New England Patriots -3
Chicago Bears +3
The New England Patriots are coming off probably their biggest win of the season.
Last NFL betting lines Monday, the Patriots hosted the New York Jets in what was one of the most anticipated prime time NFL games in a while.
New England came out of the tunnel guns a’ blazing, scoring three times in the first quarter en route to a 24-3 lead at the end of the first half.
Things wouldn’t get any better for New York, as they were outscored 21-0 in the final thirty minutes, falling by a final tally of 45-3.
This week, the Patriots are matched up with another strong opponent; the red hot Chicago Bears.
The Bears have won all five games since their bye in week 8.
In the past three weeks, Chicago shut out Miami 16-0 on the road, defeated Michael Vick and the Eagles 31-26, and beat Detroit 24-20 last week – albeit on a questionable call.
Despite Chicago’s success this season, New England will walk away from this NFL betting lines matchup with a victory. The main reason being because the Bears have yet to face a pass attack as prolific as the Patriots.
The Patriots currently rank first in total points, averaging 31.6 per game.
Tom Brady has led his team to the league’s best record (10-2). Brady stands at the top of the NFL with a 109.5 passer rating, having thrown 27 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions.
New England running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis is having his best year as a pro. Green-Ellis has scored 11 touchdowns (T-2nd) and is averaging nearly 60 yards per game.
As usual, Brady and Company will rule the field for yet another easy win this NFL betting lines Sunday.
Marcello’s Prediction: New England Patriots: 34 Chicago Bears: 22
Messina Mention: New England has recorded 18 interceptions this season (T-2nd), spelling trouble for Jay Cutler who has already thrown 10 to date this year.
