The Ravens are 7-6 but could still make the playoffs if things go well for them in the last three games. They are 10.5 point NFL betting favorites in this game against Chicago.
Football betting has seen the Ravens be very inconsistent this season alternating wins and losses in the last seven weeks. Last week they were very impressive in a 48-3 football betting rout of Detroit. The Ravens are expected to beat the Bears in football betting and make a playoff run but they definitely can’t afford a letdown. "We're most interested in how we play. That's the bottom line. That's what we have to concern ourselves with,'' coach John Harbaugh said, "If we don't take of business against the Chicago Bears, first and foremost ... it's not going to matter what happens in those other games.'' The Ravens simply have to find a way to win consecutive football betting games. "It's good to get a win and get some help from other teams,'' defensive tackle Kelly Gregg said, "More importantly, we have to win two in a row. That's what we're focused on now.''
Baltimore really has a schedule that sets up well for them to make the football betting playoffs and win. If they take care of the Bears, they would have two football betting games remaining against a Pittsburgh team that has been terrible lately and the Raiders. "We know what we have to do,'' running back Willis McGahee said, "We know we have to win the rest of our games, regardless of what happens.''
There are not many positives for Chicago in football betting. They have a quarterback in Jay Cutler who throws way too many interceptions and a weak running game and a below average defense.
