Best Playoff Bets For Bears vs. Saints
The Bears to Cover the Spread (+10.5)
Are the Bears likely to win? No, they aren’t. The Saints are top ten in offense and defense in the NFL, they showcase a hall of fame coach, arguably the best running back in football, and they are going to get Michael Thomas back.
The Bears may be without Roquan Smith, Jaylon Johnson, and Darnell Mooney. However, the Bears’ running game is going to keep this game close. David Montgomery ate up the clock against the Green Bay Packers, a top-10 running defense. I expect the Bears to play a slow game, instead of trying to go score for score with Drew Brees.
I will take the Bears to cover.
David Montgomery Over 62.5 Yards
If you’ve read any of my articles this season, you know that I take the over on Montgomery almost every week. This week will be no different.
Let’s face it, Matt Nagy does not trust Mitch Trubisky to make throws and run this offense to a win. David Montgomery is going to touch the ball a significant amount Sunday. He should go over this easily.
If you bet Montgomery to get over 75 yards rushing, the odds are (+110). That is what I will go with.
Alvin Kamara Rushing Attempt 10-19 Yards (+100)
Alvin Kamara is going to get a run of this caliber on Sunday. He is a sensational weapon that breaks tackles as well as any player in the league.
The Bears defense has been hot and cold against star backs this year. For example, they held Derrick Henry to under 100 yards rushing, but they were torched by Aaron Jones at Lambeau. The Bears only gave up 67 yards to Kamara in the ground back in November, but he torched them in the passing game with 96 yards.
Kamara’s last few games have been very productive, including a six-touchdown game against the Vikings. This is a good risk to take.
