Saints vs. Bears Week 8 Prediction
The 4-2 Saints will visit the 5-2 Bears at 4:25 p.m. ET in Chicago on Sunday and New Orleans is laying four points as road chalk. Are the Bears a good bet to cover as a home dog or is there more value somewhere else on the board?
267 New Orleans Saints (-4) at 268 Chicago Bears (+4); o/u 42.5
4:25 p.m. ET, Sunday, November 1, 2020
Venue: Solider Field, Chicago, IL
New Orleans Saints DFS Spin
Michael Thomas (hamstring, ankle) was ruled out for Week 8 against the Bears. Saints will lean on Tre'Quan Smith and Deonte Harris since all of Emmanuel Sanders (COVID), Marquez Callaway (ankle, out) and Thomas will not be available Sunday. It's a miserable spot for all (Drew Brees included) against Chicago's defense, which has permitted the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing wideouts and second-fewest to enemy quarterbacks. Fantasy players can slide Smith into FLEX spots in a pinch but are advised to look elsewhere in Week 8 for production.
Chicago Bears DFS Spin
Allen Robinson (concussion) will play in Week 8 against the Saints. This was expected after Robinson was originally listed as questionable. Robinson missed practice all week but cleared the concussion protocol and will start against the Saints. Robinson is a WR3 play that will likely see a lot of Marshon Lattimore in Week 8
