The Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints face off on Sunday in an NFC Wild Card showdown at Mercedes-Benz Superdome. 

The New Orleans Saints have to be feeling lucky that this game is being played on Sunday instead of Saturday. If this game would have happened on Saturday Alvin Kamara would not be playing being of COVID, so this is a blessing for them There still isn’t a guarantee that he is going to play in this game, but this at least gives him a chance. On the season the Saints are averaging 30.1 points per game while their defense is giving up 21.1 points per game. Quarterback Drew Brees has dealt with a lot but he hopes he can have another run at a Super Bowl. In the last game against the Carolina Panthers he threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns. On the season the Saints are averaging 30.1 points per game while the defense is giving up 21.1 points per game. A couple turnovers by the Saints defense would go a long way in this game.

On the other side of this matchup is the Chicago Bears who lost their Week 17 game against the Green Bay Packers, but got some help, and now are in the playoffs. The Bears had won three games in a row before their last loss. On the season the Bears are averaging 23.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 23.1 points per game. On the season, Mitchell Trubisky has thrown for 2,055 yards, 16 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Running back David Montgomery has also had a big season rushing for 1,070 yards and eight touchdowns. In this game Trubisky is going to need their defense to step up in a big way.

The Bears are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight playoff games. The over is 11-5 in the Bears last 16 games in January. The Saints are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games overall. The over is 7-2 in the Saints' last nine games played on fieldturf. 

I don’t trust Trubisky at this point, and I think turnovers are going to be a problem for him in this game. Look for the Saints offense to move the ball and the Bears will have no answer in this game. Back the Saints to win this game and cover the spread.
