We saw over 70 points scored on Thursday Night Football—very unfamiliar territory for those games—but the low-scoring slosh of a game is likely to occur between the New England Patriots and Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
Regardless of how boring or exciting a game is, there are plenty of ways to make some money, and here, we’ll look at the best bets to make.

Let’s cut to the chase: The Bears are bad, and the scoring avenues are few and far between. The Bears have scored more than 20 points just twice this season. Over the last three weeks, they’ve had a game where they scored seven and another where they scored 12.
The Patriots aren’t a high-octane offense by any means, but as we saw last week against the Cleveland Browns, they do have the potential to explode in games.
Here, the focus for the Patriots will be the running game, and the Bears allow 163 yards on the ground per game.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is notorious for taking away an opponent’s greatest asset. For the Bears, that’s likely the rushing ability of quarterback Justin Fields.
So, if they shut down Fields running the ball and the weapons are atrocious combined with going up against arguably the top cornerback in the league, Jack Jones, on the Patriots, it’s hard to imagine the Bears scoring double-digits.

Regardless of the game, 40 points is pretty low. However, for this game, unless the Patriots score 30 points, it’s hard to imagine the Bears scoring enough points to help push this total over.
The Bears average 293 yards per game on offense (fifth-lowest), and 170 come from the ground game.
The Patriots allowed 119 yards per game on the ground. Still, Belichick will look to lock down Fields’ rushing ability, as mentioned.
So, this game will go under unless David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert can lead the charge and score points.
The Patriots win this one 24-9.
