The Wildcat returns for his 24th season in The Post. Including the 1997-2019 seasons in the Bettor’s Guide, Cat’s record in print stands at 636-537 (54.2 percent) against the spread.
Bears (+3.5) over VIKINGS
Chicago made some philosophical offensive adjustments prior to last week’s visit by the Texans, catering to Mitchell Trubisky’s evident gift of mobility. Houston has endured defensive attrition, and the Bears’ imaginative offensive deployments took full advantage. Should they maintain last week’s standard and their defense holds up, school’s out — especially with belated return of RB David Montgomery to the home side’s ground game. Bears finish boldly, for one unit.
Eagles (+6.5) over CARDINALS
Young Philadelphia signal-caller Jalen Hurts sparkled when he won his first Eagles start against the Saints at the Linc. A touchdown underdog, Hurts was stellar, going 17-for-30 passing for 167 yards and tacking on 106 rushing yards. Now Hurts makes his first road start, but given Arizona’s erratic form — having lost three of its past four and now outside of the NFC playoff picture — the pressure is on Kyler Murray. Fly, Eagles, Fly, for one unit.
Last Week: 1-1. Ravens (W). Raiders (L)
