Get excited for this NFL Week 7 Monday Night Football cross-conference fight between the hungry Chicago Bears and the .500 New England Patriots as Chicago attempts to correct its losing ways after dropping their last three games while losing four of their last five while New England tries to stay relevant in the AFC East where they sit at the bottom with a .500 record.

New England has covered the spread in five of their last six games as home favorites but their starting QB Mac Jones (ankle) is listed as questionable so it could be rookie QB Bailey Zappe who gets the nod, so far a productive replacement having stepped in for 3 games where he completed about 73 percent of his passes, 51/70, for almost 600 yards and 4 TDs with just one interception, so either of those QBs can be dangerous.

The Chicago Bears have the 2nd most productive rushing attack in the NFL led by a 2-headed backfield monster ala David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert whose RB group averages 171 yards on the ground per game, and you also have to consider how much highly sacked (23 sacks, most in the league) QB Justin Fields likes to run, so far this season with 54 carries for 282 yards and a TD.

For the points total bet it often helps to look at some of the trends and in this matchup, the New England Patriots at home at Gillette Stadium have gone over the total points line seven out of their last games, so expect that to happen again, although it always helps to do the math before you make such a statistically centered wager.

For example, when it comes to scoring, the Chicago Bears have the second least productive offense in the league after posting just 15.5 points per game this season whereas the New England Patriots have been far more successful in that sense so far averaging an 11th best 23.5 points per game, that total of 39 just a shade under what the oddsmakers are predicting here.

Take it a step further and research what these defenses have allowed opponents to score this season and you’ll find that the Bears D allows the 11th least points with 19.7 per game and the Pats D allows the 7th least amount of points per game with 18.8, that total of 38.5 still under the sportsbooks total of 39.5, yet another sign to take the under in this bet, assuming all goes normal.

As mentioned above, the Bears have lost four of their last five games as their offense struggles for its identity led by QB Fields, but they show some hopeful signs of effectiveness, for example, the Bears' defense is ranked third in the league against the pass after allowing opponents to gain just 178.7 yards through the air each game.

However, it will be tough for Chicago to earn an outright win in Foxboro so a $100 money line bet on the Bears to win gets you $290 plus your original bet, and for New England fans it will cost you $345 for a money line bet that pays out $100 for a win plus your original investment, two ways to make this Monday Night Football matchup even more thrilling than it already is.

Another big factor here is weather and since Gillette Stadium in Foxboro is not covered, so a check of the weather before game time might be a smart step to take since the worse the weather the harder it is to score, with another major issue being injuries to either team and the Patriots have eight players listed as questionable but the Bears only have one, though it’s QB Justin Fields (shoulder).
