New England Patriots vs. Chicago Bears NFL Football Betting Picks
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
The New England Patriots absolutely shocked the nation this past weekend by defeating the Kansas City Chiefs. Although most sportsbooks had the Pats pegged as the NFL football betting favorites, it was still surprising to see them come out on top 43-40. Now the Pats are ready to face their next challenge on the road in this Sunday’s New England Patriots vs. Chicago Bears matchup. Ultimately the big question is how Belichick and Brady will handle Khalil Mack – arguably the strongest defensive force in the NFL. Let’s take a look at the odds to see what the bookmakers are anticipating.

New England Patriots
The Pats charge into this weekend’s action sporting a respectable 4-2 record that pegs them as the top dog in the AFC East. Right now New England shares a 4-2 record with the Miami Dolphins. Although the pats’ Week 4 win over Miami assures they get the lead, the Pats need to keep on winning in order to create some separation between them and Miami. The Dolphins are coming off a 31-28 win over the Bears, putting more pressure on New England to get the victory this Sunday. All in all the Bears have looked like a competent football team this season. Defensively they have the best player in the league in Mack and their offense has been making gradual improvements each week. New England’s defense on the other hand, is coming off a game in which they gave up 40 points so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of effort they put forth this Sunday.
Players to Watch: Tom Brady (1,599 passing yards, 13 TD, 6 INT), Sony Michel (400 rushing yards, 4 TD, 0 F), and Rob Gronkowski (405 receiving yards, 1 TD, 1 F).
The Bears pounce into this weekend’s action sporting a 3-2 record that pegs them as the top dog in the NFC North. This division was supposed to be very tough this season but it appears that all 4 teams are having a tough time getting some traction. For most of the season, the Bears have looked like the most competent team in the division. However, this past weekend’s 31-28 loss to Miami begs to differ. Obviously a win over the Pats this weekend would be massive for Chicago but it just doesn’t seem like it’ll be able to come to fruition. Albeit, the numbers don’t paint such a frantic picture for the Bears. Right now Chicago gives up 19.2 points per game, much better than the 24.7 average that New England sports. Offensively the Pats have the advantage since they’re scoring 29.3 to Chicago’s 27.8. If Trubisky is able to score on the Pats’ shoddy defense, this matchup might end up being more entertaining than anticipated.
Players to Watch: Mitchell Trubisky (1,261 passing yards, 11 TD, 4 INT), Jordan Howard (272 rushing yards, 1 TD, 1 F), and Taylor Gabriel (303 receiving yards, 2 TD, 27 REC).
