Chicago Bears at New England Patriots Final Betting Prediction
The odds line has already gone up a point and a half. New England opened a -8.5 choice. By Sunday, the line had moved to Patriots -10.
Mac Jones might be healthy enough to play, but even if he is, Bill Belichick could decide to go with Bailey Zappe. Belichick won’t tell anyone who his choice at quarterback is until the last moment.
Whoever plays QB for the Pats won’t matter. Chicago is great against the pass but ranks thirty-first versus the rush, which means the Patriots will run it all day.
Also, New England’s defense will throttle Justin Fields. All told, New England wins and covers on Monday night. The Patriots have become one of the top teams in the league and should overwhelm the Bears on both sides of the ball.
