The Chicago Bears (0-2) continued their terrible run at home in a 29-14 loss as three-point favorites on Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. They now travel to the state of Texas for the second time in three weeks as they visit the Dallas Cowboys (1-1) in the Sunday Night Football matchup.

The Bears will face a Dallas team that has struggled at AT&T Stadium against the spread as seven-point road underdogs at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

The Cowboys are coming off a 27-23 win over the Washington Redskins as three-point road underdogs last week after losing their season opener 20-19 to the New York Giants as one-point home dogs. They are just 2-10-2 ATS in their past 14 home games, although they have gone 5-2 straight up the last seven times after winning as an underdog in their previous game.

Cowboys rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott led the way against the Redskins, combining for two rushing touchdowns in the win.

While Chicago has lost 11 of its last 12 games at Soldier Field, the team has played better on the road, covering six of its previous eight away from home.

NFL odds: Vikings, Redskins take to the road as Week 3 underdogs

The status of Bears quarterback Jay Cutler for Sunday night is in doubt due to a sprained thumb on his throwing hand. Cutler has won in his last two trips to Dallas, with the road team going 4-1 SU and ATS in the past five meetings overall, according to the OddsShark NFL Database.

Before that game kicks off though, there are a couple of other intriguing matchups in the late games on Sunday.

Two unbeaten teams from the state of Pennsylvania will square off in Philadelphia when the Eagles (2-0) host the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) as 3.5-point home underdogs. The Steelers are 1-4 ATS in their past five meetings with the Eagles.

Philadelphia won its season opener 29-10 over the Cleveland Browns as four-point home chalk before beating Chicago with rookie quarterback Carson Wentz again leading the way. Wentz has yet to throw an interception through the first two games of his young career.

The Seattle Seahawks (1-1) fell 9-3 to the Los Angeles Rams last week on the road as 5.5-point favorites and are listed as 9.5-point chalk at home against the San Francisco 49ers (1-1). The Seahawks have won the past five meetings with the 49ers and covered the last 10 in the series dating back to 2011 with the under cashing in six of seven.
