NFL Week 15 Cash-In
Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns
Line: Chicago -1, O/U: 43.5

The Match-Up:
Chicago comes into the game battling for their playoff lives. There has been a ton of controversy this week surrounding who should start at quarterback for the Bears. Josh McCown has led the team in recent weeks and has done a remarkable job in doing so. He has the highest QBR in theNFL over the last three games and looks like a guy ready to lead a team into the playoffs. Jake Cutler is in the final year of his contract and coming back from a series of injuries. He has been the guy in Chicago for a while now and they have a tough decision coming up as to who will takes those reins going forward. This week the Bears head to Cleveland with Cutler at the helm to take on a Browns team who is coming off a very emotional loss on the road to New England in the final minutes. Jason Campbell has been a nice spark for the the Browns and has really grown a strong rapport with WR Josh Gordon who is having a career year. They will be going up against a very injury depleted and suspect Bears defense this week which should allow for the two to hook up early and often.

Trends:
The Bears are 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 games.
The Bears are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games.
The Browns are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
The Over is 10-3 in the Bears last 13 road games.
The Over is 4-1 in the Browns last 5 home games.

The Verdict:
As bad as the Bears defense has been, the offense has been equally good. They need this game to hang onto whatever slim playoff hopes they may have left. They will be motivated and going against a team that is already playing for next season. Forget the trends. Expect the Bears to win and continue their quest next week.

Pick: CHICAGO -1
