TODAY'S BEST BET | NOVEMBER 8
We’re heading to Monday Night Football in the NFL for today’s best bet as the Steelers look to continue their winning momentum when they host the slumping Bears.
These two teams couldn’t be heading in more opposite directions as they prepare to square off at Heinz Field.
Chicago had an okay start to the season with three wins from five, but they’ve fallen apart over the last few weeks and come into this encounter on the back of a three-match losing streak.
The Bears have one of the worst offences in the league, are currently last in passing yards per game at an average of 127.4 and give up 24.4 points per game. Not pretty reading.
Meanwhile, the Steelers have kept their season alive over the last couple of weeks with three consecutive wins over the Broncos, Seahawks and Browns.
All of those victories have been by eight points or less, but now they have a great chance to register a big win in front of their home fans.
We’re expecting it to be convincing and backing Pittsburgh to cover the -6.5 handicap.
All five of Chicago’s defeats this season have come by 10 points or more, while they are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.
Additionally, the Bears are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 road games against teams with a winning home record. Translation – when Chicago go on the road against a superior team, they are almost always outclassed.
With the likes of Ben Roethlisberger, Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson and on-fire rookie running back Najee Harris in great form, all signs point to the Steelers coming out on top in relatively comfortable fashion on Monday night.
