Bears open as underdogs vs. Jets in Week 12

The Chicago Bears (3-8) will battle the New York Jets (6-4) on Sunday, where Chicago is looking to break a four-game losing streak.

With the Bears coming off a 27-24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons (5-6) and quarterback Justin Fields nursing a left shoulder injury, oddsmakers are leaning in favor of the Jets in this Week 12 matchup.

The Bears have opened as 4.5-point road underdogs against the Jets in Week 12, according to Tipico Sportsbook. The over/under is set at 41.

All eyes will be on the quarterback situation for both teams. For Chicago, Fields suffered a left shoulder injury that could force him to miss time. If that’s the case, it would be Trevor Siemian getting the nod. For New York, Zach Wilson’s starting job is up-in-the-air following a brutal outing in Week 11. If the Jets bench Wilson, they’d likely turn to backup Mike White.

This is the ninth time this season that Chicago are underdogs (previously against the San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons). They were favored in Week 3 against the Houston Texans, Week 6 against the Commanders and Week 10 against the Lions.
