Chicago Bears (3-4) at New Orleans Saints (4-2)

NFL Football: Sunday, October 29, 2017 at 1:00 pm (Mercedes-Benz Superdome)

The Line: New Orleans Saints -9 -- Over/Under: 49.5 See the Latest Odds

TV: FOX

The Chicago Bears and the New Orleans Saints duke it out from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday afternoon in week 8 NFL action.

The Chicago Bears will try to climb back to .500 after winning back-to-back games, including a 17-3 win over the Panthers in their last outing to climb to 3-4 this season. Mitchell Trubisky threw for 107 yards on just 4 of 7 passing, while Jordan Howard ran for 65 yards on 21 carries. Tarik Cohen’s lone reception went for 70 yards to lead the team, while Zach Miller caught a pair of passes to lead the team in receptions in the win. Defense ruled the day for the Bears in the win, combining for 5 sacks, a pair of interceptions and a fumble recovery. Eddie Jackson probably got the game-ball, as the Bears’ safety returned a fumble 75 yards for a touchdown to open the scoring, and doubled Chicago’s lead with a 76-yard pick-six in the 2nd quarter, as the Bears held Carolina to just 293 yards of total offense in the win.

Chicago Bears at New Orleans Saints - 10/29/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The New Orleans Saints will look to add another notch to their current 4-game winning streak that has them sitting at 4-2 this season after taking down the Green Bay Packers by a final score of 26-17 in their last outing. Drew Brees threw for 331 yards, a touchdown and 2 picks on 27 of 38 passing, while also rushing for a touchdown as well. Mark Ingram rushed for 105 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries, while Alvin Kamara chipped in 57 rush yards on 9 carries. Ted Ginn Jr. and Michael Thomas shared the team-high with 7 receptions, while Ginn also led the team with 141 receiving yards to Thomas’ 82. Brandon Coleman also added a receiving TD in the win for the Saints. The Saints’ defense combined for a sack, an interception and a pair of forced fumbles, as they took advantage of a still Aaron Rodgers-less Packers squad, holding Green Bay to just 260 yards of total offense and just over 23 minutes of possession in the win.

Chicago is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a win while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall. New Orleans is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a win and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall while the over is 11-1 in their last 12 games against a team with a losing record. Chicago is 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.

The Bears putting wins on the board is nice to see for a team that’s struggled over the last couple of seasons. However, I’m not sure if they’ll be able to keep staying competitive in games with Trubisky throwing just 7 passes and becoming reliant on the run game. Defensive issues aside, the Saints as we all know are able to light up the scoreboard on any given night, and I don’t know if the Bears can keep up. I’ll lay the points with New Orleans here as their offense just seems to be clicking right now.
