Giants vs. Bears Week 17 odds
Spread: Bears -6.5
Point total: 36
Moneyline: Giants +220, Bears -275
Our picks for Giants vs. Bears
Pick against the spread: Bears -6.5 (-110)
The Bears are going to be rolling with Andy Dalton at quarterback, which hasn’t gone well at any point in time this year. The Giants are playing backups across the board though, so it’s hard to pick them to keep this game close.
Over/under: Under 36 (-110)
This is going to be a brutal game to watch. It’s supposed to be a cold day at Soldier Field, which will lead to more emphasis on the run game. Both quarterbacks are less than stellar through the air, so this will be a sloppy affair where points will be hard to come by.
Preferred player prop: Kenny Golladay anytime TD (+300)
This is a high value play, as Golladay has not caught a touchdown pass all season. However, he’s the last Giants receiver standing at the moment and should get most of the team’s targets. It’s a high risk, high reward prop in an otherwise forgettable game.
