Week 5 NFL picks and predictions: Bears vs. Jaguars

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

A few NFL experts are predicting Jacksonville will pull an upset on Sunday, but Chicago is still the overwhelming favorite.

The Chicago Bears will be travelling south to face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, less than a week after a dominating victory over the Dallas Cowboys. It is the type of matchup that is a classic "trap game," with the Jags lying in the weeds for a Bears team being lauded after a high-profile win.

But a whole host of NFL experts -- with a few exceptions -- don't see it that way. Of the 19 experts and computer programs making picks at ESPN, Yahoo and CBS this week, only two see Jacksonville pulling the upset. At ESPN, Adam Schefter is the lone wolf who likes Jacksonville to win. At CBS, it's Josh Katzowitz picking the Jags. ESPN's Accuscore system, ESPN's users, Yahoo's users and the 14 other experts all are riding with the Bears.

The Bears are favorites in Vegas heading into the weekend, but not by a huge margin. Most have Chicago as a six-point favorite.
