Bears Panthers Betting – Carolina Has No Answer For The Raging Bears

The sports betting world was curious as to how the Carolina Panthers would eventually give rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen the ball as the starter. When season starter Matt Moore was injured and then deemed ineffective, the NFL betting experts got their wish and Clausen became the starter for the Panthers.

During the off-season, the Chicago Bears added defensive lineman Julius Peppers to their roster, and the watch was on to see if this was just a name move or if Peppers would contribute. It turns out that Julius Peppers is still a pretty good football player and the Bears are 3-0 because of it.

NFL Game Preview: Chicago Bears (-2.5) @ Carolina Panthers


Of all the NFL online sports betting scores that will be posted for week five, this game will probably be the most lopsided. Jay Cutler is on his way to a 4,000 yard and 25 touchdown season. He has thrown for almost 1,000 yards already and he is becoming adept at picking apart weak defenses like the one in Carolina. It has been all passing Chicago as running back Matt Forte has only put up 134 yard rushing so far this season. The only person capable of putting pressure on Cutler is Julius Peppers, but now that he is playing for the Bears, the Panthers have no teeth on defense.

Jimmy Clausen is trying, but the Panthers offense is so weak that there is not much Clausen and all-pro wide receiver Steve Smith can do. The Panthers can run the ball respectably with DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, but the offensive line is having problems sustaining a pass block and none of the Carolina receivers, with the exception of Smith, can get open.


The Bears defense is allowing only 17 points per game and is averaging 77 yards of rushing against them. With the addition of Peppers, the Bears have solidified their front seven on defense and now they are shutting down the run. However, they are still having problems in the secondary as they are giving up an average of 255 yards per game. That makes the Bears one of the worst pass defenses in the league.

There is a reason the Panthers are 0-4, and it is more than just their floundering offense. The Panthers defense ranks in the bottom half of the league in every category. They are allowing 334 total yards per game and giving up an average of 21 points. When your offense is only scoring an average of 12 points a game, you are not going to win many games playing that kind of defense.

Final Word:

The Bears’ pass defense will not be necessary against the Panthers offense. The Bears have more than enough to keep Clausen and the Carolina offense at bay. Jay Cutler should have another field day through the air, and Matt Forte may get a chance to break out for 100 yards or more in this game as well.

Pick: Chicago Bears
