It’s not too late for the Chicago Bears (+8000 to win Super Bowl 54) to catch up on the leaders of the NFC North, but they have to act fast. They can start by winning their matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles (+3000), who are looking to regain the leadership in the NFC East.
Betting Preview for the Chicago Bears vs Philadelphia Eagles NFL Regular Season Week 9 Game on November 3, 2019
Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia
When: Sunday, November 3, 2019, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NBC
Betting on the Chicago Bears (3-4)
The Bears can’t turn back the hands of time and draft another quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft, so they will just have to live with Mitchell Trubisky under center for now. Trubisky had another underwhelming performance in Week 8, passing for just 253 yards with zero touchdowns, and an interception while completing just 23 of 35 passes in their 17-16 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers at home. The bottom line for the Bears is that Trubisky has to be better. The defense will always keep Chicago in the thick of things, but at the end of the day, the Bears need to put up points on the board to win. Rookie running back David Montgomery offers much hope for the Bears’ offense after burning rubber for a career-high 135 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries. Trey Burton has to step up also. He only had a catch on four targets for 16 yards in the loss to the Chargers. He’s a big-money asset the Bears can’t just afford to get nothing from.
The Bears are 3-3 straight up (SU) in their last three road games.
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (4-4)
The Eagles showed signs of life in Week 8, as they snapped a two-game skid in dominant fashion, beating the Buffalo Bills on the road, 31-13. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz passed for 172 yards and a touchdown on 17-of-24 completions, and while those numbers don’t exactly jump out of the stat sheet, it’s fair to say that the Eagles will have the much better quarterback when they show up on the field against the Bears. Wentz could also be getting one of his weapons back, as wide receiver DeSean Jackson is reportedly practicing this week. Jackson hasn’t played since Week 2 due to an abdominal injury, and his return should boost the Eagles’ passing attack that’s averaging just 218.8 yards per game. Philly sacked Allen four times, a performance by the team’s pass rush that should serve as a warning to Chicago’s offensive line that allowed four quarterback takedowns in Week 8.
The over is 3-1 in the Eagles’ last four games at home.
The Eagles win, 24-23.
