Houston Texans @ Chicago Bears Predictions and Picks

Houston Texans @ Chicago Bears Predictions


Key Stat: Mills completed just 50% of his passes last Sunday

Tip Reasoning

  • The Bears managed to beat a good team in Week 1 and they looked ok in Week 2
  • Houston blew a lead against Indianapolis and struggled heavily against Denver
  • Justin Fields is looking more and more like a weapon for Chicago

We never expected either of these teams to be playoff contenders and they proved our points just two weeks into the season. For the Bears, though, there’s some unexpected hope after they beat the 49ers to start the season and at least looked decent for a while against the Packers; the Texans, though, showed glimpses of hope during the first game against the Colts but failed to close the game and were no match for the Broncos in Week 2.

While none of them is really good, at least the Bears are slowly improving and look like a team with an outside chance of making the playoffs, especially because Fields is now surrounded by a real coaching staff that plays to his strengths. I think the Bears will easily win this game because they should harass Davis Mills with ease and they’ll cover as a result.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Neither team is really good

  • Fields passed the ball only 11 times in the previous game
  • The Bears’ defense held Aaron Rodgers for just 234 yards
  • Chicago allowed just 199 yards per game in the first two weeks

Yeah, in a game between Justin Fields and Davis Mills (and their awful crop of receivers), I don’t know how you can expect any of these teams to score a lot, which is why we’re picking the under. The Bears averaged 14.5 points in their first two games and they’re far from an exciting team; the Texans average the exact same amount and Davis Mills isn’t an elite quarterback by any means. This game has all the ingredients to be a really boring contest. We like it, because it will help our under a lot, and we don’t want to sweat on it.
