Welcome to the home of Bears Rams NFL betting for Week 1. The Chicago Bears will kick off their season with a trip to Los Angeles to take on the Rams in the first Sunday Night Football game of the year. The game will be played at SoFi Stadium and it is scheduled to begin at 8:20 PM. ET.
- Chicago Bears Predictions
The Bears traded for quarterback Nick Foles last offseason, hoping he would lead them back to the playoffs. However, they finished with an 8-8 record, which was good for second place in the NFC North. They drafted former Ohio State standout Justin Fields, hoping he will be their quarterback of the future, but will go into the season with Andy Dalton as their starter.
Chicago averaged 23.3 points per game last season. They threw for 228.4 yards and rushed for 102.9 yards per game.
Dalton spent last season in Dallas, filling in for an injured Dak Prescott. He completed 64.9 percent of his passes for 2,169 yards, 14 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. David Montgomery led the Bears with 1,070 rushing yards and eight touchdowns, while Allen Robinson II led the team with 1,250 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
Chicago’s defense wasn’t as effective as they were in recent years last season, giving up 23.1 points per game. They still have a lot of talent and will bounce back this season.
- Los Angeles Rams Predictions
The Rams finished last season with a 10-6 record, but they weren’t happy about their quarterback play and decided to trade Jared Goff to Detroit for veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford, who they hope can lead them back to the Super Bowl.

Los Angeles averaged 23.1 points per game. They threw for 250.9 yards and rushed for 126.1 yards per game.
Stafford completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 4,084 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in his final season in Detroit. Cam Akers led the team with 625 rushing yards and two touchdowns. He suffered a season-ending injury in the preseason, so Darrell Henderson Jr., who had 624 rushing yards and five touchdowns last season, will take his place in the starting lineup.
Los Angeles was the best defensive team in the league last season, giving up 18.5 points per game. They will need their defense to keep playing well if they want to make a deep playoff run this year.
The Rams are favored to win this game by 7.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 44.
The Bears have a new signal caller but it won’t make much of a difference against the Rams’ defense, who did a great job harassing quarterbacks and forcing turnovers last season. Even though the Rams will be better offensively, they will also face a tough test against Chicago’s defense, but with Stafford having a lot of experience against them, expect him to lead the Rams to the win, so go with Los Angeles to cover and the under.
