Time: 8 p.m. ET

Week 2 of the NFL preseason kicks off with a showdown between the Chicago Bears and Seattle Seahawks. The Bears enter this game feeling great about themselves following a solid 19-14 comeback victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks hope to rebound after coming out on the wrong side of a 32-25 shootout against the Pittsburgh Steelers over the weekend. Considering how Seattle was outscored 14-0 in the first quarter, Pete Carroll's squad needs a better start on Thursday.

The Seahawks enter this contest as the favorite on the moneyline and the spread. This 8 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 39.5, which is about average as far as this week's NFL projected totals go.

Bears vs Seahawks Prediction & Pick

While the Bears managed to defeat the Chiefs, it's important to point out that Chicago trailed 14-0 at halftime. Considering how bad Chicago's offense is projected to be, there's a good chance of that sort of start happening again, especially against a Seattle defense that gave up only 21.5 points per game in 2021 (No. 12).

Meanwhile, the Seahawks offense didn't look too bad last week despite sitting out key players, such as DK Metcalf. If bother Metcalf and Tyler Lockett can see some significant playing time this week, the Bears don't exactly have any playmakers too much their potential production.

Even with the Seahawks losing last week, I like how they looked and their depth better than what the Bears have this year.

Final Score Prediction: Seahawks: 24 | Bears: 13

Bears vs Seahawks Betting Trends

- Chicago is 4-9 against the spread (ATS) in its last 13 games.
- Seattle is 1-4 ATS in its last five games played in August.

Bears vs Seahawks Best Bet

All NFL preseason betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

As mentioned before, I think the Seahawks are the better overall team here, boasting an offense that the Bears might not be able to match. Considering how Chicago is also 2-4 ATS in its last six games against Seattle, I believe that the Seahawks have what it takes to cover the 3.5-point spread.

Bet: Seahawks -3.5 (-110)
