49ers vs Bears Highlights

NFL betting odds are likely to fall heavily in favor of the 49’ers for the opening game at Soldier Field this year, with the Bears facing tough divisional competition as the season progresses and after a number of off-season losses, including veteran wideout Allen Robinson.

Although efforts have been made to replace his yards in the form of former Patriot N’Keal Harry and Kansas City’s Byron Pringle, there will be a lot of pressure on Justin Fields to produce in both the air and running game against one of the best defenses in the league in the San Francisco 49’ers. The 9’ers have struggled to retain some of their key talents in the off-season, losing strength in their offensive line in Alex Mack and Laken Tomlinson and letting go of the speed of running back Raheem Mostert, who struggled with injury throughout 2021.

Those betting on NFL Games should look to San Francisco to cover the spread, particularly as they avoid the cold winter air of Lake Michigan in the latter months of the year. All eyes will be on who the starting QB in San Francisco will be as the season progresses, with veteran Jimmy Garoppolo seeing a challenge from 3rd overall draft pick Trey Lance. Historically, this matchup brings more of a defensive masterclass than a gunslinging shootout, but it is difficult to say who will fire first this early in the season.
