Saints Host Bears in NFC Wild Card Betting Matchup, Odds and Predictions

January 7th, 2021 NFL Football, Sports Betting

Although there’s a pandemic the NFL’s expanded playoff was already set for 2020. Chicago is this year’s NFL betting beneficiary. The Bears broke even for the 2020 campaign. Only the Washington Football Team has a worse record for the NFC playoffs. For all that the Bears problem remains what it’s always been. They have no offense. Which puts too much on the shoulders of their solid defense. So too is the Saints’ defense solid. Offensively Alvin Kamara can do it all for New Orleans. A lack of bomb threat wide receivers may hold the Saints back.
