The Seahawks are 3.5 point underdogs heading into their match-up with the Bears.

The Seahawks (6-7) head to Soldier Field this weekend to take on the Bears (7-6) and will do so as they typically do on the road, as underdogs. Vegas opened up the line at four points but now it has shrunk to three and a half, as provided by OddsShark, all despite Seattle's 4-1 record in the past five games and Chicago's three-game losing streak.

The Bears have a distinct lack of weaponry on offense since Jay Cutler went down with a thumb injury and have since lost their star running back Matt Forte to a grade-2 MCL pull. It's unclear if Forte will be back in time for Sunday's game but the Bears do have the distinct advantage of playing at home in the middle of December. 

As for the Seahawks, they look to avenge a Divisional Round Playoff loss last year that ended their season at the hands of the Bears in Chicago, in a game where the Bears jumped ahead to a 28-0 lead before Seattle slowly crawled back into it to lose 35-24. Seattle is still in the playoff hunt this season, just barely, and this game has all kinds of implications for both teams as they each grapple for what's looking to be Wild Card spots.
