NFL Week 8 Chicago Bears vs. San Francisco 49ers same-game parlay picks and predictions. Don't miss how NFL expert Mike Spector is playing this one.

Chicago Bears vs. San Francisco 49ers Same-Game Parlay Picks

The San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears are seemingly in free-fall mode, as the two teams have lost six consecutive games between them. And while the Bears have already committed to rookie quarterback Justin Fields going forward, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is routinely asked questions every week if and when he will move from veteran Jimmy Garoppolo to rookie Trey Lance. Yet, despite their turmoil, each team is within 1.5 games of the NFC's last playoff spot at the moment, which is a position held by the 3-3 Vikings.

Which team will end their losing streak, and how does each team's quarterback situation factor into this week's game? Find out with our two-leg same-game parlay that pays odds of +239.

Same-Game Parlay 1st Leg: San Francisco 49ers by 1-13 Points (4-way Winning Margin)

Our first play is a moneyline wager of sorts, which suggests the 49ers will be victorious over the Bears, but by less than two touchdowns. Chicago is coming off a 38-3 shellacking against Tampa Bay, who have been putting it on everybody at home, winning their previous two home games by a combined 51 points. One could argue that San Francisco's 30-18 home loss to the Colts was worse, given that they were favored in the game and because of Kyle Shanahan's words after the game.

When asked immediately after the game if Shanahan was going to stick with Garoppolo as his starting quarterback, he said, "I would guess so." A day later, he confirmed that Garoppolo would indeed be his starter but added that he was coming off "his worst game" of the season. Those are not exactly the encouraging words one wants to hear from their head coach when trying to end a four-game losing streak.

However, the Bears are not without their share of controversy, as head coach Matt Nagy tested positive for coronavirus earlier in the week. Though no other positive tests have surfaced yet, there is always the concern that some positive tests may arise in the future. Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor will lead the team meetings while Nagy quarantines. We recently saw Arizona overcome the COVID-19 related absence of head coach Kliff Kingsbury in a dominating road win at Cleveland. The Raiders also won two straight games after head coach Jon Gruden resigned, so the blueprint is there for Chicago to overcome Nagy's absence. However, both of those teams have Kyler Murray and Derek Carr at quarterback, while Bears quarterback Justin Fields is not at that level.

The tipping point in deciding who would win this game is the news that broke Wednesday morning that Chicago would be without star linebacker Khalil Mack. Mack is being given time to rest his ailing foot, and placing him on injured reserve is already being discussed. However, he leads the team with six sacks, and the Bears' ability to pressure the quarterback takes a big hit without his presence.

San Francisco started the season with consecutive road wins and narrowly upset the Cardinals in Trey Lance's first start. Thus, we trust that they will be able to defeat an undermanned Bears team at Soldier Field.

Same-Game Parlay 2nd Leg: UNDER 45.5 (Alternate Total Points)

The 49ers are sticking with Garoppolo at quarterback out of necessity, but his calf injury still looks like a big issue. Though the elements had a lot to do with it, San Francisco could not take advantage of a Colts secondary that was without two of their top cornerbacks and one of their starting safeties last week. Tight end George Kittle's absence has a massive impact on this passing attack, as wide receiver Deebo Samuel is the 49ers' only real threat in the passing game.

Chicago's offense has averaged just over 12 points per game over their last three games. As a result, the Bears have needed to win games on the back of their strong defense. But that unit desperately needs the services of Robert Quinn, who missed last week's game as he was on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Quinn is second on the team with 5.5 sacks, and his ability to put relentless pressure on the quarterback takes opposing teams out of their rhythm offensively.

The under has cashed in Chicago's last six games and is 5-2 in San Francisco's last seven road games. We are moving this over/under six points with this alternate total, further ensuring our chances of cashing this leg of the parlay.
