42. Sunday, Oct. 31. 49ers -4. 2-4. Fox. 3-4. 57. 1 p.m. ET

The 49ers hope to right the ship against the Bears in Week 8, and Niner Noise breaks down the injury report, betting odds and how you can watch.

As Hall of Famer Steve Young told KNBR 680’s Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks Show on Wednesday afternoon, it doesn’t matter who the San Francisco 49ers start at quarterback in Week 8 when they take on the Chicago Bears.

All that matters is they “stop the bleeding.”

Now riding a four-game losing streak, that sounds like a good strategy. Considering how poor the Niners offense has looked during that streak, and how San Francisco’s defense has been inconsistent at best, facing off against a scuffling Bears squad that’s lost two in a row might be the perfect recipe to turn things around.

Especially considering Chicago’s premier edge rusher, Khalil Mack, will miss the game and could potentially land on injured reserve with a foot injury.

And while fans may not be treated to a high-profile matchup between two rookie quarterbacks, the Bears’ Justin Fields and the 49ers’ Trey Lance, as head coach Kyle Shanahan plans to start Jimmy Garoppolo instead, Young’s point still holds true.

The Niners simply need to win this road game.

49ers injury report vs. Bears Week 8

San Francisco is a little banged up heading into Week 8, and the following players showed up on the team’s injury report this week:

  • LB Azeez Al-Shaair (concussion): doubtful
  • EDGE Dee Ford (concussion): doubtful
  • DL Maurice Hurst (calf): OUT
  • DT Javon Kinlaw (knee): OUT
  • WR Deebo Samuel (calf): full practice
  • S Jaquiski Tartt (knee): OUT
  • T Trent Williams (ankle): questionable
  • QB Trey Lance (knee): full practice

Samuel’s limitations in practices seemed to be precautionary, while Lance returned to practice after sitting out Week 7 with a knee sprain. The Niners are also hoping to get Williams back after he missed Week 7, too, although rookie swing tackle Jaylon Moore performed well in his stead.

Kinlaw, meanwhile, had knee surgery and will miss the rest of the season, per Shanahan.

49ers vs. Bears odds, spread, over/under & betting pick Week 8

San Francisco hasn’t exactly been doing itself many favors against the spread in recent weeks, and losing games in which it was favored doesn’t help matters either.

That said, the oddsmakers over at WynnBET are still listing the Niners as 4-point favorites for this bout with their moneyline currently at -190. Chicago’s moneyline, meanwhile, is +170.

Week 7’s rain-soaked outing versus the Indianapolis Colts achieved that week’s over/under. And even though the Bears and Niners have both struggled to put up points as of late, going with the over in the 39.5 point line might be a safe bet.

And given the state of affairs for Chicago, let’s go ahead and predict San Francisco winning outright and covering the spread, 24-17.
