Chicago Bears at New Orleans Saints

The Line: New Orleans Saints -8.5 -- Over/Under: 45
The Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints meet Monday night in a Madden20 simulation game.
The Chicago Bears rely heavily on the defensive side of the ball, as six of their top-seven ranked players are defensive players. Linebacker Khalil Mack leads the Bears with 98 overall rating while Eddie Jackson and Kyle Fuller make for one of the better secondary’s in the game. Surprisingly, wide receiver Allen Robinson is the Bears second best rated player at a 89 overall. Overall, it’s hard to get behind the Chicago Bears who have a quarterback in Mitch Trubisky who has a rating of 73 overall, which is the same as their punter Pat O’Donnell. The Bears defense should keep them in games, but you really lack confidence if this team gets behind early and has to rely on throwing the ball to get back in it.
The New Orleans Saints have five players ranked 91 or better overall in quarterback Drew Brees, wide receiver Michael Thomas, defensive end Cameron Jordan and offensive linemen Ryan Ramczyk and Terron Armstead. As if a solid offensive line and game changers at quarterback and wide receiver wasn’t enough, the Saints also have an 89 overall at running back in Alvin Kamara who also has a 94 acceleration rating. The Saints are able to flip a game quickly and with Brees having a 98 awareness rating, he’s not going to be fooled by the defense often. The Saints also have one of the faster secondary’s in the game with Justin Hardee, Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple all having speed and acceleration above 90 ratings, so you’re confident they won’t get beat deep often. The New Orleans Saints are easily one of the best teams to play with in Madden 20.
The New Orleans Saints are one of the more balanced teams in this game and have the potential to run away with things on any even game. I'm still not thrilled about laying tons of chalk in a simulation game where we see upsets daily and teams not understanding situations. You really have a lot of confidence in a matchup if laying big numbers with the computer playing the computer. I want the Bears and the boatload of free points.
