Cowboys Vs Bears
by Tim Wilkinson
NFL Betting Odds: The Dallas Cowboys are road favorites at the Chicago Bears on Thursday in a game that can be seen on NFL Network. It is a game that the Dallas Cowboys can’t afford to lose as they are a game behind the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East. They shouldn’t have much trouble against a Chicago Bears team that is out of playoff contention. Both teams played on Thanksgiving so each team has had a full week to get ready for this contest.
Here is a look at the game and NFL predictions.
NFL Betting Odds
Dallas Cowboys -3.5, total 50.5
Dallas Cowboys 8-4 SU, 6-6 ATS
The Dallas Cowboys are coming off a bad loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last week so they need a big bounce back against the Chicago Bears in this game on Thursday. Head coach Jason Garrett said that the team has to put the loss behind them. “This is what I know: If we do what we are supposed to, plan to do and want to do then good things are going to happen for our football team,” Garrett said. “The way you do that is you focus on today and you focus on your preparation for one game.” The team has to avoid looking ahead to their rematch next week against the Eagles. “We got to get focused on beating Chicago.”
Chicago Bears 5-7 SU, 5-7 ATS
The Chicago Bears were blow out last week in Detroit and now they have no real chance to make the playoffs. The team isn’t very good on offense as they are averaging only 21 points per game and they are terrible on defense as they are allowing 28 points per game. The team is 2-3 ATS in their five home games this season. They have gone under the total in four of their five home contests.
These teams have split their last ten meetings both straight up and against the spread. The last four games have gone over the NFL betting odds total. They have met in each of the past two seasons with the Chicago Bears winning both games. They won 34-18 in Dallas and 45-28 at home. The Bears have won three of the past four at home with the last two going over.
It is hard to make much of a case for the Chicago Bears based on how they are playing so I will lay the points and take the Dallas Cowboys in this one.
