After getting throttled last time out Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints will be looking for a rebound effort on Monday Night Football in Week 15 as they take on the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
New Orleans lost 41-10 to division-rival Carolina in Week 14, but still have a chance to win the division title in the watered-down NFC South despite their 5-8 SU record. The Saints are 2-0 both SU and ATS in their last two games against the Bears, with the UNDER paying out in both of those contests for totals bettors. Chicago is also 5-8 SU on the season, but that has them dead last in the NFC North division standings.
