SHARE Against Bears, Rams are touchdown favorites for just fourth time in 10 seasons

Coming off perhaps their most impressive win of the season, the Bears still can’t get any love from Vegas oddsmakers.

Despite the win over San Diego and St. Louis’ Week 9 loss to Minnesota, the Rams are touchdown favorites over the Bears heading into this weekend’s game.

The seven-point line marks just the fourth time in the past 10 years that St. Louis has been favored by a touchdown or more, according to pregame.com.

Ten weeks into the season, Chicago is one of just two NFL teams not to be favored in a single game this season.

San Francisco is the other.

The Bears’ Week 4 game against Oakland marked the first time the Raiders had been favored in a game in nearly two years.
