Eagles vs. Bears 12/18/22 Prediction and Odds
This showdown between two of American football’s most loved animals goes down at 6 pm on Sunday, December 18th, in Chicago’s brilliant 61,500-capacity Soldier Field stadium. Let’s look at the latest odds and predictions for this Eagles vs. Bears 12/18/22 tasty game these two will serve up.
Eagles vs. Bears 12/18/22 Preview Games and History
There are few fixtures with as much history as Eagles vs. Bears. The two first faced off against one another way back in 1933, when the two sides battled it out to a 3-3 draw. Hopefully, the fans didn’t pay too much for their tickets, with the scores being that low!
Eagles’ fans should’ve held onto what they had there, though, as the Bears would go on to win the nextten0 games, making the Eagles wait until 1948 until they got their first taste of victory. Philadelphia would continue to struggle in this fixture for decades, spending most of their time in losing streaks all the way up until the mid-90s.
Since then, the Eagles have done an impressive job of slowly clawing back toward parity in the series, although the overall record of 29-16-1 to the Bears means there’s still a lot of ground to make up. They’re also inching close on the total points scored, where the Bears lead 958-727.
Eagles vs. Bears 12/18/22 Odds and Statistics
These two teams first met in the postseason in 1979 for an NFC Wild Card game where the Eagles scored what was a rare victory at the time. The 27-17 win inspired the side to their first-ever 2-game win streak in the series, again coming out on top when they met in 1980.
They’ve also met in the postseason in 1988, 2002, and most recently in 2019 when the Eagles scraped by 16-15 to win another NFC Wild Card game. As far as modern history goes, the Eagles are certainly on top and have won 3 out of the four games the sides have played in the postseason.
Eagles vs. Bears 12/18/22 NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far
Philadelphia continues to fly and has few equals in football at the moment. Their current record of 10-1 is the best in the league, and most people’s money is on them making the Super Bowl.
Star player Jalen Hurts looks like he’s laser-focused on winning the MVP race this year and has been setting rushing yard records in the process.
Only the harshest of critics have pointed out tiny flaws in their defense, but it’s hard to find a side better than the Eagles.
Unfortunately for Chicago, the tone is very different. This season is now being seen as an opportunity for development, and the side isn’t competing for much more than future seasons.
Fans can look forward to a high pick in next April’s draft and, hopefully, a continuation of Justin Fields’ development. The team’s quality dips severely without him, and he’ll need to be kept injury-free and given more talent to work alongside if the Bears hope to improve their record next season.
Their record of 3-9 means they have the joint-most losses of any team this season.
Eagles vs. Bears 12/18/22 Prediction
There are only a few bigger mismatches in football right now than this Eagles vs. Bears 12/18/22, meaning there’s only one way this game will go.
