Betting market: A large discrepancy between bets and dollars helps explain the movement on the over/under.

The under is getting 53% of bets compared to 82% of dollars as of writing (see live data here), which has resulted in a move from 47 to 46.5. Mark Gallant

Should bettors trust the Bears? Chicago has won two in a row, but each win was decided by one score. History is not on the Bears’ side when it comes to covering in this spot.

According to our Bet Labs data, teams — such as Chicago — that failed to make the playoffs the season before have been good candidates to fade in the first half of the season when they jump out to a winning record and are favored. John Ewing
