Week 3 Preview: Texans at Bears Spread, Total & Moneyline

After both teams lost in Week 2, the Bears have been installed as favorites hosting Houston. Chicago was outgained 414-228 against the Packers and could not get anything going on offense for the second straight week. This game has an over/under of points.

The Bears opened at -155 on the moneyline, with the visiting Texans at +135.

The way the market has viewed Chicago, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the full three points on the Texans gobbled up by game day. Houston has hung tough with two quality opponents but continues to come up short in the win column.

How to bet on the Chicago Bears

Moneyline

The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:

  • Bears -185
  • Panthers +310

The Bears are considered heavy favorites in this matchup (indicated by -185), requiring a $185 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Panthers are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $410 total for a $100 bet ($310 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.

Point spread

Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:

  • Bears -2.5 (-110)
  • Vikings +2.5 (-110)

In this example, Chicago is favored by 2.5 points, indicated by “-2.5.” If the Bears win the game 23-20, the Bears (-2.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Vikings keep the game within three and lose 23-21, the Vikings (+2.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.

Point total (over/under)

The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Bears’ projected point total in their Week 2 matchup with the New York Giants was just 39.5 points. The Bears won that matchup 17-13, resulting in 30 total points. Those who bet under the point total could have cashed out.

The Bears fielded another still defense in 2020 and their offense was marred by quarterback controversy. Because of this, Chicago’s games usually had low point totals, ranging anywhere from 40 to 45 points and not usually more. Barring the Bears landing a big playmaker at quarterback, their point totals will continue to be low moving into 2021.

In-play and live betting

Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Bears (-225) were heavily favored against the Jaguars (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Bears to win would win just $4.44.

However, say the Bears fell to a big 21-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Jaguars, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Bears to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Chicago (+130) at halftime and the Bears pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).

This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Jaguars(+190) in that game, but Chicago jumps out to a 13-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Chicago (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.

Parlays and teasers

You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.

Futures

Futures are long-term bets that can range from an offseason to a full season (or beyond). Team win totals, award winners, and player performance are common futures.

Bears 2021 recap

Record: 6-11, Third in NFC North

Record ATS: 6-11

Over/under record: 7-10

Another frustrating year felt like one year too many under Matt Nagy. Ownership felt so, too, as they canned Nagy shortly after the season ended. The coaching staff wrestled with their QB situation: start Justin Fields? Start the veteran Andy Dalton? Neither seemed to be the correct answer, but Fields wasn’t given a full offseason of prepping to be the team’s starter, giving him a massive disadvantage. Under the franchise tag, Allen Robinson was rendered completely ineffective while the Bears’ defense didn’t do enough to win games. A frustrating season is well in the books.
