Season Win Totals NFL Predictions – Chicago Bears 2014 Lines

Bears Over / Under Season Wins

The Chicago Bears’ offense got a much needed kick in the pants last season with Marc Trestman coming to town. The perennially underachieving unit finally got it all together and came up with a big season.

The problem was, the Bear defense endured a rare down season, and the team now enters 2014 hoping to get everything together at once.

Over Under Lines

The Bears gave up more yardage and points than we’re used to seeing from them a year ago, and it spoiled an uncharacteristically potent offensive season from them.

The defense loses defensive end Julius Peppers and defensive tackle Henry Melton, but it gets back some help right along that very defensive line with the additions of Jared Allen, Lamarr Houston, and Willie Young.

The defense also gets cornerback Kyle Fuller, a first-round pick who will help solidify things on the back end. The team also used its second and third round picks to help the defense, grabbing a pair of defensive tackles to help cushion the loss of Melton.

There’s little turnover on offense, which is a good thing. The one key loss is backup quarterback Josh McCown, who moves to Tampa Bay where he will be the starter after Coach Trestman offered the veteran a boost in his quarterback-friendly system.

The unit returns its quartet of stellar offensive weapons. Quarterback Jay Cutler missed a fair bit of time last season, but he seemed to really take a liking to the new offense, and he could have a big year in store for us this upcoming season.

The team’s offensive skill players all enjoyed big seasons. Brandon Marshall still has some big years left in him, particularly with Alshon Jeffery emerging on the other side. Jeffery was a very pleasant surprise after a disappointing rookie season.

Running back Matt Forte has been hit or miss throughout his career, but Coach Trestman’s system seems to fit him perfectly. He could be in for another strong receiving season in which he catches north of 70 balls.

Bears NFL Betting Prediction

The Bears have talent all over the field on both sides of the ball. The offense has a chance to be special with a pair of standout wide receivers and an elite running back.

It’s rare that the team’s defense is a weakness, but that wasn’t the case a year ago. It’s unlikely that will be the case again this season.

The Green Bay Packers of course stand in the way, but it wouldn’t be outrageous if the Bears were to soar past this win total and claimed the division, though it’s more likely they’ll be neck-and-neck with the Packers right down to the end. Let’s call it an 11-5 kind of season for the Bears.

The play: Over 8.5 (-115)
