NFL Week 11 Betting: Chicago Bears @ San Francisco 49ers Pick and Prediction

On Monday Night Football in Week 11 – the Chicago Bears will head out west and take on the San Francisco 49ers. This game is a battle between two divisional leaders – as the Bears lead the NFC North and the 49ers are in the lead atop the NFC West. The Bears are coming off a loss to the Houston Texans, while the 49ers played in a tie against the St. Louis Rams at home. These two teams are both seeking a postseason spot out of the NFC.

The San Francisco 49ers are looking into whether their quarterback Alex Smith can play in this game or not. Smith left the game against the Rams in the first half with a concussion. In the recent game against the Rams, the 49ers had a chance to win it, but David Akers missed a field goal. San Francisco was fortunate to not be beat on several occassions, and settled with the tie. Frank Gore, the running back from San Francisco has rushed for 753 yards and 5 touchdowns through 9 games. The 49ers play two straight road games after this; at San Francisco and St. Louis.

The Chicago Bears are also questionable whether their quarterback Jay Cutler will play or not. Cutler also left the game with a concussion in the Sunday Night loss to the Texans. Chicago ranks 30th of 32 teams in the league with 189.8 passing yards per game. Cutler’s top target has been Brandon Marshall, with 904 yards and 7 touchdowns. Chicago’s defense leads the NFL in turnovers, including five in their most recent win over the Tennessee Titans. The Bears will come home and host Minnesota and Seattle after getting back home from this West Coast trip.

Well, this should be a very interesting game. The oddsmakers had a tough job with this game, especially with both teams having quarterbacks as questionable for this game. Cutler and the Bears offense is better overall than Smith and the 49ers. In the end, the defenses will have to come up strong, and we feel the 49ers will be able to beat the Bears at their own game – turnovers. The Bears turn it over more than the 49ers and San Fran wins.

Prediction: San Francisco 49ers 24-20

The San Francisco 49ers are a 3.5 point favorite in this game. San Francisco feels like they are a team that can get to the title game within the NFC. Chicago has proven that they can play with the best of them; but have struggled against the top teams. The two Bears losses have come to the Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans. In the end, we feel the San Francisco 49ers will be able to barely cover the spread over the Chicago Bears.

Pick: San Francisco 49ers -3.5
