Bears vs 49ers NFL Week 11 Monday Night Football Prediction

Chicago Bears: Aiming to keep pace with the Packers

Chicago woke up Monday morning to find that they have company on the top perch in the NFC North. The Green Bay Packers defeated the Detroit Lions 24-20 during Sunday Week 11 action to move to 7-3 while the Bears sit with a 7-2 record. Chicago will start QB Jason Campbell under center tonight and they are hoping to avoid a repeat of their 2011 late season swoon. Sitting at 7-3 the Bears lost QB Jay Cutler to a broken finger and then proceeded to post a 1-5 record down the stretch. Campbell is an eight-season NFL veteran.

San Francisco 49ers: Looking to fend off Seattle in the NFC West

Thanks in large part to their tie game with the St. Louis Rams during Week 10 action, San Francisco now sits tied with Seattle in the win column in the NFC West. Like the Bears, the Niners will be starting their backup quarterback as Colin Kaepernick will lead the 49ers into battle tonight. Kaepernick played in a little over half the game last weekend and, while his scrambling ability was sharp, his passing skills were not. Up against a brutally tough Bears defense, this is not a good spot for the sophomore quarterback out of Nevada.

Online Sports Betting Chicago vs San Francisco Betting Lines and Prediction

Due to the concussions suffered by starting quarterbacks Alex Smith and Jay Cutler, we had to wait awhile for the betting lines for tonight’s contest. Now that we know both teams will start their backups under center, the sportsbook at topbet.eu has posted the 49ers as -4.5 point spread favorites and -210 on the money line. The Bears are road cubs with +175 ML odds and the O/U has been set at 35 points. That’s a new low for the NFL 2012 season and both clubs were in games with the 37.5 previous low – both contests stayed UNDER.

We caution against putting a lot of stock in Kaepernick’s scrambling ability. While his 66 rushing yards and one TD looked good last weekend, that was against the Rams and they were not prepared for a dual threat QB. Chicago has had a full week to study 49ers game film and one has to believe that they were prepping for Kaepernick (not Smith) to be under center tonight. As tempting as the UNDER and Chicago straight up is to us, we are going take the 4.5 points and back the Bears with a 10% bankroll wager at TopBet!
