Predictions For Texans Bears Betting – Showdown Is Set In Interconference Encounter

Posted by Tony Bryant on 11/8/2012 5:43:11 PM

The Chicago Bears and Houston Texans might not have the 8-0 record of the Atlanta Falcons, but they could very well be the two best teams in the National Football League.

Houston Texans @ Chicago Bears – Sunday, November 11    
Sport betting line: Pick 'em

Why Houston Will Win

If you want to make a winning bet on this game, here's why you might want to pick the Texans: Houston does what championship teams do: It runs and it stops the run. It is a tough, tough team in the trenches, one that can overpower and outlast opponents. Houston is, first and foremost, a team that is getting great line play on both sides of the ball. The offensive line is run blocking and pass protecting at a very high level right now, enabling Houston to be balanced and unpredictable on offense. Quarterback Matt Schaub is providing a very steady level of play, giving head coach Gary Kubiak the maturity that Houston has lacked in prior seasons at the quarterback spot. Arian Foster is an elite running back, and the Texans' receivers are getting open when they need to.

The defensive line for Houston has been just as impressive. The Texans have established a physical style of play, imposing their will and their brawn on opposing offensive lines in the first halves of most of the games they play. Opposing quarterbacks don't have much time to throw against coordinator Wade Phillips' defense, which has Houston at the top of the American Football Conference for many good reasons. The Bears' offensive line is going to have a tough time holding up against Houston's pass rush. Meanwhile, Houston has a much better chance of being able to run the ball with Foster than Chicago does with Matt Forte.

Why Chicago Will Win

When NFL betting students settle in and assess this game, they might consider the Bears for this reason: They are winning games in so many different ways. Chicago can score 41 or 51 points, as it did in wins over Indianapolis and Tennessee. The Bears can play gritty defense as they did in wins over Detroit and St. Louis.

They can come from 12 points behind in the fourth quarter as they did against Carolina, erasing a 19-7 deficit to take a 20-19 lead and eventually pull out a 23-22 victory. They can deliver knockout punches on the road against teams, as shown by their wins over Dallas and Jacksonville. This team is resourceful. It gets plays from so many different contributors, and it takes the ball away from opponents. This is a team with all the ingredients needed to fend off the Texans on Sunday night.

Playing at home, Chicago can disrupt Houston's offense, create confusion, and put itself in a position to pounce on turnovers by the Texans.

Who Will Win

The Bears are playing at home, but Houston is a team that's perfectly constructed for playing on the road. The Texans' ground game and their physical style will best the Bears, adding to Houston's chops as a real Super Bowl threat.
