The Seahawks (6-7) have actually been playing better football than the Chicago Bears (7-6) in the past few weeks, but the Bears are very solid at home and the Seahawks notoriously struggle on the road. Has the stink of Bears quarterback Caleb Hanie scared odds makers away from the Bears in Week 15? Actually, no. The line for the game opened with the Bears as 4-point favorites, and it has only fallen slightly to 3.5 in favor of the Bears even in the wake of the Sam Hurd distraction, according to OddsShark.
The Bears have had serious trouble scoring points or even looking like a professional NFL offense ever since Jay Cutler went down with a broken thumb, while the Seahawks have actually scored well lately by riding Marshawn Lynch early and often. The over/under for the game opened at 35.5 points, and has stayed firm since announced. It's hard to see this game reaching the over with the Bears offense playing so poorly, but remember that Devin Hester is always lurking for a big special teams return.
