The Chicago Bears have not looked good the last two weeks and the offense has looked horrendous most of the season. Matt Nagy’s offense has not been working, while Justin Fields continues to struggle. He is not getting much help though with his receivers dropping the ball and no one being able to pass block. You cannot count on them to be successful.

The 49ers are bouncing back and forth with their quarterbacks as they continue to both deal with injuries. This week it sounds like Jimmy Garroppolo will be back under center, but if Trey Lance is healthy it is possible we see both of them play since the 49ers were using both quarterbacks prior to the injuries.

Bears vs 49ers Odds Week 8

The Week 8 betting odds on WynnBET have the Bears as +3.5 underdogs at home. This is a slap in the face but definitely warranted. The Chicago Bears are last in so many passing categories despite being a top-10 rushing team. The downfall in the passing game is a problem though because the Bears cannot seem to score points.

Chicago is third-worst in the NFL with an average of fewer than 15 points per game. The defense has held up for the most part, but the defense cannot win games on their own. Last week was a bit of a fluke in regards to the points allowed, but with five turnovers, Tampa Bay had plenty of short fields to work with.

WynnBET set the Bears Moneyline at +145 (Bet $100 to win $145) and the over/under at 39.5. The money earned from the Moneyline is not much and therefore not one I’d consider betting. San Francisco is averaging 22.5 points per game and therefore, until Chicago proves themselves, the under looks like the better option here. I’d wait to bet the over/under until I saw who will be available for Chicago and who will be out due to either injury or COVID-19.

Bears vs 49ers Prediction Week 8

Too often I have been using my heart when it comes to these predictions. I had Tampa Bay winning last week, but I thought Chicago would be able to cover the +12.0 spread. Until Matt Nagy is no longer involved with this offense, we cannot expect much from a scoring perspective.

The Bears are 3-4 on the year with legit wins over the Bengals and the Raiders, but they have looked horrible in many games too. San Francisco is 12th overall in defensive DVOA, while specifically 14th vs the pass and 15th vs the run. Chicago will need to win by running the football and that should not be a problem, but will it be enough? Don’t let the 49ers’ record fool you. They have played better in their losses than the Bears have overall.
