NFL Odds Week 4: Bears vs. Cowboys

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Cowboys are field-goal favorites over the Bears for week 4's Monday Night Football matchup.

The Dallas Cowboys are field-goal favorites this week as they host the Chicago Bears in Cowboys Stadium for Monday Night Football. Last week, the Cowboys were 7.5-point favorites over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but did not cover in a 16-10 victory.

The opening line pegged the Cowboys as 3.5-point favorites and has stuck there so far. As seen on both OddsShark and the SB Nation NFL odds page, some lines stayed at 3.5 while others moved down slightly to 3 as some money came in on the Bears.

The over-under point total is 41½ points on most books after opening at 45, which means bettors expect the score to line up more closely with each team's scoring averages so far this season. Chicago is averaging just under 25 points per game, while the 2-1 Cowboys are scoring just under 16 points per game.

A key matchup of the game looks to be the Bears' passing offense against the Cowboys' defense. Dallas boasts the second-best pass defense in the league, while the Jay Cutler led Bears passing game has stumbled out of the gate, currently ranked 28th.
