2 units on Game Total UNDER 42.5 -105 (risk 2 to return 3.9) RESULT: LOSS
Seattle's defense struggled early on, but it has turned things around allowing 16.6 points per game over the last eight contests. That's bad news for a terrible Chicago offense that is 28th in total yards and points (17.1 per game). They are also 31st on third down (33.3%). Rookie QB Justin Fields (seven TDs, 10 INTs) is battling a sore ankle, and he and Andy Dalton have been sacked 45 times in 14 games, the second-most allowed in the NFL. The Bears are on a 9-4 run UNDER the total and are also 35-17 UNDER after a loss. Plus, Seattle is on a 10-3-1 run UNDER the total. The Seahawks' offense has allowed the fifth-most sacks and is 23rd in scoring, 22nd in rushing, and 30th on third-down (33.9%). Also, Seattle coach Pete Carroll is 26-12 UNDER the total after a loss by 10+ points. Go with the UNDER for a Max Play.
