The San Diego Chargers haven’t been the most reliable team to wager on in recent seasons, and the 2015 NFL campaign is no different. The Bolts, who play host to the Chicago Bears in Week 9 on Monday Night Football, opened as 4-point favorites. In their last eight games when tabbed as chalk by oddsmakers, Phillip Rivers and company are just 1-7 ATS.
- The Chargers are 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games.
- The Bears are 0-5 SU and ATS in their last five games as underdogs in November.
- The total has gone over in seven of the Bears’ last eight games on the road in November.
Chicago (2-5 SU, 3-4 ATS) have looked slightly better in the last month after enduring an awful start to the year. Going back to October 4th against Oakland, the Bears have been at least keeping things close, losing by a field goal twice while garnering two victories by two and one point margins over the Raiders and Chiefs.
Monday’s contest marks the first time the two sides have met in the regular season since 2011, when Jay Cutler led Chicago to a 31-20 victory.
