This should be a solid test for the Bears. Justin Fields is coming off his first win the NFL. Despite his stats looking meh on paper, Fields actually played fairly well. Had he thrown a touchdown or two instead of the team rushing it in three times, then boxscore watchers would have a different tune.

The Raiders struggled last week versus the Los Angeles Chargers. They tried to make it interesting by scoring 14 points in the third quarter to bring the game within seven. However, the Chargers put the game away in the fourth quarter to beat the Raiders 28-14.

The Raiders are giving up an average of 25 points per game. The Bears have given up 22 points per game. The offensive efficiency on the otherhand is much different. Chicago is averaging only 16 points per game, while the Raiders are averaging 26. No wonder the Bears are not getting much respect in this game.

Bears Injury Report vs Raiders Week 5

The Chicago Bears will be welcoming back Danny Trevathan this week. As he was activated from injured reserve, David Montgomery was placed on it and will not be back for four to five weeks. Akiem Hicks (groin) did not travel with the team and is OUT. This is a big blow to the defense, but they seemed to play okay without him most of last week too. Chicago will also be without tight ends, Jesse James (personal) and J.P. Holtz (quad) and linebacker, Joel Iyiegbuniwe (hamstring)

It also appears that Tashaun Gipson will be back this week as he’s been a full participant all week. It will be interesting to see how things go. He is dealing with a hamstring issue and is questionable. Deon Bush has stepped in admirably while he is out though and could quickly take back over if Gipson is not up to par. Khalil Mack is also supposed to be playing but is listed as questionable with both foot and ribs injuries.

For the Raiders, they will be without Damon Arnette (groin), Derek Carrier (pectoral) and Trayvon Mullen, Jr. (toe). The Raiders have just as long of a list as the Chicago Bears when it comes to injuries this week, but no one else seems to be hurt enough to miss the game.

Bears vs Raiders Odds, Spread, Over/Under, & Betting Pick Week 5

WynnBET’s Week 5 NFL odds have shifted a bit. Early in the week, the Raiders were -5.0 favorites, but that number has moved to -5.5. The Bears will need to lose by five or fewer points to cover that spread. If they win outright, then clearly they will also cover and it means anyone who bet the Moneyline will also win with +250 odds (bet $100 to win $205). This shifted from +185 on Monday and I think could be a legit outcome.

The over/under has also changed slightly from the beginning of the week. Instead of 45.5, the total dropped to just 45.0. This essentially means both teams would need to score roughly 23 points or more. The only other way it happens is if one team blows out the other. With the Chicago Bears leading in the league in sacks (yep, shocking, I know), I don’t see a blowout happening.

My gut tells me to take Chicago, but my head says to take the Raiders. If the team can follow a similar game plan as they did last week, then I truly do believe the Bears can win. Looking ahead at their upcoming schedule, the Bears need this win. I am going to lean on them once again.
