Point Spread: 13.00 | -119.00 Chicago (Away)
Both teams have struggled with consistency so far. The Bears are 0-2 SU and 0-2 ATS, while the Chiefs are 1-1 SU/ATS.
Teams that start 0-3 have almost zero chance of making the playoffs, so Justin Fields and company will be risking life and limb to try and pull off the upset here.
Just like the Lions did here on Opening night.
What's up with the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes? Injuries? New faces and lack of chemistry? Something else, or all of the above?
Who knows, but it's safe to say that the defending champs definitely look "out of sorts" here early on.
KC has upcoming road games at the Jets and Vikes, setting this up as a potential look-ahead, or "trap" game for the home side.
I say the Bears play their best game of the season, and whether or not that's actually good enough to pull off an upset will be seen, but either way, I expect this one to be a lot closer than what this larger spread is suggesting once it's all said and done.
Grab the points, the play is CHICAGO.
Good luck, NP
