PointsBet NFL Week 6 Best Bet
Chicago Bears vs Carolina Panthers
The Chicago Bears (4-1) are coming off of a big win against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-19 last week. The Carolina Panthers (3-2) enter this game on a three-game winning streak after dropping their first two games of the season. They defeated the lowly Atlanta Falcons last week 23-16.
Nick Foles is now the quarterback in Chicago and he got a big win last week for the Bears in his second game as the starter. While Foles himself didn’t have the greatest of games (30/42 243 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT), it was clear the entire team seems to have more energy with him on the field. The defense, usually a powerhouse for Chicago, isn’t having its best season either but they are allowing the fourth-fewest points per game this season.
Carolina has been a bit of a surprise over their last three weeks. Despite losing their franchise running back Christian McCaffrey to an ankle injury, the Panthers have won all three of their games without him on the field. Teddy Bridgewater is off to a great start this season (130/178, 1460 yards, 6 TD, 3 INT), and running back Mike Davis (426 all-purpose yards) has filled in well for McCaffrey. While the Panthers have struggled against the run this season (25th), their defense has played well during their win streak despite playing some potent offenses.
For Chicago, the gameplan should be to establish the run early in this game against that vulnerable Panthers’ run defense. Let Foles work as more of a game manager as opposed to asking him to throw 40+ times a game. While the Bears’ defense hasn’t been as elite as recent years, they still do well to limit points despite being in the middle of the pack in yards allowed (14th passing and 16th rushing).
The Panthers will look to win this game on the back of Bridgewater. While Davis can certainly hold his own in the run game, the Panthers will look for Bridgewater to make things happen with his arms and legs. The difference in this game will be whether or not the Panthers can end drives with touchdowns instead of field goals.
Expect a lot of running and trying to control the clock in this game. For Chicago, the lower the scoring, the better. While the Panthers do move the ball well (sixth in total yards), they are just 20th in points. Their inability to capitalize on a higher percentage of their drives could be an issue in this game. Look for the Bears defense to keep this a lower-scoring game while Foles and company control the clock and edge out another close win.
