The Chicago Bears battle the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in week 8 NFL action at Soldier Field where sloppy conditions could have an affect. The San Francisco 49ers need a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Chicago Bears need a win here to get back to a .500 record.

The San Francisco 49ers have won two of their last three road games. Jimmy Garoppolo is completing 64.8 percent of his passes for 1,106 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions. Deebo Samuel and George Kittle have combined for 875 receiving yards and four touchdowns, while Kyle Juszczyk has 14 receptions. The San Francisco 49ers ground game is averaging 120.2 yards per contest, and Elijah Mitchell leads the way with 296 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, San Francisco is allowing 24.8 points and 324 yards per game. Fred Warner leads the San Francisco 49ers with 45 tackles, Nick Bosa has five sacks and Dre Greenlaw has one interception.

Winning Props Bets

The Chicago Bears have won two of their last three home games. Justin Fields is completing 57.3 percent of his passes for 816 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions. Darnell Mooney and Allen Robinson II have combined for 595 receiving yards and two touchdowns, while Cole Kmet has 19 receptions. The Chicago Bears ground game is averaging 131 yards per contest, and David Montgomery leads the way with 309 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Chicago is allowing 23.1 points and 341.9 yards per game. Roquan Smith leads the Chicago Bears with 75 tackles, Khalil Mack has six sacks and Angelo Blackson has one interception.

The 49ers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games in October and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Bears are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. NFC. The under is 5-2 in 49ers last 7 road games. The under is 6-0 in Bears last 6 games overall. The road team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

I’m not thrilled having to make a pick here, as both offenses struggle to finish drives, they turn the ball over left and right and the defense is left out to dry more times than not. With that said, there’s no way in hell I’m laying chalk with the 49ers on the road. The Chicago Bears have their issues to deal with obviously, but they are at home, and you can argue they have the better defense with them being ranked eighth against the pass and 14th in scoring defense. Not a game I’d bet personally, but I’ll lean Bears if forced to pick.
