The Chicago Bears are attractive in the underdog role given that they’re getting a free touchdown, they’re at home, and they’ve had an extra week to prepare. However, the Ravens have the top rushing offense in the league and the Bears are 23rd in rushing defense. The Ravens defense has issues against the pass, but the Bears are 32nd in passing offense. This game feels like one where the Ravens can take out some frustration and win going away. I’ll back the road favorite.
