Chicago Bears NFL Betting

The Chicago Bears have a quarterback controversy on their hands, but it’s one that was expected ever since Mitchell Trubisky was named the starter at the beginning of the season. After struggling for large portions of Chicago’s first two games and through the first half of Week 3’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, Trubisky was benched in favor of former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles. Foles brought the Bears back from a 16-point fourth quarter deficit to move to 3-0, and he will likely be the quarterback this week against the Indianapolis Colts.

Chicago Bears Week 4 Matchup

Although the Bears are undefeated and playing at home, they are a field goal underdog per the NFL betting odds against the Colts. Chicago needed 20+ fourth quarter points to beat both Detroit and Atlanta, and the Bears nearly lost to the winless New York Giants at home in Week 2, leaving oddsmakers underwhelmed with their performance.

Indianapolis is 2-1 coming into this game. The Colts suffered a somewhat fluky loss to Jacksonville in Week 1, and they have responded with impressive victories in their last two outings.

Philip Rivers has made a few mistakes, but he has been largely efficient through three games. He has completed 78.3 percent of his passes for 8.6 YPA, and he just surpassed 60,000 passing yards for his career last week. Rivers has used tight end Mo Alie-Cox as a big play threat (18.1 YPC) alongside T.Y. Hilton, and he is taking advantage of two running backs that can succeed in the passing game in Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Taylor.

Taylor has been asked to take over the duties as the No. 1 running back with Marlon Mack sidelined for the year with an injury, and the rookie has done a decent job. He is averaging 3.8 YPC, and he has yet to turn the ball over. That’s good news considering his fumbling problems at Wisconsin.

This offensive line is the best in the NFL and will be more than a handful for Chicago’s front on Sunday. Indianapolis has only allowed Rivers to be sacked twice this year, as the left side of this line is ridiculous. Quenton Nelson and Ryan Kelly are arguably the best at their positions, and Anthony Castonzo has been a very good left tackle for a long time.

Chicago’s defense hasn’t been as good as expected this year. Although Khalil Mack has played well, many of the other former Pro Bowlers have struggled. This team is allowing 5.0 YPC, but the pass defense has been much better, ranking fifth in the NFL.

On offense, the Bears are going to have to go the rest of the season without explosive running back Tarik Cohen. Cohen tore his ACL against Atlanta, depriving Chicago of its second-best weapon behind Allen Robinson II. That will lead to an even bigger role in the offense for David Montgomery with increased reps for Cordarrelle Patterson too.

Chicago Bears Week 3 Recap

Foles’ first drive against Atlanta ended up the same way as Trubisky’s last drive. The veteran threw a pick into the end zone, but head coach Matt Nagy wasn’t going to pull Foles after one mistake (especially since the officials initially ruled that Robinson had caught the ball).

In the fourth quarter, Foles caught fire. He led the Bears on three consecutive touchdown drives, and he finished the game with better numbers than Trubisky. It took some time for him to get going, but he eventually found Robinson, Jimmy Graham, and Anthony Miller often.

Chicago did a good job stopping Matt Ryan through the air. The Bears’ job was made easier as Julio Jones was out, but they held Ryan to a 50 percent completion rate and forced an interception to seal the game late. However, the run defense continues to be an issue. Todd Gurley II and Brian Hill combined to carry the ball 23 times for 158 yards and two touchdowns, which won’t lead to many wins. Cairo Santos missed a field goal for the second straight week too, so that’s a worry for a franchise that has had trouble with kickers.
