While most of the league is focused on playoff hopes – as slim as it may be for a couple of teams – a few are focused on the NFL Draft. Both the Bears and Giants are in that type of hunt – how far up the draft board they can ascend with each loss. The Bears are coming off a win, which may be a good lean with any NFL picks featuring two bad teams.

Nick Foles as QB for Chicago is factored into sportsbooks putting Chicago as a heavy home favorite. It’s not often we find a 5-10 team as one of the larger NFL odds of the week, but it’s more a reflection of how bad the Giants are – especially at quarterback.

One of the biggest factors in week-to-week NFL betting is the QB position. Foles isn’t leading any team to the Super Bowl, but he’s far more consistent than the combo of Mike Glennon and Jake Fromm.

Take a look at Giants vs Bears odds, injury report, betting lines and more.

Giants at Bears Key Matchups

Chicago Defense vs. NYG QBs: The quarterback play and offensive line for New York are so bad it shouldn’t take much for the Bears to control this game. The Giants offense comes off one of the worst second halves we saw all season.

Bears RB vs. Giants D: Chicago may not be good this year, but its run game is. The Bears are 8th in the NFL in rushing yards per-game, and the Giants can’t stop anyone.

Mike Glennon vs. Jake Fromm: Once again we have a battle between two awful quarterbacks to see which one plays so bad, they get pulled. Chicago has a top-10 defense and will feast on either QB.

Giants at Bears Key Stats

122.7: The Bears are putting up a lot of rushing yards each game and should be able to torch the Giants on the ground.

31: It’s not all good for the Bears, as they are near the bottom of the league in passing yards per-game, with just one team worse.

16: The Giants rank in the middle of the pack and are able to defend the pass somewhat as they only give up 250 yards in the air each week. This might be the best matchup for the Giants.

4-9: The combined TD-INT ratio for Glennon and Fromm. Not great.

4: Foles was sacked four times in his only start, last week against Seattle. Protecting the QB has been a challenge for both teams this year.

713: David Montgomery’s team-leading rushing yards this year. Compare that to Saquon Barkley’s disappointing 461 in 11 games.

Giants at Bears Moneyline

The line is a little larger than what the moneyline indicates, but betting sites are still giving you a break on the Giants. I just can’t trust anything with the Giants QB situation. They would have to do things well that they haven’t done consistently all year to beat a bad Bears team.

It’s hard enough to win a parlay, let alone one that requires a bad team to do multiple positive things. The Bears are a little too steep at this price to play, but if you want to limit the points and still get a win, throw them in a 6-point teaser.

Giants at Bears Spread

It’s so hard to rely on the Giants offense, no matter how well their defense has played at times. Chicago isn’t trustworthy either, it just has a better QB and defense than New York. The Giants may get a few stops, but how are they going to score points?

It was painfully obvious that neither Fromm nor Glennon could move the ball last week against Philadelphia, and Chicago has a better overall defense. I love the Bears defense to score in this game, causing a couple of turnovers including a pick-6 or fumble returned for a TD. Don’t be surprised if they return a punt on New York.

It may seem like a large spread. but the Giants are done playing football this year. We’re on the Bears and giving the points at BetMGM, which is offering new users a risk-free first bet worth up to $1,000 with its BetMGM bonus code.

Giants at Bears Total

These teams love the under this year with a combined 18-11-1 record. Neither team has a great offense, and the Giants do limit the pass. The main staples of these two teams right now are in their respective backfields, including getting the ball to Montgomery or Booker/Barkley in the air.

The Bears will take a couple of shots down field, but they don’t have a great OL. It’s marginally better than New York, but expect a lot of sacks in this game – especially on third down. Drives will stall and the clock will move. Taking the Under on betting apps.
