4 units on Chicago +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Here we’re faced with yet another game that looks like a blowout. One of the league’s top offenses faces a team that has struggled all season long. Chicago doesn’t seem to have much going for them except that they’ve quietly established something that resembles a defense. After allowing 29+ points per game over their first six, they’ve allowed fewer than 12 the last three games. Granted, these games were against poor teams but it is a good sign. If the Bears play well anywhere, it’s at home where they are 3-1. Chicago qualifies for a couple of historical trends that are a combined 49-7 ATS. The Bears haven’t had a real shocker win all season long and I think they are due for one. The Rams, off a short week of practice against one of the league’s worst teams, are primed for a letdown.
