Sportsbooks around the country had a strong performance against NFL bettors again in Week 7, when the Dallas Cowboys (-1), New England Patriots (-3) and Seattle Seahawks (-3.5) not only failed to cover the spread, but lost straight-up as well, killing many teaser and moneyline wagers. The Buffalo Bills (-9.5) and Cleveland Browns (-3.5) additionally burned many bettors as they each won their respective games, but failed to cover the spread.

The Vegas Whispers sharps, shared here only at Sports Illustrated, enjoyed an incredible ‘PERFECT’ weekend with a 4-0 college football Saturday against the spread (ATS), and then followed up by going 3-0 ATS on Sunday, and now stand at 41-25 ATS in NFL wagering this season. It was another extremely profitable weekend overall with Frankie Taddeo’s information as well as Casey Olson’s UFC 254 plays, which led to a remarkable 19-4 ATS on all released plays for the week for all SI PRO members!

In terms of NFL totals for the week, those expecting more points scored came out slightly ahead as the games went 7-6-1 to the under. Eight games, once again surpassed the 50-point mark, with the Seahawks vs Cardinals and Browns and Bengals leading the way tied with 71 combined points.

Later tonight, NFL fans will see the Chicago Bears (5-1 SU; 4-2 ATS) travel to SoFi Stadium to take on the Los Angeles Rams (4-2 SU; 3-3 ATS). The Rams are now 6-point home favorites with a total sitting on the game at 44.5 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Chicago Bears at Los Angeles Rams

Moneyline: CHI (+225) | LAR (-265)

Spread: CHI +6 (-110) | LAR: -6 (-110)

Total: 44.5 Over: (-110) | Under: 44.5 (-110)

Location: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, California

Game Info: Monday October 26, 2020 8:15pm ET / 5:15pm PT | ESPN

On the offensive side for Chicago, fantasy owners will want to get QB Nick Foles, RB David Montgomery and WR Allen Robinson into their starting lineups. The biggest beneficiary on the passing end will likely be Robinson who has seen no less than nine targets in any game this season, leading to double-digit PPR production in five of six games. Running back David Montgomery has emerged as a top-20 player at the position in PPR formats with double-digit efforts in three consecutive games.

On the Rams side, fantasy owners will be starting QB Jared Goff, RB Darrell Henderson and wideouts Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. Expect the team to lean heavily on the passing game with Goff who ranks inside the top-15 among all quarterbacks in fantasy football thanks in part to his 10:4 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Fantasy owners will be looking for a bounce back game from Kupp who had previously posted 11-plus PPR fantasy points in four consecutive games prior to his quiet Week 6 (3 rec / 11 yards) against the 49ers. Woods has steadily been a reliable bet to find the end zone with a score in three of his last four games and will look to build upon his season-high (10) in targets against San Francisco.

Nearly 73% of the all money to come in on the Monday Night contest have come in support of the Rams who have now become 6-point favorites after being as high as 7.5-points. The total which opened in Vegas at 47 has seen strong support to the under (72%), and has dropped currently standing at 44.5 around nearly all shops.
