The Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears will face off in Week 15 for an NFC battle on Sunday, Dec. 18 at 1 p.m. ET.
The Eagles are 12-1, carrying what is by far the best record in the NFL into the waning weeks of the season. Meanwhile, the Bears have had yet another forgettable season to this point, putting together a measly 3-10 record thus far.
This is a clear-cut lopsided matchup despite the Bears getting the benefit of playing this game at Soldier Field.
Let’s take a look at some Philadelphia vs Chicago best bets, predictions, and betting tips for Week 15.
Eagles vs Bears Odds
All odds and lines are current as of Wednesday, Dec. 14, at noon ET and are courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook.
The Eagles are 9-point road favorites against the Bears, which is a reasonable line considering the disparity between these two teams. The Bears are looking at getting into the top 5 in the NFL Draft, while the Eagles are putting together one of the best seasons in franchise history.

The Bears would normally be unable to hang with the Eagles, but there is a chance of serious resting given that the Eagles have a virtual lock on the top seed in the NFC. Bookmakers understand this very real possibility and have adjusted accordingly.

Eagles vs Bears Prediction
Eagles 31, Bears 23
The Eagles are a heavy favorite in this matchup due to the lopsided results they bring to the table against the Bears. Chicago has lost a plethora of close games in recent weeks, with three of their past five losses being decided by three points or less.
The Bears should be able to keep this game considerably close to the spread and could squeak out a cover by a small margin.
Chicago’s offense is decent enough to put up a solid amount of points on the board, but their defense lags well behind. The Eagles can exploit this with ease if they simply do what they have done all season long.
I expect Philly to win this game with ease, but for the Bears to hang tough and cover.
Eagles vs Bears Bet Tips
Here are a few Eagles vs Bears betting trends to consider before making your bets:
- The Eagles are 8-5 against the spread this season, but 2-4 ATS as a road favorite.

- Chicago is 2-2 against the spread as a home underdog.
Eagles vs Bears Best Bets
Bears +9 (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
This game has all the makings of a shootout, but with the likelihood of Philadelphia resting some key guys down the stretch to preserve them for their playoff run, I like the Bears’ chances of stringing together a backdoor cover.
Expect Chicago to cover, but not by much. Proceed with caution.

As previously mentioned, both teams have offenses that are capable of putting points on the board at a rapid pace. This game should wind up somewhere in the range of 50-55 combined points.
Given my final score prediction, I have this Over hitting by almost a full touchdown.
