- Thanks to cold and windy conditions, the Thursday Night Football over/under is on the move.
- We detail how the weather forecast at Soldier Field and what it means for bettors below.
- Hint: It is impacting how you should approach the Cowboys vs. Bears showdown.
Temperatures are dropping and winds are whipping across the country. With the official start of winter right around the corner, bettors need to take note of NFL weather, especially games expected to be played in wet and windy conditions.
Five NFL Week 14 games are already popping with double-digit winds, which is a key threshold for bettors.
According to Bet Labs, NFL games played in winds of at least 10 mph have gone under the total 56.3% of the time since 2003, including a 27-16 (62.8%) win rate this season.
This makes sense as strong breezes can make connecting on long, explosive passing plays more difficult. Gusty winds also make the field-goal kicking game much more challenging.
Tonight’s Cowboys vs. Bears game on Thursday Night Football is one of these five games, meaning bettors should be familiar with the conditions before making actionable decisions.
Let’s take a detailed look at the Cowboys vs. Bears weather forecast.
Cowboys vs. Bears Weather Forecast
It’s obviously not breaking news that Soldier Field is in store for ugly weather in December, but the important information for bettors is the severity of the conditions.
According to Sports Insights’ weather data, 11-12 mph winds are expected for Cowboys vs. Bears, eclipsing the all-important double-digit mark. The National Weather Service agrees, calling for gusts up to 20 mph.
It’ll also be quite cold, with low temperatures dipping into the mid-30s.
