New York Giants vs Chicago Bears Prediction:

This matchup is between 2 young quarterbacks who are trying to prove that they are capable of playing in the most demanding position in the league. They will be hoping that they can be their team's torchbearers for years to come.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky is in a race against time after his team declined his 5th year option thereby turning this season into a make-or-break season for him.

While both the teams have mediocre offences, Bears are considered the favorites by Vegas (-250 ML) for this matchup due to their elite defense which is clearly stronger than the porus Giants' secondary.

Prediction: Chicago Bears to win thanks to their superior defence in a low scoring match
