Betting market: The line is not uniform whatsoever across the market, which is a bit strange considering the big difference between 6.5 and 7. At the time of writing 66% of bettors like the Bears, who have moved from -6.5 to -7 at BookMaker, but from -7 to -6.5 at Pinnacle.

The under has received 15% more dollars than bets, causing it to drop from 47 to 44 (see live betting data here). —Mark Gallant

Weather report: This is expected to be the windiest game of the week, with wind speeds average about 13 mph. As is the case across the rest of middle America, temperatures will be chilly and should sit in the high 30s for most of the game. —Mark Gallant

Trends to know: According to our Bet Labs data, Stafford is 24-39-2 against (38.1%, -16.2 units) in his career against teams with a record above .500. Unsurprisingly that is the worst mark of any quarterback since 2009. — Evan Abrams

The Bears have allowed 19 total points in their last two games — granted they played the Bills and Jets — and are allowing 19.1 points per game this season. That looks good but it’s actually been profitably to fade teams that have allowed 10 points or fewer in consecutive games.

Since 2003, those teams are 97-114-6 ATS (46%) in that spot, losing bettors 21.7 units. — Evan Abrams
