San Francisco have lost 2 in a row, but they held their own against Arizona. Chicago is 5-6 after a big win in Green Bay, and the playoffs aren't out of the question if they keep winning.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -7 +104 at Pinnacle
The Bears opened up as a touchdown favorite at home and that is where the NFL odds have stayed as Chicago has now won three of their last four. They'll be kicking themselves for losses at Detroit, and at home to Minnesota and Denver, all of which by three points or less. However, the win over Green Bay on Thanksgiving, on the road as the Packers retired Brett Favre's number will be their Super Bowl win if Chicago doesn't go to the playoffs. The 49ers are still terrible offensively with Blaine Gabbert under center, but they're showing glimpses of potential and their defense can be tough on its day. Don't expect a lot of points in this game as the Bears are 24th in points scored and the 49ers are dead last by a solid margin.

Injuries
RB Carlos Hyde didn't practice on Wednesday on his injured foot, while TE Garrett Celek left the Arizona game because of his ankle. LB Michael Wilhoite also didn't practice with a bad ankle, but the 49ers got to see LB Ahmad Brooks, who missed the last game with a concussion. LB NaVorro Bowman also didn't practice, ut he usually doesn't on Wednesday.

The Bears should have TE Martellus Bennett back in the lineup after he missed his first game in three years with a rib injury, but he practiced on Wednesday. The news wasn't so good with WR Eddie Royal (knee) and S Antrel Rolle (knee), who both sat out practice.

 

Trends
The 49ers are 5-6 ATS this season, but they're 1-4 ATS on the road. The Bears are 7-4 ATS, and 2-3 ATS at home this season. The total has increased from 41.5 to 43, and the 49ers have gone under six times. The Bears have gone under seven times. As was mentioned before, this figures to be a low-scoring affair given what the two offenses have done this season.

These two have split their last 10 meetings SU, with the 49ers covering six times. In Chicago, the Bears are 6-1 SU and 3-3 ATS in seven meetings with the 49ers.
