Alshon Jeffrey Bears

The Chicago Bears hope to follow up their first straight up win of the season with a fourth consecutive road victory over Indianapolis when they visit the Colts this weekend in an NFL Week 5 betting matchup at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of the Colts' last 15 games as favorite.
  • The Colts are 5-1 SU in their last six games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The Bears are 2-11 SU and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games as an underdog of 5.0 or less.

After opening with three straight SU and against the spread losses, the Bears discovered an offensive touch in last weekend's 17-14 win over Detroit as 3-point home underdogs. Quarterback Bryan Hoyer has thrown for over 300 yards in consecutive starts, while the defense held an opponent to under 21 points for the first time in nine outings.

The Bears are 6-2 SU in their past eight against Indianapolis, including a pair of outright wins as betting underdogs. Chicago is also a perfect 3-0 SU and ATS on the road against the Colts since their move to Indianapolis, surrendering just 14.3 points per game in those contests.

The Indianapolis offensive line allowed pivot Andrew Luck to be sacked six times in last week's 30-27 loss to Jacksonville as 1-point chalk. The Colts have failed to record consecutive SU wins in their past seven as favorites, and are a dismal 3-8 ATS in their last 11 when getting the nod at the sportsbooks.
