Bears vs. Eagles Total Pick
Will Sunday's meeting between the Chicago Bears and Eagles in Philadelphia turn into a high-scoring affair for bettors? Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. ET.
Matchup: Bears (3-7) at Eagles (9-1)
TV: FOX, 1:00 p.m. ET
Line: Eagles -13.5
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under currently sits at 44 points after also hitting the board at that same number. The Eagles, meanwhile, are now 13.5-point home favorites versus the Bears after opening as a 13-point favorite.
PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, the Eagles are receiving 65% of the tickets at the betting window.
KEY TRENDS: The Bears are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games but are 7-2-1 against the number in their last 10 games versus an opponent with a winning record. The Eagles, meanwhile, are 7-0 against the spread in their last seven games overall and have covered in four straight home games.
OUR PREDICTION: The over is 4-1 in the Bears' last five games in November and a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams regardless of where the game is played. The over is also 9-1 in the Eagles' last 10 games played in Week 12, is 24-7 in their last 31 games versus an opponent with a losing record, and is 6-2 in their last eight games played on grass.
The Bears have actually played fairly well defensively this year but nobody is slowing down the Eagles. They have a two-headed monster at running back now in LaGarrette Blount and Jay Ajayi and not many quarterbacks are playing better than Carson Wentz right now. I just don't trust the under in Philadelphia games right now.
