The Chicago Bears and Tennessee Titans both started the season strong but have stumbled of late as they face off Sunday afternoon at Nissan Stadium.

The Bears opened the campaign with five wins over their first six games, but have dropped two in a row to fall behind the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North division race. And they’re underdogs by an unconverted touchdown against a Titans team that has also lost two straight after starting 5-0.

NFL Week 9 Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Six appears to be a tragic number for the Titans in a situation like this. Tennessee has gone just 4-11 against the spread in its previous 15 games as a home favourite of six or more points, including four outright losses during that stretch. The betting public is split nearly down the middle on this game, with a slight 51 percent majority taking the home team; Chicago is already 3-1 ATS in four games as a road underdog this season.

The total for Sunday’s encounter is installed at 47, with nearly two-thirds of Sports Interaction respondents siding with the Over. That goes against the Bears’ prevailing trend, one that has seen them convert the Under in four of their past five games (with just one of those games surpassing the 40-point plateau). Tennessee, on the other hand, is a sizzling 5-0-1 O/U in its past six games with all six of those contests finishing north of 50 total points.

Chicago Bears

If we’re going to have any confidence in the Over on Nick Foles’ passing yards prop, it’ll be against Tennessee’s suspect pass defence. The Titans are surrendering 268.7 yards per game through the air, the sixth-highest average in the NFL; the lack of a pass rush has been a major factor in their struggles, with Tennessee having recorded just seven sacks. Foles has thrown for 250+ yards in back-to-back games after failing to do so in his first four appearances of 2020.

Tennessee Titans

The Derrick Henry anytime touchdown should be one of the more popular player props in this one – but Henry could face a stiff test against a Chicago run defence that has allowed just six scores on the ground in its first seven games. The Bears have also allowed just eight receiving TDs on the season, which should cast some doubt on whether Corey Davis, A.J. Brown or Jonnu Smith will reach the end zone for the host Titans.
