If you're considering some last-minute betting research for the Chicago Bears vs. Los Angeles Chargers game on Sunday, here's the latest information you need to make an informed bet. The game is scheduled to kick off at 7:20 p.m. CT and will be televised on NBC.

The Chicago Bears come into this matchup with a 2-5 record, having recently snapped a 10-game home losing streak with a dominant win over the Las Vegas Raiders. They are aiming for back-to-back wins for the first time under head coach Matt Eberflus. Once again, undrafted rookie Tyson Bagent will start in place of the injured Justin Fields.
Here are the current betting lines from BetMGM:
- Point spread: Bears +8.5
- Money line: Bears +340, Chargers -450
- Over-under: 46.5
Injury report:
Bears:
- QB Justin Fields (out, right thumb)
- LT Braxton Jones (out, neck)
- RG Nate Davis (out, ankle)
- CB Terell Smith (out, illness)
- S Eddie Jackson (questionable, foot)
- S Jaquan Brisker (questionable, illness)
- OL Dan Feeney (questionable, knee)
Chargers:
- TE Gerald Everett (questionable, hip)
- WR Joshua Palmer (questionable, knee)
- S Aloha Gilman (questionable, heel)
- WR Jalen Guyton (questionable, knee)
- DB Deane Leonard (questionable, hamstring)
- DL Otto Ogbonnia (questionable, knee)
Advice and prediction:
Both the Bears and the Chargers have struggled this season, with a combined record of 4-9. Chicago is coming off a strong win against the Raiders, led by Tyson Bagent in his first NFL start. Meanwhile, the Chargers are looking to bounce back from a tough loss to the Chiefs.
While the Chargers are significant favorites at -8.5, it's a risky bet given both teams' inconsistent performances this season. Both defenses have allowed over 25 points per game, suggesting a potential high-scoring game. In their last two games, the Bears' defense has allowed an average of only 12.5 points per game.
Considering these factors, I'm leaning towards taking the over in this matchup. However, I still believe the Chargers will come out on top in a closely contested game.
Prediction: Chargers 27, Bears 23
