The Chicago Bears have their work cut out for them this weekend as they travel to Philadelphia to take on the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have began to look more and more like the Dream Team they were purported to be this offseason, a fact that isn't exactly evident when look at the Week 9 NFL odds for this Monday Night Football match-up.
The Eagles opened as seven-point favorites over the visiting Bears according to the lines on Odds Shark, and while the line has moved nearly three points higher on some betting sites, the fact remains that the Michael Vick led team might not be giving enough points up to make Vegas profitable on this match-up.
The Bears over-under has been set at an interesting 47 points despite the two teams combing for 52 points against separate opponents last week. Jay Cutler isn't a world-beater by any means, but it's surprising that Vegas doesn't think he and Forte along with Vick and LeSean McCoy could turn into a shootout.
