Most experts are picking the Cowboys to defeat the Bears on Monday, but SB Nation's own Joel Thorman likes the Bears to prevail.

The Bears will head to Dallas on Monday night to play the Cowboys, and OddsShark has the Cowboys favored by a field goal. Most of the experts making picks this week would seem to agree with the bookmakers, as the Cowboys appear to be the popular pick to come out on top.

Over at ESPN, 11 of the 14 picks published have the Cowboys winning on Monday night. CBS Sports have six of their eight picks in favor of the Cowboys, and Yahoo! has three of their four favoring Dallas over Chicago.

SB Nation's football editor, Joel Thorman, is not going along with the majority this week. Thorman has picked the Bears to prevail on Monday, and he gave the following as his reasoning:

"Matt Forte will supposedly be back but will it be enough? The answer is yes. Both defenses are stingy, but the Bears' offense gives them the edge, with or without Forte. The pick: 17-16, Bears"

The Bears and Cowboys will kick off at 7:30 p.m. CT on Monday, and the game will be televised on ESPN.
