The Chicago Bears and Matt Nagy are in very familiar territory. They find themselves 0-1 to start the season for now the third time in Matt Nagy’s four-year tenure. Last season was the only season the Chicago Bears have won the season-opener under Nagy’s regime. This is good news though seeing that they came away with a 12-4 season in 2018 and an 8-8 season in 2019.

What is important though, is that the Bears find a way to beat the Bengals. Just as the team has not fared well in the season opener, the opposite is true with the second game of the season. Matt Nagy has never started the season with an 0-2 record. The Chicago Bears cannot afford to go that far into the hole if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.

This team needs to make a few changes if they want to find a way to win. Winning this game is important. If the Chicago Bears drop to 0-2 on the season, their chances of making the playoffs drop drastically to only 12 percent. These are not good odds at all.

Bears Injury Report vs Rams Week 1

Larry Borom was placed on short-term injured reserve today. This means he will miss at least three games. The injury is a high ankle sprain and it’s tough to see seeing how well Borom has been playing as a fifth-round rookie. Hopefully, the Chicago Bears will get Jason Peters back from his quad injury. Elijah Wilkinson starting at left tackle will be a disaster.

Also on the injury report is Eddie Goldman again. He missed last week’s game due to the same injury. Goldman was a limited participant on Wednesday but then did not practice on Thursday and Friday. He is listed as doubtful and if I had to guess, his arrow is pointing down, way down. This is a shot at Matt Nagy for those who don’t understand.

Other notables on the injury report for the Bears are Jason Peters (quad), who practiced all week as a limited participant and is questionable, and Robert Quinn (back), who was a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday. Quinn was a full participant on Friday and is also questionable.

The Bengals will be without Ricardo (S) Allen and Trae Waynes (CB). The team also has two players who are questionable — Markus Bailey (LB) and Darius Phillips (CB).

Bears vs Rams Odds, Spread, Over/Under, & Betting Pick Week 2

WynnBET’s Week 2 NFL odds have the Bears as favorites at home. Well, technically the game was essentially a pick-em game to start the week, but the spread has shifted from the Bears as a -3.0 favorite to a -2.0 favorite. As most home teams get a three-point bump in the spread, this is technically favoring the Bengals to win.

The Moneyline has moved some too. The Chicago Bears went from -150 to -130. (bet $130 to win $100). The Bengals are now sitting at +110 after being at +130 (bet $200 to win $130) just a few days ago. The over/under on the game is set 44.5 — 0.5 points less than it was originally to start the week.

Originally I had the Bengals winning this game 28-20, but that also involved the emotions of the horrific loss to the Rams last week. This game looks to be a toss-up and I just cannot find myself trusting Matt Nagy enough to feel confident in a win.

I think Chicago does find a way to win this week, but it will be close. I’m thinking the Bears win 24-21 now, meaning it barely hits the over. Honestly, unless you feel confident one way or the other, this is probably a game to stay away from this week.
