NEW ORLEANS SAINTS @ CHICAGO BEARS

The Saints are on their way to the Windy City riding a three game winning streak whilst the Bears look to bounce back from only their second loss of the season.

New Orleans got the better of their divisional rival Panthers last week but are still yet to win a game by more than a single score since their week 1 win over the Buccaneers and that’s partly because their pass defense has been poor this so far this season but luckily for them this isn’t a Bears team who can air the ball out although their passing offense is far superior to their run game which is the worst in the NFL and when you put that against the Saints top 5 run defense I wouldn’t expect Chicago to get much going on the ground here. The Saints Offense has been good even without Michael Thomas who has been missing since limping off early in week 1. Drew Brees is leading the league in pass completion percentage and is looking after the football with 11 TD’s against only 3 INT’s and one of the reasons Brees has been able to look after the ball is Alvin Kamara’s ability to not only run the ball but be a great underneath receiver which has lifted the burden of Thomas’ absence and Kamara has a good matchup here against the Bears run defense which is coming off a game in which they were gashed for over 160 yards against the Rams and haven’t been fantastic up front all year.

PREDICTION: SAINTS 28 – 23 BEARS

BEST BET: Alvin Kamara anytime TD – 8/13 with BetFair. 1 point bet.
