Week 16 NFL Betting trend comes into play for the 1PM game that has Chicago traveling to Tampa Bay. Here the hosts have a 6-8 record which triples their win output from last year. Having the #1 pick in the draft, a .500 record would be something to hang their hats on this season. So Tampa has a measuring bar for success while the Bears are rudderless again near the end of the year. Tampa is only a -3 home favorite! Is this the path to profit we shall tread on for the the early games this Sunday?
Week 16 NFL Betting
Who would have thought Winston would have progressed so quickly after the debacle in week one against Marcus and the Titans? Youngest to three thousand and a chance to get over the 4,000 mark with two stellar games. Now even though the Bears yield a low total of yards through the air, the rest of their past defense stats are below average. They do not generate interceptions. Bend but do not break is played to an extreme as opposing quarterbacks are near the 100 in QB rating. All of this and having to face a back that is near Adrian for the rushing title will give a disinterested Bears’ defense all it can handle on Sunday.
Down with the Ship
High water mark for the Bears was catching the Pack while they were floundering. Want to see the level of quit in this team. The Vikings took them to town as Bridgewater got four touchdowns in a beatdown. Bears’ defense has gone out the window and at 5-9 with being in Florida sees little chance of real effort. Would established players risk careers absorbing hits that the Tampa running game dishes out? They did against the Vikings and the Bucs are almost as motivated as Minny last week. All this leads to only one team really showing up.
This is the surprise of the week as the line is just starting to tick near – 3 1/2 for the Bucs. Lovie Smith wants to beat his former team to display the firing was a mistake. Look for Tampa to be up while Chicago ready to break out the golf clubs at a moment’s notice. HRWager’s Free Pick for this one is Tampa Bay minus the points. Good fortune and we will see you later today here at the HRW.
