Week 9 brings us the Chicago Bears vs Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football. The game has a Predicted Combined Score of 42.6 points with the Predicted Combined Score breaking down to Bears 15.5 – Steelers 27.1. The numbers predict Pittsburgh will Win, Cover the Spread, and the Total will go Over. The consensus spread is 7, and the consensus total is 40 points.
Now, it’s time to figure out our game narrative. I do not focus on the Over/Under in a game as I like to look at the opportunities. That means that I focus on targets and attempts. If I use the Odd Shark Numbers to build my narrative, that means I expect the Bears to lose. So the Steelers should be ahead and will probably want to slow down the pace.
As a Bears fan, even I have to admit they are a mess. Justin Fields is as inconsistent as they come and we don’t have much to work with here.
Ben Roethlisberger has thrown two touchdowns in a game just once this year for the Steelers. Najee Harris has 140 total yards or a touchdown in six straight games for the Steelers. Chicago has given up the 13th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks this season.
Now that we have some players to throw in a lineup, it’s time to build your lineups. While I do not give out lineups, I will give out my core plays each week for you to construct a lineup around. Tonight the core players are:
I think the game goes UNDER the 40 projected points, the Steelers win, and that the Steelers cover the spread.
