The Chicago Bears will be looking to keep pace in the tight NFC North when they face the Miami Dolphins at Soldier Field this week.

The 3-2 Bears handed Atlanta a 27-12 defeat as 3-point road underdogs last Sunday, handing the Falcons their first home loss of the season. But Chicago has struggled at home, winless in its last three, SU and ATS, and is a dismal 1-10-1 ATS in its last 12 home dates.

Aside from their 38-14 win over Oakland as 4-point road favorites at London's Wembley Stadium in Week 4, the Dolphins have struggled on the road, 3-5 SU and ATS in their last eight, but the Fish have enjoyed success in recent matchups with NFC North opponents, winning their last four road dates SU and ATS.
