Betting on the Chicago Bears (+6)
Regular Season Record: 5-1
If you’re still laughing at the Bears, then you are also laughing at a team that’s 5-1 through six games this season. Chicago isn’t a perfect team, obviously, but it’s surely is doing a lot of things right to get to such a record. Without a doubt, among those things is their defense, that was key in their 23-16 road win over the Carolina Panthers last Sunday. The Bears’ stop unit recorded four sacks and drew three turnovers (2 interceptions, 1 fumble) from the Panthers, who couldn’t get momentum in their passing attack. With Khalil Mack and Akiem hicks up front and the likes of Tashaun Gipson and Kyle Fuller hounding receivers downfield, the Bears have limited opponents to just 57.08 pass completion percentage — the best in the NFL. Chicago’s defense is good enough to keep the game close against elite offensive teams and give the Bears’ passable offense led by Nick Foles to fill the gaps. The Bears are also No. 1 in the NFL with just 1.5 touchdowns allowed per game.
The Bears are 3-0 against the spread in their last three road games.
Betting on the Los Angeles Rams (-6)
Regular Season Record: 4-2
The Rams are coming off a 24-16 road loss to the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday, thus preventing themselves from hitting a three-game win streak for the first time this season. Jared Goff passed for 198 yards and two touchdowns and an interception on 19-of-38 completions. Darrell Henderson led the Rams also with 88 rushing yards on 14 carries, though he might not be available to play this week due to a thigh injury that’s forced him to miss practices. If he can’t go, the Rams will turn to the duo of Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown to carry the duties in the team’s ground attack. Los Angeles needs its pass rush to reappear in this game after failing to put much pressure on Jimmy Garoppolo last week, when the Niners quarterback went untouched. That said, the Rams are still one of only five teams this season with at least 20 sacks generated.
The Rams are 2-1-1 against the spread in their last four home games.
The Rams win, 23-20.
