Bears-Eagles Vegas odds
|Saturday, December 17, 2022, 5:00 PM- -|
The pick is clear coming into this game - the Eagles are favored to win. Currently, the Bears are 8.5-point underdogs, with the over/under at 48.5.
Betting on the Eagles winning typically has been a safe bet, except betting under the over/under score. For the Bears, that has not been the case. The typical safe bet for the Bears has been to bet over, particularly with the Bears scoring a lot of points and giving up a lot of points. Chicago is averaging 20.8 points per game, while the Eagles, No. 1 in scoring in the NFL, are averaging 29.7 points per game.
There is one odd trend, however, in this game. In money line bets, while 93% of the bets are on the Eagles, 87% of the money is on Chicago, according to Vegas Insider. While this is probably people looking for a big payout, this does not seem likely to happen. Per Sports Betting Dime, the Eagles have a 76.9% chance of winning.
While the Eagles have the best passing defense in the NFL and the second-best rushing defense in the NFL, the way the Bears have played, it certainly seems reasonable that they will be able to put up a few touchdowns. Therefore, one effective way to make some money off of this game would be to bet on specific players.
While different outlets have different odds for anytime touchdown-scorers, one player the Bears can always count on to put some points on the board is Justin Fields. Fields has at least one rushing touchdown in the last six games he has played in, and betting him as an anytime scorer through bet365, DraftKings Sportsbook, Fanduel, and PointsBet allow betters to make some money while betting through BetMGM or Caesars Sportsbook will not allow betters to make any money. However, with bet365, you can make the most money off of your bet.
Running back David Montgomery also seems likely to score, given the fact that the Bears rely heavily on their rushing attack, being the No. 1 rushing team in the NFL. His odds are not as good as Fields, but that gives betters an opportunity to make more money. Through bet365, Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings Sportsbook, Fanduel, and PointsBet, betters can make money betting that Montgomery will score a touchdown during this game. However, Fanduel is the best place to make the most money for your bet.
