Chicago Bears at Arizona Cardinals Overview

Chicago Bears

The Bears continue to look like an improved ensemble that many analysts have had high hopes for in 2018. After falling narrowly to Green Bay on Sunday Night Football two weeks ago where the Bears squandered a 20-point lead to lose by a point, the Monsters of the Midway followed this up with a 24-17 victory on Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks. The Bears are 2-0 ATS this season.

Arizona Cardinals

2018 has been cruel to the Cardinals as they remain winless on the season and have done so looking abysmal. The Cards own back-to-back blowout losses against the Washington Redskins and the Los Angeles Rams falling by a combined margin of 58-6. In doing so, the Cardinals have yet to cover this season.

Reasons To Avoid Chicago

For two weeks in a row, national audiences have seen this Chicago Bears bunch take the field. What they saw looked very promising. Though they lost in their opener to the Packers, many saw that this young Chicago team could go into Lambeau Field and bully Green Bay on its own field. The same Green Bay team some predicted to go undefeated in 2017. This was followed up by a solid outing against a household name on Monday Night. Long story, short this team is likely to create an overreaction especially with what appears to be a very friendly line against their weakest opponent year-to-date.

Reasons To Back Arizona

The line here is almost too good to be true for Chicago takers. The Cardinals offense has only produced one touchdown this season, and their offense looked like a mockery against the Rams last week, as they were shut-out completely. It is hard to fathom that the Cardinals could hang with a team as well-balanced as Chicago. The Bears look too easy here, which means something is up. Home field advantage may be of the essence here as Chicago will leave cooler conditions to play in a scorching environment. That will play a role here in helping Arizona cover.

Chicago Bears at Arizona Cardinals Prediction 09/23/2018

Arizona will enter this contest with nothing to lose and thus they are all the more dangerous as we can expect them to throw the kitchen sink at the Bears. There may be an upset on the horizon here as the Bears may come in flat taking this Arizona bunch lightly. Combining with that a battle against the elements, the Cards go ahead and generate a cover.
