WGM’s Best Bets: Monday 19 September 2016

Written by Ben Blaschke

The Chicago Bears head into their first home game of the NFL season as slight favorites when they host the Philadelphia Eagles, but we’ve seen nothing from them to suggest a better year than last in 2016/17. Having won just six of their 16 games last season, the Bears kicked off their new campaign with a loss to the Texans and their recent home record doesn’t exactly provide any solace – they’ve lost 10 of their past 11 home games including their last five straight.

01-08-15-2By contrast, Philadelphia’s rookie quarterback Carson Wentz impressed in leading his side to a 29-10 win over Cleveland last week in a highly promising debut. We like his chances of a repeat performance against the Bears.
