Point Spread: -5.50 | -110.00 Chicago (Home)
The Bears bounced back from back to back blowout losses at New England and Green Bay with a solid home win over the Vikings last week. They host Tampa this week, and I'm expecting Chicago to build on a little momentum here at home.
The Bucs are just 2-7, and they had lost five straight before winning at Washington last week. Tampa has real problems defending the pass, ranking 30th in the NFL allowing over 266 passing yards per game. Jay Cutler should have a field day here at home.
Matt Forte could also be in for a big day, as he goes up a Bucs defense that is allowing an average of 118 rushing yards per game (22nd in the NFL). Forte is third in the league in rushing behind DeMarco Murray and Le'Veon Bell. He ran for 117 yards and picked up 58 more with six receptions against the Vikes.
Both these teams have struggled on defense, but Chicago has more weapons, and they have home field. This should be a comfortable win for the Bears.
