BEARS 7 POINT DOGS?

3

I’ll need someone to explain to me why the Bears are 7-point underdogs against the Colts. Granted, the line is there to generate bettors and not necessarily a true indication of how the teams matchup. But it still seems ridiculous that a 15-3 team that just won the NFC title game by 25 points would be 7-pt. dogs.

    My thinking here is that the NFC has been characterized (acccurately or otherwise) as the weaker conference all season.

    That said, your point is salient: In a sport where the “what-have-you-done-for-me-lately” mentality is rampant, how a team that completely outclassed it’s last opponent could be that much of an underdog is a quizzler.

    Grossman factor, maybe?

    It is the Grossman factor mang! The oddsmakers are looking back to the Dilfer era and think Rex is in the same boat. But Dilfer won mang! I don’t have a horse in this race, but I’d bet Bears all day long mang! Rest assured though that the Colts will run Addai all day long mang! Maybe 54 carries at least! Take da points and da Bears mang! FIRE MILLEN! DON’T TAKE A WIDE RECEIVER WITHT THE SECOND PICK!

    PB-

    Always entertaining, but I doubt Addai gets even 20 carries in this one.
