Bettors & Bookies Are Both Losing Faith In The Chicago Bears
December 31, 2012 in Gambling News
NFL sports bettors that have future bets pending on the Chicago Bears are nearly at their wits end as the season Bears is winding down. The Chicago Bears have pay per head bookies & sports bettors scratching their heads in disbelief about absolute collapse of the Bears in 2012.
The Chicago Bears under QB Jay Cutler started the season in fine fashion as they set the pace in the NFC North jumping out to a 7 and 1 record! And now the Bears find themselves in an end of the season slump and are currently fighting for a Wild Card. The Bears must win both of their remaining games to even have a shot at being a part of the 2012 NFL Playoffs on Wild Card Weekend!
In week 16 the Chicago Bears must travel to Arizona to face the 5-9 Cardinals who are coming off a 38-10 victory over the Detroit Lions. In that game over 70% of the betting pubic favored the Lions as the Cardinals went off as a 5 point home underdog and the Cardinals took care of business and absolutely dismantled the Lions. Well it is déjà vu all over again but this time it is the Bears who are coming to Arizona as a 5.5 point favorite. Currently 70% the public are betting on the Bears and the Cardinals will once again play the role of the home underdog, but they’ve seen this movie before!
The bottom line is; if the Bears lose to the Cardinals their season is over! Even if the Bears do pull out a victory against the Cardinals they then must travel to Detroit in week 17 to face a 4-10 Lions team whose only role can be that of playing the spoiler! The Bears head coach Lovie Smith is on the hot seat and is currently telling the Bears that for them the playoffs start this week!
In the first eight games the Bears scored an average of 29.5 points per game compared to 14.2 points per game over their last six games. If that’s not painting a dismal enough picture, the Bears will have to win without linebacker Brian Urlacher or running back Michael Bush. And that wasn’t enough Robbie gold is also out for the season.
If the Bears can win out and finish with a 10-6 record they do have a shot at the Wild Card but they will need some help to get there!
