Best bets for Monday Night Football: Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Chicago Bears to wrap up Week 9 on Monday Night Football (8:15 ET on ESPN).

This week, ESPN betting analysts Doug Kezirian, Eric Moody, Tyler Fulghum and Anita Marks, along with Football Outsiders' Aaron Schatz and Stats & Information's Seth Walder offer up his best bets.

Odds courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook as of Sunday, unless otherwise noted.


Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers (-6.5, 39)

Moody: In terms of total completions, Justin Fields' last two games have been his best, and he has thrown TD passes in three of his past four games. He completed 19 of 27 passes for 175 yards in Week 8 against the 49ers. In addition, Fields carried the ball 10 times for 103 yards in what was the best performance of his young career. With the Bears providing him more opportunities as a rusher, his positive momentum should continue against the Steelers.

Walter Payton was the last Chicago player to score a rushing and passing touchdown in a game (Week 15 of 1984, against the Packers). Fields has a good chance of reproducing this feat against the Steelers, who over the last five games have allowed Baker Mayfield, Geno Smith, Teddy Bridgewater, Aaron Rodgers, and Joe Burrow to average 228.4 passing yards and 1.6 passing touchdowns.
