Bears vs. Eagles, 11/3/19 NFL Week 9 Betting Predictions

The Eagles were a 5-point home favorite to beat the Bears but are laying just four points ahead of the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff on Sunday. Is four points still too much to lay on the 4-4 Eagles?

Chicago Bears Fantasy Spin

Bears coach Matt Nagy said Mitchell Trubisky will start in Week 9 against the Eagles. Nagy continued that there's still enough time left in the season to get Trubisky "playing at the level he needs to play at." Chicago's No. 2 overall pick in '17, Trubisky's bottomed out in just his third year with the Bears, pacing for 2,730 yards, 12 touchdowns and 7.5 picks over 15 starts — a step back across the board following his impressive 3,223-yard campaign last season. Having said that, it makes sense for the organization to keep him under center (as much as it may hurt) the rest of the way since sliding 33-year-old veteran Chase Daniel in is a sunk cost for the 3-4 Bears. Trubisky's next test comes against the Eagles' swarming pass rush in Week 9.

Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Spin

Miles Sanders (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Eagles' final injury report. The second-round rookie posted 3-74-1 rushing and 3-44-0 receiving lines on just 13 snaps before departing last week. The rookie has been nothing short of remarkable as a receiver this season. Overall, Sanders (2.63 yards per route run) joins Austin Ekeler (2.63), Aaron Jones (2.38), James White (2.16), Chris Thompson (2.09) and Dalvin Cook (2.01) as the league's only RBs to average at least two yards per route run after eight weeks (PFF, minimum 15 targets). Still, the return of Darren Sproles (quad) could again result in this backfield turning into a three-headed committee.


The Bears are 13-5 against the spread in their last 18 conference games but have failed to cover the number in six of their last eight games overall.


The Eagles are just 3-7 at the betting window in their last 10 home games and are 1-5 against the spread in their last six conference matchups.

NFL Week 9 Prediction

This line feels inflated based off last week’s results. While the Bears blew a potential win by missing a field goal in the closing seconds, the Eagles blew out the Bills in one of the more impressive victories in Week 8. That said, Chicago largely dominated the Chargers based on total yardage and first downs, but because of a crucial Trubisky fumble that set up an L.A. score in the second half, as well as Eddie Pinero’s missed field goal, the Bears lost. All the media could talk about this week was Matt Nagy’s poor game management in the closing minutes and another shaky performance by Trubisky. That only creates more value for bettors in my eyes. The underdog is 10-4 against the spread in the last 14 meetings between these two teams.
