4-1 In NFL Sunday - The Winning Continues Tonight
My Best Bets Football Club Won With Two Underdogs Yesterday To Push Its 2018 NFL Record To 5-0 And Is Primed To Win Seahawks At Bears Tonight
The Seattle Seahawks (0-1-0) and the Chicago Bears (0-1-0) are both on the rebound after suffering heart-breaking losses in their openers—the Seahawks, 27-24 to Denver and the Bears, 24-23, at Green Bay after blowing a 20-0 fourth quarter lead. Obviously neither wants to open the season 0-2 and will fire their best shots tonight.
In handicapping this game, it quickly became obvious the process produced more questions than answers. Still I believe I have found the edges that will put one of these teams in the winners circle and you can take down the money with a Best Bets Football Club 15-unit play.
You can win the game for just $10, charged to your major credit card or to you Pay Pal account. Better yet get on board for the entire Best Bets Football Club college and NFL seasons for just $199. Again, all credit cards and Pay Pal accepted.

SEATTLE (0-1) at CHICAGO (0-1) - 8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN
Don't 'ya just love when folks declare that the Seattle Seahawks' "window" is closing ... or has, in fact, already closed? Truth is the above-mentioned QB Wilson (see 298 yards passing with 3 TDs / 2 INTs in last week's back-and-forth 27-24 loss at 3-point favorite Denver) still is very much in the prime of his gridiron career but it's hard to say whether or not the rest of the Seahawks will "show up" here at Soldier Field:
Consider that this leaky Seattle O-line must hold the fort against a new-and-improved Bears' defense starring OLB Khalil Mack who spearheaded last week's defensive effort that produced four sacks, five tackles for losses and that pick six by Mr. Mack himself - and, still, that wasn't good enough as Chicago blew a 20-0 second-half lead to the GB Packers.
One major key here is how the Seattle defense - one that is far removed from "Legion of Doom" fame - handles second-year Bears' slinger Mitchell Trubisky who had a silent second half in last week's loss-but-cover at Lambeau.
Spread Notes - Seattle is a dreary 7-12-2 versus the vig away while dating back to late in the 2015 campaign; Chicago's a dead-even but vig-losing 6-6-1 ATS in its last baker's dozen games following a showdown with archrival Green Bay. However, note that the Bears are a 10-5-1 at home since the start of 2016.
In other NFL Week 2 News / Notes ...
The Dallas Cowboys' workmanlike 20-13 win/cover against the 2.5-point underdog NY Giants last night featured plenty of Mr. Manning on his back (see six sacks and a ferocious open-field hit by LB Jaylon Smith) as the dreadful Jints' offensive line was exposed for a second straight week. And, hey, we ain't blaming the loss of Giants' WR Odell Beckham Jr. but wasn't that the quietest 4-catch /51-yard receiving game you've seen in a long, long time? ...
Okay, so you heard all the TV talking heads reveal the fact that since 1990 some "62 percent" of NFL teams that started out a season 2-0 SU (straight-up) go on to make the playoffs but betcha didn't think the here-and-now Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be one of the seven NFL squads with a perfect record after two weeks of play (see also the Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams and Miami Dolphins).
True, fill-in QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (402 yards passing, 4 TD strikes and one hairy chest) has been an absolute godsend for Tampa Bay while stepping in for the suspended Jameis Winston but while you're doling out kudos let's not forget that T-Bay nowadays sports an hellacious pass-catching corps that stars WR DeSean Jackson and Michael Evans (a combined 14 receptions worth 212 yards and two TDs) and thus the Bucs have started off their season 2-0 ATS (against the spread) for the first time since 2012. P.S., Tampa Bay's not made it to the post-season since 2007 ...
No doubt that NFL Week 2 underdogs were "lights out" - pups pounded out an 11-4 ATS mark including last night's aforementioned 20-13 Cowboys win against the 2.5-point dog New York Giants and so we'll enter this evening's Seattle at Chicago clash with NFL Betting Favorites at 11-18-1 ATS with one Pick 'Em game and so far the back-to-back dog winners in this year's NFL have included Cleveland, Kansas City and above-mentioned Tampa Bay.
