Monday Night Football Betting Odds – Seahawks Vs. Bears Predictions
After week 1 losses, the Seahawks and Bears look to bounce back in week 2 when they meet on Monday Night Football. The Bears, in particular, have plenty to prove after letting a 17-0 lead get away last Sunday Night against the Green Bay Packers. The Seahawks just need to do a better job protecting QB Russell Wilson.
The betting line at Sportsbetting.ag opened with Chicago as a 3-point home favorite and the total at 45.5. The line moved half a point for a while, leaving the door open to find Seattle +3.5 at some point in the week, but it quickly went back to three points. The game total is now at 43 points.

What’s the latest Seahawks betting form to face the Bears?
The Seahawks had a lead early in the fourth quarter matchup against the Broncos, but it slipped away. Seattle was a 3-point underdog at Mile High and failed to cover the spread by losing 27-24. Head coach Pete Carroll has several issues to resolve. Number one is their pass protection. QB Russell Wilson was sacked six times by the Broncos defense and was running for his life most of the game. We knew the Seahawks offensive line was weak, but what they showed in week one was eye-opening.
I can’t blame Wilson for throwing three touchdowns and two interceptions against the Broncos. He was never comfortable inside the pocket. Seattle is asking Russell to be a one-man show on offense. Their running game was a no-show as well. They ran for 64 yards in 16 carries. I would love to say Seattle is going to fix their pass protection problems, but I don’t think they can in one week. Chicago’s defensive front sacked Packers QB Aaron Rodgers twice last week and backup QB, DeShone Kizer, another couple of times.
Their defense should have a field day against Wilson and that poor Seahawks O-line. At least the betting trends are on Seattle’s side. The Seahawks are a solid bet after failing to cover the spread. They are 10-3-2 ATS in their last 15 games following a straight up loss and 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 Monday games.
What’s the latest Bears betting form to face the Seahawks?
Chicago left Lambeau Field lamenting how they got that win slip away. They haven’t been in such a favorable situation against the Packers in a while. 17-0 up with one quarter left; their defense gassed out and their offense ran out of ideas. QB Mitchell Trubisky needs to ask for more confidence out of his new head coach Matt Nagy. Trubisky looked like a stud in the first two drives against the Packers. Then, they went ultra conservative and let the Packers came back to the game. When they needed Trubisky to bail them out, the second-year quarterback was out of rhythm.
The Bears might be successful on Monday Night if they give the ball to RB Jordan Howard early and often. Denver ran for 146 rushing yards last weekend without having a tailback like Howard in their backfield. A combination of a good pass rush led by DE stud Khalil Mack and a persistent running game should do the job for Chicago on Monday Night Football. The Bears are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Monday games and 9-3-1 ATS in their previous 13 home games. Since last season, they have been carrying a good betting form. Chicago is also 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
The play for the MNF game between Seahawks vs. Bears?
This is not an easy game to bet on. I don’t think the public has the confidence to bet the Bears just yet, although what they showed last week, at least in part, was exhilarating. Seattle is a one-man show with Russell Wilson trying to do everything with a soft offensive line. We know Wilson is a top-5 quarterback with plenty of magic still left in the tank. But Seattle is asking him to do too much. At one point I’m thinking he will be throwing the ball to himself. That’s how one-dimensional this offense is.
The logic says the Bears pass rush should dominate this game and make Wilson uncomfortable on every play. Chicago is a team trending up, despite not being ready to be inside the playoffs battle yet. Seattle is a team trending down and currently in a rebuilding stage. I’m confidence new head coach Matt Nagy will unleash a more aggressive Mitch Trubisky this week, and the Bears win 21-17. Swallow the points and take the home team.
