Chicago Bears vs Atlanta Falcons Lines - NFL Week 11 Prediction

Chicago Bears vs Atlanta Falcons Lines – NFL Week 11 Prediction

There are several different reasons why a team succeeds or fails over the course of a season in the NFL. Obviously, the talent that is put on the field and how they execute plays is huge, but you also need to take into account the strength of the division and the conference. Every season, we see one division that appears a good deal weaker than the rest. This year, you could certainly argue that the NFC South is among the worst, as there is still the potential of having a division winner heading to the playoffs with a losing record. The Falcons had the lead in the South for a moment, but they are currently on the slide. They need a win against the Bears this weekend if they are to keep pace with the suddenly surging Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both teams seem rather evenly matched, which is why the bookies have this one as tight. Atlanta is a 3-point home favorite, with the point total set at 49. Let’s take a closer look at the upcoming match between Bears and Falcons, so you can bet against their NFL Betting Odds.

Why bet on the Chicago Bears

It has been a frustrating season for the Bears, who have made a habit of finding ways to lose close games. They are on a 3-game losing streak ahead of this one, with their last 2 defeats decided by a combined 4 points. It seems that when the defense is playing well, the offense struggles, and vice versa. The offense has been doing its thing of late, scoring 91 points in the last 3 games, but with the defense surrendering 115 points in that same stretch, it’s no surprise that the Bears have failed to win for a few weeks now. This, though, may be a way out of the slump for the Bears, as they have won 11 of their last 15 games against the Atlanta Falcons. Add to that the fact that they have covered in 10 of their last 12 games against Atlanta and you have a very convincing argument to play Chicago. The UNDER has hit in 7 of their last 8 visits to the ATL.

Why bet on the Atlanta Falcons

Moving on from the Matt Ryan era and handing the reins to Marcus Mariota, it was tough to know what to expect from the Falcons this season. One thing we can all agree on is that we didn’t expect them to win the division, but they are still in position to do so. That said, back-to-back losses have dropped them to 4-6 on the season, with this run coming at a time when the Buccaneers are playing better and taking control of the division. This is a must win game for Atlanta if they have any hope of staying in the division race all the way to the finish. The Falcons are just 2-6 SU in their last 8 versus the NFC North. They are also just 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games. 9 of their last 11 meetings with Chicago have gone UNDER.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

This has all the makings of a close one, but I am giving the slight edge to the Falcons at home, especially given the slump that the Bears are in.
