If you said a month ago that Week 10’s Denver Broncos-Chicago Bears contest could be a close one, you would’ve been laughed at. But thanks to a bizarre Week 9 that saw a ridiculous amount of underdogs triumph and some big players crumble, the Bears and Broncos could be headed for a tight battle at Soldier Field.

<li>The Broncos are 4-1 SU in their last five games on the road.</li>
<li>The Bears are 3-0 ATS in their last three games after winning as an underdog.</li>
Peyton Manning looked atrocious in last week’s 29-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, tossing four interceptions before being replaced by Brock Osweiler. On Monday it was revealed that Manning was battling a foot injury, which has ruled him out for this game. Osweiler will start in his place.
