NFL Betting Preview: Chicago Bears vs. New Orleans Saints
November 5, 2023
The Chicago Bears will travel to New Orleans, Louisiana to face the New Orleans Saints at the Caesars Superdome on Sunday afternoon with kickoff scheduled for 1:00 PM ET and the game airing on Fox in week 9 of the NFL season.
Chicago enters this game with a record of 2-6 following a 13-30 loss on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers while failing to cover the 9.5-point spread as a road underdog in week 8 of the NFL season. The Bears scored 13 points while compiling a total of 295 yards offensively which included 232 passing yards and 73 rushing yards while allowing 30 points and 352 total yards defensively which included 298 passing yards and 54 rushing yards. Tyson Bagent led the team in passing, completing 25 of 37 attempts for 232 yards and two interceptions while adding a rushing touchdown. D’Onta Foreman led the team in rushing with nine carries for 34 yards while adding a reception for two yards. Cole Kmet led the team in receiving, catching all ten targets for 79 yards.
The New Orleans Saints enter this game with a record of 4-4 following a 38-27 win on the road against the Indianapolis Colts while covering the 2-point spread as a road favorite in week 8 of the NFL season. New Orleans scored 38 points while compiling a total of 511 yards offensively which included 354 passing yards and 161 rushing yards while allowing 27 points and 371 total yards defensively which included 213 passing yards and 164 rushing yards. Derek Carr led the team in passing, completing 19 of 27 attempts for 310 yards and two touchdowns. Tyson Hill led the team in rushing with nine carries for 63 yards and two touchdowns while adding a reception for 14 yards. Rashid Shaheed led the team in receiving, catching all three targets for 153 yards and a touchdown.
BookMaker has the New Orleans Saints listed as 7.5-point favorites at home against the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon in week 9 of the NFL season. New Orleans has won seven of the last ten including the last seven meetings in a row while going 5-4-1 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Chicago Bears are 2-5-1 ATS overall, 1-3 ATS on the road, and 2-4-1 ATS as an underdog this season while the New Orleans Saints are 2-5-1 ATS overall, 0-3 ATS at home, and 1-5-1 ATS as a favorite on the year.
Neither team has been great at covering the spread this season as New Orleans has not covered the spread in any of their home games going 0-3 ATS at home while Chicago is 1-3 ATS on the road. However, New Orleans has dominated this series, winning the previous seven meetings in a row while going 5-4-1 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three contests which is why I am buying the .5 point and laying the points with the New Orleans Saints when they host the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon in week 9 of the NFL season.
