How to bet the full Sunday slate

How cool would it have been if the Chicago Bears hadn’t started off the year so slow or not blown three fourth quarter leads in epic fashion? What if they could have held on to one of those games to make this week a play-in week against the Green Bay Packers? Or not blown any of them and been in a position to clinch the division and knock out the Packers at the same time? Alas, the Bears did blow those leads and do not have a shot at the playoffs this year. They do, however, have a chance to end the year on a positive note while knocking their rival out of the playoffs.

I don’t have any analysis at this point in the year. The Packers need this game, they’re at home, they absolutely have a coaching advantage. We’ve also seen this movie more than a few times. It’s probably not worth getting your hopes up for this one at this point. Smart money is on that team up north.

But I’m going Bears. I think they do it. This is a different team than the one that got stomped in the opener. Let’s do this thing.
