Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 20.1 points and 333.3 yards per game. Thomas Davis leads the Los Angeles Chargers with 54 tackles, Joey Bosa has five sacks and Rayshawn Jenkins has two interceptions.
The Chicago Bears need a victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Chicago Bears have won six of their last eight home games. Mitch Trubisky is completing 64.4 percent of his passes for 839 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. Chase Daniel and Trubisky have combined for eight touchdown passes and four interceptions.

The Chargers are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games in October, 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 road games and 1-5-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Bears are 17-7-1 ATS in their last 25 home games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in October and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Chargers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 8-3 in Bears last 11 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Chargers last 6 games overall.
The Los Angeles Chargers have covered eight of their last 13 games as a road underdog. The Chicago Bears have covered eight of their last 11 games as a home favorite. The Los Angeles Chargers remain one of the more disappointing tams in the league and they're coming off an absolutely brutal loss last week, falling inches short of winning the game. The Chicago Bears may be in a better position, but they have issues of their own and the lack of offense continues to be an issue. That's why I'm siding with the Chargers and the free points, as they're a team that's played their best on the road dating back to last season, and the Bears aren't good or consistent enough offensively to lay chalk with. Give me the Chargers and the points.
