The Chicago Bears (2-2) visit the Las Vegas Raiders (3-1) Sunday of Week 5 for a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff at Allegiant Stadium. Below, we look at the Bears vs. Raiders odds and lines, and make our best NFL picks, predictions and bets.
Chicago is coming off a 24-14 home win over the Detroit Lions. The Bears covered the spread as 3-point favorites with the Under (41.5) cashing. Behind QB Justin Fields‘ 209 passing yards and RB David Montgomery‘s 106 rushing yards, the Bears finished with 373 total yards, a big upgrade from the 47 yards accumulated in a 26-6 loss at the Cleveland Browns in Week 3.
Montgomery, who had 2 rushing TDs against Detroit and ranks fifth in the NFL with 309 rushing yards, will be out four to five weeks due to a knee sprain.
Las Vegas suffered its first loss of the season with a 28-14 setback at the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football. The Raiders didn’t cover the spread as 3-point underdogs and the Under (52) hit.
Trailing 21-0 at halftime, the Raiders scored twice in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 21-14, but they couldn’t get any closer. QB Derek Carr finished with 196 passing yards, 2 TDs and 1 pick in the loss.

Bears at Raiders odds, lines, predictions and picks
Raiders 27, Bears 13
The call is for the Raiders (-240) to win, but the juice isn’t worth the risk.
LAS VEGAS -5.5 (-110) is the STRONGEST PLAY – 1½ times your usual wager.
Despite having short rest, coming off the MNF game, the Raiders shouldn’t have a problem taking this one, especially with the Bears ground game missing Montgomery.
Chicago’s offense won’t be able to hang and likely won’t score more than one touchdown.
UNDER 44.5 (-105) is the way to go.
Until Week 4, the Bears hadn’t scored more than 2 touchdowns in a game. They scored 3 Sunday, but two of them were from Montgomery.
They rank 30th in the league with 16.0 points per game and are last with 114.3 passing yards per game.
As long as the Bears defense doesn’t tire, the Under should be OK against a decent Raiders offense. Chicago is 10th with 22.8 points allowed per game.
