BetMGM: Saints climb to 10-point favorites vs. Bears

The New Orleans Saints opened as heavy favorites to defeat the Chicago Bears in the Wild-Card Round, but the oddsmakers at BetMGM have only heightened expectations as the week has continued. New Orleans is now favored by 10 points over the visiting Bears, with an over/under of 47.5 — tied for the third-highest total of the week.

And that suggests a final score in the neighborhood of Saints 28, Bears 18, which would be a much more comfortable finish for New Orleans compared to their Week 8 meeting (the Saints escaped with an overtime win of 26-23). Here’s hoping the Saints come close to that.

Other notable spreads around the league this week: the Tennessee Titans are 3.5-point underdogs against the Baltimore Ravens in what’s expected to be the highest-scoring game of the week with a 54.5-point over/under. Next-best is the Buffalo Bills’ matchup with the Indianapolis Colts, who are 6.5-point underdogs facing an over/under of 51.5.
