NFL Predictions from 10,000 simulations
The Jacksonville Jaguars suddenly have the upper hand in the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes after the Jets blew the only job they had by beating the Rams last week. Will the Jags have any motivation at all to turn out a competitive performance against the Chicago Bears?
Our NFL Bet Hub predictions below expect the Bears to continue to march on towards a spot in the playoffs.
As well as simulating the spread, ML, and Over/Under markets, our data also covers anytime touchdown scorers. Jaguars RB James Robinson is the highest-rated chance to score, ranking at a 56% chance to score 6. Check out more player props for Bears @ Jaguars here!
Neither team has been great ATS (at the spread) so far this season, with Chicago 7-7 and Jacksonville 6-8 (which I guess you could say is pretty good for a team that is 1-13!).
This line may shift from the 7-points that it has opened at, so it's best to keep track of the latest information below for the best play to make according to our data, but right now, take the Jags and the points.
With Chicago expected to control the tempo in this one, the under looks to be a great play. The under has prevailed in 8 of the Bears' 14 games so far this season. Look for them to lock it down on the Jags who may be running some "experimental" plays on offense while secretly hoping Trevor Lawrence is currently shopping for houses in the Jacksonville area just in case.
Tanking jokes aside, many players on this Jaguars team are fighting for their careers as their seasons draw to an end. While the team owners may want Lawrence next year, the players on the field are competitive beasts and want to win. The sportsbook odds on the Jags are high because of the Lawrence factor. That means a small play could land a big return. Not saying it's going to happen, but it's the strategic betting play to cover all bases.
🏈 Dimers' take-out
The tail end of the NFL season always throws up some interesting games with external sub-plots, and this is one of them. The Bears need to win, the Jags need to lose, but will that actually happen?
