Bet NFL with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
It’s not too often that you see a 5-1 NFL team as a 6-point underdog.
That’s the case with the Bears tonight, as they take on the 4-2 Rams in Los Angeles on Monday Night Football on ESPN. Chicago had originally opened at +5.5 at William Hill. The Rams are priced at -260 on the moneyline while the Bears are listed +220.
“We need the favorite tonight, that’s rare. We’ll definitely be rooting for the Rams,” said Nick Bogdanovich, Director of Trading for William Hill US. “The Bears are probably the biggest public underdog for this week. The big liability is on the moneyline, we’ll really need the Rams to win outright.
Many William Hill bettors believe Chicago will not only cover, but also pull off the upset. The Bears are pulling in 65% of the total number of tickets and 62% of the total dollars wagered among all spread bets against the Rams, as well as 66% of the total number of tickets for all moneyline bets tonight.
