The home team is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
I'm not looking to lay chalk with either of these losing teams that compete but find ways to lose more times than not. The Atlanta Falcons are the worst team in the league when it comes to defending the pass, and they're going up against a Bears' offense that's found a spark over the last month. This is the best ball Fields has played in his career. I'll grab the free field goal with the Bears, as the Falcons in the favorite role isn't intriguing at all.
