Both teams come into the game playing well so it should be an exciting pro football betting contest.
NFL betting favors the Falcons by 3-points on Sunday night with a total of 45.5. Both teams come into this NFL betting game at 3-1. The Bears have been getting strong play from quarterback Jay Cutler who has completed more than 70% of this passes over the last few games. He has thrown for 7 TDs and only one interception in recent NFL betting wins. The only concern for the Bears on offense is a poor running game that was supposed to be very good. Matt Forte has just one TD this pro football betting season.
On the other side it is Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan who is rolling along. He threw for 329 yards in a rout of San Francisco last week. Wide receiver Roddy White had a franchise-record 210 yards in the pro football betting slaughter. Michael Turner is having a very good year again as he already has 323 yards rushing in four games.
Neither defense has been stellar this season so there could be some points in this NFL betting matchup. Atlanta has been very good at home recently in NFL betting. The Falcons are 9-1 at home since the start of last season. They defeated the Bears 22-20 last year in Week 6. Chicago has a 12-11 lead in the series against the Falcons.
Chicago has been good in October recently in NFL betting as they are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games in October. They have not been that good on the road though in NFL betting as they are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. They are a very poor road underdog in NFL betting. The Bears are 0-4-1 in their last 5 games as a road underdog. Atlanta on the other side in NFL betting has been very good at home. The Falcons are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games.
As you consider the pro football betting total, keep in mind that eight of the last Chicago road games have gone under. Conversely, 10 of the last 14 Atlanta home games have gone over. The last five meetings between the two teams have gone under the NFL betting total.
