Written by on November 19, 2019

While the New York Giants aren’t picking up nearly as many victories as they’d hoped coming into the 2019 regular season, the overall consensus about the Bears has everyone from die-hard fans to doting moms up in arms in the Windy City. With the Chicago Bears desperate for a victory after winning a dozen games a year ago, let’s find out if Chicago is the pick to take care of business in this Week 12 NFC battle of the Giants vs Bears.

Why Bet On NY Giants?

Despite the fact that New York has lost six straight games, there are still some good reasons to back the G-Men in this matchup. First, the Giants have the higher scoring average in this matchup (20.3 ppg to 16.9 ppg). The 27 points the Giants scored this past weekend in their 34-27 loss to the lowly Jets is more points than Chicago has scored in their last seven games. Then, last but not least, there’s the fact that every GM in the league would much rather have Giants rookie Daniel Jones than Chicago’s third-year signal-caller Mitch Trubisky.

Why Bet On Chicago?

Wile Chicago has lost five of their last six games and looked mostly clueless in their embarrassing 17-7 road loss against the L.A. Rams on Sunday night, there are still some good reasons to back the Bears in this matchup. First, Chicago is completely and utterly desperate. Then, there’s the fact that Chicago is playing at home where they’ve gone an uninspiring 2-3 so far this season. Last but not least, Chicago has a stupendous defense that limits the opposition to just 17.4 points per game (4th).

Giants vs Bears Expert Analysis and Prediction

Let me start by saying that quarterback Mitch Trubisky is pretty damned awful and one of the biggest reasons Chicago has underachieved this season after winning a dozen games a year ago. No matter, the Bears are still the easy pick to get past the rebuilding Giants in this contest because of their powerful defense and the fact that this one is going down at Soldier Filed in the Windy City.

While I’m going with Chicago for the straight-up victory, when it comes to covering the spread, I like Daniel Jones and the G-Men to find a way to cover the chalk as nearly double-digit road dogs. Chicago has gone 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. New York has gone an impressive 9-3 ATS in their last 12 road games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a losing record. Sure, the Bears aren’t going to challenge for the NFC crown this season like they had hoped prior to the start of the 2019 campaign, but Chicago is the pick to pick up the touchdown win here.

Pick: Chicago 23 NY Giants 17
