Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks Odds

Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks odds were in most demand of any other NFL game early in the week heading into the third weekend of this young NFL season.  The Bears were mostly a -2 to -2 ½ road favorite after opening at -1.  The -2 could still be found at BetUS.com.

The heavy early action on Chicago was the result of news that Seahawks quarterback, Matt Hasselbeck, suffered a fractured rib on Sunday and likely will not be playing.  This is the same injury that has sidelined Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Donovan McNabb.  The early action on the Bears was near 100 percent, hence the reason why this line is being driven up so quickly.

The home team has won the last four in this series and both teams have alternated wins with Seattle enjoying a 7 point victory the last game to be played in 2007. 

Chicago traditionally does not play well Against The Spread after a Straight Up win.  They are 7-19-2 ATS in such a scenario.

The Bears are 1-6-2 ATS in their last 9 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game.

The Bears are 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a road favorite of 0.5-3.0.

The Seahawks are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss.

Seattle is 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games following a S.U. loss.

The Seahawks are 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 home games.

All great trends for Seattle but they are also 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a home underdog of 0.5-3.0.

Matt Hasselbeck is doubtful but backup Seneca Wallace has actually played fairly well the past few seasons with a rating over 80 with 23 TDs vs just 13 INTs.  While his record is not great, his passer stats are actually superior to an injured Hasselbeck in 08-09.

Some important things to note in this game:

An effective ground game by Chicago should slow down Seattle's pass rush.

Seneca Wallace is more mistake-prone than Hasselbeck and Chicago should take full advantage.

Seattle must run the ball more effectively than they did last week against San Francisco.  They managed 66 yards against St. Louis the previous week, resulting in a shutout.  That won't be an easy task against Chicago.

The Seahawks have a lot of pass rushers that can pressure the quarterback.
