Gambling911.com has your MNF betting odds for the Bears vs. Chargers along with your Daily Fantasy NFL picks. The total was a high 49.
What to Consider With the Chicago Bears - The Bears have allowed the seventh-most points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season, and rank 24th against the pass. The Bears rank second in defending backs in the passing game. They are also decent against tight ends.
What to Consider With the San Diego Chargers – San Diego has the second worst run defense in the league and, as such, it is a no brainer to go with Matt Forte at under $7K, if not for the fact that he is out this week with an injury. They are also among the weakest defenders against solid wide receivers and even remotely decent tight ends.
Who to Play –
Jeremy Langford ($4K) – The rookie will start for the injured Matt Forte. Langford just has to be remotely decent at this price against a very bad run defense. The experts are suggesting he’s a bargain in Week 7 and we see the same thing.
Langford already has a pair of one-yard touchdown runs this season.
Alshon Jeffery ($6.8K) – A solid pick and one of the best this week. Jeffery caught 0-of-15 targets for 116 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 8 loss to the Vikings. He’ll face a Chargers team that – on paper at least – should improve that production even more.
Martellus Bennett ($4.9K) – Bennett finished second on the Bears in targets but didn’t come anywhere near the production of wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. He should still have mid-level production against this Chargers squad.
Philip Rivers ($6.9K) – Excellent play here against a team that cannot defend against opposing QBs. Rivers is on a record-setting pace this season in terms of passing yards
