NFL Betting Predictions: Seattle Seahawks vs Chicago Bears
Sunday morning the Seattle Seahawks travel to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears. BetDSI Sportsbook current Live Lines display Chicago as a -200 favorite giving up 3 1/2 points to the Seahawks.
The Chicago Bears lost another game last week against the Broncos 13-10 with backup QB Caleb Hanie making another unimpressive start. Hanie threw 12 completions on 19 attempts for 115 yards, at least he did not turn the ball over like weeks past. With Runningback Matt Forte hurt, Marion Barber carried the ball 27 times for 108 yards and a touchdown but had a key fumble which cost them the game. The Bears still without a big playmaking receiver had Johnny Knox lead the team with only 3 receptions for 37 yards.
Last week against Denver the Bears defense was very tight allowing only 13 total points on 345 total yards, 221 passing, and 124 rushing. Linebacker Brian Urlacher led the Bears in tackles with 11 with Lance Briggs not far behind wtih 9. CB Chris Tillman had 5 tackles and an interception and SS Craig Steltz had 5 tackles, 1 sack and a forced fumble.
The Seattle Seahawks have won two games outscoring their opponents 61-27, with their last victory a 30-13 trouncing of the Rams at home. In that game QB Tavaris Jackson played very effectively going 21/32 for 224 yards and a touchdown. Marshawn Lynch has still been beastly having 23 carries for 115 yards and a TD. WR Doug Baldwin had a big game grabbing 7 receptions for 93 yards and a touchdown.
Seahawks’ defense last week made things very difficult for St Louis who had only 281 total yards of offense, 167 passing, 114 rushing. Three different Seahawks players had sacks, defensive ends K.J. Wright, Anthony Hargrove, and linebacker Chris Clemons. Cornerback Brandon Browner had 4 tackles and an interception.
My Prediction: This is one of those lines that looks beautiful. Chicago Bears QB Caleb Hanie has yet to score a touchdown in his last two games while having 3 interceptions, a fumble, and has taken 11 sacks. Seattle’s offense and defense have both been clicking at a high level and I look for them to stun the Bears in Chicago. Take the Seattle Seahawks on the moneyline over the Bears.
