Making sports betting picks is one of my specialties, and today at Cappers Info, I’m making my Sunday Football Tipster pick based upon the football trends and NFL odds for the Houston Texans vs. Chicago Bears game on Sunday, November 11th at Soldier Field at 8:20 p.m. ET.
Houston Texans (7-1, 6-2 ATS) +1.5
Chicago Bears (7-1, 5-3 ATS) -1.5
The very first point to make is that the weather in the Windy City is going to be absolutely atrocious today. The Bears have to loving the wind and rain that is going to be on tap, and the Texans have to absolutely have it. All hope isn’t lost for the Texans, though.
Remember that this defense is still ridiculously improved from two years ago for the Texans, and though they are a team that normally plays in hot and relatively ideal weather conditions, they have proven that they can win in the wind and the rain as well. Houston is built like a team that can grind it out with RB Arian Foster. Both of these teams can do the exact same thing though, as RB Matt Forte and RB Michael Bush are the two men that are going to be under the gun as well.
Of course, we know that the Bears have a defense that is absolutely legitimate, and this team isn’t going to go anywhere any time in the near future. This should be a defensive slug fest when push comes to shove, and I, for one, am puzzled as to why this ‘total’ is even in the 40s. The Texans have allowed a total of just 22 points in the last two games, while the Bears have held three of the last six teams to single digits in scoring. I’d be surprised if this gets beyond the low-30s between these two clubs.
