Houston Texans at Chicago Bears Betting Odds and Lines


The Bears lost against the Packers! You’d think that would be surprising but yet it isn’t. After taking their first loss of the season in Lambeau by 27-10 on prime-time Sunday night, Chicago will be looking to bounce back at home when they play the Texans.

For Houston, the chance to score its first win could see the Texans try to take over Chicago and leave with a road victory.

Given how they’ve played, tying their first game against the Colts and losing against the Broncos, could Week 3 be the one in which the Texans score their first “‘W”? Or will Justin Fields and the Bears make it 2-1?

Justin Fields Needs A Commanding Win ASAP

A lot is riding on Fields to show that he is the answer to Chicago’s QB conundrums. Fans and experts have been waiting for the second-year passer to hit the ground running.

But after two lackluster performances thus far this year, when will Fields break out and start leading the Bears to a brighter future?

In the first two games, it’s fair to say that Chicago has played all kinds of football, except for effective ball. They beat the Niners in a matchup riddled by rain and disorder.

Against the Packers, the Bears looked like they forgot they were actually in the game at times, allowing Aaron Rodgers to have yet another field day. Now against the Texans, a team from which not much is expected, there might not be a better chance to score a commanding win.

Not a lot has been said about Chicago’s roster, or at least not a lot of positive things. For many people, Chicago looks like a team stuck in a rut of not knowing whether to say it’s in a rebuilding process or not caring that much.

Still, in times of doubt, there have been a couple of Bears players that have shown signs of promise.

RB David Montgomery and WR Equanimeous St. Brown had good showings against Green Bay. If the Bears can manage to center their offense around what these two can bring, alongside the hopes of Fields picking up more and more momentum, Chicago could have a winning formula for Sunday.

Defensively, Chicago just needs to get its act together and play its usual, physical football. Avoiding small mistakes could be pivotal and above all, not giving Texans RB Dameon Pierce any room to exploit his talents.

Getting to Texans QB Davis Mills shouldn’t be much of an issue for the Bears, but stopping Pierce could end up being the key to a win at home for Chicago.

A Tie and a Loss, So Now A Win for Houston?

Even without having scored a win yet, the Texans have been playing some decent football, something not many would have expected.

Mills has taken to his post as starting passer for Houston and managed not to crack, showing some good things against the Colts and Broncos.

After tying at 20 each against Indianapolis and losing 16-9 against Denver, the Texans look like they might have just enough juice in them to go for a win at Soldier Field.

To do so though, instead of over-strategizing, coach Lovie Smith should focus on one simple thing. If the Texans can shift their attention to playing physical and simple football, that should help them bring the fight to Chicago.

Chicago’s secondary looked shaky at most times against Green Bay, which is exactly where Houston should focus its attack.

Given that the Bears’ front seven will be looking to take Pierce out of the picture as much as possible, focusing on a solid passing attack could bring great benefits for the Texans.

Playing at Soldier Field is never an easy outing for any visiting team. But between Smith’s experience – he used to coach the Bears, remember? – and the hunger to score a win to go 1-1-1, what’s left to lose?

So, 2-1 or 1-1-1 on Sunday?

The pressure for a win here is shifting more toward Chicago’s side, especially with Fields having to prove to the Bears’ fanbase that he can indeed carry this team as their franchise QB. That can either work wonders for Chicago or make them fall flat.

Still, while the Texans have shown some signs of better times to come, the win here should go to the Bears at home.
