Time: 8:15 p.m. ET

Week 7 of the 2022 NFL season includes a Monday Night Football showdown between the Chicago Bears and New England Patriots. The Bears' dreadful season continued last week as they extended their losing streak to three games following a 12-7 loss to the Washington Commanders.

Meanwhile, the Patriots had a lot of celebrating to do in their 38-15 victory against the Cleveland Browns. Backup QB Bailey Zappe had the best game of his young career, going 24-of-34 in the pocket for 309 yards and a passing touchdown. Time will tell if he can build off that performance.

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
Moneyline: CHI: (+300) | NE: (-375)
Spread: CHI: +7.5 (-106) | NE: -7.5 (-114)
Total: 39.5 —Over: (-110) | Under: (-110)

The Patriots enter this contest as major home favorites on the moneyline and spread on FanDuel Sportsbook's odds. This 8:15 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 39.5, which is tied for the lowest of the Week 7 projected totals.

Bears vs Patriots Prediction & Pick

This is a matchup that's easily winnable for the Patriots. The Bears have been among the NFL's worst teams this season, averaging just 15.5 points per game (second-worst) while finishing with 20 or fewer points in four contests thus far.

You would've thought Tom Brady was back under center for the Pats last week with how well Zappe was playing. New England has now scored 67 points in their No. 2 QB's last two starts, which is a trend that might continue given that the Bears are tied for the seventh-worst road defense this season.

Unless the Patriots completely forgot how to play football, there's no reason to believe tha they won't crush the Bears on Monday.

Final Score Prediction: Patriots: 27 | Bears: 10

Bears vs Patriots Betting Trends

- Chicago is 0-5 straight up in its last five games against New England.
- New England is 5-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last six games against the NFC.
- The total has hit the under in four of Chicago's last six games.
- The total has hit the over in seven of New England's last 10 games.

Bears vs Patriots Best Bet

With how bad the Bears have looked this season, I'm expecting the Patriots to win this one by at least two possessions. There's also the extra incentive to land Bill Belichick the 325th win of his career, moving him up to No. 2 on the all-time coaching list.

While I expect the Patriots to cover the 7.5-point spread, I'm advocating for a New England win margin of 14+ points at +145 to be the best bet.

Bet: Patriots Win Margin - 14+ Points (+145)
