Chicago -2.5 vs. Baltimore — O/U 45
McCown or Cutler, the difference is negligible with this pair of receivers. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are physical beasts; give them an opportunity to make a play with ball in flight, and they’ll ‘box out’ and come down with it. The “Black Unicorn” could make his presence felt against a Ravens defense that can be had between the hashes. Safety play is not a strength for the Bears, which is a scary proposition against the wheels of Torrey Smith. Nevertheless, Baltimore can’t open a hole in the running game and that will ultimately lead to their (season) demise.
Prediction: 28-17 Chicago
