The Giants should have a healthy Saquon Barkley in the backfield this week after he was slowed by a shoulder injury before the bye.

When you have a handful of excellent NFL matchups in one week, you also have to games like this stinker between the New York Giants and Chicago Bears. It may only be Week 12, but it looks like each of these squads is already playing for next year.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

It’s tough to find confident Bears bettors these days – and rightfully so. Chicago opened as a 7-point favourites but that spread quickly shifted to Bears -6. As of now, more than 70 percent of wagers are backing the Giants to cover. The Bears and Giants have covered just once over their last six games, so it’s not like either of these squads have been reliable bets. Early action is heavily weighted on this game going under the 40-point total.

New York Giants

The New York Giants are coming off their bye after a somewhat encouraging performance in their latest defeat. They dropped a 34-27 decision to the Jets in Week 10, but at least they moved the ball. Rookie quarterback Daniel Jones fired four touchdown passes and threw for 308 yards without an interception and wide receiver Darius Slayton went off for 121 yards and two scores on 10 catches. The Giants should also have a healthy Saquon Barkley in the backfield this week after he was slowed by a shoulder injury before the bye. All that is good news, especially when the G-Men defence continues to struggle. New York allows 28.9 points per game (30th) and is 27th in total defence.

Chicago Bears

Another week, another week of quarterback controversy in Chicago. Mitchell Trubisky was brutal again in last weekend’s loss to the Rams and was on the sideline for the Bears’ last drive of the game. Coach Matt Nagy said that was because his starter was battling a hip issue, although it isn’t expected to keep him out of action against the Giants. Either way, the Bears have to be getting near the end of their rope with the former No. 2 overall pick. He ranks 26th overall in QB efficiency at 82.2 and only seems to be regressing at this point. It’s a same too, because Chicago’s defence keeps pulling its weight even though the unit isn’t what it was last year. The Bears haven’t allowed more than 22 points in any of their last four games and have just one win over that span.
