The Jaguars are now in control of the first overall pick in the draft and the key to Trevor Lawrence and all they have to do is continue to lose games. The Bears should be able to do that for them as they’ve been revitalized by David Montgomery the last few weeks, scoring at least 30 points in their last three games. Chicago is back to .500 and have covered in 7 of 14 this year. The Bears have a top 10 defense and should be able to manage Gardner Minshew here in this one.
The Bears have covered just 2 of their last 6 but the Jags don’t give me much hope. If I were going to bet the spread here, I’d be buying it down to 7 as the Bears haven’t covered a game that was set at more than 5.5 this whole season. But if I’m being honest, I’m probably not touching this game and if I was being forced to, I’m betting under. These two rank 23rd and 29th in total scoring and the Bears have hit the under in 5 of their last 5 against an AFC team. David Montgomery is the top scorer on the Bears offense which means the clock will stay ticking and this one should be quick.
Prediction: Bears 27 Jags 14
