San Francisco 49ers vs Chicago Bears Predictions

Key Stat: San Francisco have much more talent in their ranks

Tip Reasoning

  • They were minutes away from playing in the Super Bowl last season
  • The Bears had another disappointing campaign with a 6-11 record last time out
  • They will need some time to adjust to life under new head coach Matt Eberflus

San Francisco 49ers begin the new season with the trip to Windy City to battle Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field. The sportsbooks see the visitors as a touchdown favorite and we can’t but agree with such expectations. It is really hard to predict anything else but a San Fran win in a pretty much straightforward affair here based on everything we know about these two teams. 

Let’s start with the Bears. They are off to a restart campaign after going 6-11 last time out. They have made managerial change once again, signing their fifth head coach in the previous eleven seasons. His name is Matt Eberflus and as you know he was the former defensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts. While he is expected to improve Chicago’s defense this season, he could have hardly chosen a tougher for his new defensive line who will be going face to face with Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, and company. We will go with the 49ers who possess much more talent and depth in their ranks. You can back the visitors to win in -7 point spread at the -110 odds.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: The line simply invites us to go with the Over pick here

  • The 49ers offense will be exciting to watch
  • The Bears’ defensive line will need some time to gel under new head coach
  • The Bears can’t do much to shut down Samuel

It will be very interesting to watch the 49ers with Trey Lance under the center. He will have plenty of offensive weapons to feed, including Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, Trey Sermon, and Elijah Mitchell among others. Looking at the Over/Under lines, we can’t resist the temptation of backing the high-scoring contest knowing these two teams only need to pas the 40-point mark combined on Sunday. Yes, the Bears are limited offensively and their new head coach is the former Colts defensive coordinator, but we just have to go with the Over 40.5 points just because of the line.
