The Chicago Bears may be going into Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a better record than their opponents, but the odds makers still like the Eagles at home to pull out a victory as they continue to build momentum. With the Eagles coming off a dominant victory over the Dallas Cowboys to win their second consecutive game, our partners from Odds Shark like the Eagles as 7-point favorites over the Bears.

The Bears may be on a two-game winning streak of their own as well as having a week off to prepare during their Week 8 bye, but the odds makers appear to believe that the Eagles are finally finding their form after an uneven beginning to the season. Philadelphia crushed Dallas 34-7 last week behind defense and the running game, so expect that to their primary formula going forward. The game's over/under is currently set at 47 points, a number that could be reached if both teams maintain their recent momentum offensively.
