Bears open as 2.5-point underdogs against Broncos

SHARE Bears open as 2.5-point underdogs against Broncos

For the 11th-consecutive week, the Bears have opened as underdogs.

Following Sunday’s emphatic win in St. Louis, Chicago opened as a 2.5-point underdog for Sunday’s game against Denver at Soldier Field.

The Broncos, losers of two straight, are coming off a 29-13 loss to Kansas City in which Peyton Manning tossed four interceptions.

The game will be Bears coach John Fox’s first against his former team. Fox went 46-18 in four seasons in Denver, and he’s 3-0 against the AFC West this season.

Despite coming off an impressive win, the Bears will likely continue their streak as underdogs. Along with San Francisco, Chicago is one of just two teams to not be favored in a single game this season.

That will likely change when the Bears host the 49ers Dec. 6. Games against the Redskins, at the Buccaneers and against the Lions also present opportunities for Chicago to be favored.

The Bears (4-5) have now covered the spread in five of their past six games.
