Why Bet On Chicago at -5?The best reasons to back the Bears is simple. Chicago is shutting down the opposition with some stupendous defense. After leading the league in fewest points allowed a year ago, the Bears are back at it again in limiting all four of their opponents this season to 15 points or less and two of those to 10 points or less. Chicago took out Minnesota 16-6 in their Week 4 NFC North divisional battle to improve to 3-0 over their last three games after dropping their opener.

Why Bet On Las Vegas at +5?
I guess the best reason to back the Raiders in this contest is because they are playing at home and getting almost a touchdown as underdogs in this affair. Then, there’s the fact that Derek Carr and company had their best game of the season last weekend in upsetting Indianapolis 31-24 last weekend while racking up a whopping 188 rushing yards. The bad news though is that Las Vegas is ranked a dismal 25th in points allowed (25.5 ppg) and just 21st in scoring (19.8 ppg) and neither of those things bodes well heading into this contest against a team with legitimate Super Bowl hopes.

Bears vs Raiders Expert Analysis and Prediction
I’m going to get right to the point by saying that I’m a bit surprised Chicago isn’t a touchdown favorite in this Week 5 matchup even on the road. The Raiders may have stunned Indianapolis in Week 4 by putting 31 points on the board, but this is a team that was limited to 14 points or less in its two previous games against Kansas City and Minnesota and now they get to face a Bears defense that is making minced-meat out of their opponents.
Chicago has gone 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win, 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games overall and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against the Raiders while Las Vegas has gone 0-4 ATS in their last four games in the month of October. I’m expecting Khalil Mack to have a monster game in his return to Las Vegas while showing the Raiders that he is the type of game-changing player that is going to end up in Canton one day in the future. Back the Bears and you won’t go wrong NFL betting enthusiasts!
