After dropping two in a row, the Bears were able to get back on the right side of the scoreboard last week with a win over the Jets. They didn’t blow the Jets out of the water, but they were never really in danger of losing the game.
Buffalo, on the other hand, is in danger of getting blown out every time they step on the field. While the score last week against the Patriots was a bit lopsided, the score was just 12-6, Patriots, after three. The Patriots only scored one offensive touchdown on the day and not until the fourth quarter.
The Bills are sneaky. Going into games against them, expectations are low and with good reason. But they did beat two good teams (Vikings and Titans), nearly beat another (Texans), and gave the Patriots a run for their money.
Then again, they also got dominated by the Indianapolis Colts.
So—who’s going to win?
The easy thing to do would be to say the Bears will win and move on. But will they? The Bills are a decent defensive team. The offence needs a ton of help. But maybe if the Bears are without Khalil Mack again, that will be enough?
Not likely. Derek Anderson is not terrible, but it has been a long time since he’s played well. With the offensive line that the Bills have, Anderson is not going to have the time he needs. Running lanes are going to be non-existent as well.
Take the Bears (-550) to win over the Bills (+400) and cover the spread (10). As for the over/under—take the under.
