The Chicago Bears have risen to 9.5 to 11 point favorites as they face off with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Chicago Bears will be 9.5-to-11 point favorites against the Indianapolis Colts after opening up as nine-point favorites overall. Chicago is considered one of the favorites to win the NFC North, and Indianapolis is coming off a year where they finished 2-14, so it's not a huge surprise the Bears are heavily favored at home at Soldier Field.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will be making his first career NFL start in Chicago, which will probably be a rude awakening as he takes on what figures to be a formidable Bears defensive front. Meanwhile, Jay Cutler will try to lead a resurgent Chicago offense and get the Bears back on track against a Colts defense that is still in rebuilding mode.

In terms of totals, the Bears/Colts had an opening over/under of 40.5; it has now been raised up to 43 to 43.5 points depending on the sportsbook.
