The Chicago Bears (+6000 to win the NFC) and the Los Angeles Rams (+2000 to win the NFC) can’t afford to lose more games, as they are getting left behind in their respective conference’s title races. The two will duke it out in a Sunday Night Football game that’s as intriguing as it is important for each of them.
Betting Preview for the Chicago Bears vs Los Angeles Rams NFL Regular Season Week 11 Game on November 17, 2019
Where: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles
When: Sunday, November 17, 2019, 8:20 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NBC
Betting on the Chicago Bears (4-5)
The Bears stopped the bleeding by ending a four-game losing skid with a 20-13 win over the Matthew Stafford-less Detroit Lions last weekend, 20-13. A win is a win for the Bears, and it must have been refreshing for them to see Mitchell Trubisky play with significantly more efficiency than in his other previous performances, as he tossed for 173 passing yards and three touchdowns on 16-of-23 completions. It would take more than one of such outing for Trubisky to convince people that he’s a steady play under center for the Bears, who are only 27th in the league with just 18.0 points per game. If anything else, the Bears’ defense will have to carry the bulk of the load against the Rams to keep the game as manageable as possible for Trubisky on the other end of the ball. The Bears are fourth in the NFL overall with 17.4 points allowed per game and ninth with just 327.3 total yards surrendered per contest.
The Bears are 5-5 against the spread (ATS) in their last ten road games.
Betting on the Los Angeles Rams (5-4)
After back-to-back wins over non-playoff contenders in the Atlanta Falcons and the Cincinnati Bengals, the Rams were sent back down to Earth in a 17-12 road loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Rams struggled to move the ball downfield against Pittsburgh, which was just fair considering the resurgent defense of the Steelers. However, they are about to face the Bears’ stouter defense. The Rams went touchdown-less in the loss to Pittsburgh, with Jared Goff getting picked off twice. Reynolds will be minus at least one downfield weapon on Sunday, as Brandin Cooks has been declared out for Week 11 due to concussion. Cooks also missed the Steelers game, forcing Josh Reynolds to move up the pecking order in the team’s passing attack. Reynolds had 49 receiving yards on three receptions and five targets in that game.
The Rams, who are averaging 25.1 points per game, are 4-2 ATS in their last six contests at home.
The Rams win, 23-17.
