Here we go. The Chicago Bears will be facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today. Fans will hope to see a repeat of the outcome from last season when Tom Brady took so many hits that he forgot what down they were on late in the game. The Bears found a way to come away with a 20-19 victory. Brady was sacked three times that game, but took multiple shots after throwing the ball.

The Bucs got the last laugh though as they went on to win the Super Bowl. Maybe this time the Bears will flip the script and win the Super Bowl? Ha! I know. What a joke, right? Well, they will need to prove themselves in this one and hope to build off this game to hopefully win their next few.

Bears Injury Report vs Bucs Week 7

The Chicago Bears have a few key players who will not be playing this week versus the Bucs. If this test wasn’t hard enough, now it will be even tougher. Akiem Hicks is out with a groin injury and Robert Quinn was not cleared after testing positive for COVID-19. Tashaun Gipson is also out with a hip injury.

These other players are questionable and likely to play. The list includes:

  • Jakeem Grant (ankle)
  • Khalil Mack (foot)
  • Allen Robinson (ankle)
  • Caleb Johnson (knee)
  • Duke Shelley (ankle)
  • J.P. Holtz (quad)
  • Bilal Nichols (knee)

The Bucs are not without injuries though. Antonio Brown is out with an ankle injury, which is a big blow to the Bucs’ offense. Rob Gronkowski remains out too with a rib injury. Richard Sherman (hamstring) and Lavonte David (ankle) are also out on the defensive side of the ball.

Bears vs Bucs Odds, Spread, Over/Under, & Betting Pick Week 7

WynnBET’s Week 7 NFL odds have the Bears as the third biggest underdogs of the week at +12.0. That’s a big margin for a team that has the seventh-best defense in the NFL according to Defensive DVOA. Chicago is also only eighth in the NFL in points allowed, but the Bucs are third in points scored. This is clearly a tough matchup, but I have a feeling Chicago finds a way to keep it within 12 points and cover the spread.

That said, I would definitely not bet the Moneyline confidently as I believe Tom Brady and Tampa Bay get revenge for their loss to the Bears last season. WynnBET has the Moneyline set at +500 odds (bet $100 to win $500). The Bucs Moneyline is set at -$700 (bet $700 to win $100) and that’s not worth touching if you want to win a decent amount of money.

The over/under is set at 47.0 and I would think they believe most of that goes to the Bucs. The Bucs are averaging 32.5 points per game and Chicago is 30th in the league with an average of 16.3 points per game. If they hit their averages then they will just break the over. That said, I’m leaning the under in this one as I think Chicago keeps the Bucs to just under 30 points.

Bears Next Game and Schedule

This is not going to be easy to overcome. The Chicago Bears have a very tough schedule ahead of them and I just do not see how they achieve more than eight wins this season. They will need to beat the 49ers next week to have any shot at the playoffs after most likely losing to the Bucs today.

Here’s a look at their schedule for the next four weeks:

Week 8: vs 49ers
Week 9: @ Steelers
Week 10: BYE
Week 11: vs Baltimore
