Chicago Bears +12.5 (-110)

To say the Bears need to show some fight would be a massive understatement. They’ve been embarrassed in each of their first two games of the season, and have dealt with a slew of negative off-field stories this week. Matt Eberflus’ seat is starting to heat up and a lot of people are ready to declare that Justin Fields isn’t the quarterback of the future. The whole team desperately needs to at least show a little bit of resolve, and I think they’ll rise to the occasion against a Chiefs team that hasn’t exactly looked all-world this season.

Kansas City surprisingly lost at home to the Lions in the 2023 season-opener, and last week they put up only 17 points in a victory over the Jaguars. With their offense looking as disjointed as it has (they scored only 20 against Detroit), it’s hard to see them covering -12.5 spreads.

The Bears have been a mess, but there’s enough talent on the roster for them to hang in this game. There’s a reason why there was a ton of optimism surrounding Chicago entering the year, and it’s important not to overreact to two disastrous games. Which brings us to the next leg of our parlay…

Justin Fields to throw for 250+ yards (+680)

Justin Fields probably has more to prove this week than any other player in the NFL. Hyped as a potential MVP candidate entering the year, it would have been hard for things to have gone much worse through the first two weeks of the 2023 campaign for the young signal-caller. The knives are out, and just about everybody is ready to label him a bust. He’ll have a huge chip on his shoulder, and I expect him to play a lot more freely.

This total might seem sky-high for him, but he has shown plenty of flashes of higher ceilings in the past. In two of his final three starts in his rookie campaign, he threw for at least 285 yards. He’s capable of having bigger passing days, and with DJ Moore now at his disposal after an offseason trade he should be set up better.

The plays are there and guys have been open, Fields has just been holding the ball too long and taking bad sacks. If he actually just sits back and lets it rip like he has said all week that he’s going to, he should have some success.
