The Chicago Bears picked up their second win of the season with a 27-24 OT win as a 5.5-point dog at Baltimore last week. Rookie QB was 8-of-16 passing for 113 yards and a TD as the Bears did most of their damage on the ground, but that might be tough here against the Panthers who rank 5th in the NFL against the run while allowing just 3.4 yards per carry. We can also note that the Bears are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win.
The Panthers will play on 10 days’ rest after losing 28-23 to the Philadelphia Eagles last Thursday night. They’re 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a straight up loss and 3-0 SU and ATS on the road this season.
Chicago has a solid defense ranked 6th in total defense, but I don’t think the Bears will be able to keep up with an angry and well rested Panthers team coming off a loss.
My free pick is on the Carolina Panthers.
