DraftKings Illinois NFL Week 9 Best Bet
Chicago Bears vs Tennessee Titans
The Chicago Bears (5-3) will look to end their two-game losing streak this weekend when they take on the Tennessee Titans (5-2), who are also on a two-game losing streak of their own. The Bears enter this game coming off of a loss to the New Orleans Saints 26-23 in overtime. Tennessee suffered an upset in their last game, losing to the Cincinnati Bengals pretty convincingly by a score of 31-20.
The Bears offense has been their Achilles heel all season long. Their defense isn’t exactly as elite as it has been in recent years but it is still good enough to help one of the league’s worst offenses to a 5-3 record. Chicago’s offense is near the bottom of the league in most major categories. Replacing quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with Nick Foles earlier in the year didn’t give this Chicago offense the spark they were hoping for.
For Tennessee, they have actually been quite the opposite of Chicago. While the Bears have struggled on offense and done well on defense, the Titans have done well on offense and struggled defensively. The Titans’ offense is in the top 10 in most major categories (other than their 18th-ranked pass offense), thanks to running back Derrick Henry.
Chicago’s defense is at its weakest against the rush (16th). This is a bad recipe for trying to win against the Titans. Henry will dictate the pace of this offense. However, don’t sleep on quarterback Ryan Tannehill who has shown us that he is more than capable of winning games with his arm. It doesn’t hurt that he has an excellent tight end in Jonnu Smith and arguably the most underrated wide receiver in the NFL in A.J. Brown.
Foles and the Bears’ offense have struggled almost every time they have the ball. While the Titan’s defense has been struggling this year, the Bears offense shouldn’t be too much of a threat. The Titans are the better team in this matchup and they are the ones who should rebound from their two-game skid. Tennessee should make a statement in this game and get a comfortable win and cover against a Bears’ team that isn’t as good as their record would have you think.
