This Monday night, the 2-5 Bears travel to San Diego to take on the 2-6 Chargers. San Diego is a four point favorite for this game. They are -210 with the money line, and the Bears are +210. Bear’s star running back Matt Forte is listed as doubtful for this game. San Diego star WR Keenan Allen will also miss this contest due to a lacerated kidney he suffered in last week’s game after scoring a TD.
The Bears have given up the 4th-fewest passing yards per game at 214.3, but their 16 passing TD’s allowed are tied for 4th-most. They also have only four interceptions. The over/under for this game is 49 points. I think with both teams having big injuries on the offensive side of the ball, this game will likely go under 49 points, especially since both teams average under 24 points per game.
San Diego has a 71.4% chance to win this game based on the ESPN Football Power Index, and I think they will win the game as well as cover the 4 point spread. They are 3-5 against the spread overall this year. They have a 1-3 record ATS as the favorite team as well as when they are the home team. The Bears are 3-4 ATS this year both overall and as the underdog. They are 2-1 as the visiting team. The weather will be nice in San Diego at kickoff, about 67 degrees. Chicago will get a chance to play outside of the cold, but I don’t think it will help them too much, even against another weak opponent as the Chargers.
