Chicago is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 October games. The under is 6-2 in Chicago’s last 8 Monday games. New England is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The over is 7-1 in New England’s last 8 home games. The over is 5-1 in these two team's last 6 head-to-head meetings.
Chicago comes into this game with one of the worst offenses in the league and will need to convert more of their chances into points if they want to win this game. New England’s starting quarterback is up in the air, but both quarterbacks are capable of leading this run first offense. I think we are going to see a slower paced game in this matchup, with both defenses playing well. I like the under here.
