The Chicago Bears will try to put the finishing touches on an undefeated preseason when they take on the Cleveland Browns this Saturday.

Bears vs Browns Prediction & Pick

It's been a tumultuous preseason for the Browns, to say the least, given the Deshaun Watson controversy swirling around them. It doesn't appear to have negatively affected their play too much, however, as they're only two points away from being 2-0.

The Bears are legitimately 2-0, however, and have done so against a tougher schedule. Beating Andy Reid and Pete Carroll is never easy, regardless of the circumstances.

As such, this should be a close game between two similarly-matched teams.

Final Score Prediction: Bears: 17 | Browns: 20

- The total has hit the under in five of Cleveland's last five games against Chicago.

Bears vs Browns Best Bet

Cleveland has the more talented team on paper, but Chicago has proven to be surprisingly frisky this preseason under new head coach Matt Eberflus. Second-year quarterback Justin Fields has provided a spark for the offense while the defense has played exceptionally well, allowing just 25 total points thus far.

Jacoby Brissett is a capable backup quarterback, but the Browns' offense is far less potent without Watson. Accordingly, the Bears' defense should be able to keep this game close and help Chicago cover the spread.

Bet: Chicago Bears +4.5 (-115)
