CHICAGO BEARS @ LOS ANGELES RAMS

One of the favourites to make the playoffs start the season at home on MNF against a Bears side that scrapped into the playoffs last year but have an upwards battle if they’re going to repeat that feat in 2021. 

The Rams made a bold acquisition in the offseason, giving multiple first-round picks and Jared Goff to Detroit in return for Matthew Stafford. The former Lions QB gives the Rams more talent and improved physical tools, at the position and pushes an already talented roster into real Super Bowl contender status. 

The Bears drafted Justin Fields in the first round of the NFL Draft, and whilst Bears fans are desperate to see him take the reigns, it appears Matt Nagy is adamant that Andy Dalton is the starter, and he’s in for a tough first assignment against a stacked Rams defense that arguably boasts the two best defensive players in football. At least he’ll have Allen Robinson to throw the ball too. Robinson had 70 yards receiving in the meeting between these two teams last year, and in fact, had 70 or more receiving yards in 12 games last season, so to be getting his O/U Receiving Yards line at 61.5 yards I think is about 10 yards too short. 

Spread: Rams -8

Total Match Points line: 46.0

Game Prediction: Rams 27 – 17 Bears

Best Bet: Allen Robinson over 61.5 receiving yards @ 5/6 with SkyBet. [0.5]
