The Los Angeles Rams need a victory after losing four of their last six games. The Los Angeles Rams have lost two of their last three home games. Jared Goff is completing 60.3 percent of his passes for 2,610 yards, 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Goff has one or less touchdown passes in nine of his last 14 games. Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have combined for 1,368 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Brandin Cooks has 27 receptions.

The Bears are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in November, 14-6 ATS in their last 20 vs. NFC and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Rams are 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 vs. NFC and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Bears are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Rams last 4 games overall. The under is 11-3 in Bears last 14 games overall.
The Chicago Bears are 6-3 ATS in their last nine games as a road underdog. The Los Angeles Rams are 4-4-1 ATS in their last nine games as a home favorite. The Chicago Bears are a tough team to back, as their offense has scored 21 or less points in seven of their nine games, putting their defense in constant tough situations to rise to the occasion. The problem is the Los Angeles Rams aren't playing much better and we've seen a once explosive offense score 12 or less points in two of their last four tries. These are two similar teams in that they're both capable of locking up defensively, but you have zero idea what to expect from the offenses. I'll pinch my nose and take the points because of the unknown.
