Bet Today's NFL Games

CHICAGO: The Bears are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games in October but have failed to cover in four of five overall and are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game. They're also winless at 0-4 against the number in their last four games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

INDIANAPOLIS: The Colts are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games in Week 5 and are 22-7 against the spread in their last 29 games versus a team with a losing record. They're also 26-11-1 at the betting window in their last 38 home games and are 20-9-1 ATS in their last 30 games coming off a failed cover in their previous contest.

OUR PREDICTION: The under is 5-2 in the Bears' last seven games in the month of October and is 4-1 in their last five games following an ATS win. The under is also 4-1 in the Colts' last five home games versus a team with a losing road record and with Andrew Luck banged up, plus another start for Brian Hoyer, look for this contest to be relatively low-scoring.
