Bet on the NFLEast Rutherford's MetLife Stadium will be the host to a football game for the second day in a row on Monday when the New York Jets take on the Chicago Bears in a Monday night game right after a Giants game. This marks the first time that the two teams have competed against one another since 2010 when the Bears won 38-34. This marks the first time that the Bears have played at the field turf-based field of MetLife Stadium.
The Jets have dealt with some rather close games this year. They beat Oakland 19-14 and lost to Green Bay 31-24 this year. The Jets lost on the -6.5 spread to Oakland and had a push on a spread for the Packers game though. This comes after a strong finish to the 2013 season where they won three of their last four games and won against the spread on three of them. The Jets had been beating the Packers for a good part of last week's game.
The Jets have taken the under on four of their last five games on field turf surfaces. They have still taken the over on ten of their last eleven Week 3 games.
The Chicago Bears had a massive comeback against San Francisco this past Sunday night as they won 28-20, thus beating the +7 spread and narrowly moving over the over/under total of 47 points for the game.
The Bears have lost ATS on their last four field turf games. They have won only one of their last eight games ATS when going after an ATS game from the week before.
The game has a very close line as the New York Jets have a -2.5 edge for the game. The Jets also have a -150 moneyline total while the Bears are rather close for the game at +130. The over/under for the game will be at 45.5 points for this game. The Jets will be hoping to get a good comeback for this week while the Bears are looking to keep the momentum on their side going.
