NFL Pick: Dallas Cowboys at Chicago Bears
- Updated: December 4, 2013
The Dallas Cowboys and the Chicago Bears are looking to make the NFL post season, but need some big wins to wrap up the season. The Cowboys come in riding high after a big come from behind win on Thanksgiving and will look to carry that momentum over to the big game with the Chicago Bears. The Bears are off a hard luck loss against the Minnesota Vikings and need a win to stay in the playoff race.
Dallas Cowboys at Chicago Bears Preview
The NFL odds for this game have yet to be put out as injuries are dominating the news. The Bears are unsure if they will have Jay Cutler back under center for this game, while the Cowboys have announced that linebacker Sean Lee will be back on the defensive side of the ball for this game. Make sure to check the latest point spread at the top rated off shore sportsbooks before placing a wager on this game.
Having Lee back on defense will be a big deal for this Cowboys team. Lee, who is second on the team with 93 total tackles, suffered a pulled left hamstring during Dallas’ game against the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 10. He had been projected to miss three or four weeks, but he increased his rehab in an effort to rejoin the team sooner.
As far as the bears are concerned, Cutler reiterated his goal to return for the club’s matchup against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football, but indicated he hasn’t yet received clearance from the team’s medical staff after suffering a severe high ankle sprain on Nov. 10. If he is back, it will make a big difference for the Bears.
The latest football betting trends for this game reveal that both teams have negative wagering angles for this game.
