Monday Night Football features the Chicago Bears on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers to finish up what has been an exciting Week 9 in the NFL.

Our team of experts at VSiN has the game covered from all angles, with a market report from South Point oddsmaker Chris Andrews, along with picks on the game from VSiN's Dave Tuley, Adam Burke and Ben Brown from Pro Football Focus.

Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers (-7, 39) 

Market report from Chris Andrews: Surprisingly little betting interest so far. You can’t walk 10 feet in the South Point without running into somebody from either Chicago or Pittsburgh. Public doesn’t seem to trust either side at this price. Took one sharp Under bet at my opening total of 40. Moved straight to 39. With a line stuck at 6.5 for this long, we can assume sharps would jump hard on Chicago + 7 if the public decided to bet the favorite on game day.

Tuley: I didn’t have a play in this game when we were putting Point Spread Weekly together last week and haven’t made a pick on it anywhere, but the more I’ve thought about it over the weekend, the more I love the Under.

We missed the Under 40 that was available last week, but that’s OK. This is the lowest total of Week 9, but sometimes oddsmakers can’t make a total low enough. Justin Fields is improving for the Bears, but they’re still No. 32 in total offense, last in the league at just 264 yards per game, and average just 15.4 points per game. Now, they face the Steelers’ tough defense. When they’ve faced other top defenses, they’ve scored six points vs. the Browns and three points vs. the Buccaneers, so I’m not expecting Fields to have his breakout game on Monday night.
