NFL Week 13 Predictions: San Francisco 49ers vs. Chicago Bears 12/4/16

Will the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers find themselves in an offensive showcase when the two struggling teams meet at 1PM ET?

According to the oddsmakers at BetDSI, the 49ers are now favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -2 points against the Bears. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 43 points. San Francisco has won three of the last four over Chicago while the two have hit the over in three straight meetings.

Bet on 49ers vs. Bears

Chicago has dropped three straight to fall to 2-9 on the season. The Bears are 6-5 with the under on the year, hitting it in four of their last six. Chicago has one of the worst offenses in the NFL, as the Bears are putting up just 16.2 points per game this season. Defensively, they allow 24 points per game despite the fact they are allowing just 357.4 yards per game. The offense is dealing without a number of key players right now. Jay Cutler will miss the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury while top receiver Alshon Jeffery is suspended for two more games. Matt Barkley is taking over under center. He has thrown for 397 yards and three touchdowns this season to go with four interceptions. Jordan Howard has had a good season, as the running back has run for 766 yards and two scores since taking over the starting role.

San Francisco has lost 10 straight to fall to 1-10 on the season. They 49ers are 7-4 with the over this season, but have hit the under in two of their last three games. San Francisco has one of the worst defenses in the NFL, allowing 31.3 points and 432.9 yards per game. They really struggle against the run, allowing 171.8 yards per game. Offensively, San Francisco isn’t much better, posting just 20.7 points and 338.3 yards per game. Colin Kaepernick has thrown for 1,440 yards and 10 touchdowns since taking over as starting QB. He also has run for 373 yards and a score. Carlos Hyde is the leading rusher with 594 yards and six touchdowns.

The Bears are beat up on offense, but their defense is still a respectable unit that I think will play well at home against the 49ers. San Francisco isn’t a good defense, but should be able to make some stops against the Bears, who are basically down to Howard as the lone playmaker. Look for the 49ers to stack the box and make it tough for Chicago to move the ball, keeping this total on the low side.
