The Texans had their undefeated streak stopped by the Packers three weeks ago, and since then have run off two wins a row outscoring Baltimore and Buffalo at home by a combined score of 64-22. They have performed well against the line this year too, going 6-2 ATS. Sunday night’s game is their first road game in almost a month. They have gone 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS on the road this year, having beaten the Jets, Broncos, and Jaguars.
Just like the Texans, the Bears only loss of the year has come at the hands of the Packers. For the Bears though, that was in Week 2, and the Bears have run off six wins in a row, going 4-2 ATS in the process, with a 5-3 ATS mark for the year. The key factor for the Bears has been their ability to generate turnovers, and points off of those turnovers. They have also showed success at home this year, going 4-0 SU, but only 2-2 ATS.
Chicago is a 1 point home favorite. As mentioned earlier, the Bears have feasted off of turnovers, and the Texans do a good job protecting the ball. Look for the Texans to win this game by more than a touchdown. Take the Texans +1 at the sports books.
