Eagles +3 @ Bears -3
Murr’s picks are back and for no better time than a Monday Night game between the Bears and Eagles, two teams that haven’t sniffed the playoffs in a few years. Might as well spice this game up a bit and throw a nice bet on the Bears. That’s who I’m taking at least. Carson Wentz may have looked good in his opener but he played against the pathetic Browns. John Fox is an experienced coach and experienced coaches exploit rookies. Yes the Bears lost 23-14 to the Texans on the road last week but the Texans D is stout and held the Chiefs out of endzone all day yesterday. I can see this game staying pretty close going back and forth until the Bears pull it out on the back of 2 Alshon Jeffery TD’s. Bears 30, Eagles 24.
If you were thinking about putting some $$ on the Eagles, here are some reasons to back you up:
Bears are 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 home games.
The Bears have a 5 game losing streak at home.
But this is 2016 and this is betting. New year, new teams. Take the Bears -3, Lock it in!
