4* Free Week 8 NFL Betting Prediction: Chicago +8.5
I’m officially a fan of Tyson Bagent. He became the first Bears rookie QB to win a game since 2004 when Craig Krenzel won. (Google it! LOL) You haven’t heard of him? He’s the undrafted backup QB on the Bears out of Division II Shepherd University. (Google it! LOL)
Did you know he holds the NCAA’s all time record for TD passes? 159. (Google it! LOL) He was 26-4 in his L2 seasons and you could say he knows how to win.
Bagent looked better than expected in his first start and his present? He now gets to face a Chargers defense that has been one of the worst in the NFL.
As road underdogs, I’m like the value of taking the Bears. Right now, they are at +8.5, and I’ll be locking them in at this number while I can. Not saying the Bears win, but they’ll be in it to win it.
Chicago are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games against LA Chargers, and the Chargers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7.
For this matchup, I’m going to be hammering the under, as our model has the Bears and Chargers combining for 41 points. Right now the over/under line is sitting at 46.5, so I’d recommend getting some action on the under.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of LA Chargers’ last 5 games.
