49ers at Bears: Game preview, odds, prediction

CHICAGO, IL - DECEMBER 6: Alshon Jeffery
CHICAGO, IL - DECEMBER 6: Alshon Jeffery /

The San Francisco 49ers will host the Chicago Bears on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET in Week 13. Here is a game preview, the betting odds and game prediction.

Week 13 will feature a battle between two teams who might be better off losing. The Chicago Bears (2-9) will host the San Francisco 49ers (1-10) at Soldier Field. Whoever wins this game will likely be in worse shape to get a higher draft pick while the loser will most likely get a better one.

The Chicago Bears have lost four games in a rwo. Not only is their quarterback situation in shambles with Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer out, Alshon Jeffery is still suspended for a few more games, so that accounts for most of their offense. While their defensive has been decent, the offense, especially the passing game, has been extremely unproductive.

On the other side of the field, San Francisco has now lost 10 straight games after winning their Week 1 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. They will be starting Colin Kaepernick at quarterback, and while he hasn’t been terrible, Kaepernick hasn’t been good enough for the 49ers to win. That’s more due to his teammates than anything else.
