the defending NFC champion Falcons.
Teams play 60 minutes with each running upwards of 70 plays, but the difference between winning and losing comes down to just a few. The Bears failed to make the plays that counted and suffered another home loss. Trailing by three points early in the fourth quarter, a busted coverage in the secondary allowed an 88-yard catch-and-run to Dustin Hooper. Then, trailing by six points late in the fourth quarter, the Bears had the football on the Falcons 5-yard line. Three incomplete passes and a fourth-down sack sealed Chicago’s loss.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, the Bears lost receiver Kevin White and linebacker Jerrell Freeman to potential season-ending injuries. White’s loss is particularly painful since the Bears were already thin at the position after Cam Meredith went down in the preseason. There were some bright spots, including the play of rookie Tarik Cohen, who ran for 66 yards, totaled 47 yards on eight receptions and added 45 yards on punt returns for 158 all-purpose yards.

The Bears covered the 6.5-point spread, but they came oh so close to upsetting the NFC champs. It would have been a huge victory for John Fox and his club, who are projected to finish near the bottom of the standings. And the reason is they can’t pull out the close games. Chicago played on even terms for much of the day, but that long touchdown play proved critical. Take that off Matt Ryan’s stat sheet and he has just 233 passing yards.
Pre Season Chicago Bears Game Results
Preseason Record: 2-2
ATS Record: 2-2
Over/Under Total Record: 2-2
We don’t normally talk about trap games for a season opener, but this would be one if the discussion ever came up. The Falcons are a favorite to win the NFC after they demolished the competition last year and the Bears have won a total of 14 games in the past three years. Chicago looks to be vastly improved and could give Atlanta a battle. But the Bears have struggled at home during their three-year skid, going 6-18 SU and 10-14 ATS in that span.
