NFC rivals battling for the top of their respective divisions clash Sunday as the Chicago Bears (2-1 SU, 1-1-1 ATS) visit the New York Giants (2-1, 2-1). The Bears sit in a three-way tie atop the NFC North after knocking off the visiting Houston Texans last weekend. The Giants are coming off a loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football but remain just one game off the pace in the NFC East.

Bears vs Giants Opening Odds

The Giants have held steady since opening as 3-point home favorites on the NFL Week 4 odds. The total is also unchanged since opening at 39.5. Sunday afternoon’s matchup marks the fifth meeting between these teams in as many seasons. The Bears romped to a 29-3 victory as 6.5-point home chalk when they hosted the Giants in Week 17 last season, extending their current head-to-head win streak to three games.

However, it is the Giants who have been the more reliable bet when these teams meet, covering the spread in six of their past eight clashes. New York has also won and covered in each of the Bears’ past three visits to the Big Apple, while limiting Chicago to just 15.3 points per game over that stretch. Recent dates between these squads have tended to be low-scoring. The total has reached 40 only twice over their past eight matchups, fueling a 6-2 run for the UNDER.

Fields Under Pressure Following Career-Worst Performance

The Bears seized the early lead but ultimately needed a late field goal to seal last week’s 23-20 victory over the Texans. With the win, Chicago remains deadlocked with Green Bay and Minnesota with identical 2-1 records. However, the Bears still have a long way to go before they can claim to be divisional contenders.

After being limited to just 70 passing yards in the previous weekend’s humbling 27-10 loss to the Packers, Justin Fields struggled once again. The Bears pivot guided the team on long scoring drives in each of their first two possessions to take an early 10-0 lead. However, after compiling just 29 passing yards while getting sacked three times through the remainder of the first half, Fields and his teammates were booed by the hometown fans at halftime.

Overall, Fields generated just 106 yards on 8-for-17 passing for no scores and two picks, while getting sacked five times. Top rusher David Montgomery and receiver Byron Pringle were forced to leave the game with injuries, further depleting a Bears attack already struggling with injuries. Early reports on Montgomery’s status have not been hopeful. However, second-year rusher Khalil Herbert made the best of his sudden increased workload, running for 157 yards and two TDs.

Giants Receiving Corps Hobbled By Injuries

After eking out narrow victories with late scoring drives, the Giants had no response for a surprisingly dynamic Cowboys attack in Monday night’s 23-16 loss to Dallas. The tone was set on their first possession, which ended with a blocked field-goal attempt. And while the Giants atoned with a field goal on their next possession, they failed to capitalize on Cowboys miscues while playing catch-up all night. 

Daniel Jones endured another tough outing. The Giants quarterback failed to drive his team into the Dallas red zone while going 20-for-37 for 196 yards, no scores and one pick. And like his counterpart this weekend, Jones received little support from a New York offensive line that allowed him to be sacked five times for the second time in three outings.

The loss of receiver Sterling Shepard to a serious knee injury further depletes a Giants receiving corps that is already dealing with injuries to Wan’Dale Robinson and Kadarius Toney. The silver lining for the Giants is the continued strong play of Saquon Barkley, who contributed 81 rushing yards, one scoring run and 45 receiving yards on the evening.

Bears: Keys To Win

The pressure on Justin Fields has reached new levels in the wake of his worst NFL performance. The Bears pivot has completed just 23 passes through the first three weeks of the season and has only two touchdown passes against four picks. Simply put, not only does Fields need to do a better job of getting rid of the ball quicker, he also needs to show radical improvement in his passing accuracy. That said, he would certainly get a lift from better pass protection from his offensive line, and better separation from his receivers.  

Giants: Keys To Win

With the receiving corps hobbled by injuries and a porous offensive line forcing Daniel Jones to regularly pass on the run to avoid adding to his growing sack total, Saquon Barkley will once again be called on to carry the offense. However, with the Bears struggling on both sides of the ball, a commitment to defense and steady harassment of Fields could make the difference in this battle of beleaguered rivals.
