Chicago improved to 5-1 SU as an underdog last week by upsetting Miami 16-0 as a 2.5-point underdog. The Bears' defense smothered Miami, holding them to 187 total yards while recording six sacks. Julius Peppers had his best game since joining Chicago this season with three sacks.
The Eagles went to Chicago last season and edged the Bears 24-20 as a 3.5-point favorite. Philadelphia is a 3-point favorite this weekend, and in their last eight games versus the Bears Philadelphia is 6-2 SU but only 4-4 ATS. Totals bettors should also know that four of the last five games between Philadelphia and Chicago have gone UNDER the total. They should also know Pro Bowl corner Assante Samuel is out for Philly.
If you're looking for a possible ATS upset this weekend Tampa Bay at Baltimore looks like a solid bet.
The Buccaneers may be 7-3 on the season, but Sportsbook.ag still has them down as a 7.5-point underdog this weekend against the Ravens. Tampa Bay is also 7-3 ATS this season (including 5-2 ATS as the underdog), compared to the Ravens' mediocre 5-4-1 ATS mark.

The Ravens had a laugher last week against the league-worst Panthers and easily won 37-13 as a 13.5-point favorite. Joe Flacco passed for 301 yards with a touchdown, and Ray Rice had 65 rushing yards and a TD on 19 carries.
Tampa Bay has been the best road team in the NFL for bettors this season with a perfect 5-0 record ATS. The Ravens have won seven straight at home but have only gone 4-3 ATS, which includes a 2-2 ATS mark this season.
