Bears vs Eagles 2019 NFL Week 9 Betting Lines & Preview

Written by on October 29, 2019

With the halfway point of the NFL season now upon us, we can seriously start to look at the playoff standings and get an idea what each team needs to do in order to play football beyond the end of the regular season. One thing that is already obvious is that it’s going to be tougher for those teams on the outside looking in over in the NFC, as we are seeing some definite separation between the top teams and the rest of the pack. Of the 6 teams currently sitting in a playoff spot, none of them have less than 6 wins on the season.

With that in mind, it might well take 9 or 10 wins on the season just to get close to the Wild Card. What that means is that both the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles need to start putting some wins together sooner rather than later. You could even argue that a loss for the Bears in this one might well mean that they are too far off the pace to get back in it. The Eagles are in as a 5.5-point home favorite, with the point total set at 43.

Why bet on the Chicago Bears?

When the Bears drafted Mitch Trubisky, they believed that they were landing their QB of the future. That may still turn out to be the case, but for the moment, this young man looks to be seriously lacking in confidence. The Chicago defense is keeping their team in games, but they can only do so much, which was very much the case in a 17-16 loss to the LA Chargers last weekend.

With that defeat the Bears have now lost 3 in a row to fall to 3-4 on the season. A loss here would mean just 3 wins at the midway point of the season, which would then require them to be near perfect in the second half. The Bears are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games and are just 1-4 SU and ATS in their last 5 meetings with Philly.

Why bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?

At 4-4, the Eagles are not in much better shape than the Bears but the advantage that they do have is that they are still very much in the hunt in the NFC East, although a recent loss to the Cowboys did hurt them there. Still, Philadelphia bounced back from that loss in a big way, taking down the Buffalo Bills 31-13 in a game that might just have been the best performance of the season from the Eagles.

Bears vs Eagles should be an easy one for Philadelphia.

We already know that they have been good against the Bears in their last 5 meetings, but the Eagles have also been very tough to beat at home, going 5-1 SU in their last 6 games in their own building. Versus teams from the NFC North, 4 of the last 5 have gone OVER the point total.
