Spread: CHI -4
Team Totals: Bears (20.5), Panthers (16.5)
The second half of the NFL season kicks off on Thursday night when the Panthers travel to the Windy City for a matchup against the Bears. Chicago hasn’t been favored in a game since Week 1 against the Packers when they were favored by one point. Now, they’re four-point favorites, a sign as to what the market thinks about this Panthers team that ranks 26th in points per game, 31st in yards per play and 27th in EPA per play. No doubt, the Panthers have been #bad this year.
