Okay NFL football bettors. If you like making Over/Under total wagers, then you’re in for a treat as I offer up an expert O/U pick on Monday night’s Week 2 matchup between the Chicago Bears and visiting Seattle Seahawks.
This contest looks like a virtual O/U lock to me, now let’s find out why by checking all betting details.
I know Seattle failed to run the ball and that Russell Wilson tossed a pair of costly interceptions in their season-opening 27-24 road loss to Denver, but Seattle has scored 24 points or more in four of their last six regular-season games while allowing 26 points or more in four games as well. The points is, Seattle can both, score the all decently – and now that their Legion of Boom days are over – apparently give up their fair share of points defensively.
The Over is 4-2 in Seattle’s last six regular-season games.
I know Chicago fell apart in the fourth quarter of their 24-23 Week 1 road loss at Green Bay, but the Bears have seen their offense clearly transformed by the arrival of head coach Matt Nagy. The Bears scored 24 points or more in all four of their preseason games while scoring an identical 27 points three times. Nagy, the former offensive coordinator in Kansas City, clearly has a good grasp of how to concur an explosive offense and you can kind of see that’s how he’s molding the Bears. The Over is 4-1 in Chicago’s last 5 games in Week 2 and a consistent 13-6 in their last 19 games in the month of September.
Expert Pick and Prediction
With both of these teams being able to put points on the board, I believe the Over 43 total points for this contest is an absolute lock as I expect both teams to score – and give up – at least 20 points. Besides, the Over is a perfect 6-0 in the last 6 meetings between these NFC counterparts when they meet in Chicago and 8-1 in the last 9 meetings overall. Take the over…it’s that easy!
Predicted Score: Seahawks 31 Bears 27
