Bears' Offensive Woes
In Chicago, the biggest story has been the struggling offense, led by Mitch Trubisky. He's thrown only five touchdowns this season, and while he's completing a solid 64.6% of his passes, he's averaging 5.6 yards per attempt. That's the lowest in the three seasons he's been in the NFL.
.@ChicagoBears better be working overtime on these routes and the throws. I mean from sun up to sun down. @TGdadon1 needs to join this offense yesterday. These plays that are there have to get executed. Let’s go #Bears. You are better than this. #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/IkHkiQzzFw

The offensive numbers have suffered along with him. The Bears are averaging only 18.3 points and 281.4 yards per game. With 388 yards of total offense against the Chargers last Sunday, it was the first time all season that the Bears eclipsed the 300-yard mark.
What's the Best Bet?
While Trubisky and the Bears' offense has had a tough 2019 up to this point, this could be a spot where things turn around. The Eagle defense is 14th in yards allowed per game (346.6), and only 21st in points allowed per game (24.9).
Meanwhile, the Bear offense has actually been better on the road than it has at home. The running game averages nearly a full yard per carry more, from 3.2 to 4.1 away from Soldier Field.
Trubisky is better on the road as well. At home, he completes only 62% of his passes and has a passer rating of of 75.1. When they travel, he has completion percentage of 70.1% and a passer rating of 96.3.
Earlier today Bears safety Eddie Jackson was on 670 The Score and said that it sucks to hear Bears fans booing.
Jackson: "Y'all cheering, then y'all boo. Just pick a side. Y'all gonna ride with us or not. We aren't playing for them anymore. We playing for us and the true fans."

It's not often that playing on the road is a positive, but for a quarterback and offense that are facing mounting pressure to produce, and a home fan base that has been vocal about their frustrations, Trubisky and co. have proven to be better when they're away from the Chicago pressure-cooker.
Pick: Bears +4 (-103)
