The Seattle Seahawks vs. Chicago Bears point spread was listed at Bears -7 across the board except for SBG Global, the online sportsbook online where Gambling911.com found a spread of -6 ½.
Well, we all know by now that the Seattle Seahawks can’t seem to play well on the road and, not surprisingly, more than 90 percent of the betting action is coming in on the Bears in this game.
Heading into Wednesday morning we are learning that Jay Cutler has been cleared to practice today and is expected to start for Chicago this coming Sunday.
The Bears are certainly one of the season’s biggest surprises and they currently lead the NFC North. They are listed with 28/1 odds of winning the 2011 Super Bowl (perhaps good value all things considered)
The Bears' performance at Carolina gave new meaning to "ugly win," but they found a way to stumble into first place, ESPNChicago.com's Jon Greenberg writes.
“If Jay Cutler were playing instead of the very mortal Todd Collins on a sunny, warm Sunday at Bank of America Stadium, the Bears might have won this game by 30.”
Seattle, meanwhile, had its bye last week. They got hammered by the St. Louis Rams the week prior.
The Rams sacked Matt Hasselbeck four times, had one interception and forced a fumble.
For the sports bettor there are some really important stats available that should be considered prior to betting on the Seahawks vs. Bears point spread.
Let’s be perfectly blunt here, the stats really go against Seattle in this game.
When playing with 2 weeks or more of rest, the Seahawks are just 4-16 since 1992. They are 5-16 after a bye week.
When playing against a team with a winning record, they are just 3-10 over the last three seasons. In fact, the Seahawks are 1-10 Against The Spread in their last 11 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
The Seahawks are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 vs. NFC.
They are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games as an underdog.
Seahawks are 8-21-1 ATS in their last 30 games as a road underdog.

One stat going against the Bears, they are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games as a home favorite of 3.5-10.0. – Tyrone Black, Gambling911.com reporting.
