Dallas Cowboys vs. Chicago Bears Pick Against the Spread

Posted by in NFL Picks on December 9th, 2013 | Comment »

Brandon MarshallDALLAS COWBOYS @ CHICAGO BEARS (-1.5)

What a great Monday Night game. We have two quality teams jocking for playoff position. The 6-6 Bears are hosting the 7-5 Cowboys. This game has huge playoff implications. With the Eagles on a hot streak, the Cowboys need to win this one to stay on top of the NFC East. Meanwhile, the Bears need to take advantage of the Detroit Lions loss against the Philadelphia Eagles and catch up a game in the division. Check to view more updated NFL Betting news and opinions here.

I’m going to go with the Bears in this one. Both teams have slid a little in recent weeks, particularly in their defense. Dallas has been struggling to stop offenses in recent weeks and they give up a ton of yardage. The Cowboys secondary has a very tough matchup against a trio of Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffrey, and Martellus Bennett. As long as Josh McKown get some protection from his offensive line and takes care of the football, the Bears offense should do well against the Cowboys. Alshon Jeffrey has been a fantasy monster in recent weeks. We may see Alshon Jeffrey being drafted in the top 15-20 top wide receivers next year if he keeps putting up numbers like these. Expect Alshon Jeffrey to make his name known to a national television audience tonight. Are Brandon Marhshall and Alshon Jeffrey the top NFL receiving duo? This year, I would have to say yes.

You know Dallas is going to hang in there which is why you see the spread at just -1.5. The Cowboys offense always seems to keep them in games, even if they fall behind 2+ touchdowns. Dez Bryant can be a one-man wrecking crew. Will Dez Bryant finish the season like a monster? This is going to be a great game in the air for both teams. I’m expecting a high scoring game, especially with the way their respective defenses have slid in the last few weeks.

In the end, I see this is a back-and-forth game between two passing offenses. It looks like the public is favoring the Cowboys slightly and that’s probably due to the fact that the Bears have lost two straight to weaker opponents like Minnesota and St. Louis. However, both of those games have been on the road. McKown played well in those games, but the defense didn’t get the job done. I expect the Bears luck to change at home on Monday Night when they’re at home in the cold where they thrive against a dome team that’s not used to playing in the extreme cold. It’s going to be 10 degrees in Chicago. Advantage Chicago.

PICK AGAINST THE SPREAD: Chicago Bears (-1.5) – Confidence 7/10

PREDICTION: Chicago Bears 34 – Dallas Cowboys 27
