Rams vs Bears

8:20 PM EST
Rotation #476
Rams -6 over Bears (win)
All of the Rams wins this year have come in the NFC East.  They have no quality wins, but you can’t fault them for the schedule being the schedule.  The Bears are the road dog and they are getting all of the money.  That’s a big red flag.  I think this game will be close, but I just don’t like how the Bears are running the football and they take no shots down the field.  It’s hard to go 4 quarters in this day and ages football playing it safe.  All it takes is a big play from the opponent or a silly pass interference call and points are put up on the board.  It’s so hard to get the ball on your own 25 and to methodically move down the field to score a touchdown.  Only a few teams can do so.   There is also the issue with the Bears and kicking FG’s.  I do think this line is a little inflated.  I would set it at 3 if i was a bookmaker because these teams are so similar in talent, but the edge is the Rams will go for a homerun shot while the Bears will play conservative and ultimately beat themselves.  Take the Rams.
