How To Win At Chicago Bears Betting
The Bears have for the most part been part of high-scoring games in recent seasons so bet the over if at all possible. This was due to the fact they had an exciting and capable attack paired with a leaky defense.
However, that is no longer the case. The 2015 season showed us that the offense is no longer capable of putting up high numbers, especially as the squad was plagued by injuries.
The 2015 regular season saw the Bears finish 11th in Rushing yards, finishing on 1,854 or just a hair under 116 yards per game.
Their passing was much worse, ranked 23rd with 228.8 yards and 21st in total yards with 344.6. This is a very poor showing for a team that was once known for a great offensive game. It was a big part of the reason they finished in fourth place in NFC North.
You may assume unders is the bet then, but you would be wrong. Their defense is still poor and they usually concede enough to make the under a no-go.
On the defensive side of things they were 22nd in the league in rushing yards allowed (120.9 yards per game). A silver lining, though, the Bears were 4th in pass defense, only allowing 224.6 yards each encounter.
The bears allowed 345.4 yards per game, which was good for 14th place. Unfortunately, the Bears bled points more frequently, allowing 24.8 each game which put them in 20th place in the league.
Quarterback Jay Cutler played quite well in 2015 and we can expect him to continue improving.
Cutler threw for 21 touchdowns, 11 interceptions and 3,659 yards in 2015. He was able to narrowly edgedinto the top 20 QB for the season. The Bears will need Cutler to play even better if they expect to compete each and every game with the more fancied teams in the division.
The bears have no realistic chance at making a run in 2016. My advice is to hold out early, watch some games, take note of how well they’re scoring and plan accordingly.
