The eliminated Chicago Bears (4-10) are gearing up for their date with the soon-to-be eliminated Seattle Seahawks (5-9) this Sunday. As far as a TV ratings draw, this game couldn’t be further from it with so many other games on the slate for Week 16 boasting serious playoff implications and vying for viewers’ attention.

However, with the Seahawks spotting a touchdown unanimously across multiple top betting sites, there’s an undeniable betting draw to this otherwise meaningless game.

There are several key on-field battles that the Seahawks can take advantage of to validate this substantial 7-point spread at the sportsbooks exchange and simultaneously make oddsmakers look very, very smart. But it’s one thing to believe they can do it; another to do it.

Speculation is rife about the future of Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson after the pair combined for the first time in their nearly ten-year partnership to produce a losing record. Sentimentalists hope the Seahawks will finish on a high note with three games left on the schedule. But one wonders how much the Seahawks have left in the tank after a trying and emotional week – upended by a COVID-19 outbreak that forced their Week 15 clash with the Los Angeles Rams to be pushed back to Tuesday – ended with a 20-10 loss to their division rivals and all-but ended their season.

Check out the latest Bears vs Seahawks odds, betting lines, injury report and more.

Bears vs Seahawks Key Matchups

Bears defense vs Russell Wilson: The Bears held the Vikings to a paltry 193 total yards in Monday Night Football, marking a season-low for the league’s third-ranked offense. They registered four sacks on Kirk Cousins and stifled the offense to just 13 first downs. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense took a step back in Tuesday’s loss to the Rams after putting up 30+ points in the previous two games. If the Bears defense plays as well as it did against Minnesota, it might be a brutal day for Wilson.

Justin Fields vs Seattle defense: The Chicago offense continues to struggle under Fields. Chicago’s defense gave the rookie every opportunity against the Vikings, but he failed to capitalize on those. The final score belies the laborious account. Had Fields not tossed a last-gasp touchdown to narrow the score margin, Chicago’s offensive contribution to the game would have amounted to just a field goal. Seattle’s defense is a far cry from its Legion of Boom days, but they just might have a field day with the rookie.

Seahawks vs. Fatigue: The Seahawks are getting no favors from the NFL schedulers. Although it’s unfortunate that their game had to be rescheduled after nearly 10 players hit the reserve/COVID-19 list, along with nearly 30 players from the Rams (first team and practice squad), the show must go on, as the saying goes. It’s a short week for the Seahawks and a quick turnaround for this Sunday tilt. Fatigue is likely to be a factor here.

Weather Forecast

Seattle’s weather forecast isn’t great for the weekend. Rain and potential snow flurries are on the forecast. Worst-case scenario 2 inches of snow could fall.

Bears vs Seahawks Moneyline

The Seattle Seahawks might have turned in a disappointing performance against the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday night, but nothing about Chicago’s account on Monday Night Football suggests the Bears are poised to heap more misery on Pete Carroll’s side. If there’s going to be any misery, it’s more likely to be the principality of embattled Chicago head coach Matt Nagy, who by all accounts is on borrowed time. Rumors about Nagy’s firing first began circulating around Thanksgiving.

The Bears are trading as high as +245 with DraftKings Sportsbook to clinch the win over the Seahawks at Lumen Field. In a vacuum, betting $100 to win $245 is quite tempting as far as risk-versus-reward is concerned. When it involves betting on a side that has lost eight of its nine games, it’s hard to justify such a bet for this week’s NFL picks.

On the flipside, with most betting apps pegging the hosts at -300 or higher, betting on Seattle’s odds is even less appealing. Forking out $300 to win $100 on a team that is in the midst of an existentialist crisis isn’t for the fainthearted.

Bears vs Seahawks Point Spread

Bookmakers have pegged this matchup at 7 points for NFL spreads bettors to sink their teeth into. Considering neither Chicago nor Seattle is a strong performer this season against the spread (ATS) – the Bears are 4-10-0 ATS while the Seahawks are 5-9-0 ATS, it’s a risky bet either way.

That said, betting on the Seahawks as touchdown favorites at home is probably going to be the popular bet in NFL betting markets. This isn’t the vaunted Seahawks side of previous years. This Seahawks have fallen apart, literally. And it also turns out (shockingly) Mr Unlimited is extremely limited. But even with these valid points, the Bears are simply much worse. The Bears are 2-5-0 ATS on the road with an 11.3 losing margin on average.

Bears vs Seahawks Totals

The game total ranges between 43.5 and 44 points depending on the preferred sports betting site. Under most circumstances, this would be a modest total that could go either way. For this matchup, in particular, it feels way too high. Let’s face it, what are the chances that this game will turn into a shootout?

Both these teams have struggled to score for different reasons. Add to that the short week, players on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and the weather forecast and, well, this game will likely turn into a slugfest that falls under the total.
