2021 New Orleans Saints vs. Chicago Bears AFC Wild Card Round Betting Pick and Odds
The Saints cruised to a victory in Week 17 against Carolina, nearly missing a first-round bye which was secured by the Green Bay Packers.
Still, New Orleans finished with a 12-4 record and gets back a few key pieces this week in wide receiver Michael Thomas and running back, Alvin Kamara.
The Bears are lucky to be in the postseason after losing to Green Bay in Week 17. They needed a win or a Cardinals loss to make it into the playoffs.
Luckily, the Cardinals lost against the Rams, giving Chicago a playoff berth.

Bears Vs. Saints Betting Pick
I do think the Saints are the far better team here but this number has gotten too high.
The Bears are a frustrating team, especially their long drives that result in no points, but I do think they’re a better team than they were earlier in the season.
This is a situation where I’d happy to take the Saints under 10 points, but the value now has swung back over onto Chicago.
It’s not my favorite play of the weekend, but I do think there is a +EV wager to be had on the Bears here.
Pick: Bears +10.5
