The other big NFL Week 1 point spread involves the San Francisco 49ers heading to Chicago to take on the Bears. San Francisco finds itself at -6.5.

Interestingly, this game will likely pit to 2021 first-round picks against one another. Selected No. 2 overall, Trey Lance is expected to take over for Jimmy Garoppolo as the 49ers’ starting quarterback. Meanwhile, Justin Fields will maintain his status as the Bears’ starter after he was selected No. 11 overall in 2021.
