NFL Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bears are the favorite on the road, as they have odds of -5 points against the Cardinals. The over/under total has been set at 36.5 points. Chicago is 8-6 on the season, 3-3 on the road and 6-8 against the spread. Arizona is 5-9 overall, 4-3 at home and 6-7-1 against the spread.

Line Movement: Opening odds had the Bears favored by 5 points as well. The spread didn’t change much, bumping up to 5.5 during the week before closing back at Chicago -5. The over/under total opened at 36.5 points and hasn’t changed since.

NFL Week 16 Free Pick: Take the Under. According to latest NFL trends, the Cardinals have hit the under in 8 of their last 11 games following a win and the Bears have hit the under in 5 of their last 6 games following a loss. This game should see both defenses dominate. Arizona posted 38 points last week, but did it with under 200 yards of offense thanks to a slew of turnovers. Don’t look for that to happen again this week. Arizona will struggle to move the ball, even on a banged-up Bears’ defense. Chicago has had trouble on offense as well, especially protecting Jay Cutler. The Cardinals aren’t a bad defense to begin with, and they have played well at home and are facing an average offense. Look for the points to be few and far between.
