Why Bet on Chicago Bears?
Despite the little favoritism for the game, the Chicago Bears will start the NFL season playing at home after 3 years. This is perhaps the main reason to bet on the Bears, as they had one of the worst statistics of last season and lost their last head-to-head against the 49ers in October, last year (33-22).
They are rebuilding, largely because of their bad season. Few players stood out and even those who have the potential to stand out were unable to make a difference in the face of such a fragile team – this is the case with Justin Fields.
Linebacker Roquan Smith, cornerback Jason Johnson, and wide receiver Darnell Mooney are the team’s biggest talents and all the pressure from the fans is on them in this upcoming season. To beat the 49ers, these top talents need to be on a big day and the entire team needs to be at its maximum level.
Why Bet on the San Francisco 49ers?
All major bookmakers point to the 49ers’ great favoritism, even playing far from their domains. Last season, although not the best, left good memories in the minds of fans, who were frustrated – and happy – at having almost beaten the Rams in the NFC Championship.
The San Francisco 49ers beat the Bears last season, 33-22; a result that seemed difficult at first but quickly resolved itself after some flaws in the Bears’ defense.
The expectation is for an even better start to the season this year, with the permanence of the important players who took the team to the playoffs last season. Coach Kyle Shananan will once again bet on John Lynch and Trey Lance, in addition to other great players, to make an unforgettable season.
Final Betting Analysis: Bears vs. 49ers
Playing at home shouldn’t be enough for the Bears to beat the strong team from San Francisco. The last season of the visiting team and the last confrontation between them show the great superiority of the 49ers.
Our best pick is the 49ers to win.
