For a game between the 5-1 Bears and the 4-2 Rams, this looks like it will be a much uglier Monday Night Football battle than you would expect.
I know I am saying this to a large Chicago audience, and maybe you guys will actually agree with me here, but I just do not understand how Chicago is good. Their offense averages just 4.8 yards per play. Nick Foles looks like the guy that couldn’t land a starting job in Philly, not the BDN that won a Super Bowl. They’re 5-1 and four of those wins have come as underdogs.
On the other side of the ball, the Rams are 4-2 with four wins against the NFC East, a league that is 7-20-1 overall with just two wins (and a tie!) against non-division opponents.
Maybe I’m crazy, maybe I’m a hater, but I think both of these teams are bang average, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. That side, they do play some good defense, especially Chicago, which should make it obvious where I’m leaning: unders.
I like the full game under 44.5. I like the first half under 21.5. I like the Rams team total under 25.5. I like the under on just about any prop you can throw at me.
All that said, it makes me lean towards the Bears side if you’re into betting that more than totals. I think this will be a low-scoring slugfest with a bunch of field goals and some turnovers sprinkled in. Six points is a lot of points in a low-scoring game, so that’s where I would invest.
