Seattle at Chicago
Monday 09/17 08:15 PM Eastern
1 unit on Seattle +4.5 (-102) (risk 1 to return 1.98) RESULT: LOSS
The rebuilding Chicago Bears are not ready for prime time with their young QB, blowing a 20-point lead last week. Second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky threw for only 171 yards and was terrible during crunch time in the second half. The Bears are 17-39-1 ATS after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game, as well as 5-16-1 ATS after allowing less than 90 yards rushing the last contest. They face a veteran Seattle quarterback and coaching staff used to winning, at home or on the road. The Seahawks dropped a close one in Denver last week, 27-24, as QB Russell Wilson threw for 298 yards and three touchdowns. Wilson has thrown at least two touchdown passes in each of his last six road contests. The Seahawks are 10-3-2 ATS following a loss, as well as 8-3-1 ATS in these Monday Night TV showdowns with the whole world watching. Seattle has covered four of the last five meetings, as well as a 4-1 ATS run at Soldier Field, so back the experienced dog with the superior edge at quarterback. Play Seattle.
