Ridiculously Early Point Spreads: Bears Favored in 11 Games

Covers.com has posted point spreads for the first 16 weeks of the 2012 NFL season. Why not all 17 weeks, you ask? Well, because as Covers put it, ” Week 17 lines are still unavailable because of the uncertainty surrounding which starters will actually suit up for the final week of the regular season.”

Huh? They don’t even know who will start in Week 1 and that didn’t deter them from posting spreads through Week 16 but because players might be rested in Week 17 you can’t posts those spreads? For all we know, Aaron Rogers could slip on a wedge of cheese and miss a month with a strained hammy.

Anyway, the Bears are favored in 11 of the 15 games for which Covers provides spreads. Hit the jump for a breakdown of all the ridiculously early point spreads.

Week 1

Week 10

Week 11

Week 12

Week 13
Seahawks @ Bears (-5.5)

Week 14
Bears (-2.5) @ Vikings

Week 15
Packers (-3) @ Bears

Week 16
Bears (-1) @ Cardinals

The Bears are dogs in 4 games – the pair against the hated Packers and the games at San Francisco and Dallas.  Week 17 is at Detroit and I expect the Bears to be underdogs in that one too. If they can win the games they’re projected to be favored, the playoffs should be well within reach.

I’ll leave it to our handicapping expert Bart educate you all on the nuances of better week to week, but if you just can’t wait to get some action, you can bet up to $2000 on each game.  Don’t go spending your entire season allowance just yet.
