The Chicago Bears are listed as heavy favorites for their Week 3 matchup against the St. Louis Rams.
Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears are looking to bounce back from a tough Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers, and oddsmakers have the Bears favored by more than a touchdown for the Week 3 showdown against the St. Louis Rams. The line opened with the Bears listed as 10-point favorites, but since then it has crept down to as low as 7 points on some sites, while one outlet has Chicago still marked as a 9-point favorite to win.
The over/under for the game opened at 44.5 points, and since that time it has made a small move to 44 points on some sites tracked by Odds Shark. Bears running back Matt Forte isn't expected to play on Sunday, so the pressure will fall on Cutler and his big receivers -- Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall -- to produce offense for Chicago going against Cortland Finnegan and a reworked Rams defense.
Kickoff for the Week 3 matchup between the Bears and Rams is scheduled for 12 p.m. CT at Soldier Field in Chicago.
