NFL Week 12 Betting Preview for Chicago Bears at New York

Chicago Bears Betting Preview: Bears Drop Fourth Straight, Could be Without Justin Fields

The Chicago Bears lost to the Atlanta Falcons by a score of 27-24 on Sunday as 2.5-point road underdogs after becoming the first NFL team to score at least 29 points in three straight games and lose all three. It was a tough day for the Chicago Bears; the offensive unit managed just 288 yards and scored only seven points in the second half. Given that quarterback Justin Fields suffered a shoulder injury on Chicago’s final drive and had to be carried to the locker room, this defeat might have been much more devastating.

With regard to the Falcons, the Bears’ defense was unable to record a sack. Despite forcing two turnovers, they were still defeated 27-24 and put up another losing effort. After dealing away some strong defensive players, the Bears’ defense has only gotten worse throughout the course of the season. 

Overall, the Bears are in sole possession of last place in the NFC North, and it looks like they will be fighting for a high draft pick after dropping their fourth straight game. Overall, the offense has started to gain some traction, averaging 29.6 points over their last five games, but their defense must improve to give Chicago a chance to win.

New York Jets Betting Preview: Jets Drop to Last Place in the AFC East

Turmoil in New York? The Jets last played the New England Patriots on Sunday, losing 10-3 as 3.5-point underdogs on the road after allowing a punt return for a touchdown in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter. For the majority of the game, they were locked in a 3-3 tie. However, they were unable to hold off New England and were swept in the season series, dropping to last place in the AFC East.

After the Jets’ loss to the Patriots on Sunday, quarterback Zach Wilson refused to acknowledge that his play let down the defense, which limited New England to a field goal. The offense was held to three points, and the quarterback finished with just 77 yards completing only 41% of his passes. Something needs to change, as the offense has averaged only 14 points over their last four games. 

In their defeat to the New England Patriots on Sunday, the Jets’ defense registered six sacks while only allowing 10 points. Up to this point in the season, New York’s defense has performed admirably and established itself as a reliable team. With 310.5 yards and 18.6 points allowed per game, they are ranked eighth overall.

With the Justin Fields injury news and the Jets’ internal issues, bettors shouldn’t trust either one of these teams. The bottom line is the Jets’ offense is incredibly inept, with Zach Wilson under center and without their star running back, Breece Hall. Robert Saleh has the defensive unit clicking on all cylinders, and they keep the offense in the game.

The Bears defense has been brutal this year, but they should be in a much better position playing a suspect offense like New Yorks’. Chicago’s offense also came back down to earth, and were held to only 288 yards last week. Even if Justin Fields does play, he won’t be 100% so expect a lot of David Montgomery. 

That being said, take the Under in this matchup. The Jets’ offense has managed just 14 points over their last four games, and Justin Fields could potentially miss this matchup. Additionally, the Jets have gone Under the total in their last five games. When it comes to the Bears vs. Jets best bets, expect this cold matchup in New York to go under the total as well.

NFL Betting Pick: Under 41.5 (-110)
