Mims' Monday Night Football Picks: Bears at Steelers with Justin Fields and Ben Roethlisberger prop bets
The NFL Monday Night Football game has the Pittsburgh Steelers playing the Chicago Bears. The numbers are Steelers -7.0 with a total of 39.0. The money line is Steelers-300 & Bears +240. Pittsburgh is the home team.
Trends: The Steelers have won three straight games. Bears have lost 3 in a row. Bears are 2-6 against the spread when they play a team with a winning record. The under is 6-1 in the Steelers last seven games.
59% of the action is on the Steelers. 54% of the money is on the over.
Coaching Matchup: Mike Tomlin over Matt Nagy.
Prop Action: Justin Fields over 180 yards passing is -115. Take him under. Ben Roethlisberger under 34.5 passing attempts. The price is -120. Big Ben goes under. Look for the Steelers to take the lead in the first half. Get the Steelers -3.5 in the first half at a price of -115.
My take on the game: The Bears are clearly struggling and are rumored to be looking at future head coaching candidates. The Steelers are winning ugly and in tightly played games. Bears QB Justin Fields will have his problems with the Steelers defense. Take the Steelers minus the points and the over.
