Week 16 NFL odds: Bears open as favorites over Cardinals

The Cardinals will be underdogs as they look for a second-straight win.

USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals opened as 5 1/2 point underdogs at home for their Week 16 matchup with the Chicago Bears. Early money has been coming in for Chicago, as the line has moved to six at some sites. The Bears come in struggling, having lost five of their last six games after starting 7-1. The Cardinals know all about falling after a hot start, as they endured a nine-game losing streak after a 4-0 record.

Both teams have identical 6-7-1 records against the spread, with Chicago having lost three-straight ATS and straight up. the Cardinals have been 3-4 ATS at home, while the Bears are 3-4-1 ATS on the road.

The total is unsurprisingly low, as Arizona and Chicago both possess strong defenses. It opened at 36 1/2. The Cardinals have went over just five of 14 games, with three of those coming at home. Chicago has hit the over half the time overall, and four out of six on the road.
