Colts vs Bears- September , 2012
C’mon, do you really need advice on this one? The bears defense is nothing compared to anything Andrew Luck has experienced in his career including the preseason and it almost certainly will be extremely ugly for the rookie quarterback. Briggs, Peppers, Urlacher…. Welcome to the NFL Mr. Luck… yes, you will need a lot of it.
I don’t care about Andrew Luck or the rebuilt Colts. The bears have only gotten better from last season. Now that Cutler has a legitimate star receiver in Brandon Marshall, combined with multi-talented Matt Forte in the backfield,Chicago’s offense will score more than they have in recent years.
The Colts need to time to improve, they have some pieces, but it’s not going to happen this year. Perhaps by week 5 or 6 the Colts may come to life and start shocking some teams. Until then, I like the Colts and Andrew Luck to have a lot of trouble staying in many games.
The Bears are currently a 9.5 point favorite which is a lot for the usual low-moderate scoring Bears. That said, rookie QB plus the Bears solid defense leads me in the direction of turnover that lead to points forChicago. I wouldn’t be surprise if point scored as a result of turnovers is over 9.5.
