Bears open as huge underdogs vs. Cowboys in Week 8

The Chicago Bears (3-4) will battle the Dallas Cowboys (5-2) on Sunday,

where Chicago will look to build on an impressive prime-time win where all phases excelled.

Despite the Bears coming off that dominating 33-14 win over the New England Patriots (3-4),

 oddsmakers don’t feel confident about their chances on the road against the Cowboys.

The Bears have opened as 9.5-point road underdogs against the Cowboys in Week 8, according to Tipico Sportsbook. The over/under is set at 42.5.

Following their impressive Week 7 win, Chicago has plenty to build on.

The Bears offense scored their most points (33) since 2020, and Justin Fields put together his best game as a pro.

 On defense, they continue to be one of the best second-half teams in the NFL and forced another four turnovers. But they’ll be tested against a dominant Cowboys team.

This is the sixth time this season that Chicago are underdogs (previously against the San Francisco 49ers,

 They were favored in Week 3 against the Houston Texans and Week 6 against the Commanders.

Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots).
