NFL FREE PICK: Take the Bears. According to latest NFL trends, Chicago is 6-2-2 ATS L10 as a road fave. Jax is 4-9 ATS L13 vs. non-conf. teams. Chicago is coming off a short week but that’s one of the few advantages for the Jags this week. The Bears simply dominated Dallas on the road on Monday night, as Jay Cutler threw for 275 yards with two TDs and Matt Forte came back from injury to run for 52 yards. They also picked off a pretty good quarterback in Tony Romo, five times. That’s not a good sign for a young signal-caller in Blaine Gabbert, coming off a 27-10 home loss to the Bengals. He threw for just 186 yards, while the Bengals held Maurice Jones-Drew to only 38 yards. This will be a rough one for the Jags.
