Best bets: Bears-Rams Monday Night Football

The Los Angeles Rams host the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football this week, in a battle of NFC playoff hopefuls.

Wes Reynolds and Dave Tuley preview the game and break down their best bets.

Reynolds: The Bears (5-1 straight up; 4-2 against the spread, including 4-1 ATS as underdogs) somehow find themselves atop the NFC North despite having the NFL’s 28th-ranked offense (312.8 ypg). Their seventh-rated defense (337.2 ypg; 19.3 ppg) has carried the day for a team that doesn’t win pretty and seems to always win close (victories by four, four, four, one and seven points).

Bears QB Nick Foles hasn’t been statistically better than Mitch Trubisky, the man he replaced, but he is 2-1 as a starter and led the Bears to a comeback in Atlanta in Week 3 that won him the starting gig for the time being.

The Rams (4-2 SU; 3-3 ATS) hope to fare better under the prime-time lights, as they came up lame last Sunday night at San Francisco. While both teams have good records to start the season, both also have more to prove, especially the Rams considering their four victories have come against the entire NFC Least, which has a combined record of 7-20-1. The Rams have the league’s No. 4 defense (318.5 ypg) but have faced two of the league’s three worst offenses (Washington and the Giants).
