There's a couple of trends that have me losing my money on the Jags here. Bears covering 2 in a row at home in the preseason  No, I'll take the Jags to pull of the upset on the road.

Jacksonville - 26                                        Chicago - 17

Jaguars +4                               over 42

Jaguars - Over

The schedule says take da bears. They play Seatltle in Seattle week 3.
They win this week and lose in Seatle. Game 4 for them won't matter.

Jax loses the next two and win their finale at home. The win in Miami is huge for them. They only play 1 game at home and that's their last game. That's important for them. 

Thats what the schedule says. LOGICICALLY. 

but when the gut speaks you have to go with it. 

Thx to you I'm leaving this game alone. 

Sincerely.  GL to ya.

Oops on the jags.  They didn't play at mia. They played tb at home. Sorry for the misinformation. They play the next two on the road. Then come home for their last game. I would stil lean da  bears because of the schedule. Either way I stil won't touch this game.

Bears backup QBs looked great in first game.  And of course Cutler is superior to jags starter.  Bears have obvious advantage for the first few possessions with 1st team on the field.  Bears probably have a slight advantage with backups too..

The Jags have one thing going for them: They need to figure out a lot before the season starts and competition should be at a high level for many positions including QB.  Wanting to win means more means a lot in the preseason and Jacksonville probably has more of a desire to win.  They may not get a chance aside from pre-season haha.

24-17 Chicago is my prediction.  I liked their play in Week 1 quite a bit more than Jags preformance.

liked the jags at +4.....but got greedy and waited for the chitown backers to push it higher.....that plan back fired and now it's  @ +3  

Gonna sit on the fence until a little closer to game time....see when and what the big $ does to the line later on. 

GL guys......

So across all online books which I track the take, Chicago is taken almost 55% of the time.  On Covers, the public likes Chicago at a 65% clip.  Yet the line moved down a full point.  Both teams 1-0.  Both sides had nice QB outings.

A regular season matchup between these 2 in Chicago would have the Bears laying between 6 and 7.  Here it opened at 4.  The total is also higher than you would expect at 42' rather than maybe 38 or so.  I think this means defense plays a lessor role.

+3 JAX

Gl all,

I think Jags take this game. The line movement is funny, with 65% of folks on Bears but the line moves down from -4 to -3. The line is actually -2.5 on 5dimes. I'm gonna take the Jags +4 for -143. Little more juice but I think worth it.

I think Henne won't be as effective against Bears defense in 1st half. Bortles seem to have an up and down practice this week..as well as the recievers.. I don't know how well that translates to the game. but I see Jac offense struggling in this game. If they could only score 16 pts last game, I wonder how many pts they can score against the Bears? I'm seeing 13 pts at the most here

looks like Bears have a little more confidence going in. Clausen and Palmer are still battling for that backup position advantage at QB to Bears. Martellus Benett and Jared Allen will get a little piece of action tonight. the Bears gave up a lot of points against offensive minded Eagles but I just don't see this game being as high scoring.

24-13 Bears win
