The Chicago Bears and the Los Angeles Rams meet in week 7 NFL action from SoFi Stadium on Monday Night Football.
The Chicago Bears come into this game looking to build on a 23-16 win over the Carolina Panthers in their last game. Nick Foles has thrown for 878 yards, 6 touchdowns and 4 interceptions on 62.5% passing while David Montgomery leads the Bears in rushing with 305 rushing yards and a touchdown. Allen Robinson II leads Chicago in receiving with 40 grabs on 66 targets for 474 yards and a pair of touchdowns while Jimmy Graham has 203 receiving yards and 4 scores. Darnell Mooney, Anthony Miller and David Montgomery each have 100+ receiving yards this season. Defensively, Roquan Smith leads Chicago with 52 total tackles, including 37 solo tackles while Tashaun Gipson Sr. has a pair of interceptions. Khalil Mack leads Chicago with 4.5 sacks and Akiem Hicks has 3.5 sacks for the Bears in that department.
The Los Angeles Rams will look to build on their 4-2 start to the year after a 24-16 loss to the 49ers last time out. Jared Goff has thrown for 1,570 yards, 10 touchdowns and 4 interceptions on 67.4% passing while Darrell Henderson Jr. leads the Rams with 348 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns. Malcolm Brown has 217 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns and Cam Akers has 113 rushing yards for the Rams as well this season. Cooper Kupp has a team-high 374 receiving yards with 31 catches on 46 targets with a pair of touchdowns while Robert Woods has 329 receiving yards and 3 TDs with 27 catches. Josh Reynolds and Tyler Higbee each have 200+ receiving yards. Defensively, John Johnson III has a team-high 46 solo tackles while Micah Kiser is right behind with 45 total tackles. Aaron Donald leads the Rams with 7.5 sacks while Troy Reeder has 3 sacks and Darious Williams has a pair of interceptions.
Chicago is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog while the under is 10-3 in their last 13 games as a road underdog. Los Angeles is 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games against the NFC and 13-6-1 ATS in their last 20 games as a favorite while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 home games.
The Bears have had a solid start to the year and the Rams just blew a solid chance to make some noise in the NFC West before falling short against the 49ers in primetime. With that said, I think we’re in store for a hard-hitting physical game, kind of like the last two meetings that have combined for 45 total points. I’ll side with the under in this one as I think it could be the first to 20 winning the game.
