NFL Betting Preview: Chicago Bears vs. Las Vegas Raiders
October 22, 2023
The Las Vegas Raiders will travel to Chicago, Illinois to face the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field in week 7 of the NFL season on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 PM ET with the game airing on Fox.
Las Vegas enters this game with a record of 3-3 following a 21-17 win at home against the New England Patriots while covering the 3-point spread as a home favorite in week 6 of the NFL season. The Raiders scored 21 points while compiling a total of 348 total yards offensively which included 264 passing yards and 84 rushing yards while allowing 17 points and 259 total yards defensively which included 200 passing yards and 83 rushing yards. Jimmy Garoppolo led the team in passing, completing 14 of 22 attempts for 162 yards with a touchdown and an interception while rushing for four yards. Josh Jacobs led the team in rushing with 25 carries for 77 yards while adding two receptions for 16 yards. Michael Mayer led the team in receiving, catching five of six targets for 75 yards.
The Chicago Bears enter this game with a record of 1-5 following a 13-19 loss at home against the Minnesota Vikings while failing to cover the 3-point spread as a home underdog in week 6 of the NFL season. Chicago scored 13 points while compiling a total of 275 yards offensively which included 141 passing yards and 162 rushing yards while allowing 19 points and 220 total yards defensively which included 181 passing yards and 46 rushing yards. Tyson Bagent led the team in passing, completing 10 of 14 attempts for 83 yards and an interception while adding four rushing yards and a touchdown. D’Onta Foreman led the team in rushing with 15 carries for 65 yards while adding a reception for two yards. D.J. Moore led the team in receiving, catching five of eight targets for 51 yards.
BookMaker has the Las Vegas Raiders listed as 3-point favorites on the road against the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon in week 7 of the NFL season. Chicago has won five of the last eight and two of the last three games in the series while winning by an average margin of 1.75 points per game over the last ten and 3.33 points per game over the last three meetings. The Bears are 5-2-1 ATS in the last eight and 2-1 ATS in the last three matchups. Las Vegas is 3-3 ATS overall, 1-2 ATS on the road, and 2-1 ATS as a favorite this season while the Chicago Bears are 1-4-1 ATS overall, 0-2-1 ATS at home and 1-3-1 ATS as an underdog on the year.
Chicago has looked like one of the worst teams in the NFL this season and enters this game with only one win on the season and will now be without Justin Fields for an extended period of time and will turn to a rookie quarterback, Tyson Bagent, to lead the offense. Things aren’t going to look any better for the Bears when they host the Las Vegas Raiders who have won their previous two games in a row. The Bears have also been one of the worst teams at covering the spread this season going 1-4-1 ATS overall. I am taking the Las Vegas Raiders -3 on the road against the Chicago Bears in week 7 of the NFL season.
