CHICAGO BEARS @ PITTSBURGH STEELERS

The 3-5 Bears travel to the Steel city to face the 4-3 Steelers. Can Chicago snap a three game losing skid, or will the Steelers make it four wins on the bounce and really thrust themselves amongst the postseason hopefuls in the AFC?

The Bears are winless in four, and things don’t get much better for them this week on the road to an in form Steelers side. Justin Fields arguably had the best game of his young career last week in the loss to San Francisco, but will face a sterner test here against a playmaking Steelers defense.

Pittsburgh have strung together four straight wins in response to what was a three game skid. The emergence of rookie RB Najee Harris has been primary to the Steelers upturn in form. The former Alabama ball carrier has scored TDs in four straight games, and has five in his last six. Najee has also become the spearhead of the offense, carrying the rock over 20 times in each of the last three games, helping take some of the burden off of an ageing Ben Roethlisberger.

Spread: Steelers -7.0

Total: 40.0

Game Prediction: Steelers 21 – 13 Bears

Best Bet: Najee Harris over 19.5 Rushing Attempts & Anytime TD @ 7/4 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
