UPDATE 5 P.M. ET WEDNESDAY: K.C. hit TwinSpires' NFL odds Week 3 market as 13-point chalk and is down a tick to -13.5. The Chiefs are taking 70% of spread tickets, but just 54% of spread dollars early.

"Sharp play on Chicago +13," Lucas said.

The total dropped from a 49 opener to 47.5, then fell another half-point to 47 this afternoon. The Over is seeing 65% of tickets, while 56% of money is on the Under.

"Sharp play on Under 49," Lucas said.

UPDATE 11:30 P.M. ET SUNDAY: To no one's surprise, Kansas City bounced back from its Week 1 home setback to Detroit. The Chiefs (1-1 SU and ATS) were 3-point favorites at Jacksonville and won 17-9.

Chicago (0-2 SU and ATS) was a 1-point pup at Tampa Bay and lost 27-17.

"I anticipate the Chiefs being tied to a ton of moneyline parlays. So even if we take some straight bets on the Bears plus the points, I think we'll be rooting for the Bears to shock the world," Degnon said.

The line is stable tonight at -12.5, but the total is on the move early in The SuperBook's NFL Week 3 odds market. Within a half-hour of opening, the total dipped from 50.5 to 50, then 49.5.

Bears vs Chiefs Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

The Bears are another Kitchen Sink team at 0-2 both SU and ATS so they fit all the trends.

It's been quite a tumultuous week in Chicago. Alan Williams resigned as defensive coordinator, Justin Fields criticized the coaching, the Bears' HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!

Fields had at least 53 rushing yards in nine of 10 games to end last season. I know that. You know that. Why don't Chicago's coaches seem to know that?

Whenever an athlete whines about getting enough shots or catches, they magically seem to get fat and happy immediately the following game. If Justin says he wants to run, I say we let him run.

Pick: Justin Fields Over 55.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
