The disappointing Chicago Bears look to keep their slim playoff hopes alive with an upset victory on Sunday night at the almost as disappointing Los Angeles Rams.

Back when the 2019 NFL schedule was released in April, Bears-Rams looked like one of the biggest games of the regular season. Los Angeles finished 13-3 last regular season, won the NFC West and of course would go on to lose in the Super Bowl to New England. Chicago was 12-4 and won the NFC North but was upset in the Wild-Card round by Philadelphia and not much has gone right since. In fact, had Cody Parkey made the 43-yard kick to beat Philly in the final seconds, the Bears would have visited the Rams in the Divisional Round.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The teams did play in the 2018 regular season on a cold Sunday night in Chicago in Week 14 and the Bears’ defence was spectacular in a 15-6 victory. Los Angeles was held to just 214 yards and turned the ball over four times – all interceptions by Jared Goff (bit of foreshadowing for his Super Bowl performance). Todd Gurley was a non-factor with 28 yards rushing.

Chicago QB Mitchell Trubisky wasn’t much better than Goff with 110 yards passing and three interceptions, but the Bears rushed for 194 yards. Chicago’s only TD was a third-quarter trick play where Trubisky hit offensive lineman Bradley Sowell on a pass. That led to Sowell performing one of the better end zone celebrations of last season by any player.

The Bears are 7-2 ATS in the past nine meetings.

Chicago Bears

Chicago’s playoff hopes would have died had it been upset at home by a Detroit team missing starting quarterback Matthew Stafford on Sunday, but the Bears did just enough to win 20-13 and snap a four-game losing streak. Trubisky tied his season high with three touchdown passes and didn’t turn it over. Still, the Bears were outgained 357-226 so their offensive problems clearly haven’t been fixed. Chicago struggled to run the ball against one of the NFL’s worst defences and Trubisky was sacked five times.

Starting linebacker Danny Trevathan left in the first quarter with an elbow injury and his season may be over. Tight end and former second-round pick Adam Shaheen was a healthy scratch and has proven to be a major bust. Chicago is 9-3 ATS in its past 12 after a win.

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams came out of their bye week and laid a huge egg offensively in a 17-12 loss in Pittsburgh. Their only touchdown came via their defence. Goff was picked off twice and lost a fumble, which was returned for a touchdown. Top receiver Cooper Kupp was held without a catch for just the second time in his three-year career. Los Angeles converted just 1 of 14 third downs.

The L.A. defence played well enough to win, holding the Steelers to 273 yards and forcing two turnovers. Rams receiver Brandin Cooks (concussion) didn’t play and centre Brian Allen left with a lower-body injury. Last thing that struggling offensive line needs is to potentially lose Allen. The Rams are 8-2 ATS in their past 10 vs. the NFC.
