Bears vs Giants NFL Week 13 Spread & Game Analysis

Written by on November 27, 2018

The Chicago Bears battle the New York Giants in a game that became much tougher due to quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s possible absence. The line remains off simply because the Giants have been playing great while the Bears might have to start Chase Daniel under center instead of Trubisky. Check out our NFL betting analysis along with a pick ATS.

Why Chicago Bears are a good bet ATS?

Whether Trubisky plays or not, the Bears will be a great bet ATS. Chicago has the defense to cover a -7 spread, which is what it should be if Trubisky suits up, or a -1.5 to -2 spread, which is what it should be if Chase Daniel plays.

The Bears’ offensive strategy is about getting running back Tarik Cohen in space and making short passes to Cohen and Trey Burton while testing secondaries by throwing long. Daniel can make all the necessary throws for the offense to thrive.

Why New York Giants are a good bet ATS?

Are the Giants a safe bet for NFL Week 13?

The Giants have played great football in recent weeks. In the 3 games since their bye, NYG has gone 2-0-1. They beat San Francisco 27-23, pushed versus Tampa Bay in a 38-35 win, and covered as a +4.5 dog in a 22-25 loss to Philadelphia.

The Giants are moving the football against some good defenses. Their own defense has played well in spots. NYG gets the benefit of taking on Chicago at home in this.

Bears vs Giants Final NFL Betting Analysis

Chicago tends to play down to its competition. The Bears are a bad 1-4 ATS on the road versus teams with a losing home record. Miami upset Chicago 31-28 as a +9 home dog, the Bears struggled to beat Arizona as a big time road favorite, and if not for a couple of horrible turnovers in the red zone, Detroit could have upset Chicago on Thanksgiving Day.

The Bears are the better team, but they might not play like it. The Giants have renewed enthusiasm after the bye. NYG should not only cover but win this game on the moneyline.
